About Sapphire Indian Restaurant

Fulfilling cravings for tantalising spices, Sapphire Indian Restaurant on Glebe Road in Merewether has a loyal local following. This light and bright corner venue greets guests with elegantly set tables, stunning pendent globes casting a soft glow and large glass windows allowing the outside world to pass by. Take a seat and peruse an innovative menu including vegetarian and share platter options; perhaps embark on a culinary adventure with a starter of marinated lamb cutlets, skewered and grilled in the tandoor. Move on to mains such as hot and fiery beef vindaloo with sides of saffron rice, garlic naan and papadums, or Goan fish curry with ling fillets, a touch of coconut milk, basmati rice and wholemeal roti; cool things down with a delicious dessert of gulab jamun and mango kulfi.

Best restaurant in Newcastle



If your tastebuds want a treat of "Authentic Indian cuisine" and yearn for finesse in delightful flavours then Sapphire in Merewether (Newcastle) should be on your list. This new entrant has the potential, recipe and vibes to give majority of Indian Restaurants across Australia a run for their money. I believe that the culinary skills of chef are well complemeted by good food presentation, appealing ambience and matching service. All the best Team @ Sapphire! Couple from Melbourne.
