Discovered this place while walking and had dinner there on our third night in Toronto. My exposure to Persian cuisine is limited to one previous experience and recipes I have read. My adventorous husband and I decided to give a try and we are glad we did. The owner was amiable and patient, the atmosphere relaxed as is the service.... More

The owners were very kind! We really enjoyed our visit and the food is wonderful! You could tell everything was homemade. We ended up eating here due to other Tripadvisor comments and because we were looking for something "different". You won't be disappointed!

A nice spot in crazy Yonge St. Food is delish and service is lovely. Not a fancy spot but relaxed, reasonable and a little bit exotic. I loved it.

First it's important to correct the location on Tripadvisor. They have it out in North York. It's actually on Yonge between College and Wellesley. --on the west side, quite close to the Courtyard Marriott. We've been there twice and tried some tasty, hearty soups as apps, though they are very filling. One bowl would definitely serve two. We've also tried... More

I had never had persian food before, but beyond that, the freshness of the vegetables, the way the meats were cooked ( to perfection) and the amazing rice served with the meal were mixed with just the right amount of spices and herbs, they elevated the food without camouflaging anything. The service was friendly and warm. The deserts were an... More

This restaurant is a real gem! The food was very authentic persian and delicious!! It is a real, small family business with the owner serving you the food. Service was attentive but not hovering which was good. I left very pleased. I will definitely be back to eat at this place soon!!!

Having wandered Younge Street many times in search of dinner I must have passed Darvish several times without really noticing it, from the outside it doesn't stand out, but inside it's really pleasant. The menu has the standard Middle-eastern kebabs but also a couple of dishes I've never tried before. The one a tried was a kind of mildly spicy... More

On arrival we were greeted by the owner, a lovely woman who answered my endless questions. Decor of lamps, pots and Iranian memorabilia transports you immediately. The place is small and wasn't busy at all so we were able to get an impromptu reservation. They were nice enough to let us park our industrial stoller (UPPA) off the entrance as... More
