If you like dim sum but would like it made to order quickly, rather than order off a car, in an environment where your server takes care of you instead of madly wheeling dim sum around on carts - and not have to raise your...More

The dim sum is excellent. Overall the food is good. We went around 4 pm and it was still fairly busy. Very nice helpful staff.

Spent all day in NYC without real food. Placed a delivery order at 10 pm on a Friday night. They delivered in about 40 min. I have definitely had better dim sum. Our order was not very flavorful and the buns and dumplings were not...More

Went there with a large group and I have to say that I've never been treated so poorly in any restaurant. The wait staff just didn't care if we got any service or not. And the food portions were small and had little or no...More

Most restaurants in Chinatown are packed to the gills at lunchtime with crowds waiting for tables in cramped spaces. Red Egg, thankfully, is not such a place. The interior is rather spacious and well laid out so that you can have a quiet conversation if...More

I read about Red Egg recently in the New York Post, following rave reviews by author Kevin Kwan--He was right! Among the menu highlights: the Red Egg puff (pork & red bean paste--the perfect blend of sweet & savory), classic pork buns & young coconut...More

Really good dim sum, inexpensive, quiet at lunch time, food didn't take long to come out, clean bathrooms, staff were efficient.

Food was mediocre and tasteless and they have no license so you can only drink water/tea with your meal. Decor is very dark and mirrors very streaky, tables get sticky giving the overall impression of not being very clean.

Picked this one from the street in a rush between bridge walk and boat ride. They promised us we'd have our food in 10 mins and it might have taken a fraction longer but the food was delicious. Fresh pork buns, fried rice and two...More

Strolled over from my nearby hotel and was pleasantly surprised. The dim sum was tasty and VERY well priced. Turnip Cake and Shrimp/Scallop dumplings were a highlight. Also enjoyed the chicken Shaomai. If you find yourself in the neighborhood, worth a stop.

Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping
destinations in the world. Housing everything from the
most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated
shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
big-name stores and people during the day, while
Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to

Unfortunately, I saw no gluten free options on the menu. Possibly there's a special menu if you ask.

Originally opened in 2008 as both a Peruvian and Cantonese restaurant, owner and culinary director Darren Wan decided to reconceptualize the already successful restaurant in 2010 into the chic, upscale and exclusively Cantonese format that it is today.

Melding traditional Chinese cuisine with a hip and contemporary venue, RED EGG caters to those looking for excellence in their cuisine as well as in the ambiance they want to enjoy it in. In addition to the Cantonese and Szechuan specialties menu, RED EGG features classic Cantonese dim sum throughout the day.

Recently awarded the Bib Gourmand rating in the MICHELIN Guide New York City 2011. Don't forget to try the Peking Duck Sliders, Pan Fried Dumplings and Red Egg Filet Mignon to name a few.
