I've gone to this place possibly 100 times (maybe more) in the last decade. I love the food, it's ultimate comfort food for me as the dishes are hearty and healthy as well. The beef stew is delicious, the kabobs are juicy and grilled to perfection and the chefs special chicken legs are amazing. I'm also a huge fan of... More

Food is bit pricey for the type of restaurant but that may be a common theme in Victoria, this was our first dining... More

This restaurant is a great place for people who likes the Middle Eastern food. . The staff was nice and friendly, and the food portions are large and yummy. Thank you so much and we will definitely come back soon for the chicken kaboob!

Great Kababs and Koreshts (stews), a good variety of rices and reasonable prices. Most people's preferences are the lamb dishes. The lamb Koobideh is our favorite dish.

Best Persian Food in Victoria. Humble settings, not much signage to find them. The lamb rocks and they serve the best rice I have ever tasted.

It is one of the nicest places to eat Middle Eastern and Iranian in Victoria. I love their lamp recipes, their rice, their Iranian style drinks and the lovely atmosphere. Perfect place for lunch if you want to catch up with friends and have a relaxed healthy and satisfying meal. Can't wait to go back!

Our dinners on our recent trip to Victoria to view the Christmas lit Inner Harbour were outstanding. The lamb and eggplant dishes were perfect and the service was excellent--all at a very affordable price. A real off the main street gem.

This is a small restaurant on a side street just off of government street. I was excited to find Persian food in Victoria and decided to try the kabob Barg with barberry rice (zereshk) and a barbecued tomato. The restaurant interior is very simple and lacks aesthetic appeal. The service was friendly but not especially attentive, I waited a while... More

I have been there with my family and friends several times, and I just want to say that the food is amazing. That's exactly what we need in Victoria... Real taste of Persian food. I love the food; how ever I am sure that there is lots of room to improve in decorations. Thank you so much :)
