First time here. Interior decor much nicer than one would expect from the outside. For lunch I tried the hummus and the chicken kibbideh. Both portions were large, excellent in flavor and fairly priced. If I lived near here, I would definitely visit again.

My experience at SHIRAZ restaurant was pretty appalling that I had never had it before. The manager's unprofessional, rude and snobby behavior made us sooo disappointed. We had an issue with the bill and coupon and asked the waitress to talk to the manager. When the manager came, he started talking load and mad at us and we were all... More

This was my third time at Shiraz, and, as on the other two occasions, the food was very good. My partner ordered lamb shanks as she had before. She was very happy with it. I order a chicken special of the day and liked it very much. The flavors of the Persian sauces are delicious. I think some sort of... More

I love food from the Middle East. But I have never had food like this. From the fabulous homemade hot flat bread to the hummus to the meal I loved it. We ate dinner and it was outstanding.

This place is ok, but does have some MAJOR drawbacks that you should consider before deciding to head over there for lunch or dinner. Here are some points: 1) Just about Average tasting food, not bad. Persian tea is great to have after food. 2) Service is quick which i do appreciate. 3) Soft drinks are NOT free refills, you...

One of the worst restaurant meals I can remember. Really bad chicken, not much taste. The sauce was equally unimpressive. I also really disliked the ambiance, which to me is actually more important than the food. I was there on a Friday night, and I did notice that a lot of the patrons knew each other, and there was a... More

We enjoyed the food and the ambiance, and would recommend this restaurant. Persian cuisine is very delicious. We had chicken kebab with bones and that was great. The service was good and prompt. The appetizers were delicious as well.

Had been to Shiraz once before on a weeknight. Wasn't impressed, the place was empty, and the food was good but not exceptional. Returned this time on a Friday night, and the place was packed with locals, mostly families of middle eastern culture. There was nice live instrumental music, indigenous to the culture, and not intrusive, The appetizers were sensational... More
