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

Another fab meal with friends at Electric East - love the eclectic décor inside and the food was amazing as always. Owner always makes a tremendous effort to speak with each table and ensure everything is OK. The starter of scallops was extremely good and the tempura prawns looked fab - left the place feeling very full and satisfied.

We had walked past Electric East a few times before our visit and it always smells great from the street. Anyway, finally we decided to try it pre-theatre one night. The interior was very nice, good atmosphere and arrangement, and the service was efficient and polite. We chose from the tapas menu (offering 2 people 6 tapas for £24). Whilst... More

The evening here was a wonderful way to end our city break in Newcastle. A bit tricky to find but well worth the stroll. Décor is so different and the warm welcome and fun atmosphere set the tone for the whole experience.We loved the food and could not believe how inexpensive it all was. The starters and tapas are big!... More

After hearing rave reviews I came to Electric East with a couple of mates prior to a work leaving do. It has a nice atmosphere which is welcoming but not too loud to put you off, and we were swiftly seated with a drink in hand. The food itself has a wide selection of different Asian specialities, and we went... More

We popped in for some food before a gig in town on a spur of the moment as The Forth was packed. I'd tasted their food before at a good festival and was quite impressed. I hadn't booked but it was early on a Saturday and when we walked in there were only 2 tables that had customers. We were... More
