Description: Originally opened in 2008 as both a Peruvian and Cantonese restaurant...
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. Recently awarded the Bib Gourmand rating in the MICHELIN Guide New York City 2011. Don't forget to try the Peking Duck Sliders, Pan Fried Dumplings and Red Egg Filet Mignon to name a few.

wonderful chinese food, dim sum with reservations

One of the best dim sum selections in Chinatown, Even better, they seem to be the only dim sum restaurant that takes reservations. The service is excellent and they are very child friendly. The seelction is diverse and all are quite tasty

Loved the food. The dimsums are amazing. The menu is really good. Lot of options for vegetarians. The fried noodles were also great. The servers are very sweet and interactive.

We come here for dim sum once a month. Usually, dim sum is being served in the morning. However, Red Egg serves it any time of the day (as long as the restaurant is open). The reason their dim sum is so great is because their dim sums are being steamed after the waiter takes your order. ( It is... More

My little nephew and little cousin ages 12 and 13 respectively wanted good Chinese and so we came here for lunch during the week and ate for 2+ hours. It was all so tasty! Each dish -savory or sweet- was gobbled up. I have to say, I love this place and after seeing even the most trepidatious youngster staring curiously... More

Having been to Beijing and Hong Kong for dimsum, I find Red Egg at the same high level with excellent service and excellent food. Have been there numerous times and recommend the Peking Duck sliders and crunchy tuna roll.

Four of us got off the subway at the Canal stop and we didn't know where to eat. We found Red Egg on Centre Street. Our waitress was very helpful and suggested two dumpling dishes. We also ordered Pad Thai with chicken. Everything was delicious.

While I was at first disappointed that they don't have the carts, it was actually better that they didn't. The dishes were all very fresh and very tasty. The pork and chive dumplings were excellent and the chicken shumai was to die for. The best part is that it is still cheap! The only thing I had that i wasn't... More

This Chinatown restaurant is unique among Chinese for the variety of items they have on their menu (especially for lunchtime delivery). Even the more authentic ones don't come close to offering such dishes as scrambled eggs with anchovy, Hakka Stewed Pork Belly, steamed spare ribs with bitter melon and for under $10 each at lunchtime, it's a true bargain. Therefore... More

Not a big fan of Chinese food, but it was my partner's birthday and choice for lunch. Not a hectic experience as street dim sum vending can be. Waiters were in suit and ties, atmosphere was relaxing and nicely decorated. I had the Buddahs Delight since I'm a vegetarian. Lots of choices for me which I was happy about. My... More
