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.
lovely food, a lot of choice on the menu and the happy hour meal deal is worth it. good location in central jesmond. will definitely go back.
Great meal, as always. The food is always good and the staff are always friendly. Our party had a range of different foods from the menu . Chicken stew, sea bass and chicken and lamb skewers, all delicious. The baklava and pistachio and saffron ice cream were amazing!!. Well worth a visit.
Beautiful, happy, efficient, very background Persian music (relaxing) and most of all marvelous food and service. We have been 4 or 5 times and brought friends on all but one of these. Praise from all of them has been absolutely unanimous too.
