Very tasty food, and a plethora of gluten free and vegetarian options. It isn't cheap food, but it is delicious and decent servings. The one blemish was that the service didn't mat

Food exceptional, service was fairly lacklustre for first 20 minutes but improved markedly throughout lunch. As it was an “all you can eat” yumcha Sunday, we had to wait outside

Red Emperor is a great restaurant for Cantonese cuisine, especially yum cha. Wait staff were friendly and professional. Pricing is on the high side, though expected from the locale.

Best chinese dinner we have had in Melbourne. Very authentic. Menu to suit a range of palates. Mud crab cooked perfectly. Fantastic anniversary evening overlooking the Yarra.

We did not think that the food was as good as some places in Chinatown. No roast pork nor roast duck in the $60 deal. That was poor. For $180 for three, it was not up to standard.

Great yum cha as always, although there seemed to be slightly less variety than usual. Their gluten free options are many and made so well you couldn't tell they are GF.
