This was the second time I visited Red Star Noodle Bar. The first left me without any feelings of awe or inspiration. I most usually review places that I rate very highly, but after my second trip here, feel it is appropriate to say this place is very average. I had a chef combo dish, which is a little more...

We used to eat here frequently when I lived in Oxford and always go there whenever we visit. The garlic chips are a particular favourite, and Katsu curry is delicious.

I often come to the Red Star for lunch with colleagues, the service is quick and friendly and the food has never let me down! The soups are great and the garlic squid rather moorish. You share big communal tables with whoever happens to be there at the time, which works really well is this rather small space.

This is a regular lunch venue for those of us who are lucky enough to work on Cowley Road! Mains are served in generous portions and the chilli garlic tofu is great!

Our first visit to this restaurant as we found ourselves looking for a late night meal on Cowley Road. I opted for roast duck with pineapple rice which was delicious and tasty, The cost was around £8. The service was very efficient, I think we were in and out well within 30 minutes, It is not the sort of place... More

The food at Red Star is always spot on. We visit about once a month and find the portions to be generous and the flavours are memorable. The atmosphere is friendly. Although at first the shared tables and benches is unusual (and uncomfortable) for British levels of 'intimacy', you soon get over it and focus on having a good meal.... More

Have been going here for years, never had a bad meal and love the food. Simple, tasty and great value. No other noodle bar touches it for flavour and value in Oxford.

Visited Red Star loads of times now. Food is always very nice, quick service and cheap prices! Personally find it (Especially the Ramen) much nicer than Wagamamas and it's half the price! A must try; great for students.
