My family and I visited this location for lunch and loved the decor. The menu offers quite a few choices and the wait staff will be happy to explain what comes with each dish if you have any questions. All appetizers are divine from "Sabzi" (herbs/feta/walnut/bread) to "mast musir" (Shallots/greek yogurt) to "Kashk Bademjan" (fried eggplants/onions with yogurt sauce). For entree, we ordered bone-in cornish hen kabab with rice and grilled tomatoes-so delicious!
I promise you after your first visit, you will be back again and again!

Majority of Persian dishes taste their best when you have them with rice. This place offers a variety of stews (with a few choices for vegetarians)- stews are mostly served and eaten with place rice. I like the Sultani Kabob which is a combination of Beef Kabob and Koubided (minced meat on a skewer) - please use Sumak ( a maroon color powder- in a shaker at all tables). Bon appetite.

Although I have limited experience with Persian food, I've come here twice at the invitation of a good friend with a Persian family, so presmably this is a good example of good Persian food. I am particularly fond of the eggplant appetizer and of the koobideh kabob. Chicken koobideh was not available on the night that we visited, so I was disappointed to miss trying that, but maybe this just gives a good excuse to go again.

The first time I have tried Persian good. I am now a fan. Wife and I visited the Walnut Creek location. Very nice atmosphere and pleasant service. I had the house soup (can't remember or spell the name). I loved it, but I am a soup fan. I have the tasty and tender shishkabob ! Wife had the beet salad and FESENJOON! FESENJOON is w wonderfully yummy dish. Freshly crushed walnuts simmered in pomegranate sauce with chicken - worth the visit - will definetly have it again. I will visit Alborz again.

This is a pretty good restaurant. The atmosphere is excellent. The food was good but you can get good Persian food at other restaurants in Tri-Valley area for lower prices. The service was a bit disappointing and somewhat slow. The biggest disappointment was the side dishes. Persian food usually comes with a plate of green veggies, bread, and onions. What we got was a couple of pieces of butter and a spoonful of onion shavings. This is unacceptable. Given the price they charge for the food I think they should be able to splurge and provide the customer with a bit of mint, cilantro, a couple of pieces of radish and a quarter wedge of onion. I would have given them an excellent rating if it wasn't for this ridiculous bit of cheapness.
