Excellent Persian food. Their koobideh with rice or sandwich is great. Also, the Ghormeh Sabzi is awesome, as well as the Mast o Moosir. The service is amazing with very friendly staff. I highly recommend it.

This was our 2nd visit to this restaurant and it is still one of my favorite Persian Kabob places in DC. Kevin, our server was great. Fast, friendly and responsive. If your used to Moby Dick, try this place. It's several notches above.

Another OUTSTANDING meal at Alborz. The kabobs are always full of flavor and juicy, The rice is amazing. Everything on the menu is tasty. If you like YOGURT...try the Must-a-Moosir appetizer!!!

We had the hamburger and chicken kabob. Both were very good. Service was great. House salad was iceberg. Bread was served room temp but was delicious with the kabob plate. The hot tea as mentioned was awesome!
