A great place for authentic persian food.
Love their meals especially the Chicken skewers (forgot the persian name on the menu) and their salads (different from Toronto which has lettuce).

Food was delicious but the service was so-so...they need to be more approachable and go out of their way to be my acquainted with their customers.
Just very cold or brush off attitude.

Overall, enjoyed sitting on the patio, enjoying the great food and company.

Also, their portions are huge, so be sure to share a plate with someone.
Price is ok but if they can't serve, don't tip.

Thank HandsomeDoc

I've been to Cazba a few times; in fact, every time I go to Vancouver, I pay them a visit. Cazba is one of the few Persian restaurants in North America that properly resembles the atmosphere of a down town Tehran Chelokabab house. The quality of food is great, although due to the greasy salty nature of Iranian meat kebabs and rice, I cannot say it is very healthy (just a moral issue:)). Every food on the menue is worth trying, especially Tahchin, Soltani Chelokabab, and Lima Rice with Lamb. The service is OK, but could be better. The staff are friendly, but their behavior is not a 5 star level. Who cares, given the price, it is reasonable and pleasurable unless you are picky.

Dined with out of town colleagues at Cazba for the first time. I'm not too familiar with Persian food, but I can say that the chicken and beef kabobs are delicious. All of the meats were cooked very tender and not dry at all. Rice was cooked well and not oily.

I understand that some recent renovations have taken place and the size of the restaurant has doubled as they have taken over the adjacent premise. The atmosphere is now very warm and inviting. On a Monday night. the restaurant was 80% full which speaks for itself.

Service was exceptional. Both the waiters and the owner were very friendly.

Definitely return.

We went there based on a friend's recommendation for a good Persian restaurant in Vancouver and it was very good. The Kebabs are delicious and well cooked but the starters were not so good. The service was fast and great. Note no reservation needed.
