Cuisine: Indian

It’s southern India via the northern beaches in this Newport gem. The owners hail from the south of the Subcontinent, so many of the dishes on the menu are what they grew up with. The decor is simple and unpretentious and it’s the sort of place you can easily get comfortable in. You could start with the restaurant’s namesake onion bhaji, spiced onion rings in a chickpea batter $6.90. For main, beef Malabar curry $18.90 is mild and sweet with coconut milk while chicken mangalore $17.90 will certainly add a bit of spice to your evening. A good selection of vegetarian dishes ranges from sizzling poondu mushrooms marinated in coriander and garlic $8.90 to baked eggplant with spiced potato, sultanas and cashews $14.90. Three banquet choices $27.90/$33.90/$39.90 ensure everyone has options.

Cuisine: Indian,Modern Australian

Wander upstairs from the Newport Arms Hotel and you’ll find this rather swanky split-level restaurant, which offers impressive 180-degree views of Pittwater all the way to Bayview and Ku-ring-gai National Park. The menu’s undergone a revamp in the past year with a focus on value for money, but you’ll still find the contemporary cuisine this place is famous for. Blue swimmer crab linguine $17/$25 gets a thumbs up (should that be claws up?) from us and confit pork belly $28 has the tiered textures of skin, meat and in-between goodness. A menu highlight is the three sharable mains, $46 each (serves two), of paella, barbecued seafood platter and a 500g chargrilled rib-eye — perfect for partners and groups. No fewer than seven pages of wines should keep you entertained.
