Description: Shiraz Indian Restaurant was the first truly successful Indian restaurant...
Shiraz Indian Restaurant was the first truly successful Indian restaurant established in Whangarei. We have pleasure in bringing you the finest ethnic cuisine which evokes nostalgia of a glorious bygone era! Jaswant Singh and his team bring you the spicy, tantilising taste of India with a menu large and diverse enough for you to return again and again without ever tasting the same dish twice! You choose the degree of spiciness whenh you order either at the restaurant or for your home delivery. Traditional dishes from the best of authentic Mughlai and North Indian cuisine are there to tempt you, whether they be chicken, lamb, beef, seafood or one of many vegetarian dishes. Don't be concerned if you don't think you can cope with a hot, spicey curry as mild curries are available for those with a more sensitive palate. If you're feeling brave, try a hot Beef Vindalloo! As well as a huge range of curries, Shiraz offers a large selection of Indian breads and entrees to round out your meal. And after your meal perhaps a bowl of mango ice-cream would be nice to finish? Bookings are not essential but it is a good idea to call in advance as some nights are busier than others. SHIRAZ is a lisenced restaurant and has an excellent range of wines, NZ & Indian beers. SHIRAZ can be found in; Whangarei, Kamo and Dargaville. 5 Reasons why you'll have a great time at Shiraz 1. You'll have delicious freshly prepared chicken, lamb, beef, seafood and vegetarian dishes. 2. Your meal is prepared with the finest fresh locally sourced vegetables and dairy products. 3. Awarded A+ Merit food licence for food safety, cleanliness & training programmes. 4. Have a family friendly restaurant and children's menu. 5. Guaranteed you'll leave satisfied... Simple.

Best Indian food in town

If you love Indian food, then look no further. Shiraz has the most amazing curries in town. My wife and I have dined in at Shiraz and had takeaways several times and we have never been disappointed. If I am to be a little critical of anything, it would be the decor. It's nice enough for a... read more

After a night out at the movies with my girl friends we went to Shiraz for a curry. At last a Restaurant in Whangarei that not only honours it's Trading Hours, but also honours its Indian Cuisine. We all enjoyed our meals which had fantastic flavour, not just all about the heat. Great value too.

The food here is delicious! While I love many different curries I have to say they do the best butter chicken!! Good selection of food, really well priced too (they often have grab one deals and $10 curry specials). The food is served quickly and the service is great. If you like Indian cuisine I highly recommend.

We had the take away as I didn't want to sit in a massive hall like environment for my meal. So if you are wanting to impress a date...don't take her here. However the food was great. Some of the best indian I have had recently. What wasn't great was being told it would be 20 minutes and it actually... More

I've been to both Whangarei restaurants recently (Kamo and Central) their service was great and the food was amazing. Definitely recommend trying this Indian restaurant.
