Red Mezze, restaurant Here at Red Mezze in Leazes Square you can experience all the subtle nuances and delicacies of Turkish cuisine, without having to travel.

If you want to taste the fragrant and varied dishes of this exotic and expansive country, then Red Mezze is for you. As the only Turkish Restaurant in Newcastle, we have an impressive menu of traditional and regional dishes from right across Turkey.

For your first experience of Turkish cuisine try a hot or cold mezze, which gives you a taste of many small dishes, to share with friends, family, and loved ones. Turkish food has great variety, and the dishes on the menu at Red Mezze reflect this eclectic nature, with Hala meat, fish and vegetable dishes. A mezze is great fun for all the family, especially children, who will love the finger food.

You can sample a Turkish breakfast, and lots of other snacks including paninis, gozleme, menemen, kumpir, tantuni, and sucuk burgers. Then there's a succulent lunch special, which is such a bargain at just £6.95 for two courses, and includes two mezze dishes and a main meal!

Of course the staff at the restaurant are very happy to help you with the menu, and recommend something new for you to try.

As well as the delicious hot and cold mezze, there is also a very tasty barbeque menu, which includes chicken and lamb shish dishes, kebabs, kaburga, adana, pirzola, and wraps. All the barbeque dishes are cooked in the traditional manner over wood charcoal for exceptional flavour and quality.
Red Mezze, fine dining

Red Mezze, fine restaurant The gorgeous main dishes are all cooked to perfection, and include kleftiko, iskender, ali nazik, guvec, moussakka, izmir kofte, and kebabs. There are some exquisite fish dishes to choose from such as king prawns, levrek, cupra, swordfish, salmon and seafood guvec.

For vegetarians there is a mouth-watering vegetable moussakka, falafel, vegetable guvec, and a sumptuous vegetarian special. Naturally you can compliment your meal with a wine, beer or spirit from the fine selection of beverages on the menu.

After all that great food, if you can manage a dessert, the baklava, kadayif and kazandibi are all highly recommended with a Turkish coffee!
