Bringing sumptuous Persian delights to the leafy suburb of Didsbury, Pomegranate offers a homely yet fashionable retreat. As well as a comprehensive selection from the mosaic-tiled bar, guests can enjoy regular poetry readings.

Evoking the prolific culinary heritage of Persia, the Pomegranate menu is filled with wholesome, home-cooked offerings. Moreish house specialities include chicken with walnut and pomegranate, marinated lamb with rich coco beans, or smoked aubergine with freshly baked bread.

As well as traditional Middle Eastern desserts like baklava, Pomegranate offers a twist on traditional recipes, like silky panna cotta and rich cheesecake. Cleansing homemade sorbets are served at Pomegranate Didsbury, whilst traditional Persian ice cream is made to a traditional recipe of clotted cream, pistachio and saffron.

Authentic yet fashionable, the Pomegranate restaurant dining room features ornate stained glass lanterns, rich embroidered fabric and chunky wood furnishings. East Didsbury Rail Station is a 7-minute drive away.

    Pomegranate looks very inviting from the outside and inside the atmosphere is vibrant but also relaxed. The food was delicious: lovely thin crisp naan bread, beautifully cooked rice with interesting flavour combinations. I'd like to go again but this time just have mezze so as to leave room to try the desserts!

    We have dined here in the past and it has always been very pleasant, unfortunately we were very disappointed with the food last night. The authentic Persian flavours seem to have been lost in the dishes.

  • ((((( 12 March 2017 by Robert White from Manchester

    We enjoyed a superb meal in a relaxed atmosphere with great service. The dishes were full of flavour and genuinely different to the standard restaurant fare. The food is clearly cooked with care and a desire to provide really authentic Persian dishes, sweets and drinks and not simply a westernised version thereof. A real gem of a place with some delightful décor, especially the beautiful lamps. A treat to find such a fantastic, independent and unique restaurant and we will definitely be back to try more dishes soon. There was also a good choice of accompanying drinks, including some different and very tasty beers, wines and Persian alternatives with the Mango Liqueur to finish being a great digestive!

    We had a beautiful meal here with friendly service. Some of the tastes were new to us so it made the experience exciting. As a meat eater and vegetarian going out to eat we were both deliciously happy.
