The Best Restaurants In Portland’s Chinatown
The Culture Club, February 18, 2016
The Red Robe provides customers with an authentic Chinese experience. As one of the few restaurants to provide Gong Fu tea service, the waiter here will take the time to explain the story behind every tea, how is it poured, and the reasons as to why the black teas belong in clay pots and green ones in glass pots. The food is just as phenomenal however, with irresistible menu items such as the home-made dumplings that are cooked with fresh ingredients and burst with flavors. There are many reasons as to why the Red Robe is one of Chinatown’s most beloved restaurants!

Portland is well known for its craft beers and fine coffees. If Red Robe has its way, exotic teas will soon enter that list. Since opening in 2011, this tea house and restaurant has been introducing Portland to new varieties of oolong, green, herbal, black and pu’er teas. The food also shines. “This is the best Chinese restaurant I have experienced in Portland!” writes Jon T. of Gresham. Yelpers have good things to say about most dishes. Curry meatballs, marinated beef shank, black mushrooms with greens, and mapo tofu are just a few of them. The authentic Chef’s Menu, available to large groups, is also worth exploring. “Highly, highly recommended!!!” Portland’s Tara P. says of Red Robe’s entire menu.
