We had a very good time at Rayhoon restaurant. Staff are super friendly and they serve good quality Persian food. Owner himself is always there to make sure that the quality of service and food is satisfactory to the customers. We definitely will go back there again.

Yes, it's true !!! You can find authentic southern ghaliyeh maahi in Burlington, ON. Visited this restaurant twice in the last 2 months, and I can say it was definitely worth the 65 km drive. Very good food, especially ghaliyeh maahi, nice ambience, and nice and friendly staff. Recommended for sure 😀

This restaurant's service is good however the food was average, I have had better kebobs in most kebob shop. The restaurant is located in a Village square, and the surrounding is very pretty.

My wife and I recently had dinner here on a Saturday night. Restaurant was cold throughout so the comfort factor whilst eating was poor. In fact, we rushed through eating. The atmosphere was noisy and crowed. There was a family behind us at a large table with strollers and small children . Not recommended for an intimate one to one... More

I think if I could give half stars I'd give this place 3.5 stars. First off the bat they wrote our reservation down wrong - we asked for 7:30 and they put us as 8. Could have been bad but they weren't that busy and fit us in within just 5 minutes or so. To start we got the hummus,... More

Three of us went for a mid-week lunch in early December and were very pleasantly surprised. It was a first visit for all 3 of us. We went with traditional Persian dishes based on recommendations from the waiter (who we figured was also the owner) and the flavours were amazing! It was a little pricey for lunch, but worth it...

Very dear friends took us for dinner to this place. It is situated in a very picturesque area of Burlington, in The Village Center, which in itself provides an unusual ambiance. Once we entered the restaurant, we were greeted very warmly, and made to feel as though we were good friends invited into someone's home. The food was incredibly delicious,... More
