For the record, I will NEVER return to Bali Hai. EVER. Not only does the owner have a STANKY attitude but they now have VERY SHADY business practices. You know that whole one bowl, two bowls bit? Yea, well, they still do that. Sort of. You still can't got back for seconds if you eat in, you still can't take leftovers home. You can still order one or two bowls to go. BUT, what they DON'T tell you, is they now charge to go by the pound, and include your rice in that weight. They include the add one that you already paid extra for. So, I paid for my tofu and then she included that in the weight of the order. She charged me a dollar extra for the brown rice she weighed, too. And, everyone knows that veggies get heavier when cooked. So, we paid for cooked weighed of veg. Our meal would have cost us less than $20 if we had eaten in house. But, because I'm a gastric bypass patient who has to also eat vegan because my body rejects animal based proteins, we have to get ours to go and the meal was over $36!!!! NEVER AGAIN!!! Oh, and there is a sign. Where? Not at the door where they take your order. Not at the entry to the the food bar. Not hanging at the grill area where you drop your tray to be cooked. Not at the register. Where? After you leave the food bar, if you turn around and look behind you it is hanging behind you as you walk away. Did I say SHADY?

LOVE there shrimp egg rolls and there fried rice with veggies and yellow rice. Great deals for lunch and dinner also they deliver for minimum price and location.Dynamite food. Yum yum yummy.
They are slow BUT the food is HOT good and fresh and made to order SO I like that. If YOU want it fast go to a buffet where the food is already prepared. I enjoy the food when I don't want to cook. Fantastic food.
I love this place and eat here whenever I go back to Durham. I have lots of wonderful memories here including meeting and eating with Dom Deluise one night. My friend John and I had a wonderful experience here and I can't wait to go back. Friendly people, wonderful food and great atmosphere. I beg the people that have had an unpleasant experience to go back, tell the owner of the last time you were here about your experience and I guarantee you they will try and make it better.
Lady at counter was so rude! They don't even walk the food out to you when your food is ready! When I finally got my food it was soooo disgusting looking!!!! I didn't take 1 bite & left the plate on the table! Needless to say I wasted my $ cause of the no refund policy but,I WILL NEVER EVER BE BACK TO THIS DUMP, EVER!!!! THEY GOT ZERO STARS FROM ME but I had to rate this 1 star so this go thru but believe me:ZERO!!!
Horrible food. The fried rice was actually white rice with scrambled eggs. It was also used as a filler. I ordered curry chicken what I got was vegetables less and sauce over an extra helping of rice, no meat. I asked for a shrimp roll and got a meat roll. The egg roll was sour and I now have a stomach ache and the hot and sour soup had no meat in it just brought. The lack of meat would have been operable if the food tasted remotely human.
Good food. Good service. Fast! Cheap!
China star is one of the cheapest chinese restaurants! Has great food and great service!
This place is a deal you cant beat. Its a gymnasium sized buffet of high quality food, for 10 or 11 bucks. And you can pick out your own bowl of stuff to fry on the big flat wok/grill. Get out of town!
Ordered sesame chicken that I thought was fresh because it was piping hot, but boy was I wrong!! The chicken was old, tough, and had dark spots ( I guess from sitting all day and/or being cooked multiple times). I returned for a refund and all I got was a rude rant about me not knowing what sesame chicken looks like, that the dark spots were there because it was spicy, and that's how they cook the food. Oh and her saying no refunds, no exchanges. I saw the 94 sanitation grade on the way out. Needless to say I won't visit here ever again!!!
