Excellent restaurant

I have been to this restaurant many times as I live nearby and have always really enjoyed my visits. The food is excellent - flavourful, hearty and not too spicy. The set starters and main courses are a good way to start if haven't had Persian food before. As others have said, the wine list is also... read more

We went here with friends, and were very impressed. We were unsure what to expect from "persian" cuisine, but need not have worried. The food is excellent, beautifully presented, and very reasonably priced for the quality. The wine list is good and very sensibly priced. You should give it a try. Everything we tried was new to us (apart from... More

The Taste of Persia is well located in Osbourne Road in Jesmond within easy walking distance of the many hotels in this vicinity. We were greeted with a warm welcome and service was good throughout the meal. Whilst the majority of menu items are meat-based, we liked the good choice of vegetarian food. Starters of vine leaves and an aubergine... More

My Mam and I ate at A Taste of Persia last night and had a fantastic dinner. We started with an aubergine, tomato dip and a hummus dip with bread basket. For my main I had the lamb skewers with feta salad and my Mam had a lamb stew with rice. Everything tasted delicious and we had so much food... More

Had an excellent early meal last night at Taste of Persia. All food was delicious and good sized portions (took some of my main course home in a 'doggy' bag and had for lunch today YUM!). Friendly staff and great service. The early bird special menu is such good value, but to be honest the standard prices are very reasonable.... More

Food was delicious and waiters very polite and helpful - I would recommend this restaurant to anyone - the joojeh kebab (chicken kebab) with saffron rice is out of this world.
