This was my 2nd time going to Herby! I enjoy the atmosphere and décor, it's well suited for Herby village. Our server was very sweet and professional. she made us feel welcomed and taken care of and well knowledgeable of the menu. We ordered some of the recommended appetizers and entrees. among those was the Herby’s Signature Cheese Koobideh. I am usually not a big fan of Koobideh dish, but this dish had a very unique and amazing taste and its worth dying for. The Persian Chicken Wings comes with an option of different sauce or plain, I recommend plain, the wings was well made, juicy and had a wonderful taste and smell on their own. We had tea and Persian Baklava Cake for dessert which is made in house. Super fluffy and served warm :). And tea was served in traditional and proper Persian glasses and saucers. I cant wait to go back. I finally found a restaurant that I would proudly take my friends to and show them how good Persian cuisine really taste.

Great food, good location. Hard to find parking but that's not their fault. Lots of options that I'd never had before and the service was good.

Service was good and people watching on the Danforth was great. We ordered two vegetarian stews - neither were warm and one was particularly disappointing. The bread came warm and their crunchy rice were great but overall disappointing won’t be coming back.

Excellent variety of meat and non-meat dishes - mains , appetizers , salads all exhibited Persian fare well - service was friendly and polite if a little less than flawlessly smooth…owner came out to see how we enjoyed - nice touch

Nice patio but the indoor ambience is more complete

My friend and I chose Herby because she's a vegetarian and it had a lot of options. The food was great, we both had rice and the girl working was so friendly. I'll definitely be back, I'm hoping in the fall to try some of the stews.

Amazing Persian food. We had a meal for 4 that let us try a lot from the menu. The kabobs and rice were yummy but the stews were the standout- a pomegranate chicken dish was particularly amazing- unique and yummy. Good wine list although with covid and lower number of diners I’d recommend getting a bottle vs glass to ensure its fresh.
The chef came out to say hi and was very kind. Glad to support this local business and we will be back. Much more interesting and delicious food than we were expecting!

I recommend Herby to all my friends!
I took my friend there for lunch to celebrate the opening of her new medical practice. The music was lovely, and there were real roses on the table -- big and pink and flawless! The service was quiet, competent and friendly -- as always. We ordered the Sample Platter for Two because I'd been telling my friend about Herby for so long, and wanted her to be able to try ALL the wonderful things she'd heard about. It was delicious and it was beautiful; every plate was a work of art. It was bountiful, too! My friend took home a doggy-bag for her family, and they loved it, so this one meal made a happy time for many people!
The Covid precautions were excellent. Covid-tracing is set up right at the door; hand sanitizer is provided; everyone is masked; the airflow is good in this restaurant, and the seating is such that no one need be in too-close contact with anyone else. I cannot recommend this fine place too highly. Javad makes everything with love, and it shows.

We enjoyed lunch-specials which are very good value and provide an excellent and economical introduction to highlights from the menu. We were new to Persian cuisine and were delighted with the complex and subtle flavours. The restaurant is nicely appointed and our server was charming and attentive. We look forward to the day when Herby can re-open for full service.

Cool little spot on the Danforth with good service and great food. Noise level was acceptable for a Saturday night and all the dishes we ordered came out at the correct temperature in a timely fashion. Wine list could be expanded but , what we had was very nice. Chef even came around to see how everyone were enjoying their meals. I would highly recommend this great little restaurant.

Herby gives a diner three essentials of a fully enjoyable restaurant outing. The decor is tasteful and encloses something a Boomer appreciates in any restaurant: a level of quietude that allows for a low level of decibels. The food is delicious and the menu offers a broad selection of Persian dishes, and ours was excellent. Third, the service was gracious, friendly, informative and welcoming. I would recommend Herby to anyone interested in trying a national cuisine with which they may not have tasted.

The food was disappointing, and somewhat bland. We got two sharing platters between four of us and there was tons of food. The Ghormeh Sabzi was good, the fesenjoon was disappointing, and the gheymeh smelled like it had burned during cooking. The rice wasn’t quite right. The joojeh kabob was flavourless, but the koobideh was good. The dessert honey cake was quite nice. The service was good, but nothing to write home about. It was nice that the chef came out after dinner to greet each table.
