Service was excellent. Our waiter was warm and genuine and she made good recommendations with regard to the menu. Both the owner's father and the owner came to our table to say hello, which was a very nice touch. The setting in Burlington's Village Square...More

I have never eaten a Persian food before this visit, but now I'm converted. Great flavours, perfect service and helpful with the menu. A must in Burlington and Hamilton

Can't say I get it. The food was average, the place isn't very clean, and service was a little scattered. I don't see a reason to go back.

I have been to Rayhoon several times and will definitely go again. The quality of food is great, and if you want to experience real Persian cuisine you should try their food, especially Kobobs and appetizers. Super friendly staff.
