Whilst the food was quite nice and the menu was unique, the location was great with lovely views. Some dishes were slightly pricey and the woman working their was quite rude. Staff seemd a bit annoyed we were there as it was a quiet night looked like they wanted us to leave so they could as well. More...

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.

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...

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!

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
