service is still slow. not as attentive for a restaurant that looks and feels out of the norm for chinatown. if I'm paying more for dim sum, I expect better service. food has always been consistently great.

We have been going to Red
We have been going to Red Egg since it first opened. The food has been consistently good: authentic Chinese and freshest ingredients. The dim sum appetizers (served even at dinner) and Peking Duck sliders are must-haves. There is an excellent selection of wines with suggestions to pair with the dishes.

A Real Treat
I had dinner with a friend this week and was floored at how good the food was. We sampled the pork and shrimp shumai which was delicious, the beef skewers- a chef's favorite and at Alan the senior waiter's recommendation we had the garlic chicken which was out of this world. We'll be back!

Definitely a keeper
We started out in Chinatown @ Jing Fong, we explained a member of our party had a seafood allergy and they still served us shrimp! Then they got rude & plopped a plate of gelatinous plain rice noodle down telling us to eat that!! We left & went to the Red Egg
What a wonderful experience @ the Red Egg! The wait staff was so solicitous! Taking the time to review the dim sum menu to point out the items which included seafood,then separating the selections when they served.The Peking Duck sliders!! They prepared @ our table & explained how the combinations of ingredients enhanced the flavor of the duck.
The atmosphere was nice, not kitschy, black lacquer tables, white leather seating,subdued lighting. Absolutely going back to the Red Egg.

Even though Red Egg has a
Even though Red Egg has a regular menu, we partook from the Dim Sum menu. I fully appreciated the abilitity to ask questions as needed and check what I wanted from the listing. Our selections ranged from grilled meats to steamed buns and dumplings to fried rolls and dumplings. Everything we had was delicious and hot! The only downside was that there was only one cold choice from the Dim Sum menu we had and it was one in which we were not interested. We had red wine with the meal, which was satisfactory. But overall, it was an enjoyable and filling meal! It is not a big place so reservations are recommended.

Great Chinatown find
A friend recommended this spot on the fringe of Chinatown and it is a great spot. The regular menu is lengthy and there is a daytime and night time Dim Sum menu to choose from. The wait staff is pleasant and with capable English able to help you with unfamiliar selections or special requests--which they were happy to provide. Lots to choose from, and everything we selected was excellent. I am going to make this a regular stop when I am in NYC and looking for great Chinese food.

Great Dim Sum
This was my second time eating at Red Egg, and it's just great. The food comes so quickly and is always so delicious. Meanwhile, the prices are phenomenal!
