What a wonderful place for Dim Sum. After a quick google and a look around Chinatown, we found Sky. Taking the lift up brings you to a beautifully spacious and well lit restaurant that's just a little dated, but if you're here for the food you really won't care about the decor. Food wise, it's stunning. With a huge variety... More

We seldom eat in Newcastle's Chinatown these days if we do its usually Chinatown Express, they oddly don’t serve aromatic crispy Duck so kindly suggested this place across the road on the second floor. Winner! King Prawn curry, young chow fried rice, aromatic crispy Duck, Singapore vermicelli and chips, all very tasty. Fast, welcoming service to boot. One word of... More

It was on Boxing day evening and many restaurants were closed. We were cold and hungry and were desperate for some hot Chinese food before the game. We were a bit unsure when we walked into this restaurant as the stairs were leading us up to the 2nd/3rd floor. However, as soon as we sat down, things started to get... More

The decor is very bland and 'uncared for' which gives a bad impression; as soon as we got out of the lift we thought about turning round and leaving but there were few places to choose from that were open mid- afternoon. My king crab claw starter was hard, dense and tasteless and my king prawn satay had no peanut... More

We didn't have a clue where to eat on Stowell Street read a few reviews and then took the lift up to the Sky restaurant. The food was probably the best Chinese I have ever tasted. We went for the set menu at £19 each and there was loads. I ordered Chinese chicken curry for my main course - it... More

You have to take a lift directly from the street up two floors to the restaurant (toilets are on the first floor so stop off either on way up or way down!.) Doors open to a lobby area with direct access into a fairly large restaurant. Unsettling journey the first time only!! But worth it. The dim sum menu is... More

Looked for somewhere Chinese with Lamb on the menu, and discovered Sky in Stowell Street. Strange entry, a lift straight off the main street. Staff very friendly, decor basic but prices great! A lot of Chinese eating there, so it must be decent grub! Food was delivered piping hot and quickly, lovely presentation, and very, very tasty. Would highly recommend... More

Dim sum delight! Always fresh, always tasty. Always my first choice in Newcastle. Take your own atmosphere and company. Great! Thoroughly enjoyed again today.

On the basis that the best Chinese restaurants have a lot of Chinese customers, this must be one of the best in Newcastle. We particularly like to have Dim Sum here. [The restaurant is on the second floor but for those who find steps difficult there is a lift from the street]
