“Most Enjoyable.”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Dropped in early without a booking mid-week. Clearly very popular as it filled up as we eat. Very nice décor and atmosphere which is deceptive from outside. Food was very good and would definitely go back.

“A very classy act”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

From the reviews we knew this was a highly rated eatery and recognised that we needed to ring early to book. It was evident from this first contact that the Artisam is a class act. Our initial booking was to be for 4 people, but as time grew nearer to our visit to watch our local rugby football team play at Corbridge our party of friends grew to 10. We arrived to find a huge circular table set up for our party in a pleasant/comfortable area of the restaurant. The lighting and decor was harmonious and the place was clean and well cared for. We selected a set banquet menu. Every dish was a delight, very good quality food, perfectly cooked and well presented. Throughout our meal we served by probably 5 or more members of staff, without exception they were all attentive, pleasant and efficient. We were advised at the time of making our reservation that there would be no time limit on the table if we arrived at 8pm, we left at probably around 10.30pm and at no time did we sense that here was a rush to close. However a possible restriction on occupancy table time needs to considered if you wished to commence eating earlier. With 6 or 7 bottles of wine amongst our party the bill was most certainly not cheap, but everyone agreed that they really enjoyed the overall experience. I have not doubt we will be queuing up for a repeat visit next year if our teams meet again in the same league.

“As Good as Ever”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Six of us went last night for our son's birthday and we had a great time, Four of us had a Very Nice set banquet and two had a starter and main each..................there was Tons of Food, more than enough to Fill 4 Teenagers with some left over, The service was Good and the Food was fresh and well presented, It isn't Cheap but you do get what you pay for. They do 2 sittings on a Saturday night and if you book a table for 7pm, you need to be up and away from your table before 9pm, so the next sitting can have the table, it didn't bother us but some people may not like it, We will return as we always do,................oh yes

“beautiful, expensive, average”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Firstly, this is a beautiful restaurant to visit and will definitely impress if taking someone/people out. You must book in advance and make sure they give you a good table at the time of booking because they have a nasty habit of placing you in a not so nice spot - I am not sure if that is because of some sort of regulars get priority over early bookings or not but on the two times I have visited here they have placed us on not so nice tables despite being the first person in the diary for that particular night.

OK, bad tables and beautiful decor aside... the food is just average Chinese takeaway style food with a hefty price tag. Nothing special at all. Both times we went a-la-carte. The first time, we went for the squid... it was tough as leather boots... the chef needs to learn how to skin the squid before cooking it. It was inedible and not cheap. The second time, we kept to takeaway classics and the experience was better for it but you couldn't help think that you were being robbed at the price tag... which took away from a pleasant night.
