We were hungry after a long afternoon on the train and I had already located this place near the Westin Nova Scotian. We were not going to eat in because I had been advised they had a very large television, and they do. But I...More

Very small spot, only 4 tables. The food is very good and on par with some of the Persian Restaurants elsewhere, the owners were very nice and friendly, highly recommended.

If you're looking for a deal, big portions or good eats, this is not it! With next to no overhead, operating out of a shed, they charge the same rate as any restaurant in the high-end downtown district. NOT RECOMENDED!!!

Absolutely fantastic restaurant. We used to crave for their food at least once a week. Now that we moved, when we went back for our vacation, first restaurant we visited is Shiraj. Still the little place, amazing hospitality and yummmyyyy food.
