About Redbird Chinese

Redbird Chinese is a modern Chinese restaurant perched on 99 Redfern Street. The latest venture from restaurateur partners – and Redfern locals – Hamish Ingham and Rebecca Lines (Tequila Daisy, Bar H), Redbird offers contemporary Chinese dining that showcases the perfect meeting of salty, sweet and sour. 

Opening in November 2022, Redbird’s menu heroes classic Chinese dishes using local and seasonal ingredients, including the eponymous red-braised bird, while Lines’ well-balanced drinks menu has been designed to complement the bold Asian flavours, featuring a collection of signature cocktails and a wine list that celebrates Australian winemakers. The neighbourhood eatery uses recycled timbers, exposed brick, terrazzo tiles and an elegant stone bar to create a sophisticated and warm space for diners to feast, linger, wind down and gather over a modern Chinese meal.
