New tastes to try

As we reunite about 4 times per year we decided to visit somewhere new and one of us suggested the Reza. We were not disappointed. It is Persian/Iranian, tastes we have not tried before. Two had a lamb dish and one chicken. The tastes were perfect with just a hint of spice and the rice decorated... read more

A great little restaurant doing traditional Iranian food. Can highly recommend. Doing traditional beautiful kebabs for those less unadventurous, and all sorts with pomegranates etc with the most adventurous. All tastes catered for.

I visited with a colleague one midweek evening. It was very quiet and so lacked atmosphere. The waitress was efficient but not particularly attentive considering how few tables were occupied. We had starters and main courses from the extensive menu. I found the food a little bland but it was well cooked and of good quality. With drinks our bill... More

Smiling welcoming waitress, food came at right time, lovely food (one of those meals where you wish you'd had everyone's meal). Quiet, pleasant ambience - I must come again soon. Extremely good value - half the price of a previous meal in Newcastle.

What a lovely waitress served us, we felt very welcomed. She was genuinely interested in knowing what we thought of the dishes we chose. The value for the food was extremely good and if you are looking for something a bit different, this is an excellent place to go. The flavours were delicious.

its the average type of Persian restaurants a bit on the pricey range but it has all the variety of Persian food needed,the atmosphere is good and so is the staff.it needs to improve its taste for this price but still i would recommend it.

We went on a Friday night. There were two large groups, which meant it was pretty busy. The staff were full of smiles and very friendly. Very much enjoyed the food. Lots of different aubergine dishes available for starters. I particularly enjoyed the Persian casserole (I forget its name) - the lamb was so tender it fell to bits.

We went here on the advice of trip advisor and it lived up to expectations. An excellent meal, very reasonably priced. It tasted just like the real thing. The place was busy and there was only one person serving so the service was a bit slow, but definitely worth it.

The food was delicious, especially the aubergine dip. We enjoyed it so much we came back two nights later. Friendly and quiet. Alcohol is available, and the service was superb.

Visited the Reza for the second time and really enjoyed our food. Four of us shared a combi stater witch was served with warm flat breads - everyone agreed that is was very tasty. We all chose different mains including lamb, stews and chicken kebabs and everyone cleared their plates. The Reza manage to serve excellent rices dishes flavoured with... More
