They need to say they do not have a liqour lisence when people are booking as it is assumed. We tried to go here for our anniversary after buying a groupon and waiting until 9.30 for the earliest booking space (even though there were only 4 others dinning.... weird). It was a shame as it was sooo late other places... More

I had a need for Lobster Cantonese which they provided. They went to the fish monger as we were sitting in the restaurant and picked up a live lobster. Couldn't get it any fresher. The meal was all I had hoped for. My companions enjoyed their food and we left satisfied and happy.

Discovered this place by a local friend's recommendation. My family wanted to try dim sum, and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is quiet, a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Chinatown. Staff helped walk us through the dim sum items, and all were delicious.

I had a dinner in Red Egg when holidaying in New York with a friend of mine. I was pleasantly surprised of the food we ate in this restaurant. It was extremely tasty and salad so fresh and crunchy. I had eaten before in Chinese restaurants were i had not enjoyed the greasy deep fried meals. This meal was totally... More

The food was alright. The entrance to the restaurant is a bit hidden and with all the windows covered we were afraid we might be entering a strip club. Anyway, inside it's perfectly fine, clean, good service... We ordered dim sum... Well, maybe we should've ordered something else.

We were welcomed in a nice way. But it was only what was positive. They forgot several appetizers, dinner did not come at once, so that more of a group of 10 had finished their food, before all the food came on the table. Some of the food was good, but something was also not edible. The dessert we got... More

The food quality here wasn't very good as the meat was fatty and contained small bones. The service was very quick though.

I must say it's as close to Hong Kong as you'll get. The dim sum is very good, and the other dishes are equally fab. Very authentic Cantonese cuisine. Good service. Would definitely come back.

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.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. 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.
