You will find all the popular Persian dishes on Shalizaar's menu, rich in taste and aroma. Watch how fresh Persian bread is baked and brought to your table. Dont forget to order a plate of home grown herbs and cheese to have with your bread. This beautiful place owned and run by a couple, served by friendly and courteous people.... More

Actually we ate there when it first opened and found everyting to be perfect. Being we live nearby, we have noticed that ALWAYS their parking lot is full and so is the street parking, so something must be good......

Excellent Persian food! I had their Kubideh and Ash soup! Surprise surprise: they serve Panir Sabzi as part of every meal! Service was pretty decent, even though the place was packed! I will be back!!!

Went here in 2013 - although it seems a little plastiky, it was an enjoyable experience. Waiter helped us pick our food, it arrived quickly enough, and it tasted great!

This restaurant has terrible customer service and even though the food is not bad, this kind of service will prevent me from going back. Our server was very rude and treated us like we were not welcome there. This was a party of six, a birthday celebration, and they ruined it by being snooty and rude. I will never come... More

We tried to go to Shalizar in Belmont and were extremely disappointed with the cold reception. We found the host extremely indifferent at Shalizar and frankly arrogant. We got there before 6 pm with many available tables and the host (older Persian man) was talking about an hour wait and was rude which is so unlike the Persian culture and... More

I hosted a birthday party for my BFF's 40th birthday. It was an all-girl dinner party of 11 people. Their portions are huge which made for lots of food for everyone. They could have been a little more attentive but they were super busy and we were all having a great time that we didn't notice too much. I highly... More

The fresh made hot bread and herb are my favorite. The stews taste home made. Shalizar is by far the most decent Persian restaurant in the area.

It's not often you can experience excellent Persian food, service and Atmosphere like at the Shalizaar. For several of us it was our first experience there and I must say it was outstanding! The appetizers we freshly made and generous portions. Very nice Wine selections and reasonable. I will definitely go back when in the area.
