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.
The food was great and there was loads of it. The staff are brilliant - very friendly and efficient. Overall we had an excellent evening - thank you to everyone there.
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
Before I booked my table for 6, I checked the restaurant feed back comments ...which were all very positive and I have to say that they were all correct😀.Excellent service, tasty food and very friendly, which all led to a great night out.

Greeted at entrance by staff who were very attentive throughout. Meal was excellent, atmosphere relaxed. I hadn't been for a long time but will make sure I put it back on my list of good places in Newcastle to eat.
The staff made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to provide a birthday cake for my mum's 70th birthday. The food was very good and we had a very pleasant visit. Thank you.
Excellent food and service. Very flexible in changing set menu dishes to suit individual customers. Food arrived quickly, but time was given between courses to relax and let food settle. Brilliant all round.
