We had a great meal at Shiraz Persian Restaurant. It’s a bit quiet around Surfers at the moment being cold, wet and mid week however a very warm welcome awaited us when we happened by this restaurant. Ordered the marinated olives with pomegranate and walnuts...to start, then some lamb dishes. The flavours were magnificent and brought back memories of travels and food experiences in Turkey. It was like a little trip away!More

Wow! Delicious! Had the Shiraz mix plate and the trio entree. So much food! Very generous portions. We had plenty to eat and take home! The flavour of everything was 10/10. We dined for a bday and received the most delicious baklava on the house....Would recommend!More

Shiraz Persian is the last redoubt of culinary good taste on a battlefield where overpriced stodge has laid waste. Beautiful, authentic middle-eastern cuisine. Friendly service and excellent value for money.

This place has the most amazing food and a great atmosphere. Very hard to choose from the menu, as everything looked so good! The 4 of us just decided to go with the banquet option, and we were not disappointed. The food just kept coming!...Beautiful lamb and chicken with incredible flavours, all of us were very impressed and satisfied by the end of the meal! The staff are very friendly and helpful as well. I can’t wait to come back!More
