Visited the restaurant with my wife and kids, as well as other family members. As my wife's family is afghan, we have visited a few Persian restaurants in Sydney. I can say without a doubt, that Shiraz by far was the best I had visited. The service was great with staff very friendly. The food was delicious, and came in... More

We have been to Shiraz twice now and the restaurant has been refurbished, brighter and bigger. The food is excellent and have brought friends on both occasions. The staff are very helpful explaining what is on the menu and the owner is great friendly guy. There is no alcohol served but the food is worth the experience - the lamb... More

We were looking for something different for a birthday lunch and stumbled upon Shiraz. My partner and I like very spicy food and the chef was happy to spice things up for us. They also brought us out a bottle of hot sauce and chilli flakes. The portions were huge, the service quick and the waitress very friendly and helpful... More

Everything is perfect about Shiraz. From their service to the tenderness of their lamb. Their egg plant dip is to die for. A must visit for anyone in the vicinity.

Having been born Persian, I've had the opportunity to experience quite a lot of Persian food and restaurants in my lifetime. This is one of the first times I can easily say the food tastes like home. We went here twice. Once, we arrived past closing, and the chef was kind enough to still serve us some take away koobideh... More

This was our first time eating Persian cuisine. The dips were delicious and the service was great, not to mention the speed at which the food arrived.

This is the best Persian restaurant I have found in the world (I have tried them all over, including many in Iran). Most significantly, they offer excellent vegetarian versions of famous Iranian dishes. Most Iranian restaurants don't have much to offer in this area, but Shiraz makes dishes like vegetarian fesenjoon that taste exactly like the original. In addition, their... More

We ordered the special mix plate with saffron rice to share and my daughter had the Noon o kebab. The portion size was good but I found the meat lacked a little salt. Would have also loved to have been able to order a child's meal for my daughter rather than a adult portion which she found hard to finish.... More

We visited the place twice and loved it both times, the shish kebab with rice is super nice and flavoursome, and the traditional drink doug (youghart with mint) was delicious. Food is but on the expensive side but sitting there and listening to Persian music while eating left a lasting impression. We all will come back again.

Read about this place on trip advisor after seeking something nice for dinner that wasn't pizza and burgers and chips. Not disappointed at all. Service was really good - fast and all staff knew the menu. Food orders were taken quickly with no hassle and it was very tasty. The dips to start we're fresh and plenty of extra pita... More
