    The service from the staff here was perfect, very chilled, friendly and smooth. The food was equally as fabulous with generous sized portions and great quality meat and food.

    Every time my boyfriend and I come here we love it. The food is excellently prepared and tasty. The homemade pizzas are of excellent quality. I had the chicken Caesar salad this evening and it was one of the best I've ever had.

    It's a shame more people don't know about this place, because both the food and service never fail. Perhaps some candles on the table would bring some more ambience?

    I always enjoy going to the Royal Star and have never been disappointed with the quality of their food. Long may it continue! "

    Well what a Thursday night that was. After having a meeting in the Old St area - you're a little spolit for choice for dinner. Found the Royal Star on City Road and what a pleasent surprise it was!

    From the moment we walked in, not just one, but every member of staff acknowledged us. We we're seated just as I'd requested by the window. The service was excellent. The menu had a wide variety of choices and food was perfect. You can always tell the sign of a good restaurant/bar if the staff come over and actually ask you if you are enjoying your meal and can they get you anything else.

    I would highly recommend this venue for all the reasons:
    -The venue itself - a bar/restaurant excellent interior and decor
    -The staff - friendly, polite and genuinally cared
    -The food - very nice and for its location to Old St - very reasonable

    I shall be paying a visit again in the near future. "

    Had a great meal here. The quality of the food is excellent. Portion sizes seem to vary considerably however, the octopus dish was quite small and the roast aubergine dish was very large, but all in all the food was all excellent. "
