    Food was good. Thought the Chicken was a little bland. Beef was excellent. Very good size portions, rice was very nice. In a lot of restaurants The appetisers are quite small. Not here… they are a very generous size. The Sourdough and dips were perfect for 4, the bread was fresh and plentiful. The prices were fair. Our server was very nice and helpful and attentive. Overall a nice experience, this was our first time here and we would go again.

    11:15 am reservation for 4. The room was less than 1/4 full. It took almost 20 minutes before our server even addressed us. The food and beverages were all great. The server did not speak to us again until I asked for the bill. We enjoyed the food.

    We had the beef Gahliah which had a nice tender beef but the sauce was overpowered by the cilantro flavor that was in it so that was not our favorite. The lamb shank was delicious as well as the herbed rice and the cauliflower appetizer. Cocktails were great!

    Prompt service and food delivery. Very tasty dishes - we had the duck, lamb shank, and the beef stew. Pleasurable experience overall - the window seats at the front are drafty though. Not ideal for winter time.

    Went there a valentines date with my partner. When we got seated our server took awhile to take our order which seemed to be the theme that we were not getting noticed. Ordered the bread it was great with the dips. We ordered the lamb shank and cauliflower to followup. The food came a little lukewarm and wished it was alot warmer. The dessert we had rhe saffron icecream which was not good and only had one bite. We told our server that we did not want it and they still charged it on my bill. Overall food experience was okay but service was not good and quality was also not there. Deeply disappointed would probably not come again or recommend.

    Organized a group of ten people to celebrate my wife's birthday. The service was very good...helpful suggestions on food for the group. We wanted to share plates to maximize flavour experience, we were very pleased with all dishes on the menu. The service was prompt with no pretense. Food excellently prepared. Have a nice selection of wines as well.

    One of Vancouver's BEST restaurants BY FAR. Serving staff are VERY attentive, yet not overbearing. Cocktails are very creative and tasted like 5 or 6 more. Food was simply incredible with an adventurous menu, while not getting TOO creative (and not at all pretentious!). Overall - this is an 11 out of 10.

    Terrific Persian restaurant. Warm and inviting atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff who offered good tips to navigate the menu. The food was really interesting, beautifully prepared and presented. There was a 3 course menu with 3 choices per course for $45 dollars which was a steal. We were 3 people so we had one of everything. Yummy! My new fave Kitsalano restaurant!

    This is the 2nd time I went to Delara and took my friend to show how awesome my first experience was. However, it was very disappointing! The food was not as great. The service was okay. Don’t think I would go again for a pricey meal that’s not worth the money.
