We went to the original location on Hudson St. Very cozy (aka small), but the creativity from the kitchen carries over into the use of space in the front of the house as well. The place was busy, but we still walked in and got a table on a Saturday night (they dont take reservations). We shared a number of small plates and Dim Sum, and everything tasted really good.

It is a very unique take on asian cuisine. I would almost describe it as Asian comfort food. All the dumplings we had were really creative and delicious. I reccomend sharring as there are so many unique items to try (Pasatrami Egg Rolls, and Duck and Shrimp Dumplings). The further away from normal the menu gets the better stuff tastes. So while the Pork Buns, and Crispy Beef were certainly tasty, I would reccomend going for the more uniqe menu items. They also had some really delicious drinks (alcaholic and especially non-alcaholic). Desert wasnt quite on par with the rest of the meal, so dont feel like you need to save room.

Also, despite the fact the restraunt was full, we had really great service. Everyone was friendly, attentive, and everything came out very quickly.

The only thing I didnt love was the communal seating. There are a few small booths, but go expecting to sit next to a stranger. The Hudson Street location is so small, I dont think they would be able to do it any other way, so I forgive them.

The food is inventive, delicious, and beautiful. The server knew the menu inside and out and was very helpful. The Katz's pastrami egg roll is a must. The pac man dim sum was great and the bacon and egg fried rice was delicious. I saw people eating the steak salad (awesome looking) as well as the hot and sour shrimp soup. This is a MUST go. Zagat got it right when they said "curiosity brought us there and the food made us come back." ***** Stars

Red Farm has opened a location on the Upper West Side (2170 Broadway at 76th Street) to compliment the original restaurant on Hudson Street. The menus are the same - Asian fusion fare that blends Chinese, Thai, Korean and Western ideas (Katzs' Deli Pastrami eggroll anyone?). Expect a lively crowd of diners and a setting that borders on "family style". Quiet and romantic it is not, but the food is interesting and well prepared. Prices mirror the location. Choosing a variety of dishes will ratchet up your bill quickly. No reservations accepted, but if you call the restaurant just prior to your visit they will place your name on the waiting list prior to your arrival.

Went for an early dinner. I have never had worse food, Chinese or otherwise. Unfortunately we tried a number of dishes. In order, each was worse. Basically the food was inedible. Don't get sucked in by the hype; if you want Chinese food, find a good Chinese restaurant. If you want good fusion food, find a good fusion restaurant. Just don't go to Red Farm.

Good food and atmosphere, able to call ahead to put our name on the list even though they don't take reservations.
