We visited Shiraz couple of weeks ago with some friends. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the potential to be a gem in the city, located in the city centre. Although, we had no issues during our visit, when we received the bill the waiter told us that there will be an additional 10% service charge that is not... More

During my last trip to Eastern European countries I visited Budapest, and I decided to try one of the Persian restaurants during my stay there. I was introduced to Shiraz Restaurant. The place is located on a very cute strip along with tons of other cafe/bar/restaurants. One of the hostess that works there was super nice. She even speaks Farsi... More

I had an anniversary dinner with my wife. Food was ok, service was friendly, belly dancers were a nice touch. Then when we asked for the bill, the waiter brought us a piece of paper without a list of what we consumed and how much they cost. The bill jus had a final number. When we asked for the detailed...

It is a really good restaurant. We ordered pomegranate soup, Persian tapas, Kukuye Bademjan and Ali Baba. We drunk sweet Martini. The waitress were very kind and the service was very good at time too. I loved the orange shisha and the hot and sexy bellydancers:) I can recommend this restaurant who loves the irregular and unique places.

Nice cozy restaurant to spend an evening with Arabian songs and little bit of belly dance. If you want to taste an Iranian food, this is a good option in Budapest. Friendly staff and a traditional Middle eastern ambiance. Good place

Having lived in both Washington, DC and Los Angeles, I have been accused of being somewhat of a Persian food connoisseur. Both areas boast a large diaspora of Persians and subsequently, many terrific Persian restaurants. We found Shiraz restaurant by sheer coincidence. The ambiance was pleasantly accentuated by authentic Persian decorations. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We sat... More

We were looking for an early meal before leaving Budapest and this place caught our eye after eating Hungarian food for several days. Initially the people smoking water pipes was a little intimidating, but after we went in we were shown to a quiet (too quiet) back area. It was luxuriously appointed with rugs, wall hanging and lamps that gave... More

We had been eating at reasonably cheap restaurants all weekend during our recent stay in Budapest so as it was my birthday, decided to go for something slightly more upmarket on our last night. The food here seemed quite overpriced for what it was - although the meat was nicely seasoned and really tasty - and we had eaten food... More
