  • I am always surprised at how much food we get for the price! The food is always fresh, and so hot when we get it home that we can barely open it! We can always eat all our favourites without feeling too full or hungry later. We'll be back, again and again!

  • Order: Meal for 4

  • Oh my goodness! This is the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever visited! How this restaurant got 4 stars is beyond me. This is even worse than any of the Chinese fastfood places I have visited. They don't even know how to make Kung pao chicken right. Forget about all the other dishes. For 3.75 I can get a small order of Kung Pao chicken from any Chinese fast food place in the U.S. and none of it would be this bad. And their fried tofu has expired and is almost sour. I did not eat it otherwise I would have been food poisoned. I can honest say even I can cook better than the cook at this restaurant. I don't know how they can be in existence since 1975, that's what it says on the menu. Unbelievable. It is not cheap either. And after I order kung pao chicken I was told the rice was extra, $2.50 for a really small bowl. Thinking maybe I should open my own Chinese restaurant in Whitby. This experience is totally bizarre.

  • Order: Kungpao Chicken and Tofu with mixed vegetables

  • Silver Star is always delicious! They have the best wonton soup, fantastic chicken balls and I have always been really happy with everything else we ordered.
    The price is reasonable and the food is always HOT and very fresh.
    This is our go to Chinese food restaurant.

  • Order: Wonton Soup, Chicken Balls, Chicken Fried Rice and Egg Rolls.

  • I've tried many different restaurants for chinese food and when we compare the value, taste, speed... other restaurants cannot even compare with these guys. The amount of meat and vegetables per dish is much more then other chinese food restaurants that I've been to.
    We ordered one of their Special dinner for 4's and there was enough food for me and my wife for 3 meals. The eggrolls were fresh and crispy and the chicken balls had large chunks of chicken in them! The cantonese noodles alone could feed my wife for the whole day. The whole meal was prepared in less then 10 minutes! I think I've found my new favourite chinese food restaurant... I'm so glad I listened to my friends when they suggested this place. Keep up the good work!

  • Order: Special Dinner for 4 C. Egg Rolls, Chicken Balls, Beef with Broccoli, Cantonese Chicken Noodles, Chicken Fried Rice.

  • I've been to my fair share of Chinese restaurants before and I don't know if it was just an off day for them, but the food was terrible! My family has quite the iron stomach but the food kept everyone up til the crack of dawn being sick. Needless to say we won't be back again.

  • Order: dinner for four

ckola, it sounds like they did have a bad day. You should've called or brought the food back explaining your problem to whoever's incharge... i'm sure they'd replace your order or prepare it the way you would like it.

  • I've tried chinese food at lots of restaurants before, and I mean LOTS but this is by far the best take out place ever! Their portions are very big and the food tastes great, very consistent. Pretty much everything on the menu is good. My personal favorite is the deep fried chicken wings! If you've never had it before, please go and order it now! You have to rip open the paper bag on the spot and try these fresh, they are AMAZING! same with the egg rolls. Haven't tried everything on the menu yet but I'm pretty sure that you won't be disappointed ordering there.

  • Order: fried rice, egg rolls, chicken balls, beef and broccoli, chicken wings

  • I've been eating here since I was a kid and still love it. Moved away for a while and was glad to see they are still there.

    Don't expect this hole in the wall to be the prettiest place on earth. But the food is very good and I have never been sick, so the kitchen must be clean. Delivery is always on time.

  • Order: All kinds of good stuff!

  • This is the best food value in Whitby. Everything seems to be made from scratch including the chicken balls (they actually have chicken in them). I can feed a family of 6 on a 'dinner for 4' menu. Service is fast.

  • Order: Dinner for 4, C
