BEWARE! I have gotten violently ill from being served raw/undercooked chicken at Taftan. My friend and I ordered 2 orders of the chicken breast kebab dinner (number 6 on the menu) in the evening on Sunday, May 11, 2014. I was almost done eating my dinner before I realized I had ingested a plate full of raw chicken. When I... More

So, the food is very good but it would be nice if you had the customer service to match that. Show of hands...who's heard of a store where they punch your order in and refuse to change or cancel it once they do. I have! IT'S THIS JOINT!! I was pushed into buying a more expensive dish today because I... More

This place is a hole in the wall and a fast food place. The service is quick, food is cheap but I question the sanitary aspect of it. There is a sign outside of the restaurant posted by Ontario Ministry of Health giving it only a "Conditional Pass" during their last inspection due to health hazards. This is indicative of... More

Prices are really good, portions are generous. Everything is cooked to perfection. Very authentic food. Great for take-outs or sitting on the patio in the summer( very small inside) Really recommend to anyone who want to try Persian food( charcoal grilled kebabs are to die for!!!)

We visited this place for a quick and cheap meal one evening, and it was very good food. It is not a proper sit-down restaurant, but you can eat in at a counter in the window. There is a great choice of different kebabs - chicken, minced meat, beef etc, and very big helpings. My husband's dinner was big enough... More

Excellent place to get takeout. There are a few seats in case you want to eat inside but i wouldn't recommend it. Food is excellent regardless of your choice. Price is even better. Highly recommended.

I used to frequent the restaurant when it was called Solatani Kebab House. I was in the area and searched online for the phone number, but it wasn`t listed. When I arrived the large menu board was still at the small patio but with a new name - Taftan Kabab. Inside the layout changed, large TV, counters and stools on... More

I ordered the Barg Kebab for lunch, sliced beef on skewers grilled over charcoal. The beef is served with rice, grilled tomatoes and salad. It is wonderful and makes for a great lunch. I don't speak Persian, but the staff helped with the menu and I was pretty sure I would like the Barg Kebab. Most of their business is... More
