The Red Star serves very fresh, delicious food. The cuisine is a sort of pan-East Asian style: lots of rice and noodle dishes, noodle soups, very crispy deep-fried tempura, all very tasty. The service is very quick - it goes straight from the kitchen to your table. There is snack food or you can really fill up on one of their combo meals or a bento box. The food is very good value and it tends to get full quite quickly at busy times. This means that you often sit very snuggly close to the person next to you- all part of the Red Star experience. I keep going back. It's very much part of the Cowley Road experience.

The staff is very rude and the food in terms of quality is similar to the meals that they sell at tescos for 3 pounds.Every effort that I did so as to avoid a review like this was wasteed by the very very rude staff.They charged me twice for something that they brought by mistake two times and when i complained I received a very customer service orientated answer..."nest time u ll know"
No matter what I am saying the reality cannot be described....

Went yesterday for something quick and cheap to eat and we thought the mixed 1 noodle 1 rice dish would be perfect to share since we didn`t need much food. After clearly ordering 1 chicken curry and 1 veg noodles we were served and charged for two and despite of the complaint we were told it went through the system and nothing can be done. Stubborn attitude which does not pay off since we will NOT be coming back. In terms of the food - overcooked rice and plasticky taste which we could not get rid of for hours. Do not recommend - what a shame.

I have been visiting this restaurant for 3 years now. It never disappoints. In terms of value for money, taste, atmosphere it really is second to none. Good variety of specials and drinks. Also does take-away. Very efficient staff. Great food, especially recommend the seaweed duck rolls, chilli beef ramen, any bento box and pad thai. Well worth a visit!
