I've been twice now and the food and service is excellent. I had never had Iranian food before but the owner took the time to explain the dishes and how they are prepared. Simply great and I'll be going back for sure.

Visiting from Alberta - I have to say Sherbrooke I'm stunned this place is not jammed packed. The location, service, price and quality is what I'd expect would cause a stampede!

If you're reading this stop what you're doing and get there. In Calgary a joint like this .... you wouldn't get in.

Reasons:
1. Price - I challenge you to find a better meal at these prices that is not burger and fries
2. Portion size - you'll get plenty and every plate is a lovely melange of fresh veggies, flavourful adds like olives and chopped mint salad, pickles, cabbage etc.
3. The glamour of flavour - silky rice, subtle tangs, bold meaty tastes and exotic spices such as saffron and cardomin... Cmon... I don't care what language you speak it's fun to say you ate saffron and cardomin and hells bells they make things taste good
4. It's from Iran - when was the last time you ate something from Iran?
5. Education - face the TV and watch the videos of views and attractions of Iran... I had no idea is was so beautiful
6. Friendly - service is lovely and quick and the owner came out to speak with us... Asking why Sherbrooke and why her joint. Because trip advisor told me too and I did not want anymore poutine.
7. Corkage - bring your own wine

IMO I'd say get there... Proudly say you were when is was quiet and unknown. I hope it does well and continues to serve these dramatic Persian flavours.

Tip: try the tea after, the cardomin infusion is in house and I've never tasted stuff like it. Amazing.
Dinner: have beef kabobs for sure, broccoli salad and the negini.

Enjoy Sherbrooke... You're lucky to have them.

Food was good, service too. Owner came and chatted with us, asked our opinion, gave us some information about food, very interesting. The items I ordered were well prepared and presented. One of my friends had already eaten there several times (gave us recommendations of what to try and what we may wish to avoid) and the other 2 were newbies like me. Everyone enjoyed their meal!
