When we asked for the special of the day we were directed to a chicken dish that was clearly bordering on being "off" - fatty and of no flavour - Needless to say we couldnt eat our meal and didnt bother with the second dish as the first was just so bad

From reading all the reviews on Trip Advisor, would say that they were written before this place changed ownership. The beautiful and delicious Malaysian-Singaporean food is now replaced by food from mainland China, which is not as tasty, jaded with oil, does not have the spice aroma from South-East Asia. When we went into the restaurant, the waiter didn't noticed... More

For those of you after a simple little restaurant, low key, BYO, friendly staff and the yummiest food here is the place to go. This is one of our regulars, particularly prior to a show if the Fringe Festival is on or if we are heading off to the Ellington. We have never been disappointed from the dumplings, salt and...

Remember this place from years ago when you had to book a table and were assured a meal that was not only delicious but one that was not your run of the mill Chinese fare. Change of ownership hasn't resulted in a sustained or improved operation. The food I had was OK, the winner of the night was the Ma... More

This place it way better than it seems at first sight. The staff is very, very friendly and the food was fantastic.

We ordered three dishes between three adults with rice. We managed to eat it all but then we regretted it, we were all so full. So portions were a good size. The szechuan green beans were fantastic, the mongolian lamb great and I suppose the chilli chicken was really good (but I'm not a fan of chicken... so I didn't... More

We used to love this place. We heard it had closed down and reopened. We were excited to go back to an old favorite. The new owners have kept the old name but that's where the similarity ends. The food and service were a far cry from the days of old. No soft chili crab and no amazing fried rice... More

Went back here a couple of times. Really interesting menu with some different dishes and interesting tastes. Not your average chinese restaurant. This one comes under the heading of "Special".

Yep the Red Teapot has changed owners and everything has suffered including my taste buds. Our recent visit was so so disappointing. The atmosphere is panic. No waiters understand English so I reverted to trying the numbers on the menu. And they still got it wrong even after checking twice with me. Then the main meals came at the same... More
