We were exhausted and hungry after a long day of sightseeing in Toronto and just wanted to eat near our accommodation. We weren't expecting to much since this part of Yonge Street is very touristy. But we were positively surprised: the food was very good...More

We decided to try a Persian restaurant whilst we were visiting Toronto, having eaten in many in the UK. The food, whilst being mostly authentic Persian, was ok – nothing special, but ok. I was however surprised that the koobideh kebabs were beef – authentic...More

I love Persian food and am thrilled when restaurants cater to vegetarians like myself. They make a delicious Mushroom Fesanjan, which is totally worth every bite. Definitely recommend!

We enjoyed our meals at Darvish - very different. The portions were large & moderately priced. The only negative was the poor wine selection.

The entire experience was lacklustre ! The owner who was Persian made no effort to greet and connect. The waitress barely spoke English and had no clue about menu as she was Asian! Food average like the atmosphere lacked flavour!

A decent place with authentic food. Very tasty meats, and the rest of the food was good as well, though I think that Faloodeh might be an acquired taste. Price was a bit high, and for the same price more exotic food can be found...More

We had not had Persian food before. It's basically Iranian, sort of a cross between Indian and middle eastern. Very flavourful kabobs, with rice, and healthy, unusual stews. Not much of a beer selection, just the major Canadian brands in bottled. Worth a try, especially...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
