We were in Whangarei for the weekend and had been told that Shiraz was a great place to get a very good curry dinner. We had the mixed platter to share followed by butter prawns and chicken korma. The dishes were excellent and we were served in a good time by friendly staff. Overall very happy and easy to recommend.... More

Great food, service and gluten free friendly for our coeliac family members. Tandoori mushroom entree was a stand out. Good sized meals and very reasonable prices. A very relaxed dining experience. Whangarei has the equal of any Auckland Indian restaurant at Shiraz.

Shiraz has, in my opinion, the best butter chicken in Whangarei! Customer service is also really great.

I came on a tuesday night to eat dinner too get the $12 curry special. The food was okay but not teriffic. There wasn't a long wait to eat dinner. There was confusion between the waiters as to who at the table ordered which dish. Probably to do with note taking about who ordered which dish and not keeping the... More

A very good example of a very bad restaurant. I have never left a negative review in my life & I do realize this is not Michelin starred restaurant. The guys at Shiraz Restaurant in Whangarei ripping people off but selling Biryani for $17.50 & all you get is the small pack of pack that you get in any take... More

How genuine this review is ,Everyone reading the review can see and make their own judgement that other and only one review given by this same reviewer to another restaurant in Auckland is also negative. Where this reviewer claims he never left a negative review in his life. We have been running Shiraz restaurant in Whangarei for 21 Years now.... More

Sometimes we plan to go to Shiraz, other times the visit is spontaneous. Either way, Shiraz never fails to please. The staff are so friendly and attentive. The food is fabulous - so much so that I'm slowly working my way through their delicious menu! This time it was a casual night out. Again, great service and beautiful food. I... More

Description
Shiraz Indian Restaurant was the first truly successful Indian restaurant established in Whangarei. We have pleasure in bringing you the finest ethnic cuisine which evokes nostalgia of a glorious bygone era! Jaswant Singh and his team bring you the spicy, tantilising taste of India with a menu large and diverse enough for you to return again and again without ever tasting the same dish twice! You choose the degree of spiciness whenh you order either at the restaurant or for your home delivery. Traditional dishes from the best of authentic Mughlai and North Indian cuisine are there to tempt you, whether they be chicken, lamb, beef, seafood or one of many vegetarian dishes. Don't be concerned if you don't think you can cope with a hot, spicey curry as mild curries are available for those with a more sensitive palate. If you're feeling brave, try a hot Beef Vindalloo! As well as a huge range of curries, Shiraz offers a large selection of Indian breads and entrees to round out your meal. And after your meal perhaps a bowl of mango ice-cream would be nice to finish? Bookings are not essential but it is a good idea to call in advance as some nights are busier than others. SHIRAZ is a lisenced restaurant and has an excellent range of wines, NZ & Indian beers. SHIRAZ can be found in; Whangarei, Kamo and Dargaville. 5 Reasons why you'll have a great time at Shiraz 1. You'll have delicious freshly prepared chicken, lamb, beef, seafood and vegetarian dishes. 2. Your meal is prepared with the finest fresh locally sourced vegetables and dairy products. 3. Awarded A+ Merit food licence for food safety, cleanliness & training programmes. 4. Have a family friendly restaurant and children's menu. 5. Guaranteed you'll leave satisfied... Simple.
