    Torontonian friends ....

    What's the best restaurant in town ? I was told Darbar is good. I also heard Gilaneh is decent. I used to go to shomal all the time but last time was my last time . the food was terrible. I heard they dropped their quality since the previous owner sold the business

    Shomal is still very good, it's the service which is hit and miss.

    Darbar is great based on my own experience (5 months ago) and what I heard from friends and relatives. A bit pricey though

    I went to Shomal Resturaunt for the first time a few months ago and had the Kabob Torsh and it was sweet. They should change the name to Kabob Shereen not Torsh. Overall i was not too impressed but that could be because my mother is shomali and the best shomali food is home made.

    Same as Shomal (same owner). Hit and miss. From absolute shit to maybe half-okay (never great). It's got an eerily weird atmosphere. Lots of risho-pashm faces and new-comers from Iran. I won't go there again.

    The best Koobideh I have had in the past 2 years has consistently been from "Shater Abbas". They have 2 locations. One is only express with excellent food. The main restaurant has the same stuff and is on Yonge south of Highway 7 (same plaza as Super Parsian). The owner recently passed away, but the food remains good.

    Honestly, most food in Toronto has gone beyond great and is simply amazing these days. I have traveled to many places and Toronto has some of the best ethnic food in the world.

    Unfortunately the places with the best food don't have the best ambiance. If you want good ambiance, Gilaneh in my opinion is pretty good.

    Shater Abbas is very good food, but the restaurant decor itself is very ordinary.

    There's also some restaurants which the hipster crowd love such as takht tavous and pomegranate but they're marketed towards non-Iranians.

    There is a very good restaurant called Reihoon in Burlington (near Hamilton), pricy but high quality and great setting.

    One of the best Kabab's i ever had outside Iran was Raffi's place in Glendale, CA. The portion is at least 1 1/2 of other places and the price is reasonable for the portion.
