Amazing Asian food, amazing views. Recommended
A little pricey and some of the "Tapas" are a little on the small side. Inconsistent quality - Tempura prawns & oysters were excellent - some of the pork not so eg. bao bun not typical of that supplied by other establishments. Shakey beef patty not very good!Dessert menu not very appealing - so had to stick to ice cream.Banquet menu was not an option as it included items we don't like!Could do with a slightly wider menu and less belly pork.We ordered 13 Tapas and 2 larger meals between 4 and only left some of the rice meal which contained nuts!Cost was over £150 and we only drank a total of 5 pints of Asahi.I think a good option would be to offer a small and large size of each tapas and side dishes so that sharing becomes easier.Will come back but probably to try the Far Eastern Curries.

Brilliant. Food is so tasty, plenty of vegan dishes. Highly commended.
Fantastic food and drinks. The staff were amazing. Ontop of our every need. Xx
A gem of a restaurant. The tapas is absolutely amazing and love the cosy riverside location and ambience inside. A good range of fresh and extremely delicious dishes to suit all tastes and a nice wine choice too.
Love it, right over looking the quay, food is lovely, so are staff, very clean
Good food lovely atmosphere
Found this gem and the tapas are tasty and just enough. They have vegan tapas options. The staff are friendly and helpful. The ambiance was also relaxed yet contemporary. I recommend this especially it's not along a busy street bit offers a fantastic view of the river. More...
Amazing little place with the most incredible menu. I can't recommend it highly enough!!

A wonderful evening with my friend....drizzly evening...and a peaceful table overlooking the river Tyne... the flavors played magic on our palates...The staff are warm and friendly..looked after us quite well ... The ambience is sooo calm ....Definitely going again.... More...
Delicious food great ambiance
Really lovely food and a beautiful (and historic) building that overlooks the river with a nice atmosphere. The service was a little brisk though, felt like we were getting a few 'eye rolls' from the staff when asking for anything- not the friendliest but definatley still an awesome place!
Always extremely friendly. Lovely tasting coffee and delicious food with an eastern twist.
Wonderful views over the river to the Castle, friendly staff and good food. The tapas style works really well with the Thai food. Crispy duck was excellent, Vietnamese spring rolls are very hot. More...
Fantastic place. Fabulous good and great service.
The food here was excellent! High quality and very tasty! Atmosphere great, staff very efficient and friendly!! Will definitely be returning !
Great drinks beautiful view
Excellent mix of great Asian food and good views
Craft beers and specialty ciders and perrys. Great venue with views over the city. Can’t get more chilled out if you tried.
Stunning food, amazing service.
Food is amazing and it's a great location. Got a really lovely feel to it.
Seriously good food, cheerful atmosphere, amazing dramatic venue. Favourite dish so far..pulled duck.
Ambience, service, and quality (and quantity) of food always exceptional here. Excellent value for money as well! The cocktail menu is innovative and delicious, and the staff are warm and faultlessly attentive. A definite favourite of mine.
Excellent Thaipas, and really good vegetarian options.
Nice vibe .. nice not to be rushed or harassed. Great food and atmosphere with a great view of the Tyne
When it comes to value, atmosphere & some where that gives you the tingles...this is the place. It has so much to offer: a private dining room you can hire, beautiful contemporary restaurant & a deck right over the river tune. Great value, great atmosphere & fabulous staff!!!! More...
Great place for Asian tapas and Currys. Good drink selection and great location.

Love this place. Food and wine perfect. Definitely recommend. Music maybe a touch too loud however.
Great thai tapas, great views of river and newcastle. Loved it
Outstanding food at a very good price.
Delicious food, good service, thanks a lot!
The food is out of this world good, the views are spectacular. Perfect place for our 30th Anniversary. Would have been five stars but for the tinny bashy music.
Great location and delicious food
Stunning food, excellent staff and a brilliant view. Will definitely be back - for the satay, if nothing else!
One of the best restaurants we have been too!
We had the curry here. It was a bit spicy, but very good! Choose of music was excellent here. Nice place to eat, with a view over the river and the bridges.
Visited for a staff night our and we had booked the downstairs of the restaurant. The food was served on a buffet that was regularly replenished. It's nice to sit outside and they even had blankets for anyone feeling a little chilly but still wanting to sit out. More...
Excellent atmosphere great food
Lovely outlook, lovely art and service great food
Gorgeous meal and surroundings..Excellent background music, and giving it the full five star edge, the best dessert I have EVER eaten (I am 31 and have eaten many many desserts. Ha) . Peanut butter chocolate tart. It's not what you would expect though, the tart is a warm light chocolatey almost mousse, but better. And the base is a light peanut buttery slightly sweet a little salty almost pastry but lighter and more delicious. With light dried raspberries scattered over it. It was out of this world! More...
Always a nice place to eat. Nice view across the river, nice music and distinctive food. Great.
Great place and riverside location with spectacular views.
Food was delicious would highly recommend
Great food and atmosphere.
Great food. Great location
Amazing as always!!!
Hidden gem on the banks of the Tyne. The tapas style menu is a great way to taste your way round pan Asia In 3-4 sharing dishes. The Nonya chicken Pad Thai is an absolute must. The restaurant has a relaxed vibe with decent cocktails and punchy tunes, the understated artworks all add to the zing ting.10/10 More...
Finally got to try this restaurant out Saturday night...I've heard nothing but great things about it.The food ...is....amazing so tasty the staff are lovely too and so helpful the lovely guy serving us (i'm sorry I didn't catch your name) was great and suggested all the food and it was perfect. The views from the balcony are gorgeous, I can't wait to go back we all had a great time. I would highly recommend the place. Thank you More...
Excellent food - the taste and quality was superb!
Beautiful food at very reasonable prices and great staff. What more can you ask for.
Excellent food. Nice atmosphere.
Had a fantastic work event with great food and surroundings. Can't wait to go back for a meal.
Lovely setting and view of the river. Service was a bit slow and even then brought out just one dish. Food was mostly good and overall nice atmosphere.
Brilliant place.I've been here twice now and the food is fantastic. Waitress even helped on our choice rather than us making a bad sides choice. The food is amazing, Thai fusion, really well cooked and good choice of veggie food.Highly recommend. It has a great view of Newcastle and an area to sit by the river. More...
I had a brilliant evening here on Saturday night, a perfect table by the window and amazing food. Every dish was incredible and the staff were all so welcoming and lovely. I would recommend this as the best place to go for authentic Asian food in Newcastle! More...
Good food served by helpful staff. Great views across the Tyne towards the Swing Bridge. There's an outside area too. A good range of food including eight vegetarian dishes one of which was a tasty Korean bibimbap.
Fantastic Asian tapas. Lovely river views and outside seating available. Just a 2 minute walk over the Swing Bridge from Newcastle Quayside. Close to the new shipping container village and Central Bar. More...
Always stunning food. Great atmosphere and location, excellent service
Consistent good food.
Amazing food....a must for Asian cuisine in Newcastle upon tyne
Been her a few times and never been disappointed, food and service absolutely perfect. Going back again on our wedding anniversary. Can't speak highly enough about the place. And by the way ignore the one star review by Supanan she prefers TGI Fridays. I suppose that says it all. More...
Lunch with my friend xxx amazing food . So delicious and tasty . Great service and amazing view
Had a romantic dinner here yesterday evening , great atmosphere , stunning view , unbelievable food . From the owner onwards everyone was brilliant, we will be going back and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone .
Great Staff, Great Food and Great Views Of Newcastle 5 Stars!!!
My hubby and I went today. It was very quiet but we were there at 2pm so didn't expect it to be busy. Food and service were excellent. Only criticism would be that when I order a glass of prosecco I would expect a full glass and not half a glass especially at nearly £5 per glass, however, this did not spoil our experience and would defo go back and would recommend without hesitation.Ps the ladies toilets could do with a makeover. Out of 4 toilets only 1 locked. Just saying x More...
Stopped for a quick drink , stayed a few hours. Good food, friendly people, great place to sit back, eat, drink and be merry.
Great location and views. The staff are really friendly, the food is well spiced and delicious, and the tunes are pretty decent. Definitely worth a punt!
Great mix of food, good view of the river and a nice atmosphere. Highly recommended the passionfruit posset for pudding.
Loved the venue and the good. But the music was just a bit too loud otherwise I would have given 5 stars.
Great atmosphere,wonderful views and amazing service
Great tasty food. Great ambiance. Great service
Lovely food and great view.
Brilliant place great atmosphere and staff ! First time here and won't be my last !! Well done
Great place, food is delicious, staff are lovely. Highly recommend
What a place. Just a shame it wasn't full of people.The view was incredible.The food was very good indeed.Definitely worth a visit.
Gorgeous new menu for 2018 with lots of gf and vegan goodies. ..super tasty....didn't think this place could get any better, but it does!
Amazing views and food. Best belly of pork I've ever had the pleasure of eating.
Popped in here for the Thai tapas... Had heard that the Rendang chicken wings were awesome, which they were! Wish we'd gone for the rounds of those, but had to try other things, so had the Salmon apple fishcakes, plus a minced lamb dish (eaten on salad leaves).In all honesty, had we not been heading elsewhere, I really would have sat here all night, working our way through the menu, as the rest of the food looked fantastic.The ladies had a few cocktails, such as a spiced mai tai and a whisky apple concoction... Me? I had a coke on account of driving, but the drinks overall looked great.The location? Brilliant. Just over the Swing Bridge, and with great views of the Tyne and the surrounding area.Overall though, go here, quickly, and make sure you enjoy a great place. More...
Great food, great tunes and an amazing view. Definitely plan on going back.
Nice Indian with a tapas twist
Great restaurant. Wonderful food and service Lovely surrounds with decor to high standard. Seating outside views over river. Well worth a visit. Very impressed. More...

Went here over Christmas. Lovely selection of food and great location. Recommended.
The food was amazing! We particularly liked the pork belly. The staff were so friendly and the service was great! I had some out of town friends visit and they loved this place on the Gateshead Quayside. Would definitely go again!
Excellent asian tapas in a lovely setting
