First time there and I will definitely be back! The skewers are all excellent filet mignon, lamb, chicken and basmati rice are the best! The appetizers, on the other hand, were bland ....but still a 5 star restaurant for its authenticity...For desert, by all means order the ice cream it is to die for!

A small hole in the wall. Not so nice from the outside but very, very nice on the inside. The food is wonderful. Prices are a bit high. It is also very cramped.

Nice and friendly people. Tasty and well served dishes. Nicely decorated, clean and fast service. I must have eaten there 4 or 5 times within the week I stayed at the Wild Palms.

The selections are always tasty. The service was okay, we had to ask a second time for a couple things. The Chicken, Veggie and Steak Filet Kabob were all tasty. We enjoy the atmosphere.

Chelokababi is ridiculously good Persian food. I ordered via DoorDash and had the chelo kabab kobideh (extra butter) and the middle eastern plate. The portions were substantial (plenty of leftovers for tomorrow!!) and everything tasted homemade. I will definitely be eating there again....and again and again.

I first went to Chelokabibi in 1975. At that time the restaurant was considerably smaller than it is today but the food has always been Excellent! Today the restaurant is much larger but the quality of this establishment had not changed. I have tried many other Persian restaurants in the bay area but I always come back to Chelokabibi

The menu is rich with options and everything on it is pretty delicious. Also the place has a very authentic vibe and feels like you've travelled into a persian world. 5 stars

A colleague and I went here for supper on a recent business trip. We were staying at the Wild Palms and the front desk suggested this as a great place to go. It was just about a block from the hotel so we walked to it. It is a nice, sit down, restaurant with a good sized menu. Our waitress... More

Dined here with 2 members of my team from work. We all ordered different options, and were each convinced that we'd "won" over the others in terms of the results. The food is delicious, the setting fairly quiet (making it easy to carry on a conversation) without feeling like you're in a library. Be warned that the rice portions served... More

I have been going to Ch since 1981 - actually arrived there by mistake & the young owner Mohseen invited me to stay to taste his mom's cooking! And I couldn't refuse as I am a famous Indian singer! It was simply fabulous! So I have known his whole family for 34 years & every time I am in the... More
