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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
