About us

“To the ruler, the people are heaven; to people, food is heaven” (Old Chinese Proverb)

Our great story

The Imperial in Gateshead offers diners a chance to experience authentic Cantonese dishes without the fine dining price tag. Located on Durham Road, we are accessible to all. With our Oriental interior and authentic recipes, diners will be transported to a mini China in the heart of the North East.

All of our dishes are made from the freshest ingredients so our diners can experience food like never before. We have designed extensive set menus and banquet options so you can taste and try as many flavours as you want and our dedicated front of house staff will be more than happy to offer guidance when it comes to selecting dishes.

Cantonese Cuisine

We pride ourselves in the range of food we offer. We have anything from a light lunch to a scrumptious banquet, all with extensive vegetarian options!
