We were visiting from Kansas and a friend brought us here. The Koobideh was moist and tender. Just the right amount of rice to not overwhelm the kabobs. Been familiar with Persian cuisine for over 30 years and never had ground chicken kabobs but it...More

The restaurant has an attractive interior decor. The service was initially nice and then non existent. It truly affected the meal in a negative way. We ordered an appetizer and each had the mixed rise with lamb shank. The order literally arrived 3-4 minutes after...More

Without reservations, our party of 6 got a table at this Persian restaurant in Belmont. Though it was a first for us, we realized we were late to the party. Diners of every demographic filled the grand high-ceilings, luxuriously paneled room enjoying the food they...More

I've been here numerous times, but rarely more than once/year. The restaurant is always packed with folks from the Mideast region, so I assume genuine cuisine. Mostly kebabs as mains. Whenever I've eaten here before I've always had lamb, which was tasty and my wife...More

We visited this restaurant for lunch and found it really busy for no reason. I think it’s only busy because there is not too many options in the area for Persian restaurants. The service is friendly but for the price we paid, we were not...More

Granted, you can get better Persian food in LA - which goes with a critical mass of immigrants from a given country - but locally, "Shalizaar" is one of the best. They have variety of food - not just kebabs, but also various lamb and...More

What a nice surprise. The ambience was very nice (if a little noisy due to several tables that were having waaaay too much fun). The service was attentive. The flavors were very unusual and the quantities plentiful. We tried the house made cucumbers (pickles). Very...More
