Went for a birthday meal as we were visiting Newcastle for an overnight stay. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Drinks were a little on the weak side...couldnt taste much vodka in my double! Food was OK...bit greasy but ok. Huge portions! Would go again if in the area.

Staff were helpful and attentive. They sat us down with our booked table quick and easy. The food was delicious and we finished every platter. Although one serving is huge and can easily feed twee people. The Value of food was exceptional as well as the value of drinks (wine and champagne) was especially good.

We particularly liked the 2 aubergine dishes, grilled lamb skewers, spicy white fish packed with small chillies (not too hot), and the hot and sour soup. Most dishes were new experiences, and served very attractively too. The braised whole aubergine, sliced and fanned out, was... More

Having been to this restaurant for severals times now and it never disappoints. The food is fantastic and the service is great. Very relaxing atmosphere with a good collection of wine. Perfect for a night out with friends. Recommend it with no reservation.

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.
