Chicken hot pot to watery no flavour, tum yum mussels to much sugar. Paul's used to be the trade mark of good Asian, now it's the worst and at a premium price.

The best Asian food in Newcastle by a country mile. Always packed and their take away at the back is also packed. Never had a bad dish here and they've got the awards on the wall to prove it

The best Chinese food I can remember eating. Honey king prawns were very crunchy and extremely fresh. Could not stop eating the bbq pork and the ginger beef. As the food was of such quantity we decided to preserve the lemon chicken for home later.

Overcharged me, Said that the online menu was different from the one in store. Food wasn't even worth it. Worst experience and rude staff!
