Excellent food

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

There are two Persian restaurants in Newcastle and both are great, but this one is my favourite. The food is so delicious and I have tried a few dishes, but the fesenjan is so far my favourite. The menu offers a lot of choice, and if you've never had Persian food before it may be difficult to choose, but I... More

This restaurant is perfect, its not in the nicest area of newcastle, its not fancy inside, but thats whats great about it. You don't feel like you need to be formal! The food was so simple and beautiful, it was only a few flavours but really caught the essence of Persian food. It had good vegetarian options which is unusual... More

I've never felt the need to write a review before but along with others here I am perplexed as to why this restaurant had no more than 4 tables taken on a Saturday night. Best meal I've had out in a long time. The food was excellent, particularly tasty with very distinct and fresh flavours in each dish. Two starters,... More

Persian cuisine is one of my favourite. I have visited quite a lot of Iranian restaurant all over the world and I have to say that Reza is one of the best. And it is unpretentious and good value too. We had Kashk-e-Bademjan and Borani as starters, both delicious. As main course Sabz-e-Mahi (with salmon) and Juje Kebab, both very... More

We visited Reza on a Tuesday evening at around 6.15pm. This may not be peak time, but we the only ones in the restaurant and no-one else put in an appearance the whole time we were there! It's such a shame because the food is always gorgeous. My husband and I shared 3 starters for £10, vine leaves, kofteh (lamb... More
