this was our second visit to HeiHei and we were looking forward to the return and we were not disappointed The food was very good - lovely flavours and hot. We had forgotten how big the portions were and despite our best efforts we couldn't finish all the meal, which was a shame.

I've been to Hei Hei around 5 times now, both for lunch and evening social/ business meals. The restaurant is atmospheric and the service has always been good but it is the food really sets Hei Hei apart from other restaurants, the flavor of every dish I have tried has been outstanding, and the food is always presented with visual...

Went for early tea straight after work at about 5.30. Not overwhelmed by the food or atmosphere at all, obviously it was early so not a lot of people in but I kind of felt like I was an inconvenience to the staff! Food came far too quickly for it to be fresh but the salt and chilli ribs were... More

I was brought here by a friend who dines regularly with his family and wasn't disappointed. The menu was wide and varied, containing the usual suspects plus many dishes not normally seen and some with explanations of where they originate from in China. I had the dim sum platter started which was actually two pieces of each of three different... More

Every time we are in Newcastle we try to visit this wonderful Chinese restaurant. It has loads of unusual dishes and the ones we have tried have all been superb. Add to this good service and low prices and you're on a winner

Nice restaurant. Food and service are of a high standard. We enjoyed our Chicken and Sweetcorn soup, and Mixed Platters. The Chonquin Chicken was a large portion and cooked nicely, and would have been even better if it had more flavour (more onions, garlic, etc.) Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed with the Spicy Hot Poached Pork which was seasoned to...
