We came here on Christmas day 2015. We ordered Kaskh-E-Badenjan (eggplant dip with pita bread), Chelo Koobideh (grilled minced lamb kebab with saffron rice) and Baghali Polo with Lamb Shank (slow cooked lamb shank with green rice). We really enjoyed the food especially the lamb shank and koobideh. The lamb shank was very soft; fall-off the bones! The service was... More

Despite what you might think from outside, Shiraz serves high quality, tasty food for a good price. Already given a complimentary salad, all the generously portioned food arrived promptly. The food was delicious and inexpensive for what we got. We ordered the tastiest baklava I've ever had for dessert. We'd definitely go back if we found ourselves in the Gold... More

With so many places to eat in Surfers Paradise, a Persian restaurant stood out - along with the large number of customers seated mid week at lunch time. I'm glad we stopped here. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable. Although busy, we were served in a timely manner. It's not the best looking restaurant -... More

I'm actually Persian and didn't enjoy the food at all. If you don't know how Persian food must taste, maybe it's OK, but if you had it elsewhere you will remain very disappointed

We did take away and had lamb and chicken kebabs and lamb shank. It was ok not disappointing but not the best. Our evaluation is a bit tough because we know a very good Turkish restaurant that serves better kebabs and the restaurant being jam packed gave us a high expectation.

On our trip we were searching for middle eastern cousin. We found Shiraz restaurant located along the surfers paradise. The kitchen smell conquered the entire dinning hall, so we sat outside on littel table on the side walk. The table wasn't stable. Yet we haven't paid much attention to it as we are craving the food. The minue offers limited... More

Dear Maroon, Shiraz prides itself on the quality of its food. Utilising unique herbs, spices and sauces that have been passed through families over generations, we maintain a simple menu containing staple Iranian dishes filled with flavour! Of course we are always concerned when a customer is not satisfied with our food or happy with our service, and apologize if... More
