This place is completely amazing. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The vindaloo is stunning and my partner loves the Bombay beef and the madras... amongst others. I have friends who request that I bring some of their food when visiting.There simply isn't better food that I have eaten anywhere in the world. When moving back to Australia after being overseas for a number of years this place was a significant factor in where I was going to live.

Between the bhatura to the paneer makhani, it's hard to pick the best of the unique dishes that stand out from other Indian restaurants in the area.Beyond those notably amazing dishes, every other dish you'd expect from such a restaurant is lovingly cooked and authentic.Surtaj is THE Indian restaurant in the hunger area, others don't begin to compare.

A great little quiet Indian restaurant in Newcastle. I've been here several times and absolutely love the meals. It's very underrated and definitely recommended. Better than all the other Indian restaurants in Newcastle!
