    Don't be fooled by the strip mall location, the interior is very charming and the food delicious. We came here for afternoon tea and it was such a unique delight. We are definitely returning.

    This is hands down the best Persian cuisine restaurant in the area and I have dined at most of them. The food is great!! and their specialty teas are fantastic. I highly recommend it.

    Overall had a great experience with food and service. It was a special occasion as it was my husband’s B’day. I had a put a special note during the reservation too. But didn’t see any special attention paid to that by the restaurant staff. Just as a feedback, I would appreciate if we were offered a complimentary cake or dessert to celebrate B’day if that is part of the offering.

    Having afternoon tea at Chelokababi was an amazing experience! The restaurant has been in business for 45 years and only seven months ago they started offering afternoon tea. I was so impressed that they had only just begun serving tea since everything was so incredibly streamline and executed so well! I loved the pacing of the courses as they were served and the attention to detail, overall. It is a MUST if you are at all interested in an afternoon tea like no other!

    We enjoyed a delicious and fun evening at Chelo Kababi when my nephew visited from MD. He hadn't had Persian food in a while, so he was really looking forward to it. We ordered Koobideh, Salmon Kabab and Joojeh Kabab. Each of our dishes was scrumptious and tasty. We didn't wait too long, though we passed the time with Kashk Bademjan and Salad Shirazi. Our waiter was attentive and courteous. For dessert we had Persian Tea and Baklava with Pistachio Ice Cream, which was terrific! All in all, we thoroughly had a great experience. We are regulars to Chelo Kababi and will keep coming back, due to their consistency, service, quality and ambience.

    Chelokababi offers an enchanting Persian High Tea experience that promises to delight the senses. With its elegant ambiance and impeccable service, this culinary gem effortlessly fuses traditional Persian flavors with innovative twists. From delicate rosewater-infused cookies to savory saffron-infused cakes, each bite is a journey through Persian culture and cuisine. Paired with a fine selection of teas and warm hospitality, Persian High Tea is a must-try for anyone seeking a memorable dining experience. Merci Maryam Jon for your hospitality 🙏🏻
