Very good authentic cuisine, you get a chart with all the dishes and check the ones you want, we ate here twice because the food was just good, anything we tried was just so tasty and fresh

Dinner here was very disappointing since two of our trusted foodie friends recommended it, and we had avoided it as a tourist trap (many non-native patrons) We should’ve stuck with our instincts, but it was across the street from our ultimate destination. Our impression had been that it was a trendy Asian fusion hot spot. No fusing and mainly Chinese... More

Food was completely mediocre. If not a bit worse but it was slow. Service is not attentive and the dim sum comes out ridiculously slow. No liquor license does not help the situation. Only good thing was a good Groupon.

The food was really good. The most exciting thing was the preparation of the food at the table....the deboning of the flounder and cutting of the duck was very cool. The duck and crab (pictured) were awesome. The waite staff was very helpful in selecting what to eat

Great place for noodles. It gets crowded and there are not too many tables so if you can book in advance or get early it's better. Food and service are excellent.

For me Chinese restaurants have always been a synonym of tasty food and bad service. The truth is I like the food so much that I kind of swallow the rest (bad joke...). Well, Red Egg just raised the bar! No so much for the food, which was good, but the service is one of the worse ever! Every time... More

This place has changed. No more wine and liquor, at all. The decor has become shabby, and worse for wear as you will see because now they leave the lights on bright. The pork buns are delicious, and so were the other Dim Sum we ordered. We had been here a few years back, in the dark cocktail bar ambience,... More

We wanted a place close to museum of Chinese in America and this is right across the street. Delicious dim sum. Attractive setting.

Everything was great from the second I entered the door. The food is exquisite and exceptional. Staff very friendly and helpful and I love the decor. Perfect dinning experience and I can't wait to eat here again.

In and around Chinatown there are obviously an abundance of Chinese restaurants. One of these is Red Egg on Centre Street - and it is well worth a visit. A nice, simplistic decor, attentive service and very well cooked foods. Had wonton soup, fried scallops and an assortment of dumplings - with water and tea on the side (Red Egg... More

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.

Staying in SoHo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 explore by foot. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district –majestic cast-iron architecture everywhere you look. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city. The pretty streets of Nolita (North of Little Italy) offer a more sedate vibe, with plenty of tiny boutiques and hip restaurants to seek out.
