A visit to Oma's Kitchen will prompt several questions. Chief among these will be "when can I come back" & "how is it possible for pork knuckle to taste this good"? Other questions you'll probably want to ask are "can I have more" & "how have I survived on earth this long without eating at Oma's Kitchen"? I dined here... More

Yummy cakes for morning tea and good coffee, service was cheery and prompt. The food based on family held recipes from grandma in Germany so it is authentic and very enjoyable with very generous serves.

Their statement "Best German food outside Germany" is very true. The restraint atmosphere is great, the service and food is great, it is moderately expensive but worth it. Our party of four had different meals and all A1

Okay so this is a German restaurant/ coffe shop/ take away place. Food is Yum Ciffe was great and I had my first large proper pretzel. Two boys had the German sausage on a roll and enjoyed. Took some shortbread back home for my hubby. Everyone was happy.

They seriously make good cakes, tried their Bavarian apple strudel and also ordered their cheese cake with sultana. Love them both! Add mocha frape just great for 39C Newcastle.

Great sharing platters. We highly recommend the 'Main Platter' with the best of everything included. Lovely service and great value. We'll be back. (Can we please have the recipe for the red cabbage).

With the increase in Das Hund Haus outlets in Newcastle, it is nice to be able to enjoy German fare that is tasty and moderately priced. The range is limited but it is a café not a restaurant, although fully licensed with German beer on tap. The food was lovely and the service great. I would go again.

Excellent service and the quality and authenticity of the German meals was amazing. Have attended Oma's many times for lunch and dinner, and everything on the menu has always been divine. Highly recommend trying their home-made short bread.

Thank Alexbbb
