I have been to Shiraz 3 times since May of this year and each time has been a wonderful experience! The first visit was with a party of 15 and the service was exceptional and everyone's meals were delicious! The next 2 times were with just my family of 5. Again no complaints only great things to say about the... More

Food good. Owner and staff attitude NASTY. Worse experience I ever had in a restaurant. No I do not drink or do drugs so I was well aware when we were treated badly. Thrown out 1/2 way through meal due to their over-booking.

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

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.
