Shiraz in Sherman Oaks

  • r

Good morning, Chowhounds! Last night my wife and I and one of our very dear friends enjoyed a fabulous feast at a wonderful Persian restaurant in Sherman Oaks, just west of the 405.

The food was very reasonably priced, the service, superb, and the presentation elegant. What more could one ask. We highly recommend this restaurant, which has two other locations, one in Glendale and another in Westlake Village.

      Well, I have to agree that the original posting does seem way over the top for what is essentially a neighborhood Persian restaurant.

      Nevertheless, while it is hardly well described as "elegant" or serving a "fabulous feast," I have to say that my wife and I have eaten there on several occassions and the food is quite good and the prices are relatively low. I forget its name, but there is a very interesting stew made with eggplant that was very good, as are the kebabs.

      The decor is pink tablecloths with glass tops and mirrors everywhere. There is also entertainment in the form of one of those goofy synthesizer/organs.

      It's certainly not your everday meal.

        I have no ownership interest in Shiraz. I just appreciate a good restaurant, especially a good Persian one..

      2. Ron,

        What dishes at Shiraz did you enjoy the most?

          The dishes we most enjoyed at Shiraz were the tahig with fessenjan;zereshk polo with chicken kabob and Albaloo Polo served with lamb shank. Everything was truly delicious!
