Never have a bad experience here. The food is on the dot and portions are just right. I come here regularly because the price is great along with great customer service. I'm just bummed I didn't find this place sooner.

The absolutely best kept secret in Burbank!

Just had the lunch special. Chicken breast kabob. A must try. Not like other kabob places. I would definitely return! They also advertise no hormones or preservatives in their meats!

Friendly staff, delicious food; just a tad overpriced for the quality.


Chicken breast kabobs, eggplant dip and lentil soup are my family's favorites here but everything we've tried are very good.

This is my mother's favorite Mediterranean restaurant and she doesn't venture out of her Korean American bubble... she says that the beef is so soft and tender... and she doesn't quite find that anywhere else.

Great fast food kabobs just pre-order with a time so you avoid waiting for the kabobs to cook. Great customer service family operated.

If your looking to have some Iranian kebab this is the best place. Great food, great service. The place was super clean. I was greeted politely .First of all, the lady who was on the cashier was so sweet. She was patient while I was choosing my dish. She was very friendly and helpful with her recommendations of plates on the menu. I ordered lule kabab and vegetable kabab. I've never been a huge fan of the ground beef kebabs but Cafe Elegante makes them juicy and tasty. I'm a fan now. The meat and vegetables were so fresh. I was given free " Egplant dip" which was the best. The prices also are ao reasonable .Definitely going back.

We had a wonderful dinner on February 28, 2019. The food was so delicious, the service was wonderful and the portions were so large we all took leftovers home to enjoy the next day.

Too expensive!!! Only one skewer and the taste is not what I've expected. Zancu chicken has the same and for the same price and is way much better there, I can get more for my money, and more yummy at zancu chicken. Definitely I will not come back to cafe elegante. Besides their service is not good either. I was thirsty and and they didn't even give me a free soda and when I was at zancu they offered me soda while I was waiting for my food! Forget cafe elegante no more!!!

Why didn't I stop by this place sooner!!! I always pass by this establishment and have always wondered how it is..after the meal I had I will definitely be back! We ordered the following items to go: Soltani with Basmati Rice, Luleh Kabob with Basmati rice, Chicken Luleh with sour cherry rice, and an order of hummus. Hummus was great! It came with a pack of sliced pita and a side of sumac...Not too lemony like other places! The rice on all 3 entrees was fluffy and perfectly seasoned! Meats were fresh and tender! They each also came with a roasted tomato and my favorite:onions and parsley!! The lady who handed me the food was also very nice and greeted me warmly. The place had a homey and calm feel to it. We cant wait to go back, will definitely try the eggplant dip next time! Thank you Cafe Elegante!

Overall: Pleasantly surprised with the quality of food and service. I would return and recommended to friend and family. Service: The server was attentive and patient. I liked that this seemed to be family establishment. When I walked in the staff or maybe family was sitting at a table. It was after lunch but before dinner. They immediately got up and treated us with exceptional service. They made us feel like family. Food: Delicious chicken kabobs. Big portions. The sample appetizer was generous and fresh. Ambiance: Great music. Relaxing and laid back but still nice enough for a date night. Bonus: I was also very impressed when a gentleman who seemed like the owner walked to the kitchen and greeted his cooking staff. I heard him asking them how they were doing in a genuinely kind and caring way.

Very pleasant cafe. I started coming to this place 13 years ago and I am NEVER disappointed by the friendliness, the service, the portions, the prices, the quality - highly recommended.

Mari Gaitan-Yammine

Delicious food and service is A+


It is the most wonderful place for Lunch or Dinner!I wish I could give 10 stars! It is always nice to see the same owner, the same waitress over many years.We ordered Ashtereshteh soup (Garbanzo and pinto beans, lentils, spinach, parsley, noodles and sour yogurt).Last time we ordered lentil soup. Both are delicious!For entrees we ordered Luleh and beef kebabs with the mixed rice, one with Lima beans and another one mixed with Barberries.The food was so delicious.We have tried different things over the years here and were never disappointed.On the top of that, the service is the very best and everyone is so nice and pleasant. Highly recommend!!!Note: they are closed on Sundays.


Great food and even better prices for their lunch specials. Always great service, specially by the daughter of the owner. The food is great as well. Not the most upscale looking place but again, they have great prices and food.

The owner, Greg, is wonderful! He is so friendly and welcoming every time my friends and I eat at his restaurant. We usually order the sampler platter and a variety of the kebob platters so that we can try a lot of different things. The eggplant dip appetizer is probably my favorite thing to get. It's so simple, yet so delicious. All of the kebabs that we tried were tasty. The service never disappoints. I'll definitely be back!

Everyone is super nice and the food is very good


This is a very pleasant place to have a nice mediterranean meal with friends and family. The food is tasty and the service is top notch.. Love their kebabs and rice mixed with sour cherry or with Barberries.. . Note: closed on Sundays.

Great falafels, moist and crunchy with a side of hummus. Greek salad, stuffed grape leaves are also a good pick.

Cafe Elegante has delicious Persian food/kababs at reasonable prices. The restaurant has an older decor and feels cheap but if you can ignore that then you'll enjoy great food. Its in the corner of a plaza but easy to see from Glenoaks BLVD, a major street in Burbank, and visible from Lincoln. There's plenty of parking in the lot and the streets. It has a fee tables for outside seating. The yogurt with cucumber is my favorite appetizer.!

It is like eating at your friends home. Greg and Lili (his daughter) are the best. The food is spectacular made to order fresh and Yummy. I recommend the eggplant dish the red one. Their kabobs are out if this world. I love the Burberry rice
