    This was our first visit to Herby - a Persian restaurant that is a fresh and original addition to the mix of restaurants on the Danforth. We were very impressed - terrific attentive service. Our server helped us decide what to try for our first time. The food was delicious. Very generous portions. The chef/owner stopped by our table for a chat. A memorable evening and I highly recommend Herby

    The first time my partner and I had Herby's, we ordered it thru UberEats. We liked it so much we decided to go to the place itself and try more of their food. Parking is tricky (but that's to be expected since it's on the Danforth), but everything else is superb! We ordered the dinner for two which includes 2 appetizers, 1 koobideh, 1 chicken kebab, rice, dessert and a pot of Persian tea. Food was really delicious, my favourite though was their saffron and pistachio ice cream - I even got a cup to go! Service was also very good. Our server was very attentive and offered us more bread and rice when she noticed we finished our first serving. I liked my experience at Herby's so much that I even recommended it to my friends and family! Overall we will come back again!

    The warm reception in what seems to be a family owned restaurant , coupled with a varied delicious menu ( we had vegetarian dishes that were unique and very well prepared) means will return again -second time in two years but will will return sooner Simple decor is offset by attentive polite service

    The food here was great, especially the Loobia Polo and the Pomegranate Ice Cream. The only (slight) miss was the Lamb Shank. The rice and flava beans weren't quite as soft as we would have liked. Still pretty good though.

    I chose this restaurant to celebrate my 40th birthday, and it was such a lovely experience. The staff were very kind and understanding, and the food was amazing. The whole table was amazed by the thought put into the flavors and presentation of each dish. The restaurant is wonderfully decorated, and has a peaceful, warm, and inviting mood. I will definitely go there again. This restaurant is a beautiful example of true hospitality.

    I'm at the restaurant as we speak with my partner and we're both very impressed. Good ambiance and lovely service. I'm Iranian and have ordered my favourite dish, koobideh. It's a very simple skewer of minced lamb but it's not easy to find a good version. I'm very happy indeed. Jessie got khoresheh bademjan (eggplant stew) and it's also mighty tasty. Highly recommended!

    I generally don't leave reviews, but it was a must after dining at Herby's. I came with my wife for the first time on 03/20/22, and the experience did not disappoint but exceeded all expectations. The service was excellent as our server allowed us to look through the excellent menu. We decided to get the "Sample Tray for 2", which is a must recommend if this is your first time, as it gives your a great perspective of what this restaurant has to offer. After we had our meal, we were greeted by the chef, which was surprising as it has become a unique dining experience today but very much welcomed. I look forward to returning with my wife so that we can try something new from their menu!

    Booked a reservation for Nowruz to experience the amazing dishes on the menu. Showed up and the chef had decided to take key items that one might expect to be available off the menu without notifying those who had made reservations for the night that things would be missing. Very disappointing - was really looking forward to the Piti and Tava. I think setting expectations when you’re deliberately taking that many items off the menu is reasonable. The server was lovely and the ambience great but we left to go eat elsewhere.

    HerbyResponded on March 24, 2022We’re apologize for your experience with us on the day. We’ll take sincere care of the issue. If you had time to give us a chance that you try our food, we would like to give you 20% off on your bill next time. Thank you so much for reaching us with review.

    This place is not your usual Persian restaurant. It combines authentic tastes with home cook quality and goes above and beyond the daily experience of food. The room is decorated with a beautiful painting and artefacts that set the mood just right. It’s like you’re transported to the source.
