I'm a local and we've been going to the red emperor for nearly a decade so thought it was time to write a review. I was shocked to see all the bad ones they've had recently. These guys really are the best at what they...More

We ordered calamari and chips. The calamari could be used in a rope to bundgy jump. Tough, thick like elastic bands with little batter and no taste. The tartar sauce was obviously a cheap brand, strong vinegary taste and transparent consistency, not a great creamy...More

Used to be good a few years ago, but has deteriorated. The fish (coral trout) had no taste at all. The batter was thick and greasy. Not at all enjoyable. The chips were good. Overall, an expensive tasteless meal. Won't be back.

Expensive fish and chips! Fish was wafer thin, what looked like leftover bits, edible but nothing special.

We eat here almost every two weeks as it is my parents favourite place to eat. The fish is fresh, and always deliciously cooked, whether you choose batter, crumbed or grilled, there are lots of other freshly prepared options as well as fresh oysters and...More

This is a busy place, there are some tables where you can eat your takeaway, or you can carry it across the road to the river. We chose flake (from a selection of fish) and chips and grilled salmon and salad. The salad was fresh...More

Our family have been holidaying in Noosa for many years and the Red Emperor is a must for the best fish and chips in Noosaville. We love to grab some dinner and walk across to the river for a twilight picnic.
