18th birthday meal for daughters, other daughter, boyfriends and the wallet. We love this place - food, service and ambience all second to none. Oh, and as we were leaving our daughter was given a bottle of Prosecco by management - try it!!

What can I say excellent, excellent, excellent every time. Have been going here since it first opened (over 20 years ago, I think with the lovely Henda fronting house, God rest his soul, he is sorely missed). This continues to be the best Chinese restaurant in the north east and possibly the country, I am biased as the staff know... More

Great service, delicious food! Been eating there for years for special occasions, big family parties, date nights and casual lunches. Lunch menu is exceptional value- long may it continue! The staff are easy going and non-intrusive. Chairs are reasonably comfortable- always something I look for. Decor is smart oriental and inoffensive. Positives- Best tasting chinese food in Gateshead, relaxed atmosphere,... More

Not been to this restaurant in a while as we moved out of the area, so when a special birthday came around decided to round up the family and make a return down memory lane. We weren't disappointed as the special lunch was still as plentiful and varied as it was back then. Chicken & sweet corn soup for starters... More

Called in by chance without booking. They tried hard to get us a table thankfully. We were treated to a great meal with excellent service. We will definitely call again but will book first.
