What a treat! Some Kubideh skewers of seasoned ground beef cooked over open flame with excellent rice and the traditional fire roasted tomato. A lot of places offer this (yes they have chicken, lamb, "steak" and vegetarian dishes) but this is particularly good. Simple and good and reasonably priced. Try it and make your tummy sing!

Wanted to try Persian food, and North Vancouver is definitely a good place for it. Zeitoon has nice decor, friendly service. Ordered the Fesenjoon Stew - very tender chicken chunks in a puree of walnuts and pomegranate. Unfamiliar tastes which I enjoyed at first, but eventually the richness and the sameness did me in (and visually, it wasn't particularly appealing).... More

First time here and definitely not the last! The kabobs were so soft and the broiled eggplant starter was to die for. Wonderful trip to an exotic land 😄

Excellent food! Lamb Sultani has a heaping portion perfect for sharing. Service was mediocre. Very clean, family friendly atmosphere

Today I went to zeitoon restaurant but when my food arrived I was shocked to find a long piece of hair in my food.and when we confronted the waitress about it she was very rude. Over all not the best restaurant I have been too. Would not recommend this to anyone.

Bit more expensive than surrounding Iranian restaurants in mid-Lonsdale area but food is very tasty. Would recommend. For good value for the money, we usually go to Nayeb by 18th and Lonsdale. Food is quite tasty and moist.

One of the better places to grab Persian food in Vancouver, prefer zeitoon over most but the downtown location seems to be better than Lonsdale
