An authentic Persian restaurant recently opened its doors in Northland, bringing flavors of western Asia. Caspian Restaurant is now open at 4989 Cleveland Ave. in the former location of Zaika Gyro & Kebabs.
The made-from-scratch menu offers dishes rarely seen in the Columbus area: Gheimeh Bademjon (fried eggplant and split peas cooked in a tomato sauce, dried lime), Ash Reshteh (herbs, pinto beans, lentil, peas, noodle, kashk), Kookoo Sabzi (mixed herbs, garlic, onion, egg), and Kookoo Sib-Zamini (mixed potatoes, onion, egg).

More familiar dishes like kebab varieties, baklava, hummus, and even a hamburger are also offered. Nemati also offers catering and meal planning.
Chef and owner Victoria Nemati told This Week News she believes Caspian is in a prime location because of the area’s Arabian people who know and love Persian cuisine.
Caspian Restaurant is open from 12pm- 9pm Tuesdays through Saturdays, 12pm- 8pm Sundays, and closed Mondays. Visit caspiancatering.com.
