We had 3 courses here in October - all three were perfect, couldn't fault the food at all. Our waiter was extremely helpful, came just the right amount of times to ask about drinks and if everything was ok and explained some items on the menu. We will definitely be going back.

we arrived at 6:30 thinking to ourselves we had enough time to eat before going to see Queen at the Arena. After sitting for a while we were starting to worry about time and considered leaving so asked the waitress how long a meal would take as we had a concert to go to. She advised us if we wanted...

We have been regular visitors for years and this place never ever disappoints. The menu has some "favourites" that are tweaked every menu change & some new options to consider. Our selection this time over three "waves" all came from the starter selection. Waves is a popular way of sharing dishes. We chose pork and prawn roll - really crisp... More

Ate here for my graduation meal with my family, the food, staff and atmosphere are all fantastic! I would highly recommend the calamari.

A group of 22 of us went last night for a 3 course meal and we were definitely impressed. As we were a large group, we pre-ordered the week before and even that was fantastic. The management are obviously very easy going and communicating with them was really easy and they didn't hassle for a deposit either! The food was... More

Wow was my first impression! This place is located underneath a multi-storey car-park close to Dance City in the heart of Newcastle...you would either have to be parking or dancing to stumble across this place, however, stumbling into this place with my friend was so serendipitous. The decor alone is worth going in for, yet the warmth of the staff,... More

This is my second review for Electric East and it's because they have changed the menu since my last visit. There aren't many places in Newcastle that would make an effort to fit in a party of 8 on a Saturday night at the last minute, but after a quick phone call it was agreed that if we arrived ASAP...

We had been meaning to try Electric East for a while but hadn't got round to going. Four of us booked a table on Thursday evening and really enjoyed our meal. Great atmosphere - lively, intimate and spacious enough to be able to talk without too much background noise. We had tapas and main dishes in a leisurely manner -... More
