“Go Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The other reviewers are right; the atmosphere of this little Iranian restaurant just on the outskirts of the city center doesn't do it justice. The menu is full of tasty dishes that come with assorted grilled meats and crispy salads full of mint, lemon, lettuce and tomatoes. The atmosphere is cozy with only 5-6 tables, and the owner/chef is one of the nicest Iranian/Newcastle people you will ever meet. So yes, go there.

“Superb - the most unlikely but enjoyable meals I've had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We were torn between this place and a couple of high priced steak & grill places but what a fantastic choice!!! Not in the greatest of areas and to be honest I turned my nose up a little, even said 'should we try somewhere else' but what a meal! Went for meal for 2 (£20) the best marinated chicken kebabs I've eaten. Forget all the high price small portion meals it's all about this place very friendly and passionate staff

“Don't judge a book by it's cover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

This corner cafe is mid-way up Westgate Road in the middle of all the motor bike shops. It was a bank holiday when I visited so parking wasn't a problem. I don't know what it would be like during the week.

It appears to be open when everywhere else is closed.

This is not fine dining but a small unprepossessing cafe which does the standard English fare but with a daily Persian dish also available.

The staff all spoke, were friendly, explained things and I found the whole experience (and the cross range of fellow punters) enjoyable and would recommend to anyone who isn't fazed by eating in a cafe.

It makes you wonder why they don't change the emphasis at night by having a few window blinds and candles on the tables as they would definitely attract a separate evening trade by concentrating on the Persian dishes.

Different in a pleasant way and I bet they don't even realise how well they are rated on TA.

“Tenderest lamb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Found this place on TA and when visiting the area and had to give it a try.
We had a mixed plate of starters,mixed salad, kobedeh and the lamb special.
The dishes served with really nice flat breads.
The special lamb was a particular hit, extremely tender and served with the most deliciously flavored rice.
Great value and service.
