A couple weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary at a brand new restaurant called Tash. The beautiful ambiance, impeccable service, stunning views and incredible food made for a memorable celebration.
Tash is located on the third floor of the Talking Stick Resort and Casino in Scottsdale and offers breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain and the surrounding desert landscape. The interior decor is hip, welcoming and picture perfect. And the staff is knowledgable and friendly, our server made excellent suggestions and described the menu in delicious details.
The food was mouth watering. My husband is a relatively picky eater but he was feeling adventurous during and visit and has been raving about our meal ever since.
We started off the night with cocktails and a beautifully presented Mezze platter with hummus, roasted eggplant spread, goat cheese whip and skordalia served with warm toasted pita. All the dips and spreads were delicious but my favorite was the eggplant spread and the goat cheese and I could not get enough of that pita.
The Mezze was perfect to enjoy over cocktails while we watched the blazing sunset. We took our time enjoying the bites and sipping our drinks, I enjoyed the Verona Margarita made with tequila, amaretto., limoncello and bold orange. The margarita was a little bit sweet and tart, perfectly balanced and smooth. I loved it. My husband enjoyed the Toulouse Your Inhibitions made with whiskey, peach, basil and lemon. He said it was smooth and strong.
Tash takes pride in creating beautifully crafted, unique cocktails and the attention to detail is apparent in the taste and presentation. They also have a selection of alcohol-free drinks, cleverly called Free Spirits. I tried the Spiced Tea of St. Tropez and loved it. It was a creative and unique mix of chai tea, ginger beer and coconut. It was delicious, interesting and unlike anything I have ever sipped. It was very good and I highly recommend it!
The entrees on the menu are categorized as Agua (seafood) and Tierra (meats) and a selection of pizzas. We opted to carry on with the grazing and decided to order the Pirri Pirris Shrimp and a pizza, both ideal for leisurely noshing. The Piri Piri Shrimp was lightly battered and fried then bathed in a slightly spicy and smoky sauce. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and tender and the sauce was incredible. It hit all the right notes on the palette and was pretty addicting. It’s served with haricot vert and cous cous. My husband proclaimed the shrimp as his favorite bite of the night.
We also had the Due Pizza. The crust was light and very thin, with charred edges, just the way I like my pies. It was topped with artisan pepperoni, house made fennel sausage with red sauce and mozzarella. I am a pizza snob and this pie far exceeded my high standards.
The sweet ending to our wonderful meal were the most delicious cannoli I have ever had. The pastry shell was perfect, crispy and sweetly spiced and the cream inside was luxurious and velvety. We were delighted with the sweet message too.
Thank you Tash for making our celebration so memorable!
Tash is mindful of the health and safety of both staff and employees. Masks are required until you are seated and tables are spaced accordingly. Temperatures are taken upon arrival and hand sanitizer is readily available. We felt safe and comfortable during our visit and appreciated the precautions.
If you are looking for a great date night destination or a great GNO spot, Tash is definitely worth a visit. Our visit was top notch and one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in awhile. The great attention to detail put into Tash is evident in everything from the beautiful decor and ambiance to high-quality food and drinks.

We enjoyed our meal at Tash free of charge. All opinions are entirely my own.
