Despite the 100s of restaurants in Brighton and Hove, and we have tried most, the Shiraz is our favourite. The food, the wine, the service, value for money and the ambiance are great and just right - even the background music. Thank you. We'll be booking again soon!
We visit it three times.
The owner was in charge of the BBQ himself and took the time to approach our table at the end of the dinner to check how everything was.
Food was superb and service excellent.
We can't wait to come back.
We had another faultless meal at Shiraz last night. The food is delicious, service impeccable and the atmosphere is always very welcoming. I would highly recommend it.
The service was extremely nice and there were several delicious starters suitable for vegans as well as some delicious vegan stews for main courses. The Lebanese beer was good and the complimentary baklava brought over with the bill was a great bonus. This was our third visit and we will definitely come back again soon.
It is the best Iranian food in Brighton. The food is freshly and homely made by a lovely chef, mostly the grill and rice pot is in front of you so you can see what they are cooking, is also good value for the money as well. Kind, warm and friendly approach by staff members every time we have been with friends and family. Will definitely return to Shiraz and will recommend it to everyone, Put Shiraz restaurant in your diaries as your top list visit to Brighton for Iranian food, specially coming into the month of love in February, book those tables in for your dates, valentines, and any parties.
I have been going to Shiraz Restaurant since they opened, the food has always been tasty till today, everything is homely cooked by a lovely chef. very friendly and cosy environment. Always a warm welcome from the staff members.
Of all of the middle-eastern restaurants in hove, this is The Best. The service is exceptional. The food exemplary- and no disrespectful tones at all. the staff are all amazing.
Been to many Persian restaurants all over England, and this is the best. The service and staff are probably beyond 5 stars.
Very nice food, nice being able to see the food getting cooked in the kitchen that's in the middle of the resteraunt! Polite staff very good prices and the taste is amazing!! Will be returning very soon
Very busy early evening crowd. We ordered a selection of meze which were fine, but bland compared to the other restaurants Shandaz and especially the newer Persia up the road. The bread seemed warmed up from a batch rather than fresh as it should be.
Having finished the meze we said we were ready for our mains of chickens and lamb Koobideh.
A nice feature of these type of restaurants is being able to see the open charcoal grill where the kebabs are prepared. What Shiraz fail to understand is that customers can also see what the chef is up to. Whilst waiting for 45 minutes for the mains (due to many takeaways on delivery being sent out) I was excited to see the chef bring out skewers which looked like what we ordered. First he put on the chicken and with a blue gloved left hand started arranging them on a skewer. He then started fiddling with the lamb kebabs with the same hand as the raw chicken and then proceeded to pat and feel both meat types back and forth. As I got more concerned, he then picked up serving plates with the blue clad hand and used the blue glove to arrange salads on plates. I informed the waiter discreetly, who had a word with the chef and manager who waived their arms about as if we were making a fuss. Them standing behind a bar does not bestow invisibility powers on them. The waiter came back and asked if we wanted to cancel our order, to which I said yes. I offered to pay for all the drinks and starters and the waiter said no several times and we left.
Such a shame for such a popular restaurant. I don’t like writing negative reviews but felt people should know and avoid getting salmonella or getting killed by avoiding this restaurant unless they can be reassured that new safety practices are employed.
Health inspectors should make a visit.
Great food, great service, very welcoming, and good prices, if you’ve never gone, you should try it, guaranteed to come back.
Went out for a meal with wife while visiting Hove. This restaurant has great ambience. The kebabs are freshly grilled in front of you. Great service at such a reasonable price. Will definitely come back
I went in because i saw Shiraz was one of the top 10 picks for Brighton restaurants on another site. The service was great and the veggie kebab exceeded my expectations. They also have many traditional Iranian stews that you can order as veg or with meat so there are options for everyone. If you are in Brighton this is a must try!
i went with my wife to this restaurant last week and we were blown away by how wonderful it was. The food was amazing and 10/10 service. First Class. Thank you
Everything was fine and super tasty, service is perfect and very helpful. Definitely will come back again
Thoroughly enjoyed the service here. We got the Shiraz Platter for two but there were many things on the menu that stood out. Fantastic value for money and the waiting staff were so accommodating. We were able to alter the fixed menu to include a vegetarian option and will absolutely return, thanks again.
Amazing food, good value, great service!! good portions, you can see how your food is cooked on the grill, which is really cool. We enjoyed our lunch!! Will be back soon!
Just read all the other reviews,says it all, a wonderful eating experience.Could go on, not going too, just book your table for a superb dining experience, cant fault it in any way.
We had lunch here recently. The service was welcoming and really excellent, the food was absolutely delicious and cooked to order. We really enjoyed the meal and will return on another visit to Hove. Thank you.
We went as a group of ten, the service was superb and the food an equal match.
5* guys, excellent job.
