Went on the Promotion day of the new Noodle Bar to try it out. I tried the Pho Ga which is a Vietnamese Broth noodles and wow was so authentic and yummy! Kids had Won Ton Noodles and loved it too all bowls were cleared! If you never tried Pho get in there and try it out!

I have ordered takeaway a few times from Ocean Star and have to say it is one of the nicest places in the area for Chinese cuisine.

Can't fault the place, very nice food and friendly staff, would recommend. Only had special fried rice, curry sauce and chips , my wife had prawns in black bean sauce . Think I'll have some chilly beef next time, the free prawn crackers were a good gesture .

Excellent food which is always consistent. Expedient delivery service they say 40 minutes but it is usually 15-20 minutes. Very friendly customer service. We usually get the special curry and we are a little picky which is never a problem. The meat is tender and the sauce flavoursome and moreish! All in all great chinese at a great price!

We frequent this restaurant a LOT. It's perfect. If you want tacky chinese decorations and waving golden cats, this is not the place for you. If you want a modern, friendly and taste-bud pleasing experience, then look no further. The survice is quick, friendly and polite. The food is cooked to order, and if necessary to your requirements. It's family... More

Ocean Star, in my experience, is indeed a gem of a takeaway/restaurant! Unlike many other Chinese takeaways that are also restaurants, the food quality is the same. There have been numerous occasions when having a Chinese takeaway, that I am disappointed in what arrives. Not to mention the MSG overload, which I have never experienced when having a meal from...

We were going to see a show on a Saturday night and was not even aware until recently this little gem even existed! It doesn't look much from outside and you would be excused for passing it by. However I had heard a positive review from a friend so booked a table for 6 of us at 6:15 pm with... More
