China Star Chinese Restaurant (Coral Springs)

Posted on December 13th, 2011 · Chinese Coral Springs

***** China Star Chinese Restaurant, 1430 Coral Ridge Drive, Coral Springs, Florida 33071, (954) 341-0088.

China Star Chinese Restaurant—actually the name should be, China Star Chinese Takeout Only…so don’t plan on spending a leisurely evening eating at the joint, ’cause you can’t.

The other night I “got” wonton soup, bbq ribs, fried dumplings, egg rollds, roast pork fried rice, general tso’s chicken, sweet & sour pork, pepper steak, shrimp in lobster sauce. Applying my-Brooklyn-Jewish circa 1950’s taste test—I’m gonna rate the food very good. If this one was closer to my house, I’d be a regular there. Just so you know, I thought that the egg rolls and general tso’s chicken were extra-good.

For you guys who live or work in China Star’s neighborhood–if you didn’t already know, now you know- about a really good Chinese takeout joint. You can check menu/prices at

China Star is open Monday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm, Sunday noon-10pm.

    Jeff, try Rainbow Palace on Oakland Park Blvd. expensive but probably the best chinese food in florida.

    About a year or so ago I read in the Sun Sentinel that China Star was on a list from a Chinese trade publication as one of the top 100 Chinese restaurants in the US. So I drove out to this one which is Coral Springs but really Tamarac border, took me a while to get there. I took out and frankly was not that impressed. I like China Sea (Coral Springs) and Bamboo Wok Coconut Creek as much or better. I dont know if it was an off day or what but China Star seemed like just another place.

    Hi Jeff!

    Just found your blog, and thought you’d enjoy my family’s favorite haunts (all in Boca Raton).

    New York Ice Cream- located off I-95 to Palmetto Park Road exit. You’ll see a Kmart Plaza on the left (also has a Publix in it)– well, in between the two, there’s a small family-owned joint named New York Ice Cream (or something similar). It’s delicious! The NY accents of the owners will help you feel at home if visiting, and the soft-serve ice cream will bring you back to the boardwalk.

    Also, if you feel like PIZZA for dinner, (and I know you do, based on the zillion Italian places you’ve eaten at), you must have a slice from Pizza Time (or better yet, get the Ziti!). It’s located next to the Walgreens off of 2nd Ave. and Camino Real. You gotta, but watch on weekends…it’s a circus!

    (The Chinese place next door is amazing also, the same couple has been running the show wok-style for at least a decade. It’s just delicious.)

    Keep on keepin’ on.
