The portion is big and cheap. Definitely a good place to hang out with friends for students. The taste for the soup could be better but however it is better than many shops in Oxford.

I have been here on several occasions. The food is top notch and is a great value. It's worth a visit if you're in Crowley road, even with all the competition. Try the Kimchi Soup, YUM!

First visit to this restaurant would certainly return! Food selection was great, staff welcoming. We chose the menu that allowed a noodle and rice dish to be selected from a choice and served in two bowls. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals, served promptly, food delish and great value.

We were going to the O2 and looking for somewhere to have a quick bite to eat before hand, this place fitted the bill with a good selection of Japanese, Thai and Chinese food. We opted for a couple of the special meals, Chicken dishes with Rice and Noodles. The food was really tasty and the service was also very... More

The pork geishas were delicious! The spring rolls were basic, not amazing. The Singapore mee fun was normal, a little bit hot, the green and red pepper were raw for my taste. The egg fried rice was perfect !!!! Everything with Japanese sencha tea

A mix of Japanese, Chinese and Korean food. The MaPo Tofu is a family favourite and the best I've tried anywhere. The ramen and yasai curry are very good too.

Quick, clean, friendly, well prepared food. Not always easy to provide all these, but the Red Star chinese owners manage it well. This is a no nonsense, eatery, just right for a quick and tasty lunch.

Visited Red Star for dinner on a Sunday evening. I have had a takeaway from here before and the food was delicious so I would probably still order from here, however when dining in I ordered the vegetarian katsu curry, which I'd give a miss in future. It was really greasy and not very good quality compared to others I've... More

My non coeliac friends confirm that the "normal" food here is delicious, standard yummy Chinese at very affordable prices (£5-£7, huge portions). More excitingly for me, they have a separate gluten free menu which means I can eat Chinese here too! Yum. The definition of cheap and cheerful, ideal for a quick bite with friends. Light and fresh food, buzzing... More
