Tried this restaurant for something a bit different. Chichen kebab was sensational. Soft & flavoursome. Homes & breads lovely. So glad we gave it a crack Excellent service especially from the guy on the front desk.

Have been to this restaurant a number of times. Last night we ordered the Shiraz platter for 2. All 3 of the kebabs were 10/10. The chicken kabab and lamb kababs were super succulent and delicious. The service was also fantastic. one of the best...middle Eastern food experiences I have ever enjoyed anywhere in the world.More

We keep returning to Shiraz because the food is incredibly tasty and we're keen to eat our way through the entire, extensive menu! Every dish we've ordered so far has been a feast for the palette. It's authentic, healthy, delicious Persian food that even my...fussy kids will eat! Shiraz is definitely our favourite restaurant on the GC. The waitstaff are so friendly without being overbearing. They recognise us now and know we like to order quickly, eat fast and leave so that our little ones don't disturb other diners with their noise levels. Brilliant food and excellent service. We will continue to return to Shiraz. It's simply amazing! 5 stars.More

The food was all so delicious and full of flavour, thank you for adding spice and salt. Which I’m always having to add to everything. Also the waitress was super helpful in explaining what things were in detail. Left my phone at the table and...the manager picked it up and put it aside for me. Thank you for your honesty and impeccable service.More

Great quality authentic food served in a relaxed atmosphere with friendly service. Extensive menu with great options for all tastes. Be warned the servings are generous and taste amazing. You won't go home hungry! Best to book ahead especially for weekends. Not much street parking...but limited on-site self parking. Great for friends and family get togethersMore

My partner and I took my mum here for a late mothers day dinner and none of us had one thing to fault! We originally were seated outside and were brought a heater to keep us warm but mum was still cold so they didn’t...hesitate to get us a table inside. After ordering our drinks and food we were so surprised how quickly we received everything we ordered. We’d never had Persian food before so we weren’t sure what we were in for but we can all hands down say it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted like it had been made my the gods. If you haven’t been to Shiraz yet, RUN DONT WALK! 11/10.More
