Went here for Father's Day. Was expecting some live music but the tape did the trick. Good was absolutely amazing! Portions were enormous.
Price $20-$40 per person. On the upper end of Persian food but the eminence and quality make it worth it.

Thank Saleha B

Went for a business lunch and the food was outstanding ! The service was quick and the waitress very accommodating. We started with an appetizer platter, then a huge salad, then the kebob platter. It followed with dessert and wonderfully tasting hot tea. The portions were gigantic. I ended up taking half of it home. So tasty !

I have a lot of Persian friends and family and also cook Persian food, but some things, like Fesunjun, Tahdig (the crusted rice) and chelo we sometimes like to check out through others' recipes. We ordered a take out, for delivery, of Fesunjun, rice plus khobideh (chicken kebabs) with pomegranate rice.

Delivery time was great, bang on when they said it would arrive. There were large food servings, although much more rice than we could eat, especially in proportion to the kebab sizes.

The Fesunjun was delicious, really tasty and tender - it is the not the most attractive looking dish, but even though a fairly small portion, its richness means that was fine.

Here is the real rub - the price! You can get take out and delivery from other restaurants such as Indian, Chinese, Sushi, Pizza, Italian etc in Toronto for about half the price. My advice would be, like a couple of others on here, don't order the takeout - find a good Persian cook book and do it yourself, unless you want the whole dining experience, in which case I would be willing to give it another go. But the food was good, just made 'ok' by the price, sorry.
