Great no frills food

First time we all had persian cuisine. We had the platter, stew, humus & egg plant dip. The food was tasty. The rice is the best tasting rice I've had, it's so fluffy & tasty. The meat skewers were also so tasty. We had tea after & it was so fragrant. I would recommend this place for... read more

Despite offering an apparently good vegetarian selection, the dishes served were very salty and lacking in both spice and flavour.

Seeming this is so highly rated I was pretty excited to check this place out. Unfortunately the oily substances presented to us were not pleasant and the only thing we finished off was the hummus. The cashier questioning us on what we ordered (when we were the only people left in the restaurant and couldn't really pronounce the menu items)... More

Comparing to other Persian restaurantsq I've been, Shiraz is one of the best... Portions have a decent size, the kebab is getting better, much juicier and tenderer... with friendly staff, definitely recommended! Can do a bit on furniture as any other restaurant.

We didn't find anything bad about this place at all! The food was terrific, the 2 ladies were extremely friendly and nice, quantity was enough, pricing decent, seating was peaceful. A must go place for all who like Persian food. The baklava was finger licking too.

We enjoyed Shiraz so much that we went back for a second meal. The service is quick, friendly and superb value of money. The meal reminded me of our time in Istanbul. If you are seeking an authentic middle eastern meal in surfers paradise this is the place to go.

Enjoyed the Persian dinner there. The first day me and my wife went there for dinner, sat outside. They were very busy, therefore took a while to get the dish on the table. Eventually we loved the dish and salty lassi (drinks made by yoghurt, mint and dont know what else). The dish was so huge that we hardly finished... More
