And important and noteworthy about this restaurant to note, too, is that they use all fresh ingredients and no artificial ingredients or additives, including no meat tenderizers.
Many people have said that Reza’s is the best restaurant in the city, not only because of the great food but also because of the great locations, one of which (the W Ontario Street location) is lake view. The wine selection is really great, too, which you may want to enjoy with your great Persian, Middle-Eastern, or Mediterranean food!
