Chinese Restaurants: Five Star
Monday, 2003 November 3 - 12:36 am
Raleigh's Five Star restaurant is a welcome change from the ubiquitous mass-produced Chinese buffets and take-out joints.

If you're tired of the Americanized Chinese food that you get at most Chinese restaurants in the U.S., you might enjoy Five Star, on West Hargett Street in Raleigh. There, you get simple but incredibly flavorful dishes, made crisp and spicy as Chinese food is meant to be.

The appetizers are not to be missed, and some are a meal unto themselves. The crispy green beans are an absolute delight. Of the entrŽes, my favorites include the Spicy Beef and the Moo Shu Tempeh, though I have yet to taste a dish I did not like.

Five Star turns into a great club on weekend nights as well. Combined with the fact that dinner is served until 11:00, and that the restaurant is open on Sundays (both oddities in Raleigh), this makes Five Star into an indispensable part of the downtown Raleigh scene.
