The title says it all really. I've eaten here many times, for lunches and dinners, as its a great meeting and eating place for those who don't want to spend a small fortune for some good oriental food. Known for their bento boxes and their large ramen soups, the decor is very tired however the atmothphie is very good with... More

Visited late on a Sunday night, lovely atmosphere quiet with dimmed lighting. The food was really yummy, good portion sizes and cheap for what it was worth. Helpful staff and quick service. Will certainly be visiting again!

We usually pop into the Ref Star before going to concerts. Tonight's service was quick but the good only average. We seriously dislike the ' sticky floors' warming in both the loos and the corridor. It will be a while before we come back.

Small and occasionally a little squashed, with long shared tables, the menu is dominated by noodle dishes but a range of soups and curry-rice type things also available - have tried a good range so far and enjoyed them all, best so far being the extra-spicy chicken noodle soup. Prices are very cheap indeed, with special combo deals bringing them... More

This place is filthy - serves tasty food that's cheap - but that comes at a price. Look it up on the foods standards agency website.

A few of us stopped by Red Star Noodle Bar lately. After eating, our collective impression translated roughly as 'meh'. Regarding waiting time after placing an order, it's always a fine line isn't it? Too long a wait and you start to get restless. Too quick though, and you wonder whether they bunged your dish in the microwave. This was... More

Popped in here on a Saturday evening, about 8pm. As expected, it was busy, but we were quickly offered a seat. The staff don't mind asking you to move to accommodate another group on the communal bench style seating, which is find by me! Plus it's nice to get chatting to your dining neighbours. Our order was quickly taken, drinks... More
