small family run restaurant. We were there on a Friday evening and had live music that started at 7 pm. Was nice music but much too loud for the small space. Could not talk across the table. Had hummus which was pretty good and lamb shank. The lamb was fine. Came with a huge plate of dill-flavored rice. Not at... More

This is great place for lunch with very minimum hassles and concerns. The food is very good, though typical Persian cuisine. The choices are limited for vegetarians, limited to appetizers, salads and soups. My wife loves their meat dishes.

We tried this restaurant again, being fans of Iranian food, after a hiatus caused by a previous disappointing experience. The lamb kebab and the salmon kebab were shockingly poor - they are being marinated in the wrong kind of sauce. I could not eat more than a few bites. We were one of only two tables occupied on a Saturday... More

The restaurants very cute, from what I saw on display they have really attractive bellydancers but we weren't there during dinner to see them. I ordered the shiraz logha, which was actually very flavorful, I just wish they put more meat on my plate. The pita they served as appetizer was warm and awesome. My husband and friends ordered the... More

I can't say how authentic the food is but I have been to Shiraz 2 times and enjoyed the homemade food. Both times the restaurant was surprisingly empty (given that it was the weekend) with only 1-2 other tables occupied. We had the following on both occassions: 1) Mirza Ghassemi Plate (appetizer) - this is an eggplant dish with tomato,... More

Again no complaints only great things to say about the... More

Food good. Owner and staff attitude NASTY. Worse experience I ever had in a restaurant. No I do not drink or do drugs so I was well aware when we were treated badly. Thrown out 1/2 way through meal due to their over-booking.

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.
