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

We had the Chicken Breast - Barg and Joojeh - Koobideh combos. I liked the Barg, and the Joojeh better than the rest. Nice place with a quiet atmosphere.

I had a dinner with my colleagues for business. The female server is from Iran and she was friendly and helpful. The assortment of appetizer was average. In terms of the meats for main course, the lamb was good while chicken was a bit dried. The price was reasonable and this restaurant might be sometimes an option.

As the title says. Chelokebabi is not the cheapest option around as it comes to Kabobs in South Bay, however, consistent quality and best taste here beats other options. I like barg and koobideh here which tastes a lot better than the cheaper koobideh places around.
