Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was looking at the menu when a couple came out saying how lovely it was, so decided to try for first time. We had the 3 course lunch each £14.90 we had Perkins style spare ribs. chicken and beef slices in house curry fried rice with a side of chips. 4 spring rolls. The spring rolls i would say was the best thing I eat. Curry was watery bland the curry had no taste chips were bland i would give it a 4 out of 10. The staff were really friendly very busy. I would not be going back in a hurry.

Well first time visiting King Neptune. I have been to alot of Chinese restaurants 🤣. This by far exceeded any expectations. They couldn't do enough for us. My 7 year old requested Lobster and because of the time of year they didn't have any. Which to me, shows they use fresh produce. They went out of their way to make an alternative with muscles and jumbo prawns for him..... everything we ordered was amazing and packed uo the rest to take home as it was too good to leave. The waitresses etc just made our night even better. We will definitely return when we are back in Newcastle. Absolute 10/10 for service and food

Absolutely brilliant food! I had visited today with my family to try their lunch menu, and i don’t regret one bit. As a northern family we do enjoy finding cheap food that’s also good and hearty and King Neptune did NOT disappoint. Their service was impeccable and we felt fully attended to at all times. The food was brilliant! and very cost effective. I had deep fried chicken in sweet and sour sauce and my taste buds were blessed, paired with a coca cola. I couldn’t recommend this place more and i think everyone should visit!!

Another great visit. It never lets us down and is a very comforting, homely restaurant which we will return to until we have a mediocre meal before trying others. It is best to go where you know you will have good eats. as I said , a great place to eat out, right in the middle of china town with friendly hosts. We opted for the set meal for 3 which consisted of soup, then duck , then 3 different main courses of which we asked for one of them to be changed to what we preferred which was not on the list, which was met with a positive yes instantly. Just great. The rice and prawn crackers, though not part of the main things in the meal were lovely also. All in all , we will be back. Pretty son actually. it is a very nice warming, slightly authentic old fashioned restaurant with great food.

This is our go to Chinese restaurant when visiting Newcastle. We had already booked a table over the phone a few week prior. When we arrived they couldn't find our booking. They eventually did, but I don't actually think they did - I think they just squeezed us in because they knew they'd made a mistake. There is plenty of choice on the menu. The prices are reasonable but there is a 10% service charge in December. The food was brought out quite quickly. They asked if we wanted chopsticks but we said cutlery was fine. They brought out our 5 years old daughter some chopsticks stuck together with an elastic band for her to try. She absolutely loved using them! The food was really good.

We had not been for a Chinese sit down for years so we thought we'd pay Stowell Street a visit before heading off to a comedy show. I have to say that the service was great, however, the food was bang average, which was a pity as this restaurant was the go to in the 90's. We had 2 King Prawn dishes, which you got plenty of and a starter of crispy aromatic duck (1/4). Although I enjoyed the duck (as I always do) it was unfortunately not crispy, the Mrs was therefore not too keen. The Szechuan and Black Pepper King Prawn was very bland and I mean bland, so overall, bang average. We were asked how the meal was to which we replied 'it was fine'. I know when I've had a very good meal, I'll make sure that the staff know how good it was but unfortunately not this time around. Perhaps my expectations were too high and that this restaurant is still the best (given the reviews) but I think that we'll stick to our local takeaway next time, half the price for double the taste.

Enjoyed as great meal in nice surroundings. Staff pleasant and attentive. Food top class would recommend Cantonese filet steak and sweet and sour king prawn. Not too pricey for city centre and definitely value for money. Would love to visit again!

Repeat review. Mam treated me to luncheon. And glad she did. Another winner. It’s becoming habitual now. No bells. Zero whistles. Just a nice lunch and friendly staff.

Good service and good food, plenty of choice. Mention it is for a birthday and our table was decorated and a banner on the wall. I have eaten here a number of times and always enjoy it.

Won’t be bothering to book here again. I booked for a party of 4, in the first available evening slot of 6pm. Turned up on time, only to be told they were busy sorting the table out. After several other excuses and a queue of other people waiting, we left at 6:25pm, with no table offered at that point in time. I went to the bar to inform one of the staff that we were leaving. She didn’t seem in the slightest bit bothered. Woeful customer service. Plenty of other great restaurants right next door, so they won’t get our custom again.

My wife and I visited Newcastle, the venue is ok’ish which could do with an update. We were seated to our table, the couple behind us were offered water, we weren’t, I think it was because they talked posher! At the end of the meal at 9.30pm we asked for the sweat menu and was advised the chef had gone home. I brought my unhappyness to the attention of the manager who said “what do you want me to do” Food ok, service ok, but management appalling ! I’ll never return!

I hadn't eaten there for 30 years, but it was still as good as it used to be. We had the set lunch, which was very nice and reasonably priced. The decor is a little dated, but the food and friendly service more than make up for it.

Got to say this was another good show by the King Neptune team. My mam kindly treated me to luncheon. Friendly welcome. Good service. Decent chicken and sweetcorn soups for starters and I went for lemon chicken with f/rice and mam went for a chicken and cashew stir fry, with rice which had been boiled. Coffees to end. Mam was thrilled with her main. Great! And I was quietly ecstatic with mine. The bill was a delight. Very happy to leave a decent tip. We’ll be back again.
