“Great lunch”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

First time here. Interior decor much nicer than one would expect from the outside. For lunch I tried the hummus and the chicken kibbideh. Both portions were large, excellent in flavor and fairly priced. If I lived near here, I would definitely visit again.

“Rude Manager/Owner”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

My experience at SHIRAZ restaurant was pretty appalling that I had never had it before. The manager's unprofessional, rude and snobby behavior made us sooo disappointed. We had an issue with the bill and coupon and asked the waitress to talk to the manager. When the manager came, he started talking load and mad at us and we were all shocked. I said this is my first and of course the last time I come here, he replied "I would be very happy not seeing you here", and "tell all of your friends not to come to my restaurant" and "I prefer to hang a sign saying no xxxxian people". These are all his exact sentences he shouted at us. When we were stepping out, the manager again came over angrily announced rude words. We were not willing to continue, but he insisted. Even he continued shouting rude speech when we were out!! Overall a very awkward experience we had that we will never step foot into this restaurant again.

“Good Persian food”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This was my third time at Shiraz, and, as on the other two occasions, the food was very good. My partner ordered lamb shanks as she had before. She was very happy with it. I order a chicken special of the day and liked it very much. The flavors of the Persian sauces are delicious. I think some sort of fruit syrup, maybe pomegranate, is used in that sauce. We always order the eggplant appetizer which has mint in it among other ingredients. Really exceptional!

“ok food, mandatory top for 4 people, charged pop refills”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

This place is ok, but does have some MAJOR drawbacks that you should consider before deciding to head over there for lunch or dinner. Here are some points:
1) Just about Average tasting food, not bad. Persian tea is great to have after food.
2) Service is quick which i do appreciate.
3) Soft drinks are NOT free refills, you pay for each refill. They will not tell you that either. I didn't know anybody still does that. Isn't it enough profit margin they're making from carbonated flavored water ?! Very cheap policy, should be changed asap.
4) They offer you free bread which is great tasting. if you ask for another one, they will charge you for every bread after the 1st one.
5) Mandatory tip of 18% on ANY bill. The standard is mandatory bill for parties of 6 or more in any restaurant. Seems they are on the aggressive end of the enforced tip.
6) Bathroom is dirty, needs to be cleaned thoroughly.
7) Music is very monotoned & somewhat depressing. I do understand that music is taste based from 1 person to the other, but this music will def put you to sleep or depression. Please put more hip music to induce happy mood amongst customers.


If they fix all the above issues, this place would be great. I hope they read this review & work on the issues proactively.
