    Always a great experience. The food and the staff are great. Also, they cater for and understand Coeliac (GF) requirements. They even stock GF Beer - O-Briens.

    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.

    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.
