“Always Consistent and Great Food”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Have been to this restaurant many times and great to find a place that has great food and consistent quality. Do not let the Persian cuisine scare you off - very, very tasty and lots of grilled chicken, lamb, and beef. The other night, and for the first time, I had the lamb shank. It was so good, I was sad that I could not eat the bone. Rice with saffron was an excellent complement.
Presentation is very simple, but elegant.

Thanks Darchin, staff and food continue to be great and for two with a few beer, less than $90.00.

“The best service in Vancouver”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Not only was the server attentive and exceedingly friendly, he was prompt and gave us a lot of information about the area and some directions to other tourist sites. The food was not what we expected, as part of the name on the building is grill and bar, but the smell was wonderful from the street and we thought we try something unique to Vancouver.

Walking in, the floor has gold metal tile and large old wood beams. The bar is a swirl of shades of brown and beige marble. The server was so welcoming and made sure that our water glasses were always full, that our meals were to our satisfaction and that we felt taken care of. The food was full of flavor. We had the hommous and naan to start and I then had the beef stew but tried the recommended chicken skewers off my friends plate and everything was amazing and tasty.

I'm so glad we stopped there. The prices were excellent and the atmosphere is very comfortable and down to earth. It really is the best service that we have received since we arrived. Thank you Darchin, for making our trip so much better!

“Just Great!”
Reviewed 4 July 2011

A newer restaurant in a tucked away part of the city - near the Granville Street Bridge at the bottom of Howe Street (and Pacific). Well worth the find. One of those authentic jewels for middle Mediterranean food and at very reasonable prices. Prices are very reasonable, with and the quality of the food is excellent. Lamb, chicken, steak on a kebob and lots of other good stuff too.

Thanks to the young fellow serving; very energetic and lively. This is actually my second time to Darchin - and both times, Just Great!
