Persian Cottage

Informal, warm Persian eatery offering kebabs, grilled meats, and more

Serving real homemade Persian cooking from koobideh to lamb shank, this is popular eatery located in the heart of Linthorpe Village.

There's always a warm welcome on offer from Mohsen and the team - there's no airs and graces at Persian Cottage, just homely surroundings and incredible food for all the family.

The restaurant has even been praised by Guardian food critic Jay Rayner, who described it as 'cracking' serving the 'rice of your dreams'.

After his 2019 visit, Mr Rayner wrote that “based on (his) long-held but quietly kept belief: you will rarely eat badly in a Middle Eastern grill house”.

“Even the mediocre ones are good. Which means that the good ones, like Persian Cottage, are cracking,” he continued.
