Were in Newcastle this weekend and really fancied a Chinese, so did a quick Google. This restaurant came up, it had very good reviews, and even better - it was 2 minutes from our hotel. The food we had was absolutely wonderful - so fresh tasting and generous portions. The staff were extremely friendly - I just wish this restaurant... More

We had duck to begin with and ran out of pancakes which they refilled at no extra charge. Main meals were large portions which we couldn't finish but we got to take them away with us. However,...

I decided to return to Hei Hei after many years, having first visited when it initially opened. On entering, I noticed the decor hadn't changed at all (either internally or external) but it doesn't look particularly run down or in need of a lick of paint. There were some tables with discarded food/plates as we were ushered toward the back... More

Deliciously authentic Chinese food. It always tastes great and incredibly fresh. The happy hour deal is great value. Each time I have been it has been a little quiet, but this has meant that we were able to get a table!
