Originating approximately 3000 years ago, Persian cuisine is filled with a rich and colourful history influencing cooking from ancient Roman to Greek to Indian and many Muslim cuisines as well. Paying homage to this wonderful cuisine, is Newcastle restaurant A Taste of Persia. With two locations in the city, their Jesmond location is chic, stylish and one of the most welcoming spots in town. You’ll find decadent dishes brimming with saffron, herbs, fruits and nuts based on the traditions of combining hot and cold dishes together to create a balanced and wholesome meal. Located on Osborne Road, this Middle Eastern haven is one of the best around and is well-worth a look.
Another superb meal at the Jesmond Taste of Persia. Excellent staff, friendly and helpful. Beautifully prepared food and extremely reasonable prices. We have been here four or five times now and it is consistently excellent. We will be back. Thank you.
There is a wide range of stews or grills to choose from .All the dishes we chose were delicious and well presented .The seating/table were comfortable and the staff friendly and attentive without being fussy.
Great food good price great service will be visiting again
Excellent restaurant. Good food at relatively cheap prices. Good service. Really enjoyed our repeat visit. Really good service too. Good selection throughout the menu. Well done!
Really interesting food. Not spicy in the sense of hot at all, to the relief of one of us. We had the two or three course early evening menu, which we thought amazing value for money. The lamb in our two (different) lamb stews was excellent, very tender as well as tasty, and all elements of the meal met the same high standards. We also thought the room very pleasant, with a good amount of space between tables compared with many places. There are a number of steps up to the front door, but it looked to us as if there is ramp/disabled access through the foyer of the flats behind....check with the restaurant if you need this.
Lovely people, lovely food, lovely place - mixed breads and olives to start with chicken, lamb and rice to follow - first time we have been - definitely going back to explore the menu further
Excellent food and great value for money, lovely service. Very polite and helpful, did not wait long for food, ordered starters, sides and mains all together. Was like a Persian banquet. Highly recommended.
