Lovely food and good portion sizes
We booked a week ahead and received a confirmation email a few days before which is reassuring. On arriving we were greeted and seated and the ordering of drinks and food was perfectly conducted with personable and efficient staff present at all times. The food arrived and was delicious, as was the wine. All through the evening we were treated to great service which was friendly, and did not encounter any issues at all. Would definitely recommend the different and interesting menu of authentic Szechuan dishes. Restrooms were also immaculate.
We had lunch at 2pm. So it was quiet.
Perfect as always.
Great food and service and good portion sizes and nice venue.
Wonderful food and service.
Amazing authentic Sichuan food. Can not fault.
Second time visiting, this time we got Yu Shiang aubergine and Shuei Ju beef with the red oil dumplings and rice. So yummy! The beef was so tender and flavoursome! Also, great spice level, we went for authentic (we love spicy food though, this was quite hot for me which i like, but for the untrained I’d go for the reduced spice). You guys are now one of our favourite restaurants in Newcastle! I can’t wait to come back again soon and try some other dishes!
Great food, nice place, service was also good.
Absolutely amazing! Service was amazing, the waiter was very attentive and we had a good conversation. My partner, who lived in the Sichuan province for a year, said that this was the best food he has had since he got back 5 years ago. We will 100% be coming back! Thank you for a wonderful late lunch.
We ate at a quiet time which is why I only gave 3 stars for atmosphere. Food was excellent. Fresh & flavoursome. Gung Bao King prawns triumphant! Service was impeccable. We will return.
Lunchtime meal for eight of us; new menu items (we've visited before) hit the right spot - dumplings were AMAZINGLY good. Highly recommend this restaurant - it's a cut above the other Chinese style restaurants in this great city
Although vegetarian options were limited, the food we had was great, especially the aubergine. The restaurant had a really nice ambience, and the service was very friendly.
Spot on once again see you on the 18th jan
Lovely food and relaxed setting. Food delicious, even if a bit too spicy for me. I had the Gung Bao chicken. Generous rice portions.
Could be spicier, but overall flavour of food is good.
A really lovely restaurant in a great location. Staff are super friendly and attentive. The food is good, but definitely not standard Chinese and it contains lots of chilli. A really interesting choice of dishes made for some great conversation amongst our small group. We had a great meal that worked out less than £30 each so good value too!
An excellent meal, good location, great service. Don't come here thinking you will get the usual enormous menu of chop sueys, chow meins, sweet & sours etc, because you wont. Its a selected menu of specific dishes, with a choice for whatever your preference. My sheui ju beef was tender in a fantastic authentic spice, fantastic dish
Great food and service.
Good food, large portions, lovely service. A few tweaks needed but a good night overall
First visit, and we will come again. Everything was top class, especially the staff who were as good as you can get. Highly recommended.
Having spent some considerable time in China, this is the closest I have tasted to Chinese authenticity in the heart of Newcastle. Tingly and delicious.
Delicious, authentic flavours and great value. Really nice modern decor, great service. Highly recommended.
Fabulous food, attentive staff, lovely atmosphere and clearly very popular. Will definitely be back.
