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

This is the best Persian restaurant I have gone to (and that includes many continents and restaurants in Iran). Many vegetarian options of well-known Persian dishes are available, including fesenjoon, my favourite. Also their doogh drink (a savory yoghurt drink, which I normally don't care for) is the best I have had (including numerous times in the real city of... More

The wife and I went the Shiraz for dinner to escape the monotony of pub fare on offer in Surfers Paradise. We have only had Iranian food a few times and this dinner will go a long way towards encouraging us to have it again. We had the eggplant dip and pickles for entree both of which were fantastic.

Brought my family of 18 for dinner on our last day in Gold Coast. What better way to end the night and trip to a sumptuous and mouth-watering food. Food was excellent with a cozy ambience at a reasonable price. Location is easy to find too.

All very tasty.Two of us shared the Special mix plate although enough for 3 and my son had the Gheymeh stew. Also delicious. We finished with baklava, the freshest I have... More
