    The host was so rude and awful to us. We had booked a quick dinner to meet before seeing a show for 3 of us and we shared 2 starters and a main between because we weren’t that hungry but still wanted to try the restaurant and the host was extremely rude to me saying that next time we should never do this and each person had to order a main and straight up asking us when we were going to leave. It ruined a perfectly good evening where we actually really enjoyed the food and were talking about coming back - but when the host actually started arguing with me and lecturing me we pretty much were like we’re never coming back! Such a shame! If the restaurant was so adamant amount minimums maybe they should include that when booking or when we ordered instead of attacking us when paying the bill. Just awful.

    Fabulous early dinner to cap off an afternoon birthday celebration. Didn’t venture beyond the starters for our group of five, as they were all divine in and of themselves. Wine list was thoughtful ranging from quaffable and affordable to some big and complex wines that held their own amidst the stunning flavours jumping off each successive order. Staff were knowledgable, helpful, chill and had crackingly quiet senses of humour. Loved every minute, and bite.

    Had a really lovely meal - in a bright, informal dining room. Thoughtful stellar service (the host had a great sense of humor,) scrumptious dumplings, mains & noodles (while a tad pricey - you could tell lots of thought has gone into each dish); wines were excellent too- leading to an all around excellent, exotic nosh, outside standard fair for a pre-theatre meal.

    Starters were very good and unique presentation. Main courses were very over priced and not great tasting. Staff seemed a bit lost and in a rush to get your courses served and you out the door. Not quite the same experience as Red Farm in New York, menu also not as large. Disappointing considering we spent £200 for a quick meal for 2 adults and 2 children.

    We had a delicious and beautifully presented meal. Two of our group had eaten in the Upper West Side branch in New York some years back and had raved about it, so I was keen to try it. It didn’t disappoint. The service was friendly and helpful and there looked to be some repeat customers, who over ordered so they could take some food away with them. A real treat for lovers of Chinese food.

    We really enjoyed our lunch. The crab and pork soup bun was wonderful, and the spicy beef was tasty (but not spicy). The prawn-stuff chicken and duck dishes were very good. The party next to us ordered several entrees including the lobster and a prawn dish, both of which looked very good. The food was flavourful and presented nicely. The staff were lovely and friendly. I look forward to returning and exploring more of the menu. It's a small space with a large communal in the middle, with some booths along the walls. The noise level was fine (except for the really drunk table of guests).

    Best advice is do not go: service is really bad (waitress is rude), food is bad (duck super salty, dim sums are meh, and too expensive for what they are), decoration is bad - basically: rather go to a local Chinese restaurant/Chinatown which is nearby, you’ll avoid the frustrtion of paying 80£ for three starters and one main which was frankly uneatable, in a bad decor, with lame music playing in the background.

    Food was very meh. I was expecting a lot from the menu, but in reality it was disappointing. The dumplings were average, the soup was ok, we stuck around for starters and got our mains elsewhere. We only got starters and the price was considerable, can't imagine if we'd have stuck around for main.

    We dined here on a Sunday and had their bottomless lunch menu for £68 pp, was really good value for money. Service was efficient and friendly. The food was really great and very fresh, we didn’t finish everything as the portions were very generous. Will definitely come back soon.

    We have been to red farm over 5 times since October 21 and loved it however this time was extremely disappointing. The quality of the food has gone down massively the portion size has been hugely reduced and the service was below par . We sent one dish back because it was freezing cold we got another it was Luke warm . Quality of meat was poor sauces not up to normal standard. I know cost of things is going up but your cutting to many corners I can get a lunch menus at a Michelin restaurant for cheaper and don’t get me started on the price of coke the doesn’t even fill up half a small glass. So disappointed won’t be returning

    We came to here twice!! I think really super good food… try the turbot, fried rice noodles with veggies, friend egg rice or more… all super delicious… just almophere is stuffy and small. We sat down at a booth super tight near the wc… so not very appealing but servers are nice and I think food is seriously very good!!!

    Much too expensive for what it was. Would have been a decent meal at half the price. The custard bun dessert was especially surprising. Mediocre, the most basic ingredients, and very poorly made, floury dough.

    We made a reservation for 5 for a birthday. We were led to a long, bench-like table and very squashed in. So much so our elbows touched the people next to us. The other couple next to is ended up leaving without ordering because they couldn’t move and were as uncomfortable as us! Waited quite a long time to have our order taken. Ordered starters and main courses. The main courses arrived less than 5 minutes after we had our staters - and therefore went cold while we finished our starters. We were told that one of the starters contained lobster and it was carrot! The food was very tasty but we felt VERY rushed. Was not the special occasion we were hoping for. Spent £200 on 5 of us (3 of which were children and only included 1 alcoholic drink, a beer)

    Food was not delicious. Taste was not balanced. Pieces of lamb and chicken was dry and tough and after felt like they stuck in the throat. The one star more is for dumplings. Sly and cheeky staff. Not comfortable sits. Overpriced. The mood from such a dinner was spoiled before the ballet. I do not recommend.
