Decide to meet hubby for lunch on a Friday.
In arrival the restaurant was empty we where first table to arrive.
Order was taken promptly and other diners began to arrive.
Drinks arrived pretty quickly no complaints.
We waited 15 mins for starters which was fine.
After a further 45 mins of waiting and no main course s and diners who arrived after us receiving main courses and numerous tables at that !!!
My lunch break was over, we complained to the manager who seemed not bothered!!! He did not charge for food we had not had what we did have what a joke!!!
We walked out disappointed/ hungry and angry
We have ate here before with quick express service and good food it appears hitty missy. With a manager who doesn’t care about customer service oh and clearing tables is beneath him, as 10 times he walked past dirty tables we counted!!! As we waited for the non arriving food .

Very nice dinner here recently! Enjoyed a delicious starter of Squid which was lovely and fresh. For main I did enjoy the satay chicken with coconut rice. The other people I had dinner with really enjoyed theirs too. There is a good choice of mainly Thai, Chinese & Japanese so it's a really good place to go with a group of people as it caters to different tastes. Service was attentive without being overbearing. One thing I would mention is that is on the slightly pricey side, however this is in keeping with other restaurants in Tynemouth really. They do have a good value lunch offer however which I've sampled before and by the looks of it they don't cut the portion sizes like a lot of places do for offers.

Overall I would highly recommend this place!
