Only go here if you have a particular diet, over cooked food to tick boxes, not to enjoy, maybe we ordered the wrong items just before closing.

After reading so many great reviews on trip advisor my partner and I decided to come here for lunch. It was delicious for the money we paid for. Their lunch special is totally worth it and not to mention how juicy their lamb was and the amazing hummus. A must-go-to place when in surfers paradise!

My wife and I decided to go based on the good reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed.

Had lunch here with my wife. We decided to try the shared platter for two. The meats were rather tasty. The rice was well cooked. The waitress was very pleasant. All in all we were happy we chose to dine at Shiraz Authentic Persian Restaurant.

Compared to a lot of other places around gold coast you pay a lot for the area and location. Here you don't! It was great tasty food that fed us all and cost no more than $20 each. We tried a variety of dishes and would say the mixed kebab plate was our favourite. Tender meat that was full of... More

I normally find Persian food a bit bland, it's like Turkish food just with not that much flavour. Was impressed with the service, and the food. I normally don't care if the service is average if the good makes up for it, but service and food were great!!! A must for everyone..

My wife and I had never eaten authentic Persian food before. The flavours of the dishes and drinks are sensational and wonderfully different to Western fare. The service was charming and so quick. The entrees and main meals all arrived quickly, being neatly presented, hot and were good sized portions. The salty mint lassi was brilliant with the lamb shank... More

We ordered takeaway Mixed Kebab and Fersenjan (Chicken and walnut stew). Both meals were pleasant but I felt that the servings were a little lacking in quantity. The mixed kebab was very tender and would benefit by including a dip or sauce as an accompaniment and to add some moisture to the dish. The chicken stew was nice. The service... More
