Reviews for Alborz Restaurant

The food is decent but the owner is a misogynistic you-know-what. The restaurant was dark and empty and the owner was sitting hanging out with his two friends. It felt strange like I was intruding, and a customer shouldn't have to feel that way. Duh! He also has a really rude demeanor. He acts like he's doing you a favor, and not the other way around. Very arrogant and ridiculous. If I'm a paying customer, I also don't want to have to put up with a restaurant owner full review

I was craving some Barg Kabob and called them to place an order. The owners were super responsive, asked me about the cook level (I asked for well done, which surprised him haha), and gave me an estimate wait time to pick up. The kabob was really delicious and the tomatoes and rice were fresh. Would definitely recommend this place! According to the owner, the meat is halal/zabiha. Not sure about delivery but they are open for takeout.

I'm so happy that Alborz decided to reopen in Berkeley! I've been a fan for many years. My husband and I would travel to all the different locations throughout the Bay Area. The restaurant is pretty large. If you want you can start off with having a drink at the bar. They always start with complementary bread and butter. My favorite item is the Koobideh two skewers of seasoned ground beef mixed with onions and rice. The meat is always so juicy and the rice is always full review
