I am Persian and live in Exeter, where there are no Persian restaurants, so I travelled to Bristol to eat here, and I was NOT disappointed. The restaurant decor is a little tired - but the food was fabulous. The service was ok - the girl actually undercharged us by over £20, but with it being a small independent restaurant... More

We love this place! Part of my family are Middle Eastern so they know good Middle Eastern food! and they love Shiraz too! We have been here on several occasions and each time the food is superb and the staff friendly and attentive. There is a wide variety of choice on offer and the bread (kobeh) is warm and fresh....

Being Persian myself, I wanted to try this place after hearing about it from a colleague at work once I moved to the area. The food is wonderful but make sure you are hungry before you eat here. My starter alone was enough to share or even enough to be a main course. The portion sizes are typically Persian. The... More

My family and I love Persian food. The handmade bread is divine and the kebabs are tasty. My better half has lamb and I have the chicken. The BEST thing about this restaurant is (for me) the rice. I had the pleasure of dating a Persian guy when I was younger and his mother taught me how to make Persian... More

Usually I visit Shiraz with my wife, but last night I went with two friends who had not eaten there before. Needless to say, they loved the food, the service and the restaurant. My Koobideh was as delicious as it always is. Thanks to all at Shiraz for a lovely meal and evening!

We were recommended to come here by a Persian Lady and have to say we were disappointed with the quality of the food. We felt it was not particularly fresh my friend's fish tasted medicinal and my curry was not good. Even the starters of dips etc were distinctly average. The flat bread however was excellent. The service although it... More

We arrived early and still in daylight hours of ramadan. a Very quite place. The food had great flavours and a good variety of food was offered. Ordering a mixed mezze starter for two we had more food than we could eat! Great bread and good variety of foods. Vegetarians could eat well here and get good food. The main... More
