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.

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.
