Worth the wait because the food is delicious! Small restaurant that offers 5 outdoor tables (1 of which is a large table that can seat 6). Spacing between the small tables are fairly good distanced and cleaning is done between customers. Staff is nice but busy as she is taking orders thru phone, playing cashier, taking order and serving food at the patio and clearing dishes and wiping tables (If you are in no rush it's not so bad) Hubby craved some Persian food so we went to Anar, they have opened for a while now and have kept up with their quality throughout this time during the pandemic. As lunch we ordered the beef/lamb kabob served with rice and salad. The kabob is juicy and flavourful. The mix of beef and lamb is a great combo if you like the texture of ground beef with a hint of lamb in the end of your bite, their seasoning never overpower so you can taste the meat. Saffron rice is perfect pair with the kabob. Salad was with just the right amount of dressing (not for anyone that don't like pickled item in their salad). Although they are not giant portions but they are definitely not stingy! I also order their lemonade, very refreshing with the mint and added chai seeds. As usual, we finished our lunch with Bastani Faloddah, a shaved ice dessert that consisted rose water and honey and topped with their ice cream, the aroma of the dessert will linger in your mouth for a while. Only reason for 4 star is hand sanitizer is not provided upon entering. Tables were wiped but not chairs, the menu is outside on a music stand where anyone walk by can flip (nice gesture) but not at this time where COVID can be spread as I did not see disinfecting of the menu during the duration of my stay. Bottom line isI would still be going back and order from Anar :)

Growing up on the North Shore, we had our picks of good Persian restaurants. Finding one in the Vancouver area was a bit harder until now. Was in Richmond today and finally decided to do a take out at Anar in Steveston. Anar's food is delicious and authentic. Probably the best Persian food I have tasted in a very long time and will certainly be back. Ordered by phone and was informed pick up would be ready in 15 mins: Kashk a Bademjoon ($8.99): grilled eggplant and turmeric mixed with whey and mint and served with light and fluffy Persian bread. The grill aroma on the eggplant was amazing and the mint popped with each bit. Perfectly balance with turmeric for the golden yellow colour and olive oil. Loghmeh Kabob ($17.99): two skewers of seasoned mixed beef and lamb and served with rice and tomato. Perfectly seasoned and grilled. The rice was light and fluffy and so addicting. Due to health orders, the dining room is closed but they have a small patio with 4-5 tables. On a sunny day, you can do a take out and hit up the near by Garry Point Park or Fisherman's Wharf.
