Located in Newcastle-upon-Tyne’s charming suburb of Jesmond, the Dean Hotel lies within a ten minute drive of the bustling North-eastern capital. Inside this regal white-fronted townhouse, the brand new Caspian Restaurant churns out an impressive array of Turkish and Persian delicacies. Named after the sea which sits in the heart of the Middle East, the Caspian Restaurant is guaranteed to offer first-time visitors an authentic taste of this part of the world.
Within a week of opening, the Caspain has received rave reviews from satisfied diners about their effervescent and passionate staff, as well as their mezzes, meat and vegetarian offerings. Whether you’re dining as a group to celebrate something special, or you’re just not in the mood for cooking your own tea after a long day at work, Caspian can provide you with a unique and unforgettable two or three-course meal.
Begin with a humus platter, a dish of tasty baked saksuka or authentic yaprak sarma, a traditional meat roll wrapped in cabbage leaves, originating from the Ottoman Empire. Main courses vary from the much-loved mixed grill, half-chicken, falafel, kofte and lamb kebab offerings, to the highly-recommended moussaka. All of this can be enjoyed in a simple yet comfortable dining atmosphere, completed perfectly stunning lamps, lanterns and decorative tiled walls, and of course, the well-stocked bar.
Jesmond’s vibrant thoroughfare of Osbourne Road acts as a superb alternative to Newcastle’s frenetic centre and is just two minutes stroll away from the hotel. The neighbourhood’s main road boasts tons of drinking establishments for those keen to whet their appetite before their delectable Turkish meal, or carry on afterwards.
Please Note: this tastecard offer is not available on bank holidays or special celebration days such as, but not limited to, Mother's Day, Father's Day and Valentine's Day.
