Tonight I went to Alborz with my family, we requested no seasoning on the chicken kebob and they told us we shouldn’t go to restaurants if we want no seasoning!!! And I asked if they have lower fat yogurt she said “you should make it yourself!! LOL It was amazing how rude, unprofessional and weak management they have. If you have family member with stomach problems and you asking for no seasoning you shouldn’t go to Alborz restaurants.
My new favorite Berkeley restaurant. The service was very very good (a little leisurely for our theatre going needs, but it was fine). We were given the option of replacing half or all of the rice in our entrees with salad. The salad alone was fantastic - fresh and beautiful, not overdressed. Four of us shared the combo appetizer platter, I had a cup of the Asah Reshteh (soup - VERY filling) and the Cornish Hen kabob. Tender and large portions. One friend had the salmon kabob, another the Baked chicken with fantastic saffron rice mixed with nuts, orange peel, and more. We had to try the Faloodeh (frozen sweet rose water with rice noodles) - light and refreshing. I can't wait to go back!
We finaly made it to their new Walnut Creek location. I have to say, it was a nice looking restaurant and it also will have an outdoor area once the weather gets a little warmer. As for the food, my expectations were much higher. My soltani was very cold as if it sat there for 6 or 7 minutes before they brought it out and they left out the grilled tomato on everyones dish. Service could have been better. Young and not experienced waiters.
We went there last night and loved it so much we are returning tonight. Our waiter was delightful and the service was prompt and friendly. The ghormeh sabzi was the best I've had in a restaurant. And the prices were extremely reasonable for the food.
We enjoyed both a lunch and dinner at Alborz last week. The food at both meals was wonderful; some of us enjoyed kebabs while others tried the less usual soups, salads and stews. And don't pass up the Persian ice cream. When I am back in Berkeley, I will definitely return.
Service at lunch was prompt; dinner a bit more relaxed. The food and the charm of the staff made it all worth it.
