The Red Emporer

Introduction: Reputedly perhaps the best Yum Cha in Melbourne

Ambience: Very pleasant on the upper level overlooking the Yarra at Southbank.

Service: The usual constant passage of food laden trolleys

Food: Again much the same as everywhere else. One unusual dish was a scallop with mushroom served in a cream sauce topped with grilled cheese served on the shell.

Wine: Some inexpensive by the glass. Reasonable selection at fair prices
Price: Only a little dearer than suburban restaurants - about $30 per person

Comments: Good but not as good as Imperial Kingdom my benchmark for excellence for Yum Cha

Score: 14/20
