The service is wonderful and the food is beautifully seasoned. I had a pomegranate and walnut sauce on my entre that was heavy and delicious. There is one vegetarian dish on the menu. My husband is more of an American style food eater so this isn't his favorite place. Our daughter and son love it. They had kabobs that were... More

We were there visiting North CA. Had a dinner there that made us to come back and repeat our pleasant experience. We had a rainbow trout with Persian rice mixed with vegetables. The waiters and owner were quite respectful and hospitable. The inside is great too.

I grew up in Tehran, Iran so I have always loved good, traditional Iranian/Persian cuisine -- specifically, chelo kebab. Shalizaar in Belmont did not disappoint. All of my "must haves" were on the menu and prepared completely to my taste. My only slightly negative comment was their traditional bread - baked in their oven on premises but the dough seemed...

Very nice clean feel in this restaurant. Portions are generally large. Our group of 5 had the Cornish hen, lamb shank, lamb loin and a variety of kabobs. Entrees are served with saffron flavoured long grain rice or salad and a grilled tomato. Food was correctly seasoned and tasted great. They served bread with a bowl full of fresh mint,... More

Quality and taste of the food is mediocre at best! All our friends told us this is the best Persian restaurant in bay area, not sure why! Coming from Chicago I think people here lost their tastebuds or have very low expectations from food in general. The only thing better than other restaurants here is the decoration and ambiance. Most... More

this place has good Persian food. Just that the serving was just too much for a single person like me. :)

I felt like having a Persian stew and asked for a recommendation. I was pointed towards the Ghormeh Sabzi, which is stewed beef, kidney beans, spinach and, according to the menu, sauteed herbs on the grounds that it was "a bit more spicy than the others". I also asked for a wine they would pair with it. They suggested the... More
