Have been here several times a year for 10 years and the food and service always very good. Friday and Saturday night are busy and noisy. Other times its great. Always made welcome. Prices not cheap but you get what you pay for. Note they dont have a website and their prices on generic "menu sites" are old and wrong... More

The best Asian food in Newcastle by a country mile. Always packed and their take away at the back is also packed. Never had a bad dish here and they've got the awards on the wall to prove it

The best Chinese food I can remember eating. Honey king prawns were very crunchy and extremely fresh. Could not stop eating the bbq pork and the ginger beef. As the food was of such quantity we decided to preserve the lemon chicken for home later.

Overcharged me, Said that the online menu was different from the one in store. Food wasn't even worth it. Worst experience and rude staff!
