About La Yuan
La Yuan is Newcastle’s only authentic Sichuan Chinese restaurant, based in the heart of Newcastle city centre, just moments from China Town. The restaurant itself is modern with a relaxed atmosphere, with a friendly team on hand to recommend dishes or talk customers through their extensive Chinese Tea menu.
La Yuan’s food menu fully embraces the Sichuan province’s cuisine, which is renowned across China for the harmonious blending of flavours, boasting delicious dishes such as Dan Dan Noodles, Red Oil Dumplings, Gung Bao King Prawns, Shuei Ju Beef and more. The food at La Yuan is always made with fresh and healthy ingredients, without compromising any of the rich, unique Sichuan flavours that can’t be found anywhere else in the city.
The reviews of La Yuan from customers and local food bloggers speak for themselves, with many people claiming La Yuan is the best Chinese restaurant in the city, as well as a vast range of other regular positive feedback.
Superb food and great attentive staff. Cocktails were particularly nice. Looking forward to the next time. Would also recommend the soft shell crab. Only negative was the price of the Jakehead Beer which whilst was lovely, a little bit pricey at £7.50 per 500ml.
Great food, definitely the best and most authentic Chinese I’ve found in the UK
Deeply flavoured and satisfying food, excellent service and great value for money.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, food was excellent and plentiful. I would definitely recommend a visit.
Feel like there could be more options for sides especially a few noodle alternatives
Superb food and excellent service. King prawns to die for
Food and Service both excellent.
Brilliant and delicious, staff were fantastic and even though very busy, food did not take too long to arrive. Can honestly say the best Chinese I have had outside of China. Completely different to British Chinese food which again was a real bonus. Will be coming back very soon. Thank you for a fantastic evening.
Our second visit to La Yuan - even better than the first! Long Lee Fish Soup and Red Oil Dumplings were particularly good. The smoked plum juice is always delicious too! Fabulous service from our waitress, I didn't catch her name but she said she'd only been there for a week - keep her, she's brilliant! Can't wait to return.
This was only our 2nd time at La Yuan. It was as good as the first time we went and I can't wait to go back again.
We visited for the first time on Friday, food was amazing, service was great and the restaurant was immaculate. Great selection of teas too.
Great food, amazing flavours, loads to choose from. Will definitely be making a return visit
Amazing food- can’t wait to go back!
A super little restaurant, friendly helpful staff Fresher than fresh food - zingy and clean-tasting. Served beautifully and such a refreshing change from the traditional Chinese restaurant.
Lovely staff and great food.
Such a lovely experience. Service was friendly and not Intrusive and successfully accommodated our large party of 12. Amazing food. The sea bass and braised duck were especially incredible. Can't wait to go back.
Excellent find, food and service was brilliant and the restaurant itself is lovely. Will definitely be back
Amazing food, best meal I’ve had in a long time!
Excellent Szechuan food. High quality ingredients combined with clever cooking and bags of flavour. I love it.
This was our 6th visit and looking forward to returning
Fantastic restaurant and incredible authentic food. Very creative menu, was excited to give dressed jellyfish a try! The staff are amazing and so helpful! Probably my favourite restaurant in all of Newcastle and one of the best Chinese meals I've had my entire life.
Beautifully presented food, high quality and great taste and very stylish venue.
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.
