    This was a disappointing experience with uninspiring Chinese dishes and lacklustre service at a premium price. The food really lacked quality and from a taste perspective was bland. The sweet and sour sauce was just sweet and the chicken low quality. Wine was very expensive.

    Good over all, felt a bit quiet for lunch time, could have done with some music. Service was fine but when asked questions the servicer misunderstood the order so we didn’t get what we wanted. Food was nice. The soft and crunchy rice could have done with some seasoning

    Lunch express menu is overpriced for what it is really. A lot of rice and not much to go with it. Although the food tasted nice the value for what you pay is poor. The Pac-Man fish is fun for children. But the adult options are not exactly groundbreaking flavour wise or presentation raise for the money.

    Read the reviews before I went and although mixed, I thought it sounded fun to go with my young daughter. Arrived on time but had to wait 30 minutes for a table. The waitress was very hassled and not at all friendly. Place was heaving (pre theatre crowd). The pork / crab soup bao had a funny taste (I am a cook and it is the kind of taste you taste and you just know something is off). I mentioned it to the waitress who just said ‘oh’. The pac man bao were tasty and novel but too cold. The chicken and prawn lollipops were greasy and heavily battered. It felt like the dish could be good if done well but this was rushed. The spring rolls were delicious. The duck main was ok but not exciting. Our drinks arrived with the main course. The moustache emoji mocktail was novel and tasty. The food was generally mediocre which is a shame as the ideas are interesting. And the price was inflated. The more negative reviews are right I am sad to say and I recommend not bothering. I think if the owners / head chef tasted and experienced what we did, they would make some changes. There is no way they would think the food was executed like they would want. I think standards have obviously slipped from the original concept as they try to pack in as many people as possible prior to theatre performances starting. Our theatre performance didn’t start until 8 and the restaurant was empty by 7.15pm. Also another booking site offers 50% off I later discovered so maybe that was why I) it was so full II) so badly executed.

    Never been before but most certainly will return. A refreshing new take on Chinese. Delicious food and lovely friendly staff. A really varied menu. Cheese burger spring rolls! The katsu chicken noodles. All really tasty and I’m sure this will become a family favourite

    First time there. Overly surprised by the rich and incredibly unique dishes. I haven’t had chinese food that was this original, from the cheeseburger spring rolls to the various dumplings, to the tasty custard lava bao. Very happy to have come here. There was a significant amount of plant flies flying around which was strange and annoying but not enough to disrupt the overall great experience. Will be coming again for more, on a regular basis I believe!

    Wasn't expecting much from a last minute booking. How wrong were we!? Quick service and attentive staff. The food was incredible, full of flavour and great portion sizes (we got 5 small plates between 2 and were full). The pacman dumplings are a sweet novelty and pork belly was the highlight!

    We went for a birthday over Saturday lunch time and it wasn’t overly busy, just a nice level of buzz and no feeling of being rushed despite Covent Garden being incredibly busy - it felt like they would have been happy for us to hang out and enjoy cocktails all afternoon! Service was overall very friendly and pleasant, helping to explain the best way to eat the soup dumplings to get the best (and least messy!) experience. Food overall was excellent, we had 6 dimsum items + 2 noodle/rice dishes to share between 4 adults and it was just right. Don’t be put off by the casual decor and seating, the pricing reflects great food and nice presentation. Cocktails also excellent although they do take a few minutes to make so be patient! Food was speedy.

    The restaurant was quite busy and noisy. We had a nice small booth table upstairs. The menu has a limited choice of Dim Sum and main courses. The cocktail and wine lists are very good actually. However, it took quite a while to order our food and drinks. The food was brought to our table first and eventually we received our drinks. Our food was okay, although quite spicy. Overall, our experience of Red Farm was average mainly because of the limited menu choices and relatively slow service. There are so many really good Chinese restaurants in Soho, so we probably won't be coming back to this one.

    My friend got some container with plastic forks thrown over him. Service team took their time to bring our drinks. Service team took a long time to actually get our order in - as we were ordering (and even after) the menu got updated several times to reflect what is not longer available. Overall, quite a bit of chaos on the customer service side.
