Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Been meaning to eat here for a while, always busy. Called in for lunch and managed to get a table for my wife and I. Infusion has a great diverse menu from your standard Chinese fare to dishes you would never think of. We ordered...King Prawns for starters and were superb. I’ve never sampled Frogs Legs since a visit to Paris several years ago and here they are on the menu, so ordered the iron wok frogs legs in chilli oil, wow portion size was fab and really enjoyed the dish. Will be returning in a couple of weeks time.More

Me and my friends absolutely loved it. The restaurant is laid out beautifully, nicely decorated with spinning marble tables. As were not natively Chineese, we were unsure of what dishes were similar the ones from a chinese takeaway. But without even asking the waitress came...over offering help and support!!!! She was SO lovely. Although pricey, the food was extremely worth it. My friends and I got a little bit of everything and shared so I can tell you for certain the food is unreal. You can even use knives and forks if the chopsticks aren’t for you. Seriously cannot recommend going enough from the staff service, to the wait time (15 mins max!!!!) and most importantly the food. So so lush.More

Excellent service, with an authentic menu, including some classics. Something for everyone. Starters were Hot & Sour soup, chicken satay and veggie dumplings. Mains were chicken katsu curry and rice, braised beef noodle soup and house special hot pot. Portions were huge, so tasty, good...quality and excellent value. Will definitely recommend.More

I assume that’s when it opened, which means I spent a good few years missing out! So I’ll get to the point, it’s the best Chinese restaurant in Newcastle! It’s an actual Chinese not a glorified takeaway as you would find many of on Stowell...street (hello Landmark!) We went mental and had far to much but I didn’t regret it for a second! All the staples of a good Chinese, spring rolls, dumplings, braised pork belly, Szechuan beef etc. all top draw stuff! It’s a simple place with not a lot of frills but I quite like that. No pretence and it lets the food do the talking! Not just one of my favourite Chinese but one of my favourite restaurants in Newcastle!More

We had such a good time. The staff was super lovely, what made our experience even better. The food was delicious. I couldn't help but ordering it again on this visit, the AUBERGINE AND MINCE PORK CASSEROLE. That dish is just so so tasty, I...recommend it to everyone. Looking forward coming back Thank youMore

We walked past the place by chance as I never knew it existed. Some dishes are halal as well, as they even told us what butchers they shop from. The service is very good, the lady is really nice too. Would like to come again.

Granted, this restaurant has dishes you won’t find from your average Chinese takeaway, but it’s way too overpriced. Mains don’t come with rice, and they charge £10 for the simplest of dishes, like broccoli with garlic — which is exorbitant. If it weren’t for the...crazy high price tag, I’d recommend getting food from here, but alas...More

Hi, pricing isn't too different from other chinese/asian restaurants in the area. Rough average, maybe around the £7/8 mark per main dish.

Hi there, I'm not a vegan, so I wouldn't have been looking for vegan food on the menu, but there are a number of vegetable dishes on there, but as to whether they are suitable for vegans I can't say unfortunately.
