Great Persian Comfort Food

I come here almost once a week since it is like a Persian comfort food Diner. The best dish I found is their ground chicken Kebab and Tah Dig.

I always eat here when I am passing through and it a great experience to try different ethnic food. The chicken with saffron is the best I have ever had. The basmati rice is always light and fluffy. Ask to try something if you are not sure and they will give you a sample. The service is not the best... More

Having been to Zeitoon, I decided to see what Yaas Bazaar was like. Again, being from Calgary, I wanted to see what the hype was that I was hearing from family and friends. 1. Restaurant and small and very tight for seating 2. Cleanliness and tidiness could have been better. Rice on the floor and tables. Very easy to clean,... More

Went there for a quick lunch and were not disappointed! You walk up to the counter, check out the menu choices that are displayed and order. Once you pay, pick up your order number and go to a table. The food is served to you when it's ready. There are lots of choices and sides to choose from. We chose... More

Enjoyed their saffron kabab and the best eggplant kohresh stew. Ideal for take out. Reasonable prices, authentic cuisine. Not great for service or ambiance.

There is a large Persian (Iranian) community on Vancouver's North Shore, and Lonsdale is the commercial epicentre. Naturally, that means restaurants, and now, they are almost as ubiquitous as sushi joints. However, Yaas stands out for its quality/price. For $6.95, you get the specialty of the day, for a few dollars more, anything off the menu. I had a beef... More

I visited Vancouver a couple of months ago with my boyfriend who had lived in Iran for several months. We asked a local for a recommendation. His wife happens to be Iranian and he recommended Yaas. It was a great restaurant. As we walked up and down the street, looking for the restaurant, we saw an other Persian restaurant a... More
