About King Neptune

Neptune is god of the seas in ancient Greek mythology, and King Neptune is the god of Chinese seafood in the pantheon of Newcastle restaurants. Not surprisingly, King Neptune lives right in the heart of Chinatown, along Stowell Street to the west of the city centre, standing defiant among a host of other options for Asian eating. Whether you book for the early evening special menu, a discount lunch or a lavish banquet, or simply want to peruse the a la carte menu, it’s clear that King Neptune’s specialty is the bounty that the ocean offers up, prepared mainly in the Chinese regional Pekinese style.

This restaurant has to be my favourite. The staff are always friendly, even if a busy time such as our last visit, and nothing is ever too much for them. The food is always lovely - even the fussiest member of the family enjoys visiting for a meal... I would advise anyone to give the King Neptune a visit - it will be the start of a lasting relationship
