“A brilliant place for steak or lobster.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The 'RED' concept is simple - steak or lobster or a mix of both - and they deliver their concept beautifully; the restaurant has a very nice vibe, and whilst we were warned that some tables are rather too close to each other, our window table was great. It's very popular, so worth booking in advance to ensure you get in!

“No steak knives needed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I have been to RED several times and as good as the lobster is the steak is for me the star. Oh so tender and cooked to perfection. Service is great and polite. Only minus is the tables can be to close together.

“RED. The colour of their 2 menu items.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

They do both menu items extremely well. Lobster and steak. Great concept and very gluten free. Reservations always needed.

“good food and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Good value for the lobster. We couldn't decide between the lobster with mayonaise or the herb butter so the waitress suggested half-half which was great.

The service was friendly and not rushed which is a pleasant change from restaurants in Asia. Reservations required as the place is packed.
