I don't even know where to begin? I brought my family to Alborz for dinner on Christmas Eve, and I felt like I was in the Greek version of the scene from Christmas Story when the family goes to the Chinese restaurant. What I thought would be a quiet dinner, was anything but quiet. They had live music which exceeded... More

Three of us shared two meals and an appetizer and got stuffed. All meals were delicious, and the spiced yogurt was great.

I had chicken which I felt was overcooked and poorly prepared.The humus was wonderful. The service was very good. They have some nice beers on tap.

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.

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.
