“Outstanding food. I am not certain that we got exactly what we ordered because since The Golden Star goes not have an online menu, we were going from the photos posted by other reviewers of their menu. We ordered family dinner number five and House Special Chow Mein, so it is very possible the in house menu was different than the photos. My fault, next time I’ll ask. It didn’t matter, though, we were very happy with what we got and every dish was delicious! My criteria for a positive review is that first the food has to look and smell clean and fresh. Check! It did. Very good color and texture on the veggies, the meat was clean, the noodles and rice, perfect. Everything looked fresh and smelled wonderful. Next, it has to taste great and as evidence that the person preparing it cares about the food. Again, check! It tasted great! This is the best Chinese food we have had in quite awhile! Here’s hoping that all following visits get the same wonderful results!“

“Updated for our visit tonight. A beautiful piece of history, we have loved going there for many years but tonight was a terrible disappointment. The food was great as always but the service was atrocious. I had my grandchildren with us so I didn't make a fuss, but we will return in the next few weeks and if it's unacceptable service I will take it up with the owner. March of 2022 update. We will continue to go, the service wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. We love the food and we're old Boise people so we like the old places. Go for the food, you won't be disappointed.“

“A long time staple to the Treasure Valley, and delicious food. Have literally been coming here for 25+ years and still as I remembered. Fantastic! Pork Hong Kong Special is like no other, and something unchanged over the decades. Literally ate here 2 nights in a row just to pacify a craving. Highly recommend.“
