I've traveled a lot the past 10 years and almost always look for a good place to get Persian food. It's my favorite cuisine and I'm often shocked at how places famous for food don't even have a Persian restaurant. Austin is blessed with more than one - and is also home to my favorite one: Shandeez. The staff is... More

As someone else already mentioned don't be fooled by the exterior. The interior is really good. The food is awesome. I rarely find Persian restaurants which constantly keep there grilled meat soft, juicy without burning it. There sweets are not that great though but all kabobs are a must try. They also regularly give deals on Groupons so you can... More

This is a great intimate place to enjoy Persian cuisine. The service is superb and the atmosphere quiet. This is my go-to place for lamb shank! I recommend it highly.

We met some family members there for a pre-holiday lunch. I had the vegetarian platter and my partner had the gyro/Greek salad combo. The food was fresh, hot and tasty and MORE than enough to eat and not more than about $12/person. Everybody took home a to-go box. The menu is extensive and pretty representative of Persian cuisine. The waitress... More

Visited tonight for our monthly girls dinner. Ordered hummus as an appetizer: looked pretty but tasted bland. Needed lemon or salt. I ordered the falafel for my entree: they fried the hell out of those things! Not much flavor at all. They were Served with a few slices of tomato and cucumber which I ate with the side of pita...

This was such a huge surprise! Who would have thought that this tiny restaurant provided such amazing food. I went a couple of weeks ago with a friend for lunch and we immediately decided to take our husbands back. We went back this past Thursday for dinner and once again we were all impressed. The appetizers, salads, entrées and desserts... More

Went to Shandeez for lunch and had their baba ghanoush, falafel, and vegetarian plate. The food was good and clean tasting, but seems a bit understated to both of us. Need to go back and try their kebabs and heavier foods. No complaints about the food or service, More that it didn't strike us as being as exceptional as others... More

Had dinner here on a week night. On the outside, a nondescript store front in a well worn strip mall. On the inside, a tastefully decorated BYOB featuring Persian and Greek foods. The lady behind the counter who was also our waitress was very nice, the food was well made and served promptly. We had kebobs and a chicken dish... More
