GOLDEN STAR CHINESE-AMERICAN RESTAURANT 3326-30 Greenmount Ave. Open 11 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. daily, noon to 2:30 a.m. Sunday. Phone: 366-7932.

This friendly neighborhood favorite is one of the relatively few places in Baltimore where patrons can go for late-night feasting. And everything on the extensive menu is available for carryout. The restaurant -- with soothing aquarium insets -- has been operated for 21 years by the Lin family and their relatives. All foods except the breads are homemade, and the food is good and the prices moderate.

The menu covers a broad spectrum of Chinese dishes including special combination dinners for two ranging in price from $14.80 to $19.75. These dinners offer a quart of Wonton or Egg Drop Soup, two egg rolls, spare ribs, roast pork fried rice and a main entree, which can be Moo Goo Gai Pan or Lobster Cantonese.

Special Chinese foods include Jumbo Shrimp with Lobster Sauce ($9.35), Sweet and Pungent Chicken ($7.95), Wa Shue Opp -- braised duckling -- ($7.85) and Chow Har Kew -- deep fried jumbo shrimp with Chinese vegetables ($9.75). Special Szechuan dishes include Kung Pao Chicken ($8), Chow Gan Pui -- scallops with Chinese vegetables -- ($9.15), Szechuan Beef ($9.30) and Hot and Sour Soup for two ($3.60).

Golden Star also features a large selection of Chinese soups, appetizers, Egg Foo Young, lo mein, chow mein and chop suey dishes. There are also a host of Chinese vegetarian dishes, as well as American entrees from seafood to sandwiches.
