Special events & promotions
The venue molds itself into everything from seated dinner parties and cocktail events to live performances and late-night celebrations with an expanded full-service bar and a late night menu. Modeled as a modern version of the traditional Chinese teahouse, shades of fuchsia, crimson and copper replace the customary red and gold for a more 21st century twist on traditional culture. Accented by Tom Dixon light fixtures and a slanted ceiling, exposed light bulbs are hung throughout the main room to mimic koi fish in a pond. The space is both highly creative and interpretive with enough space for DJs and/or live entertainment to appease a multitude of different types of events and other group gatherings.

Very pleasant casual lunch from dim sum menu with polite and responsive service. Food was excellent. We will return.

Too bad they lost their liquor license- food is pretty good. Get the duck sliders. Casual, a bit too quiet, feels like it needs some of the atmosphere that comes with drinking!

Food was great, but restaurant does not currently have a liquor license, because of the normal process following a change of ownership. We would like to have known that when we booked on Open Table.

This is a very pretty restaurant. During the day, one can walk right by it as it looks closed. Inside, there are pretty red and yellow large balloon-like lamps. Food was good and well-prepared. Service was very good. It was $1-2. more than other Chinese restaurants in the area, but had a more calming and selective feel to it.

This place had NO record of my reservation.
It was no problem because the place had 2 tables with customers. Not a good sign.
The food on the plates I saw did not appear to be very fresh and neither did our food when it came to the table
Poor service with no customers too!
You gotta be kidding me.
I give them 6 more months tops

It was the busiest I have ever seen Red Egg so the service was totally lacking, but the dim sum was still superb! :)

The waitstaff are rude, pushy, and generally detract from an otherwise wonderful restaurant.

This is my regular dim sum spot. The food is fantastic, it's quick, there's table service and you can book.

Food was good although only found out they were awaiting their liquor license once we got there so no wine/cocktails etc. disappointing as we were hoping for a cocktail or two to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Wanted to love this place but it was just okay. The Dim Sum starters were the best part of the meal. Would probably go back for Dim Sum.
We were there for Chinese New Year so not sure if the quality of the food is reflective of a normal business day as they were very busy.

Our review may not be valid, since we attended on Lunar New Year and the staff and kitchen was clearly unable to handle the volume. However, I think that we can speak to the quality of the kitchen, if they can not prepare the dim sum in a correct manner. The soup dumplings were quite frankly the worst we have ever had. All the food was underseasoned. The management was aware of our displeasure and did try to accomodate us by taking the cost of the soup dumplings and the "duck wonton soup" (which came with shrimp wontons and no duck) off the menu. Go to Jing Fong for dim sum.

Decent dim sum selection with more westernised ambience. Service was great, staff was attentive. Liked the ability to have dim sum wo the madness of more traditional Chinatown dim sum restaurants. Great for bring friends and large groups, with the ability to make a reservation on open table. Bar is a big plus. A bit high prices, but paying for overall ambience as well - worth it I think depending on what you are in the mood for. Friend and I had a good time and while satisfying our dim sum craving. Interested in coming back for perhaps dinner with larger group of friends for sure.

Place has been around for a while but always seems to reinvent itself. Amazing food and service make the ultimate experience one that takes us back time after time.

If you want authentic Chinese food this is the place to go. Great value for the price and if you like chicken feet this is the place to go

Overall it was a good restaurant. We were in the mood for Dim Sum at night and they delivered. I was pretty disappointed that there was no bar. When you are searching and you see images as a result of searching many have a lovely bar. Those pictures are not from this place. The service was okay but not so great. They don't check in enough and there was a little bit of an language problem. So ordering was a little harder than it should have been. Overall the food was good and the selection was good so we were happy. If they had an awesome bar I would give it at least 4 stars overall.

NO ALCHALOL! Food was pretty good. Dim Sum was excellent but the place was shabby and tired and very cold. We went there cos the description was good ambience, smart but casual. We left as quickly as we could
