who we are

Award winning Asian tapas, cool beats and a beautiful, quirky art filled space.

Buddh Beat is the new sister restaurant to River Beat Gateshead offering a taste tour of Asian cuisine with a local conscience.
Situated in a relaxed, urban, basement setting that emanates style, we’ve created a place that we would love to visit. Our versatile mix of spaces are as fulfilling and creative as our food.
Buddha Beat speaks for itself with it’s decor and some of the best art and beats around, a place where memories are made and flavours shared.
Whether you’re looking for a smaller semi private room, a space for large events or just want to chill in the laid back atmosphere of our lounge with a large glass of Vino, an Asian Beer or a pint of our Buddha Pilsner; a local collab with Vaux Brewery, we’ve got you covered.
Great customer service is our bread and butter, so we thought you’d like to meet some of the people that make it all happen.
