Great zereshk polo!

Hands down, this place serves the best Zereshk Polo! I've since moved from San Diego to the east coast and it is nearly impossible to find a good Persian restaurant with some of the dishes you find at Alborz. Yes, it does seem a little pricy for lunch, but the portion size is large enough that you... read more

Alborz is in a strip mall on Del Mar Heights Rd. On the outside the restaurant looks unassuming but once inside the decor is very Middle Eastern with a nice ambiance. I love the gyro salad with the fresh ingredients and the flavorful gyros. The service is professional and very nice.

Lots of vegetarian options, reasonable prices, large portions and great service. The veggie kabobs and the veggie soup were amazing, and the hummus was the best we've ever had. The decor is very nice too! We will definitely be back.

I tried this place for the first time last week, for a "to go" order. My wife called it in and it was ready when they promised. I thought she was going to order me the lamb shank, but she ordered the lamb kabobs instead. When the owner saw my disappointment, he immediately ran to the kitchen and brought me... More

We were visiting some friends in San Diego & they took us to Alborz Restaurant in Del Mar. Food was okay but the service was on the slow side. There was nice live music there that took our attention away from the slow service. We ordered different foods, Dolmas, Kabab, Mediterranean salad & shared. They were all delicious but the... More

Excellent tasting food and a large menu, but very expensive. Good spot if you want to impress someone. You can get lower priced Persian food elsewhere, but I guess you are also paying for the very nice atmosphere.

Ate lunch there on a Saturday afternoon in Dec with family. All the waitstaff and cooks were Spanish, which should have been an alarm right there. The lentil soup was good and the salad was fresh. The main dishes were just OK, nothing to write home about. I have had much better Persian food at a lot lower prices. The... More

We all went there for dinner. Food was alright but service wasn't that great. Restaurant was clean & ambiance was nice. Overall it was okay but they need to improve service with a more friendly attitude.

It was the first time I ate Spanikopita that I didn't like. There was a spice in there that I didn't care for, but my husband was fine with it, and he ate my lunch. The vegetarian soup was delicious, and the service was good.

I've been here many times when I was a younger. Really looking forward to come back but the experience was horrible. I don't know if they changed people who were working from them.. But the waitresses were rude and not acceptable. I asked for bread because it was hard as rock.. My soup didn't even come before my entree.. I... More
