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
