Interesting mix of middle eastern style food, served super quickly- excellent for a hungry table. Great stews, the vegetarian ones especially Generous mixed meat skewers, super fresh salads and deserts. A home style and delicious dinner in the heart of surfers.

I got a take away from Shiraz. The staff over the phone were really helpful. I ordered Ghormeh Sabzi (a lamb stew) which was delicious and a really generous portion. I would definitely recommend to anyone in surfers.

We visited this restaurant because of all the great reviews but found the food to be very average and flavorless..the service was good and the waitress was pleasant but that did not make up for the taste.

What a surprising restaurant. Service is excellent, staff show a real enthusiasm making it very enjoyable. Food is great and servings are generous so that we couldn't finish. They even gave us some tea on the house. Certainly recommend this place.

Had an amazing meal here last night with my family. We all really enjoyed our meals (priced $16-$20). The staff were so friendly which made such a difference. Would 100% eat here again and recommend to everyone for something different to eat!

Description
Iran is a country with a diverse geography and ethnic population. It sits at the centre of the former Kingdom of Persia, one of the world's oldest continuous major civilisations. Iran forms a bridge between the Middle East and the Far East in the centre of the ancient Silk Road, a major trading route which goes back tens of thousands of years. Persian cuisine has influenced many world cuisines, and has absorbed elements from other cuisines as well. It's no surprise that Persian ingredients such as saffron, pomegranate and spinach have made their way into other cuisines! As ancient traders took their wares to the corners of the world, they traded goods, bringing back the eating habits and ingredients from Greece, Rome, Turkey, Russia and India. Today's Persian cuisine traces its roots to ancient Persian ingredients and recipes, and is enriched by the great tastes imported from the rest of the world!
