“Average restaurents”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013 via mobile

Been to 1000s Chinese Restaurents and my occupation is Executive Chef. Food was average and came here as believed reviews but I guess some people easily pleased. Yes everyone has their own expectations and opinions based on their experience and taste. I would not return. Not the place for romantic meal as lighting far to bright . The BBQ spare ribs really worst ever had as completely dried and bland.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

Stayed in a hotel just outside Dumfries last week-end, and asked one of the staff, which was the best Chinese restuarant in town. She recommended the Hong Kong Star. I was not disappointed. I think it was on of the best Chinese meals I have had. The service was good and I thought it very good value. If ever back in Dumfries, I will certainly be visiting the Hong Kong Star again.

“Awesome Chinese meal!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013 via mobile

I have recently ate out here with my family. It was very cheap and lovely beautiful food only came to £48 for 5 of us the have us unlimited prawn crackers without charge too. I had a chilli beef and the meat was beautiful melted in the mouth unlike most Chinese it wasn't tough of chewy was simply lovely. The curry was nice flavourful and not too runny like u get in many. The service was great too always someone around to get more drinks or condiments!! Overall found it really enjoyable meal and will be back..

“The staffs attitude is horrendous !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

The foods good, but the staff are very ignorant and cheeky, need to estimate their delivery times correctly! Waited 3 hours!
