My companion and I were greatly impressed by this simple eating establishment. The popularity of the place with the large number of Muslim people eating there was testament to its authenticity. The freshness and flavour of the food was impressive and the service was very fast and whilst "without frills" very pleasant and friendly. If you like authentic middle eastern... More

We went twice to Shiraz resturant during our stay in Surfers paradise. The food was realy deliscious. The eggplant appetizer was perfect and all the main dishes. You will be served with a free salad also. The service is fast and staff is very friendly. Will come again and recommend it for others:

Food used to be good, it is the worst food now, I have ever eaten between the Persian foods. Chicken was burnt, rice very dry, kebab was still raw. I won't visit it again.

Terrible. Very boring food and mostly lettuce and blan rice. And doesn't serve any alcohol. Food quantity was also poor ... Just paying for lettuce and garnish. Had the lamb Schack which they said was the specialty dish. Would not come back

Dear Davooz, We regret to hear about your experience. I'd like to use this opportunity and mention that our food comes with a "complimentary" fresh garden salad which you don't pay for, but if that became one of your main concerns we're very sorry to hear that. Based on your description, we couldn't find the issue with the lamb shank... More

Description
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!
