For those of you after a simple little restaurant, low key, BYO, friendly staff and the yummiest food here is the place to go. This is one of our regulars, particularly prior to a show if the Fringe Festival is on or if we are heading off to the Ellington. We have never been disappointed from the dumplings, salt and...

Remember this place from years ago when you had to book a table and were assured a meal that was not only delicious but one that was not your run of the mill Chinese fare. Change of ownership hasn't resulted in a sustained or improved operation. The food I had was OK, the winner of the night was the Ma... More

We ordered three dishes between three adults with rice. We managed to eat it all but then we regretted it, we were all so full. So portions were a good size. The szechuan green beans were fantastic, the mongolian lamb great and I suppose the chilli chicken was really good (but I'm not a fan of chicken... so I didn't... More

We used to love this place. We heard it had closed down and reopened. We were excited to go back to an old favorite. The new owners have kept the old name but that's where the similarity ends. The food and service were a far cry from the days of old. No soft chili crab and no amazing fried rice... More

Went back here a couple of times. Really interesting menu with some different dishes and interesting tastes. Not your average chinese restaurant. This one comes under the heading of "Special".

Yep the Red Teapot has changed owners and everything has suffered including my taste buds. Our recent visit was so so disappointing. The atmosphere is panic. No waiters understand English so I reverted to trying the numbers on the menu. And they still got it wrong even after checking twice with me. Then the main meals came at the same... More

I wanted this to be the go to place for great Chinese but it wasn't very tasty which was a shame. It seems to be more popular with westerners than Asians which is a review all of its own.

Had a fantastic meal here , all courses were excellent, no need to book just roll up. Not exactly fine dining but quality of food was excellent, and price was very reasonable. 6 dishes for under $25 .
