“Favourite Indian in Newcastle ”

Surtaj Indian Restaurant

Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 November 2016 via mobile

I need my craving of Indian food satisfied at least once a week and I happen to have tried every curry house in the Hunter region and Surtaj is definitely my go to place.

Their butter chicken is one of the best I've had and I've eaten Indian food around Australia and the UK. My other favourites are the lamb vindaloo, saag paneer and the Bombay prawn curry. The chicken and cheese naan is divine. For entrees I have pretty much tried everything but my favourites are the tandoori chicken tikka and the keema samosa.

The service is always impeccable and the staff are wonderful. Definitely recommend a visit!

Was here recently with friends and I'll come back again. Following the closure of Indian Raj on Beaumont St Hamilton, I've now begun to frequent this place. Even though we arrived just after 9pm on a Friday, the service is great and the meals came out in a timely fashion. The ambience of the restaurant is pleasant and its location is quite central. I've rated it average to good because that's what it is. Some of the meals were very good, while some were average. Importantly none were bad.

I frequent here regularly. I am occasionally tempted by other Indian places but every time I do I walk away disappointed and return to the Surtaj to restore my faith in tasty Indian food.

Try the vindaloo for one of the greatest dishes ever.

We have been returning to this fine dining restaurant for >10 years and every occasion has been made memorable by the personal attention accorded by the hosts, Ramesh and Meera. The location is great and there is plenty of parking available. The ambience is bright and lively. The seating is relaxed and the music is soothing. The menu has got choices for people of all tastes and the quality and quantity of the serving is top notch. We will keep coming back.
