“A collaboration between the Mohyeddin siblings, this family run Iranian eatery and commissary is in a decidedly modern room with Persian accents throughout. A destination in Toronto’s Queen Street West neighbourhood, Banu is serving up the very best of Persian inspired cocktails, cuisine and culture.”

“In short, they are only poets while they are writing their poetry. When they have finished writing, they turn back into greedy, indulgent, oppressive, short-sighted, miserable, and envious people. So I do not believe their poems. I prize honesty in life, and when I find these people making fists and various claims – in their poems and essays – I get disgusted, and I doubt their veracity. I think to myself, perhaps it is only for a plate of rice that they are screaming.” - Forough Farrokhzad
