A word from Cafe Natasha's
More than a Saint Louis original, Café Natasha’s offers Persian inspired cuisine with a focus on bold flavor. Everything is fresh. Everything is homemade. Taste buds delight in diverse offerings from exclusively marinated Sirloin Steak Kabob to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menu options like the critic-acclaimed Grilled Pomegranate Eggplant. Best known for an expertise in lamb, guest favorites include fall-off-the-bone Braised Lamb Shank, Charbroiled Lamb Chops and savory Persian lamb stews.

Celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, the recently renovated restaurant boasts sleek contemporary comfort with the warmth of Persian art and hospitality. Owner/Chef Hamishe and daughter Natasha are often spotted making their rounds with their guests, many on a first-name basis with the family. Affordable and approachable, Café Natasha’s has many options including a casual bar area, main dining room and a large outdoor patio and garden to enjoy dining al-fresco this summer.

Diner Reviews
  • "Cafe Natasha provides very good food at a reasonable price, and the quality is very consistent. They offer the best Osh in our experience, but other dishes are also very good and offer a Persian flavoring, not the same as other middle Eastern restauruants. The family and waiters are friendly and helpful. It is always worth the trip to eat there."

  • "Great choice for Persian-inspired food. Be sure to try the Osh (lentil soup). Patio seating was very pleasant (except under the grape arbor, where there were mosquitoes)."

  • "The atmosphere was very nice with white table clothes, but not overly stuffy. It would be nice for a family or for a romantic evening. The wait staff was very attentive but not aggressive or annoying. It does fill up the later it gets so I would suggest reservations if you have more than 2 people or it's a weekend. The food was divine! I tried food I had never had before and the meat, Oh the MEAT was perfect and melted in your mouth. The rice was tender, and the salad was one of the best I've had. Will definitely go back."

  • "We love Cafe Natasha's. Even though it's been around for 30 years it's awesome and feels new every time. It's one of those places you go to and think "why don't I come here more often." So please don't go. Don't make it too crowded. Don't take all the good food. Don't drink all the inventive cocktails. Or at least don't do it when I want to go."

  • "Advertised as vegan friendly but not so at all. My gal, who is vegan, is able to eat at most any restaurant without any issues. Most all servers and chefs are very accommodating but they had no interest in being helpful at all. Would not modify menu items to make vegan. If theyou had been busy, I could almost understand. I always try multiple times before giving up on a place [everyone has bad days] , but the service was ridiculously poor. It will be quite some time before I have a desire to try again. "

  • "We had not dined at Cafe Natasha for some time and were pleasantly surprised to see the place renovated. The food was good as always. In the future, we would like to see some specials and perhaps some variation of menu items. But overall, we enjoyed our dining experience."

  • "The menu has grown considerably over the years, but the core of Persian dishes has not changed, and the quality has been maintained, and perhaps even improved. The Osh is among the best anywhere. It is still run by the original family, and the care for customers shows in all aspects of the meal."

  • "This was our first experience at this restaurant. The website was very nicely designed and helpful in pre-planning our orders. Once there, the food was awesome and the servers were very friendly."

  • "Our first time visit was a pleasant surprise. We will definitely return for another meal due to the ethnic authenticity of the food and great service."
