“Absolutely define food, service and decor”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

My second visit and looking forward to my next. On both occasions I have had the degustation menu, both times different and amazing taste and presentation. In particular the crystal bay prawns, eye fillet and the last course of desert desert was amazing. The service is perfect. There is nothing I could fault about my evening here. We are so lucky to have this restaurant in Newcastle.

“Belated HUGE Thanks”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Busy life and we put off smaller but important things. We had our post wedding dinner here last year with our small gathering of family and friends filling the whole special small space. We were treated as honoured dear friends, everything was utterly perfect from the start of planning with Suzie to end of amazing evening of sensational food by Beau and the kitchen team. Our guests still talk about it months later and we'll be back for our anniversary dinner this year. They just get everything right to have you leave with that "fantastic evening" spring in your step! Newcastle is proud to boast of you Subo... all the best from Kate and Dino Consalvo

“Perfection”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

This restaurant is in a class all of its own. if you do nothing else when you visit Newcastle try to book in here, sadly for you,it maybe very hard to get in, those of us who live here know it is in a class of its own.
The food is to die for, the service is fantastic , not only did the waitress catherine, remember my husband drinks Bourbon and Coke without ice after our first visit but the waitresss also remembered after our second visit that he likes Makers Mark, a small detail perhaps, but it is small details which separates restaurants from good to fantastic. The same level to detail is displayed by the chef. fantastic mixture of flavours which make a perfection of taste.
Interesting, different and certainly impossible to create at home.
We have eaten at many of the 3 star michelin restaurants and this restaurant in flavour excitement equals them.
Just a pity that everyone else has discovered this restaurant so we have to book too far in advance to be able to eat there every time we visit Newcastle.
GO.

“Second time around, still superb!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

This time we tried the tasting (degustation) menu consisting of 5 courses. Starting with a warmed prawn salad, then deboned chicken wings, followed by melt-in-the-mouth beef, and finishing with a cleansing sorbet and vanilla custard with dates. These are all my words, the actual descriptions are much prettier to match the sublime excellence of the dishes.
As before the service was crisp but welcoming and friendly.
Subo is easily as good as the top restaurants in Sydney, and better than many of them. This being the case it's no small wonder Subo sits comfortably in the middle of the industrial metropolis that once was the 'steel city'.

“Amazing”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Dined here last night with friends and had an amazing night.
The service is very attentive yet not obtrusive. The waitstaff explain each course in detail which is a nice touch.
The $75 set 5 course menu offered a nice selection in regards to different flavours.
The highlight is most definitely the food, absolutely beautiful presentation and the flavours were devine.
We all left full and satisfied.
Will definitely return, thank you
