I arrived and ate on my own, coming in for a business trip. The smell is incredible even outside the front door. I had the torsh kabob which is beef marinated in pomegranate and walnuts. It was amazing and that is a flavour that still makes my mouth water. I also had a shirazi salad which I've had before, but... More

Having not had Persian food before, I enjoyed the new flavours. I probably won't be back though as it wasn't great. Service was very poor as well.

Found the restaurant to be beautiful with great ambiance. The service was also good. The food though was so so. I had a sultani dish. Both the koubideh kebab and the barg were dry and hard to swallow. I think their kebabs are made of veal. While that may keep your cholesterol lower, it definitely takes away from the taste....

Visited here with family and friends. The place is generally quit busy and you will notice they cater to the genuine Persian audience. the menus is unique, a bit heavy on egg plant and related dishes. The service was polite but not efficient and the place seemed a bit thin staffed for the Wednesday evening we were there. Some dishes... More

Gilaneh is adjacent to the hotel I was staying. Surrounded by beautiful landscape/trees. When I walked in, I was mesmerized - it was upscale, beautiful setting, nice decor, cozy atmosphere. For a starter served the typical persian vegetables (radish, parsley, fresh bread, butter). Main dish - ghormeh sabzi (my son's favourite). This is a persian stew made with various greens,... More

This is my favourite Persian food eatery but I'm a little confused. The menu here states that Sultani Kabab is $21 but I was just charged $24 for a takeout!! My starter was the same price as eat in menu. There should surely be a difference in prices for eat-in and take-out. The food itself was acceptable although the barg... More

Took clients to this beautiful restaurant that is on the same grounds as the Westin Prince Toronto hotel and they were impressed with the food. This restaurant caters to Persian food and I thinks its one of the best in the city. Their fresh baked bread and assortment of appetizers makes for a great start to dinner. Their favorable portions... More
