This is a beautiful little place - hubby and I come he often for our date night and have never had a bad time. They do get really busy so booking is best. We will continue to come, won't mention names, but there is a...restaurant in lambton that we used to think was the best in Newy, Sapphire's has definately over taken them!More

I recommended that some friends who are hospitality managers in a couple of high class establishments in Newcastle and Sydney, try the Sapphire. Their feedback to me in summary was: Service-Outstanding Food-Exceptional Range of dishes-An extensive range of vegetarian and vegan dishes available to complement...a very expansive menu. They were blown away with every aspect. I see the same every time I go there. One of the very best restaurants Newcastle has to offer. Well done to the entire team. Bruce CookMore

It was a quite nice experience at Sapphire having Nepalese and Indian cuisine. Some of the food items were really nice like Butter Chicken, goat biryani; while some of items were average. Staffs were friendly but not so hygiene (the one who took our order...was frequently touching hair and other parts of face). Overall the experience was nice.More

Returning customers, we had promised our little boy to take him for years. Food was beautiful as always and well resented. We had a trainee wait staff that made a few mistakes but everybody needs to start somewhere and the senior waitresses were prompt to...fix his mistakes. Lovely night.More

Came here for my first restaurant outing. I was blown away by the wonderful service when me and my friend walked in the door. The food was just incredible. I am vegan and there was lots of vegan options to choose from. The staff also...can make certain meals that aren’t vegan on the menu vegan friendly. I was blown away by the taste and nourishment of the food. I felt so full but so nourished when we left. I cannot wait to come back 1000 times more. Thank you for the lovely staff and amazing chefs for having us. :)More

The best authentic indian restaurant in Newcastle, Undoubtedly the best butter chicken ever served with personified service of the owner himself. Every time i am going up north from sydney this is on to-do list, Wether we talk about butter chicken,naan(chicken naan to be specific)...Or anything about this restaurant be it ambience,location, service its second to none. 5 stars always..More

The food is awesome If you eat in, the meals are huge! If you get take away the food containers are the smallest you can get so definitely eat in for value for money, not take away!
