One thing is certain and that is no one can resist gourmet Asian food. There is something about those juicy dumplings that butter up your mouth with an explosion of pure bliss and soy sauce or stir fry noodles which always go down well after work. If you've forgotten to make dinner reservations and aren't a master chef, have a look at these scrumptious Asian dining options which will have you making a beeline for these restaurants once the clock turns 5 on Friday. So if you can't withstand the calls of sweet 'n' sour pork or Mongolian beef in black bean sauce any longer, visit these Asian restaurants in Newcastle for an oriental express.

Get ready to be transported to Asia for an unparalleled dining experience that represents Wollongong’s three best oriental restaurants to enjoy a banquet, fine dining and a la carte meals. Let us take you through these different restaurants which will offer up the great taste of Asia in every dish.

If you’re always on the prowl for fine dining Asian-style, the Fuku on Crown is sure to not disappoint. Featuring a feast of contemporary and traditional Japanese meals, create your own banquet of oriental goodness which is far from the regular spring rolls and fried rice. This restaurant is the hybrid of Japanese and Chinese meals which will entice all of your senses as you split those chopsticks and attempt to look like a natural. A popular lunch special is the chicken Katsudon curry which is not only tasty but filling for dinner. If you feel like being a bit more adventurous then we suggest ordering dried Bonito flake-crusted tofu to get the meal started.
