Used to be one of the best in Newcastle bur currently closed down. It would seem the Stowell Street where the bulk of the chinese restaurants are located is losing its standing as the hub of fine food and dining

We went here at a day out in Newcastle.The interior is very beautiful and the staff served us very swiflty. I had the King Prawn chow mein dish with green peppers and black bean sauce, which was absolutely delicious. I certainly recommend this restaurant.

Newcastle's Mandarin Restaurant is easy to spot from the street, being colourfully fronted with greens, reds and gold in traditional Chinese style. The colours continue inside, creating a relaxed atmosphere of authenticity in which to enjoy your meal. As well as offering pre and post-theatre dinners, the Mandarin also has its famous banquets that offer dishes such as lamb with ginger and spring onions, king prawns in black bean sauce chilli and garlic fish - all for a fixed price; the Jade banquet costs £15 per person. The Mandarin uses fresh ingredients and is very popular locally.
