Accross the street from Hong Kong Supermarket it appears that King Star Restaurant has closed it's doors. It appears that the building will undergo some major renovations according to the permits pasted on the wood boards. What made the place distinctive besides it's sea food and dim sung cuisine was the two Chinese style lions at the entrance. It has undergone a number of changes and ownership over the years. For quite some time it was called Jade Plaza and then eventually changed to the short lived Diamond on 8th and finally King Star Restaurant. In all of it's different resurrections it got fairly decent reviews. Time will tell if the restaurant name will remain the same or whether it has changed owners yet again. It's difficult in this economy for restaurants as people cut back and more frequently find eating at home a lot cheaper. Hopefully the economy will improve even if all signs seem to indicate otherwise.
