Really awesome restaurant theme with delicious ethnic food. Fast and friendly service. Our server even brought us a complimentary sauce she thought would go really great with our meal, and it did! For sure will come back to try more dishes!

I have been coming here for years and the food is always good! You can’t go wrong with the koobideh kabob, a classic. The chicken kabob and steak pieces kabob are also very good choices, and it comes with a side of saffron rice and a roasted tomato which is delicious. The appetizers are good, I particularly like to try the rayhoon trio to try different dips with the Persian bread. If you’re a group of 4 I would suggest ordering the Tabriz menu pack which is a selection of kabobs and rice. The desserts are good, be sure to try the poached pear. The atmosphere dining in is nice, and I’ve also ordered takeout too. The prices are on the high side but the food is good quality.

To be fair, this place should get 4.5 stars not 4.To start, the ambiance was very nice and calming. The music tune was good and the volume was just right, so you can hear it but can still have a conversation effortlessly. Some areas of the restaurant were a little beat down, and require some renovation. Patio was beautiful 5/5.We tried the kebab tursh and the bath kebab from the grill; both were spectacular. Juicy, moist and grilled just right. 5/5We also tried the lintel soup, the cumin was very dominant, and it was hard to get any other flavour from it 3/5.Finally we tried the yogurt doog drink, which was amazing. It had nice mix of herbs and a hint dried lemon. We couldn't stop drinking. 5/5The food display was bland. For a place priced the way it is, you'd expect a little more effort on this part. 2/5Service was excellent. The staff were friendly, and accommodating, and quickly corrected two mistakes that were made with our order 5/5.The bathrooms were clean and well put together. 4/5

This was one of the most disappointing dining experiences I have ever had. We waited 20 minutes and no one came out to our table even for a drink order. I went into the restaurant and the girls working there were just sitting down. They looked uninterested in even talking to me and see what my issue was. Burlington has many wonderful restaurants. I would not consider this one of them.

Really lovely patio. The appetizer dip trio was very good and the home made pita was excellent. I had the beef with a tamarind sauce on it. It was tender and quite good. My husband had the chicken kebab which was also tender and flavorful.

Can’t remember the plates’ namesBut the berry goat cheese salad, trio dipping appetizer (eggplants-hummus and yogurt) and chicken/beaf skewers were good.They have friendly staff that offer good service

I’ve tried many persian restaurants prior to coming here.The food quality is average. Rice and meat lacks salt and tastes bland. The portions are small, not sure if this is post COVID cutback, but not impressed. The servers are outstanding. For the dollar value I would not recommend coming here, there are much better places with better value and offer more protein portions.In summary:Over priced for the value you getNot worth the 50 min driveWould not come back unless desperate

We went to Rayhoon following a Social Media Blogger’s recommendation. But they were so bad and even the food was awful. The food was neither hot nor tasty. Would not recommend anyone ever to visit them as they need to improve on quality food and service.


We dined at Rayhoon tonight and have dined there several times. Attentive Owner, great staff, and authentic Persian food, highly recommend it,

Four of us had dinner last night and after seeing the 4+ rating decided to dine with your restaurant. Two of us are from middle eastern background and were all very disappointed in the lack of seasoning in every one of our different dinners that we ordered. To each his own but it won't be for us again, thank you anyhow.

This place is sooooooo good! The patio was charming, the service was excellent and all of the food was packed with so much flavour. Only disappointment was that they were out of the dessert I wanted to try. Just gives me a reason to come back sooner! I can’t wait to bring my friends and family to this place. Everyone loved their meals. Including the kids!

The food was authentic, flavourful and delicious. Service was quick, attentive, and courteous. The owner’s father was at the entrance gate guiding people around the patio, very charming and provided that extra mile of service that really brought the charm of restaurant. Ambiance was lovely with faint instrumental music in the background. Prices were very reasonable, I highly recommend.

I usually don't compare Persian restaurants here with those one inside Iran, but I'm not exaggerating if I say this restaurant is way better than the most of the restaurants I've tried in Iran! Charming place, authentic and delicious food, considerate and nice owner, professional and polite staff... it was one of the best parts of our trip to Niagara Falls!
