Great authentic food

Visited this restaurant with my boyfriend after having walked past it so many times on our way to Quayside. We had a starter and main course during HeiHeis happy hour and we were amazed by the value for money. The food we received was absolutely great - fresh, authentic and really tasty. The... read more

About half of the dishes listed as 'vegetarian' also say "in oyster sauce", so the first thing I asked our waitress was "does the oyster sauce contain oysters?". "Yes, it does", she replied. "What, even the dishes listed on the vegetarian menu?" "I'll go ask the chef", and she went away to do so. She returned and said "No, they're... More

We visited this restaurant on Saturday 8th August for dinner.We were visiting Newcastle and had read that this restaurant had won several awards. Unfortunately we were not impressed. Our starters were excellent, however my crispy chicken had texture similar to leather, my wife and daughter's main courses were passable though not outstanding. Overall a disappointing evening, and this restaurant did... More

My wife and I visited Hei Hei in Newcastle for the first time last week. I must say that I'm not a big fan of Chinese food ( my wife is though). But .. Well what can I say. .WOW. From the moment we walked in we were impressed. The decor, the staff, were brilliant. And the food was wonderful.... More

As a change from a buffet on Stowell Street we had the happy hour lunch here. The restaurant only opens at 100pm on Saturdays (1200 noon on weekdays). We had a leisurely enjoyable two-course meal (£7.95) and were finished by 200pm which was perfect for the 15 minute walk to SJP. My satay starter and lemon chicken were both excellent.... More

My friends & I visit this place several times a year, the service is friendly and quick, and the food is generally of a high standard. In my opinion it's one of Newcastle's best restaurants.

Absolutely beautiful food, we had an hour before our film started and we told them. They made us a priority and brought our food and drinks as soon as they could. Lovely friendly staff and a great meal with a lovely atmosphere. Thank you we will see you again soon.

The staff are friendly enough but service was very slow. Not getting some of our drinks till after food arrived. The food itself was OK, nothing blew my mind but it was tasteful enough. A few dishes were not quite hot enough however and could have done with some warming up. Overall, I may come back here again but I... More
