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.
We were a party of 5. The food was all delicious. The aubergine starter was particularly tasty. We also had desserts and the baklava was lovely - not too sweet which it often can be. The service was very good and the staff friendly and helpful.
Really tasty food and an exciting menu. Three of us dined off the normal evening menu and had three courses and soft drinks for £20 a head.
Very warm welcoming staff , the food was excellent.. we highly recommend this restaurant. I can see it becoming a regular place to eat for us
Enjoyed a wonderful meal at this lovely restaurant. Extremely welcoming and friendly and will definitely be making more regular visits. Thank you Taste of Persia.
Amazing food as always.. Brag will always be my favorite lamb! Mux apptizer is lovely but not a big fan of dolmeh (stuffed vine leaves). Frash flat bread is amazing, and rice with betries to die for
Excellent service, obliging, tasty food with lots of veggie options; well sourced wine and very reasonable prices for a city centre restaurant. Cosy and not too noisy setting for small and large groups.
Food perfectly cooked as always. I have visited many similar style restaurants and this comes out on top every time. We will be going back next time we fancy some Persian flavours.
Beautiful food! It was so good that we had to order a second plate of food! Lovely atmosphere and fantastic food at a reasonable price... Couldn't ask for much more!
Wonderful food, great ambience and attentive service. We are regulars at this restaurant with good reason. Have never had a bad experience here. Food is unique-all freshly prepared.
The food was delicious, especially the hummus, it was probably the best I've tasted, very reasonably priced, the service was great, very nice atmosphere. will definitely return
