Had tea here the other night and it was just ok. The lamb was very dry very average the chicken was quite good though. Staff were friendly but inattentive took ages to get a second drink and the place was only half full. Cardamon tea was nice this place was ok at best.

We had never been to a Persian restaurant before and Shiraz did not disappoint. The service was amazing, our server was helpful with suggestions and ensured we enjoyed our experience. The food was tasty, cooked to perfection and came out almost immediately, you can't look past the fresh homemade dips! The dishes are a generous serve at a very affordable... More

Food was alright, but my vegetarian dish was basically a plate of rice mixed with onions and nuts, so quite pricey. The waitress was very friendly, but didn't know what "gluten-free" meant.

Dear Melanie, Thank you for sharing your honest feedback. I do apologize for not training our new team members promptly, especially regarding our mostly gluten-free menu (basically, our menu is gluten-free, except for Noon o Kebab, which comes with bread, and our chicken barley soup). In order to avoid the occurrence of this situation in the future, we will take... More

We dined here with visiting NSW relatives. The staff were friendly and prompt in taking our orders and explaining the menu. My meal was particularly dry but my companions had no complaints and said theirs were very tasty. The value is good but the place appears average in appearance. Overall we had a reasonable experience here. Pity they do not... More

I haven't seen many Persian restaurants in Australia and when we stumbled upon this restaurant during our Gold coast trip we decided to try it and we didn't regret. I've never eaten in a persian restaurant before so I didn't know what to expect. To start with, the service was pretty good and the staff were friendly and helped us... More

The food was tasty and the portions were large. Wide selection of meat and vegetable dishes. If you are looking for Halal food, I highly recommend this restaurant.
