My chicken tikka was tasteless and the salad was dull and looked as if it had been plated up hours earlier. I expected better.

Had the banquet dinner and all the hot meals were absolutely delicious but dessert sadly, was a let down. Only one option was Indian and the rest, typical kiwi desserts. Please consider changing the dessert menu because it's your authentic Indian cuisine that draws us in. On the whole though, it was a lovely dinner and definitely good value.

Had dinner here with friends. Ordered lamb saag which was average. No atmosphere at all. Just a big room with tables scattered around. An ok place for a quick meal. But a bit pricey for what it is. Service was pretty good Won't return in a hurry

I took my 90 year old mother here the other day for lunch. Food was fantastic, the server was very obliging and value for money. My mother is not familiar with Indian Cuisine, she loved it, asked for mild curries of course and was not disappointed. Naan to die for. Would definitely recommend.

A great Indian resturant however I feel it's becoming more European in its dishes and losing the traditional cooking methods that make real Indian amazing, great to eat in or takeaway here!!

Description
Shiraz Indian Restaurant was the first truly successful Indian restaurant established in Whangarei. We have pleasure in bringing you the finest ethnic cuisine which evokes nostalgia of a glorious bygone era! Jaswant Singh and his team bring you the spicy, tantilising taste of India with a menu large and diverse enough for you to return again and again without ever tasting the same dish twice! You choose the degree of spiciness whenh you order either at the restaurant or for your home delivery. Traditional dishes from the best of authentic Mughlai and North Indian cuisine are there to tempt you, whether they be chicken, lamb, beef, seafood or one of many vegetarian dishes. Don't be concerned if you don't think you can cope with a hot, spicey curry as mild curries are available for those with a more sensitive palate. If you're feeling brave, try a hot Beef Vindalloo! As well as a huge range of curries, Shiraz offers a large selection of Indian breads and entrees to round out your meal. And after your meal perhaps a bowl of mango ice-cream would be nice to finish? Bookings are not essential but it is a good idea to call in advance as some nights are busier than others. SHIRAZ is a lisenced restaurant and has an excellent range of wines, NZ & Indian beers. SHIRAZ can be found in; Whangarei, Kamo and Dargaville. 5 Reasons why you'll have a great time at Shiraz 1.
