This is a great place to have a fast and filling meal on the go. While walking around town, passing through Cowley Road, we happened to get lunch here. They have a big menu with loads of choice. Our lunch order comprised of Chicken Katsu Curry with rice and Chicken in Black bean sauce with a couple of bottles of... More

Popped in there for lunch before to head into the ice cream place next door. Ordered a vegetarian ramen. Prices are very affordable and portion size very good. Service was quick. Be aware, they so not accept cards. Having said that there is a cash point just next to it.

If you want a hearty Chinese meal n want it double fast and at a reasonable price.... go to the red star on Cowley rd. The honey black pepper chicken is my fav. And the combo dishes are great if you're super hungry. You basically get 2 meals for a tenner if you buy the combo. Enjoy

Good location for lunch or casual dinner with friends or family. I had an amazing noodle soup and jasmine tea for less than £7. My friend had some sort of beef dish with rice that was OK.

Seemingly frequented by those in the know, this is a great place to enjoy a wide selection of noodles and bento boxes. Reasonable prices, even serve beer! Can get busy but worth it.

This is a cheaper version of Wagamamas! The food is gorgeous and is quick to arrive at the table, and the staff friendly. Take always are ready quickly to pick up and the restaurant is perfect for a quick meal or even on your own. I am a regular here as I live up the road, I keep going back!

We have gone as family to Red Star for many years, has long been our favourite asian restaurant at this price point. Went there 2 days ago as a family group of 10, we had a very poor meal. The chicken satay starter was inedible and so hard / crispy that the only logical assumption is it had been prepared... More

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!
