My partner and I have enjoyed Talulah for years. So much so we took my husband's sister there today for her birthday. What a disappointment. Gone is the spanner crab pasta and five spiced squid. In its place, burgers, quinoa and lots of lentils. My sister in law (birthday girl) struggled to pick a dish and settled on a chickpea... More

We went for an impromptu dinner and couldn't get in to our "usual" restaurants so we tried Talulah- absolutely AMAZING and we will go here next time instead of the others

I came across the breakfast menu a few weeks back while dining in for coffee and couldn't wait to come back to test it out. The only problem is what to choose! All three of us thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts. Non standard menu with a wide variety of options, focussed on fresh produce and well thought out flavours. Can't wait... More

Mediterranean-middle eastern/ Australian mix! Great combination of textures and flavours. Friendly and very professional service. Our meals were served rather quickly. The place has an interesting ambience. Nice decor, background music. 5/5

Made a booking at Talulah's for last Saturday Night for 4 people. After having a drink over the road at the Junction Hotel we arrived for the staff to tell us that he couldn't find a booking for us. He asked us to wait in the lounge area & he would check things out. By the way he spoke I... More

Have been back to Talulah many times now and would consider it one of the best places in Newcastle for breakfast lunch or dinner. The menu changes enough that you never get tired of the food, and the food itself is beautifully presented, local where possible and just so delicious. Always has a unique little quirk which takes it up... More

We loved this place. It was packed and we only had to wait for 5 minutes on the lounge. The food came out quickly and there was a very good selection of healthy and gluten free options. The atmosphere is great with lots of funky things to look at. I enjoyed reading a Frankie magazine while we waited!

Visited Talulah's for lunch with a business associate on the recommendation of another friend. On arrival there weren't many people in the restaurant, a good sign that service should be quick. Menu's arrived promptly and orders were taken soon after, and then, we waited, and waited some more. After attempting to flag down one of only two wait staff we... More

Have been for breakfast but tried for dinner for the first time. Food was excellent, although like anywhere decent in Newcastle an expensive meal when you have entree, main and wine. Service was average, pleasant staff but they were slow. Took 20 mins just to get a menu and hour before we saw the entree. Not good enough service for... More
