Stopped by for lunch here. Service was great in terms of speed and helpfulness. The egg plant dip was superb and the grilled chicken kebab with saffron rice was really good. A great restaurant.

I ordered the lamb kebab with some hesitation. My experience at other restaurants was that it was chewy and tasteless. But here it was tender and full of flavor. My wife and step-daughter were also very happy with their meals (chicken kebabs). The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant and the service was prompt and friendly. It was the first time... More

Rayhoon has a very friendly, helpful staff and interesting dishes. Almost everything seems to come with rice that is so tasty! We had the Joojeh (chicken breast) kabob and the lamb shank. Nice ambient music.

This is a nice relaxing place to eat - with lovely persian food, and good wines. The service is very friendly.. A testament to it's quality is that this restaurant has lasted in Burlington's downtown for at least 5 years which is a feat in such a competitive market!

My hubby had the Soltani Kabob and I had the Lamb Shank and we shared the Rollette for dessert. Oh so yummy!! Service is amazing and owner comes to each table to... More
