Reviewed October 17, 2012

Spent a great night with friends eating great food and drinking some very good vodka with pommegrenate juice. The koobideh Loghme is incredible.

“Extremely expensive for the food you get!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I love Persian food and I could not believe that you have to pay extra for your rice. That's like offerring a m eat dish without potatoes. But even having said this we had to snack after we got home. We also order Baklava which turned out to be a cake!. No apologizies :(. but the final straw was that you must pay $21.00 for a hooka!

“Best Persian food in the city”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

This place for people who enjoy their meets organic and of the top quality. You can tell that the chef ensures the right cuts of meat is used to make all the dishes. This place is not for everyone as it is quite unapologetic in many ways. The vodka cocktails are excellent - pick of the bunch is the one with cucumber slices in it! I'm salivating...

Reviewed May 3, 2012

Authentic, fresh, well-prepared. My favourite Persian restaurant in Toronto. Wonderfully prepared with a great blend of spices.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Lots of locals and Iranians eating here - the most interesting items on the menu not available. Meat heavy, pricy cocktails, good liver, dim lighting for reading. Stumbled across it, which made it worthwhile. Not a destination restaurant.
