We arrived for lunch on Sunday after calling to make a reservation. They said none was required. The restaurant was busy but not full. The servers were frantically moving about, dashing back and forth often without purpose: not bringing plates or delivering good or filling...More

This restaurant outside looks are misleading. Once you cross the door, you are in wonderful place with nice and original decor. The food tastes great and the selection is very wide. It is one of our preferred places to enjoy lunch or dinner.

I live not far, this is where we go when I’m too lazy to cook. Nice ambiance and good service and, of course, delicious food. Excellent kabobs. Don’t miss Eggplant appetizer.

I've been 3 times. Tried chicken, kubideh and filet kabobs. Each was best I've ever had. I'm from out of town, but if it was near home, I'd go all the time!

We arrived around 8pm on a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed with a crowd waiting to be seated. We were seated rather quickly, presumably because there were only two of us, a table for two opened up, and the others were in larger...More

Chelokababi doesn't look like much from the outside, but the ambiance inside is upscale and charming. Definitely the Persian theme going on. Service was great, and the food was excellent. I had the daily special, and my wife had the breast of chicken kabob with...More
