Star House has a great location next to Wal-mart, Kohls and Costco and the 78 Hwy. Their services is very friendly and attentive. The food was served promptly and it was very tasty. Definetly would go there again!

We are happy with the food every time we eat at Star House. The service is always friendly and we always get our food quickly. There have been a few times that it has been super busy which slows them down a little bit, but generally it's really good.

Everyone around here eats at Star House. I would recommend them based on my experiences of the freshness of the food, and the cleanliness of the restaurant.
The selections are varied and tasty. We all love to meet here and it's a friendly place too.

This is very sad. The Star House used to be among the most highly recommended Chinese food eateries in San Diego County; judging by my experience today, that's no longer the case.

I ordered a curried chicken dish with an egg roll and fried rice; I'm finding it difficult to find the words to describe it.

The whole meal was tainted with some kind of off-flavor, I can't place it.

Perhaps it was spoiled meat; or maybe they got a bad batch of oil. I suppose it could have been that the meat was of some species other than chicken.

The only things I only know with any certainty is that I've never experienced a flavor so awful, and that I experienced nausea up after tasting the egg roll, some rice, and some curried chicken.

I hoped it was just a terrible one-time experience, but the staff convinced me: this restaurant has become a poor choice for dining.

After I informed them of the problem, they offered to make another plate- as though even if I still had an appetite, I'd be willing to risk throwing up a second time. They insisted on payment in full, even though the meal was uneaten.

There are plenty of hole-in-the-wall eateries of no great renown, some good and some bad; if this was one of those, I wouldn't bother writing this review. But this is a place that's received great acclaim. They have the articles and awards plastered all over their waiting area. Unfortunately, the restaurant that's covered in those articles is now a thing of the past.
