I regularly visit this fine restaurant with friends and family. the food is always top class. they have a lunchtime special which is excellent value for money. the staff are pleasant, and the service is always top class. only reason I haven't given it an excellent is the terrible 'Crispy Duck' that the restaurant has started plating. even on complaining...

The stairs is the only problem, the food is always very good, I used to get the banquet, its been a while since ive been but only because I have not been for a Chinese meal lately, well worth the money.

Just noticed people are writing about Restaurant on Durham Road and not Takeaway on Old Durham Road. So reviews may be incorrect Re Takeaway I think it has gone downhill since I started going many years ago but found the food to be reasonable. Deliveries are always prompt and the guy is always friendly and polite.

I have used this Chinese for years. The food is decent and the standard is fairly consistent. The prices are reasonable. It is a good option for those night wen you can't be bothered to cook.

you really can't go wrong if you want a chinese restaurant in the gateshead area its as good as any in newcastle and better than most only down side is the flight of stairs to enter quiet steep so not for the frail or disabled
