although this is an upmarket persian restaurant, the value for money is not so great. The food is always good, not exceptional, but always well presented and consistent in quality. The wine list is OK, but again priced higher than the value of the wines. We have been a few times, and although... read more

I go to Shalizar every time I'm in the Bay Area to have Gormeh Sabzi (lamb/beef stew with parsley, fenugreek and lime). I've brought friends and they've all enjoyed their meals as well, Great atmosphere and good service. Convenient to Hillsdale and the highway (Belmont Ave exit).

Shalizaar is incredibly inviting and visually appealing. The decor is nice to look and the environment is very inviting. The food was quite good and very fresh. I had the combo kabobs and enjoyed the beef much more than the chicken as the meat had more flavor. I would eat here again and look forward to trying something new.

Three of us enjoyed a lovely lunch of authentic Persian food. The restaurant has earned many awards. An interesting assortment of flat bread, soft cheese, fresh herbs, and walnuts started our meal. Two of us had koolibeh and the other lamb, all delicious. The wait staff were quite attentive, except for being slow to bring coffee after the meal. The... More

A friend invited me to this beautiful restaurant for lunch. I had the usual Kubideh and it was just as you could find it in Iran. The Naan was delicious too. Even though the restaurant was full to this capacity our order was prepared and brought to us in a good time.

The restaurant was not crowded on a Monday. there was no reason for this delay. The server was very upset that I asked for another glass of water since there was a... More

In San Mateo area. Does not look like a persian restaurant but the food and service was excellent. A bit pricy but worth it to get good quality.

The service was amazing. Me and my girlfriend came here after I landed in US after a 11 hour flight. And even after half a day crammed in a can with the worst food in the world this food was only average and it cost far more than I would ever have imagined. I am not really a rice and... More
