We had not had Turkish food before. The waitress was also the owner/manager. She was helpful explaining everything and we had a terrific lunch. This is in a shopping center - plenty of free parking. Extensive menu. Nice ambiance and a very very good salad bar with all kinds of persian, greek and turkish treats to try.

We went for lunch on a Friday while visiting Del Mar. Huge portions. Great wait staff. We ordered for one and had enough for 3 meals. Super delicious!

Alborz is a very warm, inviting, family-friendly restaurant set up for small to very large groups. The food is a mixture of Persian and Greek cuisine with enough for both vegetarians and great for meat eaters. They had pretty good entertainment and it was the perfect place to celebrate a graduation.

This was just ok. Service was nice. The interior was ok and it's in a strip mall next to a Laundry mat. I won't return

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.

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.

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
