Me and my friend had gone and we were there for 3hrs and no one batted an eye lid. I was very impressed. The service was great! Food was outstanding! I will definitely visit them again!

After a long absence away from the city of Birmingham, I returned to this gem of a restaurant! Service was excellent, quality of food was top notch! One cannot fault this establishment. I was quite surprised to read some of the negative reviews. Yes, I admit the place is small and can become extremely busy, but this goes to show... More

The food was good but a little bit over-priced for the service provided. The place was full so the table we got wasn't ideal and the time it took to serve was longer than we expected. Generally, the food was good (rice a bit on the bland side but still good), so I'd probably order as a takeaway or go... More

I was really looking forward to eating at Shiraz after all the good reviews on the food and customer service I read about here. However I experience none of the positive aspects noted on tripadvisor. We booked a table for 7pm last night and arrived at a very busy and cramped restaurant. We waited for a good 15 minutes and... More

Amazing food, anything from the grill is top notch. Their baklawa is the best I've ever had and the customer service is really good, they even give you a complementary dessert! I would recommend booking before going as it's a small place that tends to get very crowded, but that just shows how popular it is

I am a regular at Shiraz the food is exquisite. I tend to stick to the same main dish all the time maksoos absolutely beautifully cooked. Make sure to have the Iranian tea, the staff are very friendly especially Roshinek she's always running around catering to everyone.

A must visit when in the West Midlands. Small and busy so make sure to choose your timing well and/or reserve in advance, but the welcoming staff will do all they can to accommodate you. Juicy Chelo kebabs washed down with a fresh house mocktail, followed by authentic persian tea, a delicious fruit bowl and pudding. Lots of treats and... More
