This is that type of restaurant where the owner comes to you and guides you on what to order. Quite Authentic, very very tasty food (especially if you are into mutton), limited menu (which is the correct way to do it), beach facing, quiet, etc. Ask the brother-sister owners of what to eat and they will gladly guide you along...

Loved the experience of trying out Iranian food this time around, but some of the dishes were disappointing. But great ambience and typical music to go with it.

Shiraz cafe is a place you could go anytime and experience the kind of service that will make you feel 'at home'. Being a sucker for outdoorsy settings, this place gets brownie points for its location- it is bang opposite neelangarai beach and is lovely in the evenings. To comment on the food, they have got it right every time... More

The Iranian city of Shiraz is famous for poets and gardens, and in the gracious and elegant setting of Shiraz Café, Nasreen Karimi serves poetry on plates, and pours poems into the glassware. The memory of the steaming, golden, lemon mint tea lingered for days afterward. Nasrin, and her brother Dariush, who run the place are warm and welcoming hosts.... More

The Sunday brunch at Shiraz is wonderful! (I haven't tried the a la carte menu available at other times).This is one of my favorite places in Chennai, have eaten here many times. The ambience is calm and relaxed, with a view to the grassy patio and beyond, to the sea. The food is remarkable -- Ms. Nasreen, the chef, is... More

It is in a very secluded kind of an area. But the ambiance is really nice. The food, Iranian, is good and you tend to develop a taste for it as you gorge. It was really nice talking to the owner as well who told us the story about the whole restaurant. Make sure you ask him as to what... More
