We were only visiting Newcastle and were after some good Asian food in Chinatown. We chose this restaurant as it seemed quite busy and menu was not standard Chinese directed to western palate.
Could not get a seat straight away but they sat us at the bar and took our drinks and starters order and made us feel welcome. The friendly manager(?) also asked us what type of food we like so he could make some recommendations.
We were sat within 10 min. The food he recommended was amazing. We even had a dish that was not on the menu. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive but to the right level that allowed us to enjoy our food.
The manager and waitresses also ensured we enjoyed our food at the end of our meal and made us feel very looked after. The food was reasonably priced and amazing!! If we lived here we would definitely come regularly.
I don't often feel the urge to write reviews but when it's this good I like to pass on the tip!

We have been a few times with my friends in this place and have to say it's always been good. Once we have chosen the wrong dish which wasn't for our taste but it happens. the food and service is still lovely. It opens until 1 o'clock so it's perfect for us on Sunday nights. The manager is really trying to keep this place going. and he's very friendly with all the other staff. A bit more atmosphere and it'd be a perfect place. See you next Sunday.

Tried this restaurant during the restaurant week offer. A very warm welcome was given by the really friendly staff.

First the slight negative. The wine list is very short. 3 bottles of white, red, rose. Chose a white...none in stock. Chose an alternative.

After that it improved. The starters were great. Very tasty. Main courses good, but the beef wax a little fatty which was a bit disappointing as it detracted from the otherwise good quality.

A strong point here is the friendly, helpful, staff who are keen to talk through the dishes.

This restaurant is going to be one of the best malaysian restaurant that you could found in city centre. The food is nice and people is helpful, and most importantly, the food is spicy!
