Portland >Shiraz Restaurant
If you like being ripped off, by all means, go to this place. I like their food, but the woman owner helped herself to more than 20% of my tab every time I ordered lunch, take out, without my authorization. I figured it out and went back, making sure I was putting a ZERO in the tip line and yep - she continued to charge me $3 tip for a $10 lunch, every time. That is THEFT. She's lucky I haven't filed a police report.
Great food. Small location but the owner is very friendly and the food is really really good. The Baklava is nutty and sweet, dripping with honey. The hummus is made on site and the dolmas were hand made. Terrific!
Bad restaurant ,Rude women.
worst restuarant at all ,the women worker was rude ,nasty .plus she stolen my camera when i left it on the table to pay the cost . the food low quality.
her goal is making money not serve the costumers.
make mony by any way even chetting the people.
and looking for new victimes, because no one knows
what is going on there.
the restaurant give the flier to gests on the patio like who works in bus stations ,bad reputation bad every things from A-Z
Best Persian food in all of Portland.
I was just reading the reviews and hated to see some of the negative comments about the owner. First off it's not really a kid friendly place for dine-in, small very busy and loud. Lots of hustle and bustle. So if you are looking for somewhere to coddle the little ones it's not Shiraz.
They are very fast for take-out so take it home for the family. They have way more carry out than dine-in due to space.
The food is the best in town and fairly priced. I have never had better hummus anywhere and I like hummus so have many to compare it to.
The owners are Persian and from a different culture, a hard working take charge type. Some of their employees have been there for several years so they must be fine to work for.
We have always been treated great and have been given perks as frequent customers. Once when I was short on cash he handed me $20 that more than covered what I was short and said pay me back the next time. in was in. He didn't write it down or take my name, we went in again the next week and paid him back.
Even if I was treated poorly (which I never have been) I would go back for the food regardless.
They are opening a second location downtown in the Pearl in March that will have more seating maybe that will be better for the kids, but who cares if it's not go for the amazing food!
You have to try this restaurant!.
Stopped in late last night, the owner was not only happy to see us but never made us feel as though we needed to hurry even though we were past store hours.
Had the Gyro platter and must say the spices were great, portions are larger than expected and staff are very hospitable.
Dont judge everything by one act of error - with regard to the poor review below, everyone has their bad days especially in the the customer service industry as a small business owner!
Not so good. Awful and a Big thumbs down... the owner is extremely rude and will degrade staff and customers... not a good experience at all.
What a find!.
My husband and I love Persian food. We've tried the Oasis in Murray (overpriced) and Blue Tangerine (mildly overpriced, not real authentic) in Bridgeport, and Nicholas (great restaurant but we do like Shiraz better). Shiraz is the best by far. We don't mind the small space. It's nice to see our food being cooked.
I would say this place is probably not for families with young children due to the space issue and the busy-ness of the place.
We still need to try the Kabob House. I've heard it's good, but more spendy.
Rude !. We went there twice. The first time we got a takeout and the food to be very good. The second time we took our whole family (children: 3 yrs old and 1 yr old) for lunch. The owner was extremely rude and had some harsh words for my 3 year old son who was playing on the patio (exact words: Do not destroy my plants and furniture!...the poor buy was only looking around and the owner screamed this out infron of other guests seated outside.) We will NEVER go there again nor recommend this to our community! He even said something rude (you are not our only customers!) when we went to order some side dish). This guy is unbelieveabley rude!
Best Gyros and Kabobs In Town!. The food is amazing. The prices are very affordable. The owner and staff are extremely friendly. I frequent the place... 1 - 2 times a week. There isn't a lot of inside seating, but it is fun to sit at the bar type seating. They have a lot of seating outside when the weather is nice. I highly recommend Shiraz.
