Nestled along Marlborough in Newcastle’s city centre, A Taste of Persia is paying homage to the rich and bountiful history of Persian cuisine. Steeped in culinary tradition, Persian cuisine offers an array of delicious ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ dishes, and at this stylish restaurant you’ll find options like shishlik of marinated lamb chops and grilled tomato, mahi mahi-tabeh of pan-fried sea bass marinated in saffron, lemon and mild spices and fesenjan Persian chicken cooked with pomegranate and walnut sauce, among many other delectable Middle Eastern dishes just begging to be sampled. So for some of the best fare in the city, booking a table at A Taste of Persia is highly recommended.
Very special restaurant and really tasty food using Persian culinary skills. Well worth a visit and widely appreciated by those in the know about the restaurant. Highly recommended. The owner demonstrates high standards from his team and he engaged with us throughout our dining experience. The food is prepared with great care and attention to detail. The fish tasted just wonderful and I can recall the saffron dusting the fish ever so lightly. The baklava was just wonderful with the rose flavour following the initial bite. Wow! Our taxi driver was also raving about the food on our journey home!
The food was wonderful and staff are really friendly. They even suggested a different side to better accompany my main course and wasn’t disappointed. You’ll struggle to find lamb as nice as this anywhere else
Delicious food and excellent service. The bread and hummus were better than any we had in the Middle East. Had one grill and one stew and both were extremely tasty. Also had Baklava and saffron ice cream and these were fabulous.
