Went here with my Mum for lunch today and we were so impressed with the food and also the friendliness of the staff. We had a selection of starters and they were all so delicious and fresh. Try the grilled aubergine dip! The main course of chicken with sour cherries was amazing. I used to live with an Iranian flatmate... More

Absolutely spot on. Very good value. Our mains were £7 each which for Newcastle is excellent. Absolutely delicious too. We are both vegan and asked the lovely waitress about our potential food and were pleased to discover that most of the vegetarian options were accidentally vegan too. Huge portions and drinks reasonable prices too Will go back here.

A delightful lunch of chicken cooked with saffron, fries (not the ubiquitous chip but a thin, delicious French fries style potato) salad and yogurt with walnuts which was delicious. The salad dressing wasn't that nice but the salad was nice. The waitress was attentive and charming. Hardly anybody in but we didn't care. Nice Iranian music and not too loud.

Persian, well what to expect, chicken and minced lamb kebabs, great, succulent and tasty. Chanced upon this place during an evening stroll around Newcastle, if you like to try something different then this place is for you. Highly recommended.

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 with Iranian berries was... 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
