The service was friendly, it's laid back and good for enjoyable twist on Asian cuisine. It's playful and the flavours different to the norm in a really lovely way.

The food was ok-ish , but very expensive for what it was. Dumpling starters were a bit gooey . Crispy chilli beef a winner. Main course of prawn and steak rice , were very light on meat . I have arguably heated up better rice dishes from the supermarket. Shrimp
stuffed chicken was nice I have to say
. All in all though £180 for a family of 4 , including 2 beers and a glass of wine was far too expensive .
We didn’t eat too badly, didn’t get served too poorly (apart from
the constant sniffing and one dish missing) and we didn’t have a terrible time. It was all a bit forgettable, apart from the price

Food was good but service was poor. Staff was not friendly or inviting. Not helpful explaining menu. I had read reviews that they had a great brunch but it was nothing special. Will not be back.

Was out on a girlie shopping trip with my dd. Found this on OpenTable and was not disappointed. All the dishes were great. Loved the soup dumplings and crispy beef and the custard Bao were delish. Also loved that no pressure to over-order. We had 2 starters, a main and the pud. I know why some have complained about the duck noodles, as skin is not crispy and noodles a bit oily, but we ate every morsel and found it very flavourful. Maybe not the cheapest (£70 for 2 including 2 soft drinks), but taking into account the taste, totally worth it. Will be back to try the Pac-Man dumplings, they look so fun.

Birthday meal out. Loved that they reserved a booth for the two of us. Service was overall good but there was one rather serious waitress - nothing wrong with her service but was a bit jarring compared to the other servers! Cocktail list was a little limited but food was unbelievable - we stuck to the starters and found 4 plates plus desert to be enough food for us. Crispy chilli beef and the custard bao were particular highlights!

Interesting ideas and friendly service but the execution of the cooking was very disappointing for the price. Maybe Covid staffing issues...

The food was exceptional - even the gimmicky looking Pac-Man dumplings tasted amazing. The service was also fantastic - there was a small confusion with our order and the servers were quickly able to sort it out. The soup dumplings are a must eat!

This was the second time I have been to Redfarm and on the whole it was a lovely experience, as the staff are very friendly and love the ambiance. However, this time there were a couple of dishes that were disappointing.
The roast duck noodles was a bit too oily and there was barely any meat on the duck. The skin on the roast duck was not crispy but chewy and had a lot of fat under the skin. The BBQ spare ribs was very disappointing and I definitely will not be ordering them again, as they were not flavoursome and came out cold.

Lovely food, great vibe, my daughter and I loved it.
Portions are large, so I would order starters before mains - we ended up taking a lot of ours home. But my partner enjoyed the leftover too.

So this was a spontaneous booking for me & my partner. The food quality is outstanding! We both highly recommend this restaurant, to start crispy beef & pac man shrimp. Both the food quality & portions were outstanding! The pac man shrimp is a must!

Mains - the 3 chillis dish, full of flavour & yet again a fantastic portion size, added side of rice which was very generous but also 5* & very tasty!

My partner had - Roast duck & wide noodles! This was incredible & such a great portion we couldn’t finish it!

To follow, custard filled buns- again, highly recommended!

Book this restaurant you won’t be disappointed!

The greatest dim sum! A very cute, different sort of Asian restaurant from NYC. All the dishes were delicious; some interesting plays on traditional dim sum. The team were friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go again.

First time at RedFarm and it was a success. In particular the duck with rice noodles was fanstastic. Very nice service and fun place. I would say a little bit expensive for what it is but can't fault the food. Overall a high-quality place and would recommend.

The main dishes came at separate times; one came with the starters and one came after starters. It costs about double what it should do (call it the location premium).

They looked after us so well! It was my birthday, and they brought a couple of small nibbles on the house. I managed to clumsily spill my glass of champagne, and was feeling a bit sad- but they brought me a new replacement! Had a wonderful night with Red Farm- food top notch as usual. But the service really brought it home. Thanks Richard and crew!

The food here is really good! We went here for my brother's birthday dinner. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and there was not one thing we disliked about the food. Was a little on the pricier side but we will definitely be going again in the future.
