Star Kitchen is located in a modest strip-mall and isn't much to look at, but this Chinese restaurant runs like a well-oiled machine -- one designed with the express purpose of filling everyone in the entire city with fantastic dumplings and other amazing creations that keep coming out of the kitchen. Service is fast and friendly, particularly during dim sum, which is the very best in the city. And unlike some of the town's other popular dim sum joints, this one has a liquor license. Star Kitchen shines very bright.
