We always go to Red Star for a quick, well priced meal - particularly ramens, noodles, and wontons. As always the food was delicious, the wontons in chilli oil can't be beaten, but slightly on the expensive side for a cheap(er) restaurant. To be honest...More

Cheaper than chips and great mixture of asian foods, service was friendly and food was a higher standard than the low prices suggest - highly recommend, but am almost hesitant to do so in case they up their prices !!

I have been recommending this place to my friends ever since I went. Do not be fooled by the outside appearance! Admittedly the blue and red sign does not scream great establishment but I can assure you, it is! The layout inside is similar to...More

We finally got round to trying this out, wondering why we left it so long! Really good value, delicious authentic food with good service and a nice atmosphere. Much better value than Wagamama, would definitely recommend!
