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.

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!

Red egg has very fresh food and the setting is clean and modern. They have a bar up front so a variety of alcoholic beverages is available. Another thing is this dim sum restaurant doesn't have the usual carts floating around with a nice lady to mark your card. Everything is made to order. The menu is pretty standard for... More

Tried this place after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and really enjoyed it. It's not much to look at as a venue but the staff are friendly and there is a good atmosphere. We ordered some appetizers and mains, which all came out quickly. Portions were really big and everything was delicious. I could have handled a little more spice... More

Decent selection of beer and great food. Planning on going back to try other things on the menu. It is also close to the hotel I am staying in so I can walk instead of having to take a taxi. Staff are very attentive.
