Yet another fantastic meal at the new rendezvous. The staff are always helpful and polite, the manager is one of the nicest men u will meet and the food is sensational. Definitely my favourite restaurant by far!

“fantastic! Best Chinese food we have ever eaten!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

We visited the new rendezvous on a Friday night in March 2012. We had booked a table for eight however, they were absolutely packed so we did not get seated until 9. We sat in the lovely bar and the manager brought us a free round of drinks and prawn crackers to apologise.

The food was exceptional! I had the crispy beef and white chocolate dessert! delicious!

It is slightly pricier than competitors but well worth it and I can't wait to return!

“Absolutely the best Cantonese Restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

We have been going to this restaurant for special occasions for over 30 years and, even though the premises have changed, this is still the best Chinese/Cantonese Restaurant we have ever eaten in. The food is hot, fresh and perfectly cooked, the atmosphere is intimate, cosy, warm and friendly and we are always greeted personally by the owner Kevin Liu, whose establishment is second to none. He calls it his Family Restaurant - and it certainly is - we feel like family even though our visits are infrequent. It is always full of families enjoying good food and lovely ambience. Slightly more expensive than average but worth every last penny! Every last detail is attended to - absolute perfection! Highly recommended but you have to book in advance - it's always busy!

“food excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

Have been going to Rendezvous for the last 24 years the food is always fantastic.
If you want something that isn't on the menu they are willing to oblige. The service is always friendly and helpful. It can get quite busy mid evening so service will be slower as everything is cooked to order so patience is required but well worth the wait.
The best chinese cuisine I have had in the North East of England

“Good - but had better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and to other chinese restaurants and although it is more than adequate, I have definitely had better, including other chinese restaurants in Ponteland itself.
