We chose Shalizaar to celebrate our dear friends' birthdays, two days apart. We are fairly picky when it comes to treating our friends, and birthdays. I must say Shalizaar surpassed our expectation.

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......
