No fuss or frills, just excellent food and reasonable prices. You can consume your own alcohol which makes the venue much more appealing as you will want to spend your pennies on the excellent array of dishes. I would recommend getting the set menu and sampling lots of dishes, especially if you are with friends! The staff were helpful and... More

Lebanese food - very tasty and different from the 'usual' restaurant - Chinese, Indian, Italian etc. The location is also different - down Byker Bank near Morrisons. Inside it is bright - no soft lighting or furnishing, so lively and easy to read the menu! Gets very busy - probably worth booking. We went on a Tuesday, 6:30pm. It was... More

Now renamed the less authentic but probably easier to remember "The Bake" this immensely popular restaurant sits under the Metro bridge at Byker. We went on a Friday evening in a large group that was pre-booked and were split over two tables. It was packed when we arrived and there was some wait whilst people finished at the tables that...

A simple, no fuss restaurant with delicious, traditional food. It's not the place to go for a romantic dinner for two but If you like mezzes, as we do, then this is the place for you. There is a wide choice and all the ones we tasted were delicious.The prices are reasonable and the service is first class. We like... More

The place doesn't scream fine dining, but the traditional Lebanese food, the more than reasonable prices and the friendly staff make up for it all. It's a brilliant place for families and larger groups, wouldn't say it was typically for couples. Could eat everything on the menu! It's fab!

We order take away from Al Baik every so often, we love the food. Tonight for the first time our take away order was missing a couple of things . When I phoned they were very helpful and quickly brought the missing things, along with some extras on the house. Fab service.

We eat at the Albaik quite a lot since we found it in Byker. The food is amazing and the prices are reasonable- being able to take your own alcohol is great too! The only thing is that the restaurant is always very busy and the tables are very compact so its not a quiet relaxing meal by any means.... More
