Five Star Restaurant
Five Star Restaurant was created in homage to their Chinese roots, the idea was to create fresh and modern Chinese cuisine that would cater to the diverse demographics of the Triangle area. Taking some of their favorite foods from growing up with a Chinese mother and visits to their grandparents in Taiwan, then adding extraordinary twists, they developed their first menu in October 2000. With the help of local artists, they were able to transform their warehouse space into a comfortable, uniquely urban environment in a sea of industrial buildings. As one of the first establishments to feature local DJs on a weekly basis, the Five Star bar has remained a favorite of locals over the years.

“My favorite Chinese restaurant reopened for dine-in service! It’s been 2 years of searching, unsuccessfully, for a suitable replacement. It’s a bit of a drive, so take-out really didn’t work. Not your average take-out joint with big pictures of the food on the wall served in Styrofoam containers. Great wait staff, great food, great restaurant! Throw ’em some support as they get their legs back under them!” – David B.
