I have now been to this restaurant twice and from the first time, couldn't wait to return. The starter we had was the house mix and it was very tasty, then I had the deep fried salmon in red thai sauce and it was fab, I can still taste it now! My partner had deep fried sea bass and that... More

This place has a lovely atmosphere, very relaxed and welcoming. There is lots of seating on the upper level to the restaurant, however, we were sat in the downstairs part at the front which was very snug. My boyfriend and I opted for one of the set menus, the starter was a mixture of bits and pieces and all really... More

The Quayside in Newcastle appears to be undergoing a renaissance. This is the type of place that will keep your more discerning punter frequenting the area. The staff are lovely, the food is amazing, the ambiance good and the restaurant itself in a great old building with lots of character. Well worth a look....

Went for lunch with a friend. We were first in at 12-30 on a Saturday. The food is really good, the decor is good. But the service really needs to improve. Waited 15 minutes to just get asked if we wanted a drink. No advice given on the food although the waitress spoke English. During bringing food to tables they... More

Compliments to the chef at this place, They know how to cook! We ordered one of the set meals which included a variety of dishes and platters. There was not a single thing we tasted that was anything less than excellent. The food wasn't cheap but for what you get the price is fair. There was a hair in one... More
