At this dim sum house from Ed Schoenfeld and Joe Ng, dumpling devotees can find signature plates and Asian-inflected fare that, while wildly inventive, relies on classical Chinese technique. The soup dumplings are an absolute must-order, packed with pork and crab in a rich, flavorful broth.

NEW FAV RESTAURANT. We came yesterday (Christmas Day) and were surprised to be seated right away downstairs at Decoy -- I think they were using the downstairs restaurant as well because of Christmas overflow? Not sure but the food menu was RedFarm and the drink menu was Decoy. We started with the Katz pastrami egg roll which was UNREAL. Then moved to the crispy duck and crab dumplings which were served with a green curry sauce - totally not what we were expecting but incredibly tasty. Then we had the pork steamed buns which were divine. Next come the mains - we did the string bean spicy pork which was good but had minced pork, not a huge fan of minced meat but it was really good. The three chili chicken was also good -- more of a standard dish though. Then last but not least - the bbq beef fried rice was the real winner. That beef was INSANE. I love this place!!!!!!


I love this restaurant!There are two (I think!) one in the west village and one upper west side, I’ve only been the west village one but every time it has been fantastic!I first tried it out for brunch and it was incredible and such a nice change from the norm!All of the dim sum was incredible, far too many favorites to list, the Katz egg roll is also unreal!Everything I’ve eaten on the menu was just superb though so I don’t think you can be disappointed!I also did a birthday brunch there, at the big group table at the front, and they were SO accommodating and great with a fairly big group.Can’t wait to go back!


Got the clay pot chicken and thought it was good. A friend of mine got the pack man shrimp dumplings. We were both pleased. It's a little bit of a walk if you're trying to just have a night in the West Village but if you're close by it's worth dropping in.

I've seen pictures of the Pac-Man dumplings for as long as I can remember. I would even go as far as to say they might be my first memory of the restaurant boom and food playing a bigger role in media, so I always had a desire to try RedFarm. 


I went on a Sunday and though it was busy, we were seated with no wait. Naturally I ordered the Pac-Man dumplings, along with the scary-looking, but tasty, crab and duck fried dumplings, the pastrami egg roll and the three chili chicken. Though everything was good, I didn't feel like anything was amazing. The fried dishes were a little too greasy for me and none of the dishes really stood out, but I had a nice experience there. Will I go back? Probably not, but I am glad I made the trip at least once.
