Venue Review: Five Star Restaurant

Greg Cox reviews Five Star Restaurant
By "Greg Cox"
Triangle.com

All it takes is a quick peek into the dining room - an urban chic chiaroscuro of halogen track lights, faux leopard skin banquettes frosted Plexiglas panels suspended in front of scarlet walls - to get the hint that Five Star is decidedly not your father's Chinese restaurant. Explore the brief but varied menu, and your savory suspicions will be happily confirmed. Unlike the pagoda palace your father likely frequented, for instance, Five Star's scallion pancakes are made in-house, and chicken broth is poured tableside over plump ground pork-filled wontons for a dramatically delicious wonton soup. Other winners include duck rolls, Szechwan eggplant, hoisin barbecue pork rolls, and desserts imported from Francesca's in Durham.
