Chelokababi is a nice Persian restaurant where you can have a very good quality Persian food. The restaurant interior is designed to match traditional Persian restaurant. Very nice and welcoming staff. Not very pricey compared to other Persian restaurants in Bay Area.

I stayed in Sunnyvale during my recent trip to the bay area-asked the hotel reception where i can get something to eat and they recommended this place. What a great surprise. The food was really good especially the beet and chicken kebobs. You should definitely try both. The service was fast and i also felt like their prices were not... More

I have gone here for birthdays and other special occasions, and I am always impressed. The food, service and price is amazing. The kebab's, appetizers, beverages and desserts are all to brag about. Great food, we will be back again.

Let's be honest about it, if you are on diet or looking for some fancy ambiance you should fine some place else. For Persian food, this is D-place. Food at Chellokababi is the best in its class in south bay, staff is fast and friendly. Kabobs and stew dishes are just delicious. Dont forget to try an appetizer or side... More

I was pleasantly surprised by both the nice atmosphere and the good food. Being in a little strip mall, I didn't expect much. The waiter was courteous and attentive. The lamb nicely prepared and tender. The rice was plentiful, although not quite as flavorful as I like. All-in-all, I had a pleasant dining experience and would go back.

Good Persian food, good service, reasonable prices (about $25-$30 per person). Try the rose water ice cream treat.

I went to this place because it was walking distance from my hotel. The restaurant is located in a strip mall but was neat and clean. Service was courteous, polite, nothing extraordinary. I'm a fan of Persian food, I especially like kobideh (sp?); but their version of it didn't excite me; flavor-wise, there was just nothing notable about it.
