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.

We had a fabulous lunch here last weekend. The staff are friendly, attentive and provide excellent service. The food was exceptional. We ate a mix of the set menu and from the specials board. I’m still thinking about the baked cheese - it was AMAZING!!

Absolutely loved everything about this lovely restaurant. From the pre-dinner cocktails to the 10 dishes that the three of us shared plus dessert, it was all so good. Particular mention to the lady who served us downstairs (short blonde hair) as her advice & attentiveness...were very much appreciated.More

Lovely food. Good price. Good range of gluten free options. 3 dishes per person is enough and the portions are generous!

Food was excellent! Great flavour, good portion sizes and Asif was a brilliant host. Very friendly and extremely helpful. The %25 off for being an NHS worker was a big bonus too!

Asif was very attentive and open to making sure my girlfriend’s food was all catered to not trigger her allergies. Can say after the meal she was still alive so kudos to the chef and Asif for making our meal as enjoyable as possible. It...was also delicious.More

Great little Tapas place which is a taxi ride from Newcastle City centre. Selected as it was number one on Trip Advisor. Very friendly welcome and good advice as to the number of dishes to order. An extensive tapas menu and we particularly enjoyed the...Chorizo in honey and ham croquets. So much that we ordered them again after finishing the initial 6 dishes. The food arrived very quickly (within 5 minutes of ordering) and all of it hot. The slight negative was the meatballs were under seasoned for us and there was a lack of condiments on the small tables. Other than that it is definitely worth a visit.More
