About Chelo - Taste of Persia

Chelo - Taste of Persia is a Mediterranean and Persian Restaurant started by Executive Chef Saeed and his son Misagh in September of 2020. After Chef Saeed's 30 plus years of culinary experience he decided to create a fast casual restaurant which brings his recipes and flavors at prices that everyone can enjoy, not just some. He also brought about his years of catering service into the picture bringing about a unique and memorable experience. Everything in the kitchen is made from scratch including our home-made pita/naan bread and even the yogurt is made in house. All the recipes are halal and the quality of our meals are made from the freshest ingredients in the market.
