Whenever I'm after quick-fix Asian food I head to red star. Food is cheap, big portions, tasty and arrives quickly. Seating is at long shared tables and it's usually busy but you never have to wait that long for a seat. Making me hungry just thinking about it!

Res Star is a no-frills noodle bar serving tasty, hearty Asian noodle and rice dishes. Mainly Japanese, Chinese and Thai as far as I could tell. My Yaki Soba (fried Japanese noodles) arrived very quickly and was a very generous portion of flavoursome noodles with chicken. Price was reasonable, as befitting the casual dining environment. Somewhere I'd definitely go back... More

Great place! Always busy but people are in and out all the time so it doesn't take long to get a table. Very informal, benches so you are close to your neighbours but excellent choice and very good prices - £7.50-£9, service great can't fault the food. Food arrives very quickly but is fresh and tasty. Been twice now and... More

This is a great place to eat an informal meal. Some of the dishes are lacking in flavour, but most are truly excellent. It's great value for money and very quick service. The options for vegans, fishatarians and those on a low calorie diet make it a great place to eat for those with special requirements.

I work at a Language School and i always come here with everyone; it is fast, cheap and delicious!! Just what you need before a night on the tiles. Also, the communal tables are lovely and informal so it's good for groups, and the Asian students are generally pretty happy with the food so i take that as the highest... More

I live for this food as I have said before, I can not stress how much i love this. They have a big choice, all extremely tasty and you feel healthier just smelling it, for some reason. The place is small and you share a table with people, but believe me you do not go there for the service or... More

Red Star is a Chinese/Japanese/Thai restaurant on the Cowley Road. They offer an excellent choice for vegetarian and vegan diners. Fairly decent food at average prices, the portions are a good size and the lunchtime offer with a soft drink is excellent value. Like so many restaurant/take-a-ways of its kind though, the venue is cramped and very much a place... More

Quite inexpensive noodle bar with a large variety of stuff. Not really great in any way but it's a very fair deal. I'd go back anytime.
