Great food, slightly over priced for the ambience and Chinese food... but the taste would make it justifiable for a special occasion

The servers could not have cared less about doing a good job and seemed completely uninterested...

Food was OK - a little greasy.

Dumplings are very good and so is their iced home-made Jasmin tea, but the rest of the menu is average and no fine food. Overall, it's good but way below expectations from all what I had heard

Really terrible. Stupid menu with weird sounding food, erratic servers and stodgy badly executed food. Beautiful styling for the insta generation but that’s not all there is to a restaurant.

The food was very good but the price way too high. In addition to this the waitress was very rood. She was particularly annoyed when we asked her to give us more time to choose was to order after she told us that the things we wanted to order in the menu weren’t available anymore. Although the quality of the food is really high, I don’t think it’s worth the price. The toilets also need to be modernised.

The food was amazing, service was great good recommendation from the waitress. Only small thing was the scallion pancake was a disappointment. The shrimp & snow pea leaves dumplings were to die for. Great atmosphere. Will definitely go back.

The food and staff was lovely, the staff were also very friendly. The only thing that spoiled our visit was the music, which we felt wasn’t necessary. The music made it feel like a grab’n go sort of place. But clearly from the pricing and service, it is anything but. Also the price of the food was a dash expensive for how much you got. Beside those things though, we had a lovely time.

Great food and good service but not a place to linger so ideal pre or post theatre or where speed is of the essence.

Had a very enjoyable pre-theatre meal at RedFarm. We were very impressed with all of the food, particularly the spicy chilli beef and duck noodles. The service from our main waiter was very professional and friendly, he made us feel very comfortable. There were some waiting staff who were less engaging. Overall our experience was fabulous and would definitely recommend.

The restaurant is very simple but nice. The service is good but not top, as it is not expected to be. The food is amazing and some dishes are absolutely unbelievable. The chef is a real genius. We will be back for sure.

Do not book this restaurant for Brunch without calling them first (even though there is nowhere on this website that says to do so).

We arrived for a birthday brunch and were told we couldn't have it. Why let us book a table at that then? The confirmation email said the table was for the brunch. I was 'told off' for not having called because 'it says to do so online' and I checked all reservation confirmations and all information on this website and nowhere did it say this. It also didn't say anywhere what the timings are for the brunch.

Thankfully, the birthday boy didn't know we were going here in the first place, so whatever happened was a surprise. But I struggled to hide my disappointment which put a bit of a downer on things. And it was kind of obvious when I started googling other restaurants before we ordered drinks.... But a few days before Xmas things were understandably full.

The food is tasty and good, but expensive for what it is. Drinks very pricey (which is why I had booked the all you can drink brunch...)

Service is average. The staff are nice enough, but it was very easy for them to just ignore us - they quite often just stood chatting away while I was trying to get there attention. One lady also just reached across our table to pick up something (a menu left behind or an empty glass) while I was in the middle of grabbing some food and knocked it from my hand - she didn't say a word.

This would be good for a meal if you're not interested in value for money, or in getting what you're expecting when you walk through the door.

Otherwise - plenty of similar better value options very close-by.

In some ways I would be more than happy to go back - but this experience left a bitter taste.

The food taste is great, but very small portion so the price is high. The service not so good. My friends arrived first, apparently the stuff isn’t nice, doesn’t acknowledge him when they arrived, moreover squeezing three of us into the edge of a long table, claiming there was another huge party coming . So won’t give us a booth even after we made a reservation, when there is no group coming even after we finish the meal
