Very bad customer at that time we want to pay very rude lady cashier 🤔🤔 But good quality

I was there in this afternoon (Feb.2,2020) with my 2 kids and my wife. We waited the queue, but the guy in the front. the receptionist is a racist and very rude. He wrote us at the second page of the guest list while the Persian is in the front page. He priorities in his same nationality. I explained to him that we came first before that 2 groups even but he shouted and he said I dont care. I said we're just gonna leave and he replied at me. that's good!.. he's very rude unpolite..hoping that you do some action to this matter. Hoping that you dont tolerate this kind of employee. Thanks.

Where is the Menu

You can call their and ask about.

I cant find menu and is it halal?

Here is the menue: https://www.zomato.com/toronto/darband-restaurant-north-york-gta/menu and yes, it is halal.

Where can i see the menu? What do they have for breakfast?

Look at my photos for their menu

Can someone share opening and closing hours? It says it is open 24 hours. Is it true ?

The kababs are very good and delicious but the restaurant looks dirty especially the glasses need to be clean really. they need some kind shade provider , so much sun shine on after noon.

Loved the atmosphere. It was absolutely packed for lunch on a Sunday and people kept coming. It is clearly a popular Iranian joint. While I always love eating in packed places because it gives the impression that the food is SO good, perhaps the kitchen was overwhelmed by the constant stream of patrons...We were disappointed that our chicken breast kabob was not properly cooked. It was undercooked on the inside, so we ended up leaving half of it on the plate to avoid any potential illness. My partner also found that the spicing of the ground meat kabob could have been tastier. I would go back but perhaps when it's not so busy. Hopefully some improvement is made to proper cook time of all dishes when the house is packed.

Was recommended by a friend to be the best Persian restaurant in North America. Maybe a bit of overstatement, but food is quite good regardless. Place was busy when we visited. The best thing is it's open 24 hours.

Amazing, authentic Persian restaurant. Please is really busy, which is usually a good sign. Enjoyed a nice starter with eggplant and onions, and continued with rice and lamb shank. Everything was delicious, however, the portions are enough to share between several people.The place was packed with Persians, which speaks for the place. Absolutely will go back!

Delicious and authentically Persian judging by prevalence of persians in the crowd Looks like a cheap eatery so it’s mostly for a really good food and family business atmosphere. Not for a fancy outing but for a pure culinary enjoyment Surprisingly no coffee which makes Persians the only nation in the Middle East who doesn’t consume coffee on the hourly basis

The quality of food is on a par with the one you can have inside of Iran. Perfect Iranian cuisine. The staffs were helpful and smiling. The price is fair, Between 9 to 15$ for main food. They almost covered every famous Iranian food in their menu. What else do you need to visit this 24-hour restaurant?

We were there at 9 pm during a long weekend for our first visit. We didn’t have reservation but they kindly offered us a table despite it was a busy night. I liked their sense of helpfulness and the way they tried to have us, especially because we had a guest with us and we really wanted to eat there. The food was big and delicious. The cutlery was clean. The staff were kind. The atmosphere was cosy and comfortable. We will definitely come back. I recommend booking your table well in advance during weekends.

Amazing small, cozy and delicious restaurant. Open 24 hours a day! Chicken and Barg (steak) were very juicy and tender. Cut and cooked to perfectly melt in your mouth. Great experience and excellent service! I found my new go to spot!

Delicious, melt-off-the-bone lamb is served at Darband.My husband and I came to this cozy restaurant on a Saturday night at peak time. It was packed and we waited 25 mins to be seated. We just walked around until the host called us.We both ordered the lamb neck (I can't remember the name). The portions are HUGE. 2-3 people can eat one platter. We didn't know this and ordered two of the lamb necks as entrees. We ended taking one whole platter home for leftovers.The food was so flavourful. The servers were quick with our order. We had a nice time here. We are definitely coming back!

Great place to have good food, although the wait time was just over 30 mins, but it was worth it. An expansion of the space would be great since the restaurant is really tight. Great quality food though. Service was good, there was a lady that was super nice and attentive.

Ordered my food on the phone and picked up and paid for contactless and from behind the glass. Food quality is also great. There are 2 doors however which you need to open to enter. Better to have a tissue with yourself to open the doors as almost every one has to touch those door handles to get their food.

The food is great in terms of price and taste as well as portion only thing I don’t like as much is the chicken that they use it does not taste fresh it tastes like left over chicken. Other than that the food is good.

Hey Darband,For my UberEats koobideh order, you only sent me 1 skewer instead of 2. You also didn't include rice and tomato. It'd be great if you send me at least the other skewer.Thanks,

The food is very good, the portion sizes are great but I couldn’t give it a proper rating due to the fact that they did not include any of the normal side dishes that come with Kabob. Normally you get mixed greens/herbs and onion but the restaurant said they can’t serve that because of covid. I would be ok with that except for the fact that they still serve salad if you pay extra for it lol ...so honestly their excuse makes no sense. It’s just a way for them to save a buck on every order while still maintaining their prices! I’ve been to several other restaurants for take out during this time and all of them include the sides with your meal like they should. Apparently Covid doesn’t effect items they charge you for but only effects the “free” items you’re supposed to be getting included with your meal 🤷🏻‍♀️

You like Persian food then take a ride to Darband and have the best authentic Persian cuisine in GTA. I've no words to explain the quality of this restaurant. Super Delicious Persian food ..!!No matter you like it or not but don't forget to order 'Kebab Kobidah'. I never had such tender and juicy kebabs since I've moved to Canada.

They make the best persian food ever! I have tried so many places, but their Koobideh is #1. The restaurant itself is very small and busy all the time, so I prefer to do takeout rather then dine in. I have also catered from them many times and they provide great customer service and quality food! Recommend 100%!!

The Kalepache dish is cooked to perfection! The only problem is that they serve it with Pita bread!!! Sangak or Barbari bread is a must with this dish! The waiters are nice and fast. A Cozy place to have a Saturday or Sunday brunch with your family and friends!

Food was delicious. Ample amount of rice and the chicken and beef were extremely flavourful. We also got the spinach dip which worked really well with the bread and rice!Service was okay. They forgot to give us menus for the longest time so we had to flag someone down. Also had to flag them down multiple times for water refills. Overall it was a good experience though!

Went there for kalleh patche breakfast and it was super delicious! Friends also had halim and that was also very tasty. Tea is steeped Persian style and portions are generous...Flavours are just right!The actual restaurant is nothing fancy and service is not good. As long as you go there for the food don’t expect anything else, you’ll be just fine.
