Tasteless, Small Portions, and Pricy. We paid $76 for the food on the picture. We also found a hair. Very disappointed and not reflective of Persian food at all.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
