I was part of a group of 5 that dined at Shiraz for dinner last evening. The restaurant is VERY small - it seats perhaps 12 at most. The menu is limited - but, according to my Iranian companion, the typical highlights of Persian cuisine...More

Very small spot, only 4 tables. The food is very good and on par with some of the Persian Restaurants elsewhere, the owners were very nice and friendly, highly recommended.

If you're looking for a deal, big portions or good eats, this is not it! With next to no overhead, operating out of a shed, they charge the same rate as any restaurant in the high-end downtown district. NOT RECOMENDED!!!

Absolutely fantastic restaurant. We used to crave for their food at least once a week. Now that we moved, when we went back for our vacation, first restaurant we visited is Shiraj. Still the little place, amazing hospitality and yummmyyyy food.

The restaurant is small - it is located in a former taxi dispatcher hut. The owners, an older couple from Iran, have tried to make it cheerful and welcome. The feeling is very homey, it feels nice to be take care of by those lovely...More

This place looks like a dump as you drive or walk by - a little better inside and the food was very delicious and very interesting. There are three or four tables and it is as it looks from the outside; very small. It felt...More
