There have been quite a few locations at this address on Pendrell at the corner of Denman Street in beautiful English Bay over the years. We got around to trying Zeitoon Grill House a few months ago and have been hooked ever since or new neighborhood favorite.
The place has a real authentic feel as soon as you come in the door. The staff, the clientele you just know this is a good place to eat as soon as you come in and this place can get full at times now.
It’s not a big restaurant, but they have enough tables inside, a few booths tucked away in the back and one big one on the side, each fairly private from another. Now that the weather is nice, they’ve put a few tables on the front, which is going to be nice in the evening sun now that the weather is good.
The food quality is superb, many grilled meats, lamb shank, Persian favorites and a few wines to choose from. The balsamic rice is the fluffiest with generous amounts of Saffron sprinkled on top and added to many of the usual plates. The prices are very reasonable, portions quite large and the service fantastic.
