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

We went for lunch. The kabab meat was poor quality, the rice looked reheated, the chicken was dry and over cooked. Wouldn't go back

We have had Persian food in other countries and just love it. This is average - not out of a place for a takeaway. Pita straight out of a plastic bag, pretty average kebabs, with so so cuts of meat. On top of that the service is pretty poor, slow and unattentive and the setting is like a cafe. Maybe... More

I went to an app called FOODLER. Ordered dinner for my son and I. I submitted the order and received confirmation. After waiting 1hr I called the Restaursmt and they do not have my order. This was the worst experience I had. When calling the Restaursnt to explain they didn't bother caring. Just told me to reorder through them. They... More

The restaurant might seem small and underrated but if you give it a shot, it's a gem.... The kababs are to die for and perfect for halal meat lovers.... the service was friendly and informative.... the only reason i gave food 4/5 cause the soup we got was raw and tasteless (which i did not finish btw) but i overlooked...

Delicately prepared, contemporary presentations of Persian classics—Gheimeh Polo and Joojeh Kabob were fabulous.

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.
