Originally opened in 2008 as both a Peruvian and Cantonese restaurant, owner and culinary director Darren Wan decided to reconceptualize the already successful restaurant in 2010 into the chic, upscale and exclusively Cantonese format that it is today. Melding traditional Chinese cuisine with a hip and contemporary venue, RED EGG caters to those looking for excellence in their cuisine as well as in the ambiance they want to enjoy it in. In addition to the Cantonese and Szechuan specialties menu, RED EGG features classic Cantonese dim sum throughout the day.

We came upon Red Egg by accident, the first time, while we were in ChinaTown, but now we go out of our way to eat there on almost each of our 2 trips a year to NYC. The dumplings are outstanding.

This place was an absolute surprise! A great friend organized a birthday dinner here. Most reviews on red egg are about their dim sum but their dinner is not to be missed. The peking duck, sea bass and pastrami dishes were first rate! Yes!!! I said pastrami. Just trust me and order it. The decor is a total throw back,... More

We felt like dim sum but didn't want to stand in line for ages so we were pleased to find this place that took reservations for Sunday lunch. Good dim sum in a restaurant clearly popular with local Chinese residents. Nice service too, and not too expensive

The dim sum ranged from good to very good (nothing terrible, nothing outstanding). But, the seating is nice, dim sum can be ordered from the menu, and it's possible to reserve, even on a weekend. We saw lines out the door (in the rain) at many places-- including some that have no better food.

We went for a late very lunch / Dim Sum, as Red Egg advertised. We loved the touch v modern ambiance. Service was efficient although very formal and the waitstaff did not offer any advice / suggestions - even when asked The portions were small, three pieces on each plate. The quality was above average. Flavor was good too. The... More

went for Dim Sum with a friend.Biz associate. Though considerably more expensive than the Chinatown Standby on Chatham Sq, the food was very good, nice ambience and great service.

MUST COME! Classy chinese cuisine. Dishes are very tasty here and authentic. They serve dim sum, entrees, appetizers and a full bar. I really enjoy their noodle soup a lot. From wonton, sliced fish with squash to sliced pork with veggies. You will definitely leave here with a happy full stomach!

What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
