The worst Persian food I've had in a restaurant

The quality was shockingly terrible. I am Persian and I took a friend to this restaurant sort of as an intro to Persian food. Purely terrible, and thankfully the portions are soooo small in this restaurant we only had to endure a little of it. Eventually ended up costing way more than it was worth... read more

Score: 11/20. Great home style Persian food. Beef kebab and lamb shanks are the meat highlights. The fennel and fava bean rice is impossibly delicious.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
