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.

We had dinner here and really enjoyed everything. Friendly & efficient server, hot and tasty food - at a reasonable price. We started with eggplant dip appetizer - whipped with mint and spices. It came with warm pita, but the dip was so delicious, I ate it direct with my fork. Dinner was shish-kebob (marinated chicken and beef) for my husband and lamb biryani for me. Generous, hot (as in temperature) servings. We both took home about 30% of our dinner. Loved the lamb - lean, long-cooked and flavorful over biryani rice. Highly recommend.

Cafe Natasha is a small unassuming place with white cloth tablecloths and a very nice ambience. The service was prompt and courteous. The food was outstanding - a platter of hummus, Baba Ganoush, and falafel was a great starter. Kabobs for dinner with basmati rice and salads with wonderful fresh feta cheese - all delightful.

Iranian cuisine with regional specialities. NOT a steak & chop place so don't go with those hopes! Worth a visit or three.
