Welcoming venue, extensive variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Most are suitable for vegans, but check. Very reasonable prices. We went as a group but definitely go back.

Horrible staff service, would absolutely not recommend

Would i recommend this place? Absolutely not!!!!. It may just be the worse restaurant i have ever been to. Me and my bf booked a reservation yesterday. When we got there, there was a family of 7 who had showed up with no reservation and the staff was trying to get them seated, we watched as other staff walked by without speaking to us to ask whether or not we had a reservation. This other couple of 2 showed up behind us and the staff ignores us then goes to ask them if they had a reservation and they said no before they even spoke to me and my bf. It was so awkward and we probs should have left then. Fast forward we finally get seated after 15mins of standing outside while everyone with no reservation gets seated before us, then he gives us no menu while everyone else got menus as they were seated. After 15mins, with no one coming to our table i had to ask one of them if we can have a menu before we got one. Then again no one came to ask if we are ready to order for about 30mins. We were close to walking out. I had to alert staff again that we were ready to order, they took our order, drinks didnt come till an hour later, our starters came 40mins later, then i again had to alert staff about our main, the guy goes after we have been waiting 40mins for it (oh its already prepared, do you want to take it home?) Like no we have been sat here at the table 40mins, can you please serve it to us), so he brings it over then gives my bf something he did not order. What was painful to watch was how the staff isolated and discriminated against us all night, it took me to chase up everything before we got anyone coming to us. The staff would walk to tables around us asking if they have their meal, are they ok, how is the food, then me and my bf sat there with nothing, they just walk past us with angry faces like we have done something wrong.
Being black i am used to such ignorance but my bf could not believe something like that could happen in plain sight. If you are Caucasian and you like average tasting chinese food with pink uncooked chicken then id recommend this place, but if you black, stay away completely to avoid these death stares from unwelcoming staff and absolutely vulgar service!.

Very attentive

A full vegetarian menu which can be vegan upon request.
Staff were very attentive and understanding of my dietary requirements.
I most definitely recommend the kimchi fried rice (make sure to ask vegan) and the aubergine and green peppers with black bean sauce.

Pros: Vegetarian made vegan Upon request

Don't go

No vegan menu, and the staff were confused about what vegan is. The food I did get was bland and practically inedible.

Go elsewhere

Pros: None

Cons: Didn't understand vegan. Food bland.

Large vegetarian menu

A lot of the dishes are or can be made vegan - just ask and they’ll tell you which dishes are egg free. I had vegetable vermicelli noodles which were great and Kung po deep fried tofu

Best Newcastle Asian

We've always had great meals here. There is an extensive Vegetarian menu and as long if you state tbat uou don't want egg in anything they are happy to comply. Just check that the noodle dishes aren't made with egg noodles. The Singapore vermicelli is made with rice noodles - we always ask for no egg and extra cashews - and is very good. The Kung Po tofu is fantastic if you're a fan of firey! Also great are the Lo Han Tofu and the Aubergine and Peppers in Black Bean Sauce. Olong tea is lovely. Very resonably priced. By far the best choice in Chinatown if you're vegan.

Pros: Good number of choices, Resonably priced, Friendly staff

Cons: No dedicated vegan llisting, No vegan wine listed

no vegan options

I contacted the restaurant by message on Facebook and asked what there vegan options were. They said to come in and they would show us an allergen list but when I got there to and asked what they could do vegan I was told they had 1 meal, a mince and bean dish (mince pork) when I explained I don't eat animal products they said they could leave it out.

Cons: no vegan options

Authentic Asian food

Located in Chinatown I happened upon Amaysia one night after work and was surprised by the amount of tofu dishes available on the outside menu, so we decided to try it out and luckily we got a table, as it was very busy inside. When you walk in the decor is modern but not in a pretentious way and on offer they have a dedicated vegetarian menu with lots of dishes and mains available. However, none of these are labelled vegan so please ensure you state you are vegan before ordering, as a lot of the options contain egg. We did this and it was fine, although the staff did have to check with the chef. For starters we decided to order the salt and pepper tofu and the hot and sour soup to share. The salt and pepper tofu was delicious with lots of chillis on top, whilst the soup was excellent too and full of flavour. For mains we ordered the kung po deep fried tofu and deep fried tofu in satay sauce (£7.50 each) with rice to share. The satay and the kung po were very flavoursome with the tofu perfectly cooked. This was washed down with a refreshing iced grass jelly soya milk, which I would highly recommend if you have never tried grass jelly before. We had this all the time in Singapore. By far the best restaurant in Chinatown I have visited.

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Inexpensive, Nice decor and atmosphere

Cons: Serves meat, Some staff not educated, Must state vegan as not labelled
