Due to the new COVID-19 Government Mandated regulations we are now only able to provide takeaway meals.

All of our tables and chairs have been removed and whilst ordering in store, we respectfully request all of our customers abide by the Social Distancing rules both to protect other customers and our staff.

Over the next week we are going to start offering a home delivery service from Tewantin to Sunshine Beach for people who are self-isolating or who don't want to be out in public. This service will attract a $5 delivery fee to cover the costs of this service. Please be patient with us as it has to be properly set-up and staff trained so that the product that arrives at your door is of the best quality.

While it is very hard for our staff to practice Social Distancing at work with each other, they have been told that they must do it outside of work. At work they are all using Antibacterial Hand Wash, gloves and all surfaces are being cleaned with a strong industrial sanitiser. We are doing our best to protect both staff and customers.

We thank all of our customers for their continued patronage and look forward to the time when we are thru these uncharted waters.

Stay well from the team at the RED EMPEROR
