Red Mezze Restaurant Turkish Food At Its Best

Share a meal with family and friends in traditional Turkish style at Red Mezze. Red Mezze Restaurant Turkish owner, Murat, has many happy memories of big family meals in the hot sun, where lunch would go on till after dark, and turn into a lively and welcoming party for all to join in.

Red Mezze, food This spirit of fine Restaurant Turkish food, a family atmosphere and a warm welcome make this a superb place to experience gorgeous traditional dishes in a North East Turkish restaurant.

Here in this brilliant, relaxed and happy family friendly atmosphere you can taste the finest meals that will make you want to come back time and time again. Red Mezze has in fact the distinction of being the only Newcastle Turkish Restaurant.

Based in the refined Georgian glory of Leazes Square in Newcastle, Red Mezze is the only true restaurant Turkish dining experience in the area, and will give you a very tasty introduction to the gourmet cuisine of this exciting and charismatic country.

Family and friends are at the heart of every Restaurant Turkish meal, where the sharing of food and discussion around the table brings people closer together.

It was the owners dream to bring this inclusive attitude and sharing experience to the North East, as it was one he had enjoyed so much as a boy. To be able to bring this sense of joy and wellbeing to everyone here in Newcastle is an achievement that goes down very well with all Red Mezze customers.

Turkish food is very healthy, and is always made from good fresh ingredients. The restaurant has an exceptionally wide and varied menu, taken from the best of traditional Turkish regional and national dishes. You can't fail to find lots of delicious things on the menu, with so much to choose from; plus with so many vegetarian and vegetable dishes, parents will find it a good way to introduce more of the five-a-day daily recommended portions of fruit and vegetables to children’s diets, and finger food is always greatly enjoyed by kids.

Be seduced by the rich colours and spectacularly exotic aromas of the dishes, and you will feel as though you have been transported from the grey skies of the north, to the warm and languorous Mediterranean.

All the superb cuts of prime meat served in Red Mezze Newcastle Turkish restaurant are Halal, and cooked over traditional wood charcoal barbeques. There are also many gorgeous traditional fish or vegetable dishes to tempt you in this lovely North East Turkish Restaurant.

Red Mezze, fine food

Mezze plates are the ideal way to sample many dishes at one time: Mezze actually means ‘tasty snack’ in English! Great to share with family, friends and loved ones, you can get a broad taste of Turkish cuisine from the many small dishes, without having to commit to one dish as a main meal.

This is ideal for first timers and children, as the range of mezze dishes at Red Mezze includes meat fish and vegetable dishes. You can choose from either a hot or a cold mezze menu, to fit your mood, time of day, and weather conditions.

The barbeque menu includes Shish dishes, which mean cooked on a skewer, and all the barbeque dishes are cooked in the traditional manner over wood charcoal. There are a selection of light snacks and lunches available till 4pm, which include delicious wraps, and the two-course lunch is great value at only £6.95, and includes two mezze and a main dish! Three course set meals are amazing and very easy on the pocket from just £9.95.
