“Great food, prices, music, and atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2009

I'm quite smitten with the Red Room. Not only is the food delicious, but the portions and pricing are generous, and great for those on a budget. The atmosphere is laid back, hip, charming, and a bit romantic. Generally there's a good CD on and it compliments the vibe. Patio seating available. Try the pad thai, my personal favourite. I will say the one thing that is lacking is perfect service. Particularly, after you get seated/order. One option if you're looking to leave and waiting to pay is to go up to the cash and pay there. Oh, that's another thing. If you have plastic there's an ATM inside, but it'd be nice if you could pay with credit cards. Though there's a wall mounted Royal Bank around the corner and a CIBC across College. However if you're willing to overlook those things (even if you're not) it's a stellar restaurant.

“Well Priced alcohol..cheap food and RUDE STAFF”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2008

Red Room was the little spot on spadina we used to love to go too have drinks with all our buddies. But of course one night of horror had to end that. The staff at red room was incredibly rude to me and my friends. The gentlemen in the muscle shirt threw the bill at me and my friends and spoke to us in a way that no employee should speak to customers ever. Overall the alcohol at red room is priced fairly well, the food is cheap. If the owner william wants red room to last i suggest hiring some new staff.
