From cultural aspect, food was considered to be
an art providing enjoyment of body and mind.
When the owners of Darvish first thought about embarking on the journey of becoming restaurateurs, they had one goal in mind - to be able to give everyone a chance to sit down, have a meal and be taken back to the nostalgic feelings of a home cooked meal. It was due to his initial thought and the ongoing consistent implementation of it that the homemade cookings of Darvish have been drawing in both Persian and non Persian clientele since the summer of 1985.
The summer of 1985 was a very hard time for the owners of Darvish, given that they had recently left their home and felt a panging sense of homesickness. The only time the family felt somewhat at home, was when they were all huddled around the dinner table sharing a meal and trying to recreate a taste of home. It was in fact over dinner one night that Darvish was born. The conversation was centralized around the idea that a good meal, and good company are all that is needed. This sparked the idea of bringing just that to the masses.
Our menu ranges from a wide variety of persian appetizers, kababs, stews, deserts, and more.
We are Committed to using the finest ingredients in our recipes.
This is one of the best restaurants I've been to in Toronto! The restaurant owners were very kind to me and the people I came with, setting the tone for a friendly atmosphere. The menu offers a range of traditional Persian dishes with Halal meat and some vegetarian options. I'm excited for the next time - and all the times after - that I come back!
The pomegranate walnut stew was excellent. At first I thought it a little bit sweet but after a couple of bites I really understood it. The subtle pomegranate taste with the very nicely seasoned sauce and chicken and walnut. Yum.
Very good, well-presented food with an interesting menu. Alcoholic drinks also available. Friendly service. Home-cooking. Well patronised by locals - always a good sign. Will go there again and again when In Toronto
