Although we’ve been nervous about eating out due to covid we ventured out to support hove. We opted for a quiet Monday afternoon and had plenty of space and time . There was another couple behind but with screens up and hardly anyone else in...the restaurant we felt very safe. Food was excellent as you’d expect. Good portions, hot and meat cooked to perfection . For £50 for two we had a feast we couldn’t finish and a few drinks. Very reasonable for restaurant quality food and service . Big shout out to Ramy. Excellent service and full of recommendations and advice when navigating the menu . He made sure we were well looked after and sorted out whatever we needed quickly. Thanks Ramy. Excellent experience . Top marks.More

Went with a friend for a dinner and we shared the meal at £45 with 2 starters, 3 mains and 2 sides. Everything was delicious! We also had a lovely evening thanks to the really friendly employees of the restaurant!

We had a small group for a Birthday meal and it was amazing food from the starters of Halloumi, Squid and the Shiraz Wings, and mains including Torsh, Shashlik and Jooheh. Staff were great, polite and attentive, and made the evening a memorable one. Would...happily recommend and return ourselves.More

I’ve been to this place many times over the years, I am pleased to say it is consistently good with great variety menu and specials. The open bbq grill gives that extra taste value. Staff are friendly and helpful. The mixed grill is value for...money compared to some other places in town. Does takeaway too!More

Took the boyfriend out for dinner, had eaten here before when it was called something else and was great, we chose the set menu - humous was nice but so much for the tiny bit of bread they give you with it, squid was good...but only 6 bits between 2 - main was 3 small strips of meat - chips and a plate of plain warm rice… just bland and not that filling and very dry - for £45 it really wasn’t worth it.More

Today me and my wife went for a meal here. Being half Iranian myself and being brought up on Iranian food, I was always going to be a big critic. I honestly rate this place 10/10 and I would give more if I could! It...brought me back to my child hood and the staff were amazing. My wife loved it just as much as me and we will definitely be making this a regular! Reasonably priced, amazing friendly staff, traditional food cooked to protection, amazing atmosphere can’t fault a thing.More

It’s great to see the Chef cooking the food on the charcoal grill. We had the chicken wings and baby squid for starter; they were both absolutely gorgeous. Both tender and succulent and fab garlic dip. Beware, the green chilli dip is not for the...faint hearted! Flatbread lovely and flaky. We then both had the Shiraz mixed grill - best kebabs we think we’ve had. The lamb and chicken was lovely and moist and the minced lamb kebab was spiced just right. Gorgeous. There was a good atmosphere and all the staff were friendly and attentive. Only wish it was a bit nearer it where we live but we’ll definitely return.More

No, although located in the same premises, this is a 'new' operation, with different owners and different ethnic cooking. Although Shiraz has maintained the open grill, and serves grilled meats, the dishes are served in a... More
