This is one of my go to restaurants for special occasions. The food quality is amazing, the dishes very tasty and the service is good. Their new location in Southgate has completely updated their decor which had been looking a bit old, and they've taken this opportunity to update their banquets - which are amazing value and just the perfect amount of food.

This is the place to go for that special event. Classy, upmarket Chinese restaurant. Their yum cha is well worth the money and trouble to get into the city. Everything is exquisitely presented and taste is impeccable. Highly recommended!

After a wonderful 3 nights in Melbourne for my birthday my daughter and I were looking for somewhere close to our hotel for dinner.
Melbourne was in the middle of a heatwave so we didn't want to venture too far. Staying at Southbank you have lots of choices anyway.
We opted for The Red Emperor Chinese Restaurant located on the top floor of Southgate shopping complex. What a great decision.
We chose the special banquet for two. It was superb. All of the courses were delicious. My favourite was the Mandarin Prawns. If you are looking for a budget Chinese Restaurant this is not for you.
Sumptuous surroundings and excellent service. Could not fault this place and we eat out a lot.

My husband and I ate there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As soon as we entered, the service was remarkable. Ive eaten at plenty of chinese restaurants and this one is up there in the top 5! We sat outside on the balcony and had a busker playing down southbank which was great. Food was delicious but just a little pricey for the amount that you get but you do expect that being on southbank. The manager made the effort a couple of time to come over to ensure everything was going great and recommended a main dish for us to have which we did and it was really nice. Overall experience - very satisfying and will go again.
