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.
I took my dad here and he said it was the best food he’d ever had! He’s a big foodie so that’s saying something. Whenever he visits, he demands to go here. Hats off to the chef.
Excellent, delicious, authentic food. Thanks!
Not cheap but food was delicious and waiter was lovely - will definitely be going back.
Very delicious food with a great atmosphere!
Had a great time.
We really enjoyed our meal at La Yuan. It was our first visit and the staff were really helpful advising us on the menu. The food was delicious, really authentic and good size portions we will definitely be back. We even tried some tea which was a perfect finish to he meal. Thank you for a lovely meal.
Really enjoyed our meal wouldn’t of usually went to a restaurant like this but booked because of the 50% eat out scheme to be honest I wouldn’t go back without the 50% off I think it’s rather expensive for what you get
Cool space, unique feel, Covid compliant, great food though portions huge! Two dishes & rice too much for two people. Rice was not what I expected as a bit stodgy. Fabulous selection of teas & great service!
Brilliant food and enjoyed chuckling at a few neighbouring tables who could not handle the heat!
La Yuan is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Newcastle, the food is always of top quality and the service is friendly and attentive. We went during a very busy evening and did not have to wait long for service, food, etc. I had the woodear mushroom salad as a starter and the Sichuan fish stew as a main, and they were both superb. The flavours are always authentic and delicious.
Fantastic meal tonight - really special flavours. Delighted to revisit again, we will be back
Good place, we will come back
Amazing Chinese food in a lovely setting. Highly recommended.
Amazing food and service!
Wonderful food (every dish we ordered was brilliant), excellent service from staff, and all Covid safety protocols followed. Would absolutely recommend.
Excellent in all ways. The atmosphere was quiet due to the effects of lockdown and the eat out scheme (we went on a Friday) Otherwise we thought every aspect was superb
Food was fantastic, as was the service.
It was so nice to finally eat out at this restaurant after enjoying getting deliveries for about a year. It was even better in person will definitely be back soon.
A thoroughly enjoyable meal. Great service, very helpful staff. Will return and if you like tasty Chinese (especially Sichuan style) food then look no further.
Nice food and good service. Thanks.
Absoloutely love this place, from the staff, the menu, the food, just wonderful. It is always our first choice for a meal out and we always order too much, thankfully you can take it away too. We always order snowy ribs and the aubergine... oh my goodness! We then argue over which pork belly to get. The prawns are so tasty and fragrant, the menu has so many amazing items it is so difficult to minimise our order because everything is so good! Even the Dan Dan noodles that have blown out head off with heat! Still amazing! the fish stew looked fantastic but again we had already ordered too much to get that too! One day we will manage to order dessert of chocolate fondant as it sounds so good. Unfortunately we are Always so full and satisfied we never make it to dessert! Highly recommend.
The most authentic Sichuanese food I've had outside of China. Absolutely delicious 😍
