I made a visit here in early August seeing as i was in the city centre and had heard good things about this place and had seen the high rating of it on trip advisor. My partner had advised me that her friend had been here and said it wasn't really up to standard in her opinion. But im a... More

Cosy little place although overall quite expensive. Nice pudding and tea pot. Mains were ok . Been coming here for years. It's not always the same experience, depends on how busy it is. The busier the slower.

I've been visiting this restaurant on and off for the last 6yrs. However my visit yesterday made me cringe. First as we walked in there was a smell of old raw meat. It was really awful but I thought it's maybe my imagination. Then the service was slow, although every table was busy so three waitresses - one who clearly... More

Waited in cramped condition for half an hour. Very rude staff. Terrible food and very overpriced. Actually feel sick. Sorry.

Been their loyal customer so I know that their busy times and will avoid coming in that period. Their food is fantastic and I particularly love their chicken grill on the bone. The restaurant is clean, service is fast unless restaurant is full (as we can wait up to more than 30 minutes -- but the food worth it). Being... More

After reading so many amazing reviews on this place I decided to try this place out with a couple of friends. Booking a table was pretty straightforward and staff were helpful when we called to ask if we can change our reservation to an earlier time. When we got to shiraz we were seated straightaway. There were a few people... More

I came here with an Iranian women who was able to tell me all about the food, which was fantastic and really set the scene! The food was out of this world, by far the best lamb I have ever eaten and the flavours and colours were wonderful. I've told as many people as I can about this place, and... More

The narrow restaurant space and bric a brac add to the experience.... More

The food in this family run restaurant is wonderful. My husband is a curry addict but he loves going here. The staff are really helpful when we're choosing the food, advising on the best combinations. They often give little extras to try too. As an Islamic restaurant there is no alcohol either for sale or bring your own and still... More
