Newcastle’s first restaurant focusing on Sichuan cuisine, Hei Hei is bringing the heat to adventurous diners from across the city. Far from your average Chinese restaurant, Hei Hei offers unique options that are sure to tantalise the taste buds and reignite your passion for authentic Asian dining. Found along Dean Street in the city centre and just steps from Tyne Bridge, Hei Hei is a top choice for Chinese food that you simply won’t find anywhere else in town.
Loved it! Shall be returning when next in Newcastle. Thanks.
Superb food and amazing price! Well worth a visit. Best Cantonese in town.
Service and food was delicious. Perfect atmosphere. I have not tasted such delicious salt and pepper squid before. Ideally should have more than one toilet. Had to queue up to use when I first arrived.
Hei Hei is bringing the heat to Newcastle’s food lovers, slinging out spicy Sichuan dishes and offering some of the friendliest service in town. At this stylish Chinese restaurant in the city centre you’ll enjoy traditional specialities in an environment that’s chic and elegant. With dim lighting alongside black leather furniture, dark red walls and furnishings, Hei Hei on Dean Street features a particularly romantic vibe that’s ideal for a first date or special anniversary dinner.
First timers at Hei Hei in Newcastle’s city centre will be pleased to know that the dishes on the menu are totally different from what’s usually available in local Chinese restaurants, and are served family-style so that you can enjoy dining communally as is customary in China. We recommend ordering from one of the set menus for two which include a starter, main, and and a side of stir-fried pakchoi, shredded potato or the Hei Hei’s special fried rice – choose from mains like sizzling beef in black pepper wine sauce, crispy aromatic lamb in Peking garlic sauce or the vegetarian deep-fried bean curd in fruity hot sauce. Of course, you could go a la carte and choose from seafood, pork, beef, lamb or tofu dishes. If you don’t want your dish too spicy, simply ask your server to let the chef know – the folks at Hei Hei are happy to modify your selection to your liking. Book ahead to secure a table!
