“At Harissa we are passionate about making sure our food is absolutely delicious and stands out alongside all the other fantastic restaurants we have in the city. We love supporting the local economy by finding the best local businesses for our ingredients and, of course, looking after the environment with everything from supporting local litter pick-ups to choosing eco-friendly packaging. Creating a fair and happy working environment for our team full of training experiences, supporting the community through initiatives (such as our free Social Lunch Club), and tackling youth unemployment with trainee and apprenticeship programmes are amongst our passions as part of our community.”

This beautiful little restaurant is not only committed to everything we hold dear but is bringing something entirely new – a sort of turbocharged Ottolenghi-style of Mediterranean cooking that is as gorgeous to behold as it is to eat – to a Newcastle restaurant scene that has picked up dramatically in recent years and now goes from strength to strength.
