At the core of any great Chinese Restaurant, there is a desire to develop and provide a truly extraordinary dining experience. At Buffet King Metro, the courses are built on seasonal properties, utilizing only the freshest, most delicious ingredients available. Our atmosphere is traditional but unique, and each dish is composed to ensure a bold yet simplistic culinary adventure.

Since 2000, we’ve sought and succeeded to revolutionize the way people eat food in the Metrocentre area. From the classics to the innovative, we’ve got it all. Join us. 



Take a break from the bustle of the UK’s biggest shopping and leisure complex, the Metrocentre, and relax in comfort at the Buffet King oriental restaurant.

Since 2008 the Buffet King has been popular for Chinese dining away from the city and close to Newcastles’s Gateshead and surrounding areas. 

Serving over 50 authentic oriental and south east asian dishes prepared by real Chinese chefs, the Buffet King boasts friendly staff and tasty food that will fill your belly without breaking your wallet. 

Meet your mates, feed the family or have a business meeting, Buffet King offers modern relaxed surroundings with great service, fragrant coffee, full bar and clean washrooms, all without the hassle of city parking charges.

So pop in and visit us. Sample numerous dishes for around the same price as a single dish from a high street restaurant or take away, with full table service and bar to boot. Put simply, it’s some of the best value (and tasting!) dining out around.

The Buffet King oriental family restaurant is located near the Odeon Cinemas, upstairs in the Yellow Mall area of the Metrocentre. If you are near Primark, The Lego store, JD sports or Starbucks then we are just around the corner and open from 11am to 7:30pm every day.

We look forward to your visit.
