Located on the first level of the Gateshead Metrocentre the Buffet King is a family friendly restaurant offering a huge selection of authentic dishes from across Asia.
We take pride in the range and quality of our dishes and also offer delicious desserts and ice cream, coffee/tea and a fully stocked bar, all served by our friendly and dedicated staff.

From May 17, 2021, BuffetKing at the Metrocentre will reopen with a Bento service until normal buffet can recommence on July 19st.
The Oriental Bento is our newest service innovation and follows a centuries old Japanese tradition of complete multi course meals in a single large compartmentalised box.
Bento offers you numerous selections, ample portions and authentic taste while adhering to social distancing regulations and ethically reducing food waste.
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.
