Good location

The location is good but the food was average. I are at this restaurant 2 years ago and the food was better. The service was okay. Best day to go is Friday. They have a DJ and belly dancer. The place was decorated very well.

Our favorite dishes are their Fesenjon Koresh, their appetizers, their Chicken Barg and Kebobs, their Baclava and cofee, etc. Their menu is extensive in Persian and Greek food. And the owners cannot be harder working and kind.

Been here numerous times and I believe the food is great and authentic, its always on our "Friday lunch" rotation and everyone seems to enjoy it. When you get the owners (or at least I believe they are) then the service is amazing. The other staff is not so enthusiastic about helping out though and it really irritates me, they... More

The Service: Only one server today, it is a small restaurant so we could always get her attention. We had 3 hours lunch and they never rush us to pay. The owner is at the restaurant, very sweet man. :D The Food: HUGH portion! Perfect to share~ Love all the beef dish (both grilled & stew), meat is very tender.... More

This Persian/Greek restaurant calls Alborz. It is located at 2672 Delmar Heights RD and run by unprofessional family. It used to be a place that i go once a month for different occasions in our community and my recent visit for sure was the last one. Just last weekend, I was invited to a party and ordered my food .... 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.

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 could have half... More

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
