In the heart of student territory, Red Box Noodle Bar is busy and bustling: half takeaway, half restaurant, it serves up noodles in various forms. Order at the counter and choose your noodle, meat, sauce and vegetables. There is a host of options for your red box, like ramen or ho fun, duck, chicken or prawns, as well as a wide selection of veg. The sauces range from the tasty black bean to the spicy Thai red curry. There are weekly specials like Chinese leaves or char siu pork for something new. Once ordered you can add starters of wings, ribs or squid rings before finding a seat with a soft drink or beer. The service is swift and the generous portions are enough for a substantial appetite. While the range on offer will not wow, the convenience and consistency makes it a popular spot before a night out or in between festival shows. [Not recently visited.]
