Arrived early 5pm were the only people in the restaurant. Were made very welcome shown to our table left to browse the menu and offered drinks. Ordered and the food was served fairly speedily. Was plentiful and very tasty could have been a little spicier for me maybe a side sauce, but i didn't ask. Will definitely go back really... More

Amazing food. Visited early Tuesday night, was quiet. Service was excellent and food even better. The chicken moist and flavoursome, the lamb dishes tender. The flavours are great and the food isn't over salted.

We popped in here for a quick weekday lunch, as we were nearby and had favourable reviews on TA. We had excellent service (though we were the only ones in for most of our meal) and the food arrived promptly. It was delicious, personally recommending the aubergine dip and the Shirin Polo, which comes with a wonderful orange and pistachio... More

Some of the best rice I have tasted. Absolutely lovely food and the price is really reasonable. Got two starters, two mains and a bottle of wine for £44.

We popped in here in the early evening before going to a show at the Tyne Theatre. We've seen this restaurant before and meant to try it but always ended up going elsewhere because we weren't familiar with Persian food. We needn't have worried, the menus are very detailed and explanatory and the staff are super-friendly and helpful. We plumbed... More

I have used this restaurant frequently over the years, it's a special place for those special occasions, the food is beyond reproach, the staff are excellent, to those who are new to the place, the 'distance shown' to new customers is 'respect' and nothing else, once you are known the chef and his wife as as warm and welcoming as...

We had just arrived in town and were looking for some place to have dinner, walked by, looked at the menu and decided to go back after the pub. Great decision! It is one of the best, tastiest meals we've had on our many visits to Newcastle. Will definitely go back next time.

This is our second visit to this lovely restaurant. If we lived in Newcastle we would be regulars for sure. The restaurant is smartly decorated, and the lady who greets and serves you is so welcoming and cheerful. There is a good range of food to choose from but we chose hummus for starter which was delicious. We then shared... More

We went for the lunch special. Kebab, naan and humous. Simply delicious. Atmosphere could be better but staff member was quite friendly.

Good service, lovely staff and fantastic food. I was wary the first time as I didn't recognize anything on the menu, but just decide if you want meat or vegetarian and pick one - it will be lovely! Go on, give it a try. :-)
