“Worst Persian restaurant we have ever eaten at.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2010

Having eaten in Persian/Iranian restaurants in about twenty European and Asian cities, and at over twenty in the US, I would say the food at Shiraz, Budapest is not only the worst Persian food I have ever had, it is also the worst food we had over the course of a week in Budapest. Never have I been served a flat dried out think piece of meat that could not be cut with any implement and have it be called a kabob. The dismal rice (is this basmati?!), the poor flavors in the appetizers we selected, everything was lacking at this highly advertised establishment on Budapest’s restaurant row. Budapest is a city with fantastic restaurants. Skip this one.

“Something different in Budapest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2008

I wanted somewhere to smoke a shisha pipe and found this on the net. Very nice place and authentically Persian, definitely something a bit different in Budapest.
Nice food with the fun addition of belly dancing every 30 minutes. Maybe not the greatest dancing ever but an amusing interlude nonetheless. Good value for money.
