My wife and I visited Electric East last night with friends and I can only say that it was an absolute treat! Although it was kind of mid-week the establishment had a really friendly and bust environment offering a really nice change of pace to other pan-Asian cuisine. We were greeted by some really warm staff who were welcoming us... More

If you have stumbled over some of my other reviews a recurring theme is the list of places I have wanted to visit for a while. Electric East is certainly one of those, having taken me at least 18 months to get sorted and pay a visit. It won't be 18 months until I return for sure. Tucked away in... More

This is my favourite restaurant when visiting Newcastle on business. The food is so delicious and the tapas menu (3 dishes for £12) is an absolute bargain. The tapas menu changes regularly. The main menu (thankfully) is small and perfectly formed. Great place, just come back from there and will probably be back tomorrow!!

If you want a good Asian meal in relaxing and eclectic surroundings then go no further. I love the varied Asian menu and quirky interior and the friendly staff add the cherry on the top. A small menu but forces you to try new things. Delicious!

Visited after hearing good things and was looking forward to some delicious food but got the opposite. Most of the food ordered was poor quality but the most disappointing was the trio of fish. The fish was bland as was the orange coloured purée it lay on. Oddly, the fish was accompanied by a pile of cheap chips. When asked... More

Great fusion of Asian food & a proper selection of Asian beers. We all enjoyed the delicious food & the service was adequate. Only missed 5 stars as it was a little hard to get attention sometimes & they ran out of the desert we wanted. Otherwise was a brilliant meal.

The menu at Electric East is varied and offers something to suit everyone. I've dined here several times and have never had anything but a delicious meal. The Shaking Beef is a particular favourite and the Rendang Beef is a great starter dish! A tapas menu is also available and offers a very reasonable deal. Get yourself down and give... More

I've been to Electric East a number of times in the last couple of years and I've never had a bad meal. The food is amazing, fresh and tasty. I took my family a couple weeks ago for my birthday and they were all very impressed!

We returned to this restaurant for a celebration meal with our daughter having first vistited some months ago. The food and service were absolutely brilliant again - I'd had a Lamb Randang from Electric East at a food festival in Newcastle about 6 months ago and it was stunning but unfortunately it wasn't on the menu in the restaurant. I... More

I booked this restaurant for a family get together and I wasn't disappointed. The staff were really friendly, happy to give suggestions for the food and very flexible on our choices.The food was delicious, there was a lovely atmosphere and we never felt rushed at any point. The staff were attentive but not overpowering so I would be very happy... More
