Never been to a Persian restaurant before and my first time couldn't be better. The food is amazing, the decoration is really Persian, the staff is very friendly and the price is ok. Worth a visit.

If you love middle eastern kabobs, this is the place for you. Delicious varieties of kabob are on the menu daily. The restaurant atmosphere is cozy and warm. If you are a regular, you fast become the restaurant personnel's friend. They know you by name. My favorite kabob is lamb. This restaurant is located off of El Camino Real in... More

Expecting good things given previous reviews and recommendation from hotel. One starter appeared after main cours and the Coocomsabzi needed some yoghurt dressing with it. Not managed to finish this before main course came up. Clearly a timing issue as my rice was co,d that the pat of butter on it did not melt. Falafel and humour had unpleasant taste.

I'm writing this while still seated enjoying an amazing meal. The hummus is quite possibly the best I've ever had, and my wine glass is far fuller than a typical pour = happy me 😊 I'm also still working (but definitely slowing down because portions are generous) on the house specialty chicken kabob; it's tender, juicy, and perfectly seasoned.

I've been going to Chelakababi prior to the birth of my daughter, and now she's ten. The place still offers excellent kabab koobideh - so tender, juicy and flavorful, and still at a reasonable price. The owner is a wonderful man. I forgot my wallet once when I was there with my young daughter, and he told me not to... More

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.
