Great place

Personally I like the Persian cuisine and this restaurant in the heart of Budapest reaches the Persians traditions of food. The location is welcoming and the food is very tasty. Need to try!

Ordered a wine and it was 2000 HUF (6.5 EUR) per Deciliter. So for two wines (OF COURSE one glass of wine was 2 dl) I paid 6000 HUF. NOT RECOMMEND THE PLACE. There are much nicer and quest friend places nearby. Try one of those, don't waste your time here.

Terrible service. Cold undercooked stale overpriced food. Dirty uncomfortable tables. Terrible rude uncaring staff. Don't go there ever.

We ate here in a large group and were very well looked after. The food was very nice and included a good variety of middle-eastern dishes, all of which were well cooked and attractively served. The waiter was very good at looking after us and we all enjoyed the meal very much. The price was very reasonable too

I visited Shiraz for the second time. I like the place with its unique atmosphere and the food was very good both times. First time the waiter, a guy about 35-40 was a real jerk. We were there with colleagues and guests and he kept making very strange jokes and comments, even rude ones. I never had such an experience... More

I went to Shiraz with a group of 10+ people and had a fantastic time on multiple levels. I ordered the chicken and beef kebab with basmati rice which was delicious. We also ordered the apple and grape hookas which had great scent and a decent kick. The service was very professional and friendly. The decorum was authentic Persian which... More

The food was OK but nothing special. However, there was a very rude waitress with really bad manners that order us to leave the terrace and come inside when they wanted to close it without any explanation.

Authentic Iranian food, great shisha; superb service and wonderful music the night we went. The restaurant is along the row of other restaurants. It has outdoor seatings as well as rooms inside authentically decorated in an Iranian manner. Our group of 12 sat outside. The music that night was performed by 2 Spanish singers and was one of the the... More

First of all they treat you as a thief , the place was very dark and you couldn't even breath. The drink wasn't as it suppose to be and it wasn't the drink what we ordered. The apatizer and main dish was really disgusting, it was obvious that it was cooked before -God knows how many days ago- and they... More

2 weeks ago I made up my mind to take my wife there, for a lunch, to introduce her to Irani kitchen. I had been to the Shiraz some 6 years ago, for the last time, and have kept it in good memory. Unfortunately, this time the presentation of dishes, the quality of the food, and the overall tastiness did... More
