From famous Yum Cha to sumptuous banquets.

Red Emperor offers fine Cantonese cuisine with dashes of flavour from Hong Kong and other mainland regions. It has long been considered one of Melbourne’s best Chinese restaurants.

An excellent choice for both lunch and dinner, Red Emperor’s specialities include fresh seafood picked live from the tanks; Peking or Sichuan Smoked Duck; and a “Dundee Selection” featuring crocodile, kangaroo and venison. Its famous Yum Cha is served daily and offers one of the city’s best selections.

Relaunched in a new location on Southgate’s mid level in 2013, Red Emperor continues to boast a spacious dining area and dedicated balcony, serving traditional Chinese cuisine in elegant surroundings.
