I was in this restaurant in September on a Monday at around 5.00 pm. There was 7 of us as we finished our meaks we saw ABIG RAT going from the middles of the r restaurant towards the cash. I had heard this restaurant has...had issues with Mice and Rats but I really thought they took care of it. The seats are gross, dirty and stained, customer service is really low. the food was OK. really nothing to go back for.More

Great Ambient, friendly staff, easy parking; however, my last week's visit to the restaurant made me questioned all of the above. I walked in and asked the staff if the serve halal, the staff said "yes, we do. All our items are 100% Halal". So...I decided to eat there. As we were leaving, we asked the bar tender if the food is halal and the fellow said "no, I have been working for a year and I haven't even HEARD of this". At that point I was DISAPPOINTED, how could someone LIE about food being HALAL? The "friendly staff" LIED to my face and served me Non-Halal food. I WON"T RECOMMEND to go there, if they could Lie about Halal Food, they would be lie about pretty much anything. You Decide.More

I have visited this restaurant many times, but not recently. Got a takeout appetizer recently and although the portion was small, it was good value for the money.

For the first time, we went to Gilaneh Restaurant on Denman Street for dinner. The main dishes are priced higher than other Persian restaurants however quality is not much different and our ground meat kabab was salty. The service was poor & we were really...surprised to see a $5 charge on our bill for a small plate of cold & oily rice taadig (it's an unusual practice in Persian restaurant, they didn't tell us when we asked for it, and price is just wrong). Not so keen to go back as we can get better food with reasonable prices else where.More

We were invited to join family and friends for their annual pre Christmas lunch. Very much enjoyed! Food was very good, loved the kebobs and the appies. Service quite good and the main dishes arrived piping hot and very quickly considering a group of 16....Very generous portions.More

Tonight there were a group of about 12 of us who went for dinner at the Gilaneh Grill house. I have to say not only me but the whole group that that everything was absolutely fantastic!!! The food was excellent and the staff really went...out of their way to take good care of us. Really great experience for sure we'll be coming back many times in the future with our family and friends. Highly recommend to come here.More

we went there for lunch. Asked for a couple of glasses of water and it came after 15 minutes. The food was terrible. The waitress kept cleaning other tables with Windex and the small of chemical was terrible and I got headache. I am very...very disappointed and will never come back to this terrible place with such a negative and upsetting customer service.More

Gilaneh Persian Grill is an interesting, dark, old style restaurant in North Vancouver. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed watching the cook grill kabobs on the fire-y bbq through the kitchen window while waiting for our take away dinner of lamb shank...and chicken stewed with pomegranate and walnut. The food was tasty and the chicken stew had interesting flavours. Next time I'd have a kabob grilled over the open flame - they looked amazing.More
