Unfortunately, I have to say what a bad experience I received at your restaurant this evening. This has been two consecutive experiences in the past month that disappoint me given the wonderful food and service received over the years. Having family in the restaurant industry...(including myself) for many years I understand the pressures although 2 1/2 hours to receive a meal is NOT okay and maybe you need to review your process internally when receiving online delivery.More

Driven past the restaurant many times, saying we must dine there and tonight we did. We were not disappointed with two lamb and one goat dishes plus naans. Excellent food at a reasonable price and would we return: yes, definitely so. Atmosphere is very good...but front of house service is average (don’t pass the wine in front of another customer please) and always check if the customer is happy, but otherwise, very good.More

An absolutely beautiful restaurant with incredible Indian food and really lovely staff. We’re from south west rocks here on a little visit for 3 days and would drive back JUST for this place. The food was really delicious highly recommend the chicken 65 entree (unreal)...and my partner loved the lamb cutlets. Butter chicken was so beautiful and the naan bread the best I’ve ever had. Lovely, lovely restaurant in all aspects. Do yourself a favour and visit, we’ll definitely be back!!!!More

Delicious food and well presented. Offering an extensive selection of food and good vegetarian options on the menu. Good service and great ambience. Its better to reach early or book a table. Will definitely visit again

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
