Myself, partner and son walked in without making a reservation about 6.30 on a Saturday evening ( not a match day ), and were shown to a very nice table in a booth with a lazy Susan. I think we were lucky because as the evening wore on the restaurant became quite full. It is a reasonably big place so you do not feel like you are crowded out.Just a note to say this place is very busy on a Saturday when Newcastle are playing at home. After match drinkers take over the place, choose your night out carefully. The menu was quite extensive with a good selection of set meals. We chose a mid range banquet , chicken & sweetcorn soup, then crispy peking duck (cooked to perfection), a bit shy with the pancakes , there was a good portion of duck. The the mains which was a chicken dish, a beef dish and a prawn dish.along with the special fried rice. We asked to change one of the dishes which was not a problem. The meals were spot on, I've been to this place previously and the quality of the meals are consistently very good.The table service was attentive and not intrusive. It is not the cheapest in town, to me , quality service in a good atmospheric restaurant count for a lot. If you want to go to a buffet and stand in a queue like in a school dinner hall to save a couple of quid, fair enough, there are plenty of places along Stowell street and nearby. .
