I highly recommend this restaurant. The food was amazing and so were the staff. I’ve never had Persian food before but will definitely be having it again as it’s amazing. My family and I ordered 3 of the vegetarian dishes. The food had so much flavour and the potions were generous. I can’t wait to return!

We had lunch at Shiraz and were blown away by the quality of the food and the service.It wasn’t a meal as much as a culinary experience.
Would recommend Khiar Sekanjebin, a drink with shredded cucumber and mint, which tasted delicious.The entree of Turkish bread with three dips was yummy.
We had Shaahi Kabob ( lamb and chicken kebabs) and Maahi ( fish) kabob, served with fluffy saffron rice and grilled tomato. Would also recommend Zereshk Polo ( slow cooked chicken in a spiced tomato sauce). Generous servings and prompt service..Oh,and if you still have room, try Faloodeh for dessert.Explosion of flavour on the palate.
Authentic Persian food on the Gold Coast. What a find!

My husband had been wanting to try Persian food for well over a year, but I'm not the adventurous type.....I was soooooo wrong. The food was absolutely delicious, the restaurant was clean and tidy and the service was great, friendly without being overbearing and annoying. We would definitely recommend Shiraz, and booking through First Table was easy and hassle free.

I always thought of Shiraz as a grape to make wine but it is also a City in Iran and the name of this unique restaurant in Surfers Paradise. No wine here but plenty of good food and great service. Delicious selection of meat and vegetarian options with some of the BBQ meats on beds of Saffron rice being a house specialty. Also so tasty deserts for the sweet lovers. Staff were friendly and efficient and was a great overall experience, definitely suggest for something a little out of the box.

OMG, this restaurant was amazing!! To start with had the trio of dips to share amongst the three of us and to say they were absolutely delicious would be an understatment!! Superb and huge serving, we could not eat it all. Next, I had the Lamb shank and the meat fell off the bone, it was so tender it melted in my mouth! My daughter had the lamb cutlets and in her words" they are the best I have ever had"!! She had not an ounce of meat left on them as she enjoyed so much. The rice was so fluffy, I wish we could make it like that. My husband had a lamb casserole can not recall its name and it was so tasty and even though he was full he said "I am not wasting any of this, way too good". We can not recommend this place highly enough, we will be back for sure!!

With so many Italian, Indian, Chinese, Thai etc. restaurants this place presents something "different" for a change. My Persian friend recommended us this restaurant and once there, we saw other Middle Eastern people coming to eat there, sure good sign for the locals of the cuisine to frequent a restaurant from their region. Service was prompt and friendly, very genuinely not just because it should be. For us vegetarians, dedicated vegetarian section of the menu made choice of meals easy. With four of us having each different starters and mains we had a good insight into the variety of the offerings and literally every single dish was faultless. Rice cooked perfectly, fluffy and subtle with saffron flavor, stews rich and flavorsome but not too overpowering. Even original drinks, especially the home made Persian Gold or Persian Tea added to the authentic experience. With very generous portions we left totally satisfied, bursting at the seams but content and happy.
When we were leaving there was not a free table, while some of the neighboring restaurants sat empty, not surprisingly as this is definitely step above the competition in terms of uniqueness, quality of service and food and overall experience. Highly recommended!

Shiraz had the most generous portions I have ever laid eyes on. There is no way I could have finished all the dip they provided me. You should definitely expect to have leftovers for lunch the next day. It was all delicious.

You have to have a "Persian Gold" drink when you go there, it was amazing. Go Persia.

The service was very good but my lamb chops were bland.
I would have thought they would have been marinated in something yummy, but they weren't and I could have made them tastier on the bbq at home.
There was also a mountain of rice on the plate. Unnecessary and way too much. I would hate to think how much rice they throw out every day.
Put on half the amount.
I didnt like the mayonnaise on the salad either.

Service was excellent. No faults there.
Food whilst being very tasty had too much rice. Ordered the Sultan's Feast and Lamb Shank, and more then half the plate was just rice.
Wish there was more variety on the plate, and potentially more meat.
Aside from that, had a great time, and will definitely be back to try some of the other items.
