Place is small but beautiful cosy atmosphere. Best to go in twos instead of groups, bread and grill are great. Over all good Persian food

Cons; If you are driving, parking can be a problem and... More

Our first time visiting Shiraz and now wishing we had done so years ago. The menu was varied with plenty of deliberating across our table before we both decided to choose from the grill menu. The food was authentic and flavoursome rather than heavily spiced. Barberry rice was beautiful and the lamb was cooked just right. We had a really... More

Our first experience of Persian cuisine, and we were not disappointed. Service was superb, and the food to die for. Portion size is very generous, the food succulent and very tasty. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Shiraz is a restaurant specialized in Persian food. It was actually my first try at it and I was not disappointed. I left the food choice to the owner of the restaurant and was not disappointed at all. The food was tasty and clearly served in big portions. I did enjoy every bit of it and even more the next...

I have never had a bad meal there. The food is delicious and the service is prompt. The rice is heavenly and the mint and rhubarb in the salad goes very well with the persian meat.

When we arrived the place was crowded - so much so that we were seated in a room 'next door' to look at the menu. This was a testament to the well-deserved popularity of this restaurant. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we did not have to wait long (we had booked). For the starter we had... More

This is my third time visiting and once again the food didn't fail me! Despite waiting 20 mins to be seated even though we had a table booked, the staff were very friendly and the food was well worth the wait! I've attached the meal I had. The meat was cooked perfectly -so succulent and tasty and decent portions too!... More
