Having lived in both Washington, DC and Los Angeles, I have been accused of being somewhat of a Persian food connoisseur. Both areas boast a large diaspora of Persians and subsequently, many terrific Persian restaurants. We found Shiraz restaurant by sheer coincidence. The ambiance was pleasantly accentuated by authentic Persian decorations. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We sat down to a round of tea and various appetizers prior to ordering our meal. Our waitress explained how the stews were prepared and was knowledgable of what ingredients were used in the recipes. When the food arrived, the unmistakable aroma of saffron signaled an authentic meal. Ounce for ounce saffron is more expensive than gold. So we were delighted to see a generous portion of the rice mixed with saffron. The kabobs were so succulent that I had no doubt the meat was marinated well in advance of grilling. We had an exquisite culinary experience and returned to Shiraz several times prior to leaving Budapest. All in all, two thumbs up.
