The Bigg Market is Newcastle’s premier nightlife destination, with a myriad of meat markets to choose from, comically hot curries and kebabs on every street corner. Redwood Grill is holding up the Persian end of the bargain, representing their cuisine in this part of Newcastle city centre, with grilled meats, mezzes and a huge array of house specials that are sure to delight anyone who enters their doors. They are easy to reach – wander round from Newcastle Central or down from Monument Metro – and they offer a charcoal grill, a wood-fired oven and a menu that makes the most of the both of them. Turn up and eat your fill of burgers, pizzas, Persian kebabs and salads – just remember to book your table ahead of time.
The food was good but the atmosphere was poor as there was no one in apart from us. Plus it was more like a cafe than a restaurant.
Early sitting (18:30), only 1 other table of customers, strange decor for a Persian restaurant, Caribbean music and Coronation Street playing, staff were polite but waiter didn't take his coat off and had to 'nip out for another job' half way through service. Strangely. he also advised against a rare steak which was a little off putting for my friend which she ordered anyway because that's how she likes them. Starters were lovely as was the complimentary salads but the steak wasn't fillet and my friends tasted strange (although in fairness this may have just been the flavourings), there was a choice of about 8 desserts on the menu but they only had 2 available and we didn't want either. we were offered a free drink to compensate which we declined but overall a disappointing experience.
The restaurant was nice and clean, and the food tasty! What I like most was the fact that you could see where the food is cooked, and that they've started preparing it right after placing the order, so everything was fresh. Overall, good service and it's worth giving it a try at least once.
