It was Saturday dinner during peek time and the place was hot inside as well as outside. Although the menu is nice and reasonably priced but the service was slow and the meat and the rice were undercooked and they forgot our appetizers and brought them after the main course. After dinner we wanted some desert or tea but no... More

We had lunch here once and it was good enough. Considering Gold Coast I would say we were not expecting much and the food was beyond our expectation. The portions for curry are small but taste and ambiance is good.

Very busy & popular restaurant with indoor & outdoor seating but fast and flavorsome food. We started with Hummus which came with Lebanese Bread and also a Tabouleh Salad. For mains we shared the Shiraz Special Mix Plate which is enough for two people. It consisted of a skewer of Chicken, Minced Lamb & Chunked Lamb. All were beautiful &... More

First time for me trying this food. Chicken was so moist. The Persian drink was delicious and the saffron ice cream excellent. Yum

This style of cuisine is one that does not appeal to everyone. And I found out it is not for me. The service was appalling. Got the wrong dish (vegetarian stew when I ordered the chicken option) and the bread never showed up. The food was overly sweet. Yes it was a sweet and sour dish but this had no... More

Persian food is one of my favourites so if you like meat kebabs and tasty rice then this place is for you but you must be prepared to wait. I guess these dishes take a bit of preparation. Service is good and the ambience is certainly enjoyable, you will find the menu extensive and some choices you haven't heard of... More

Iran is a country with a diverse geography and ethnic population. It sits at the centre of the former Kingdom of Persia, one of the world's oldest continuous major civilisations. Iran forms a bridge between the Middle East and the Far East in the centre of the ancient Silk Road, a major trading route which goes back tens of thousands of years. Persian cuisine has influenced many world cuisines, and has absorbed elements from other cuisines as well. It's no surprise that Persian ingredients such as saffron, pomegranate and spinach have made their way into other cuisines! As ancient traders took their wares to the corners of the world, they traded goods, bringing back the eating habits and ingredients from Greece, Rome, Turkey, Russia and India. Today's Persian cuisine traces its roots to ancient Persian ingredients and recipes, and is enriched by the great tastes imported from the rest of the world!
