This place has daily specials and my friend ordered one, in this case a lamb shank. Apparently it was very good. I ordered something else, which happened to be not hot at all so I sent it back. They remade the dish so I had to wait quite a bit, but I ended up with a lot of food. The... More

I've been here several times. The food is absolutely delicious. Pricey but the plates are very big, I usually take home the left over and two more times I dine on it:) The service is good, the waitresses are running and attentive. I will come back and refer it to all of my friends.

Average in this case means "good", since there is no Tripadvisor "good" rating. I just read several reviews panning the restaurant (I gather this is one of a chain of restaurants; or at any rate there is more than one of them) -- some of them having to do with bad service -- but we're happy to redress the trend....

Zeitoon used to be our favourite restaurant in Vancouver until our last visit yesterday! We arrived and were told to sit anywhere. Instead of our waitress following us with a menu, we waited about 10 minutes at our table, then decided to switch tables to make sure we were visible and that they remembered we were still there! The two... More

We ended up dinning in this restaurant after finding our favorite closed. We were not disappointed at all but rather very pleased. It's a small busy place. The service was good. But the food was excellent. It was the best Persian we ever had.

The restaurant is located on a side street off Denman and has a nice outdoor seating area, which is very appealing. While my food was good, the terrible service overshadowed the entire experience. The waitress seemed overwhelmed, but was only serving three tables. While she was struggling to get orders served, another staff person started her shift and immediately started... More

I had heard about this restaurant from my daughter who thought we would enjoy something different and she was right. We had never tried Persian cuisine and love discovering new cultures. Our guide/friend was absolutely amazing and we trusted his selections. The staff was new however and billing ended up being confusing but it didn't discourage us from our overall... More

Food was good. Service was terrible. Staff were rude and lazy. I've walked by here a bunch of times and was always interested in trying how this restaurant was, but it turned out to be a very disappointing experience, so I definitely won't be going a second time. There was an extreme lack of attention from the staff and they... More

Hello, We have been ordering from Zeitoon for awhile now and it has mostly been for delivery. Numerous times have they missed an item or two even though they have charged us for the items. Every time we call and complain they say that they will add notes to the account and will send the missing items out next time... More

Only a stones throw from the beach and away from the hubbub just off Denman, was this little place. We were trying to decide from all the other restaurants nearby and it just so happened this one was right across the street from where my friend was staying. It's a small restaurant with spare decor. Nothing fancy. I'm not familiar... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
