We enjoyed our dinner at Shiraz. The beef rogan josh was excellent (medium spiced) and went well with a glass of Pinot noir. The tandoori chicken was a little dry but still tasty. Great papadams and amazing selection of Indian sweets. I can't go past gulab jamun which was yummy.

Found Shiraz on trip advisor and thought it looked really good, I attempted to order online and it was just a bit of a mission, the website needs an overhaul, I decided to just drive in and order in person. The staff were lovely! They were very busy, good vibes. The meal I ordered was fantastic, I would definitely go... More

Felt like a tasty, not too sweet butter chicken - exactly what we got, plus very friendly, welcoming staff +++

Lunchtime with friends was wonderful as the curry and the service was excellent. The lunchtime $10.90 special was well and truly worth it. We left full and very happy.

We dine there at least once a month and have always been happy with the experience. We have a few favorites but I would really recommend the Chili Chicken. Deserts are nothing special but we don't usually have room left for desert anyway.

Good food but slightly unwelcoming setting. Clean and organised. Disturbing TV doing Bollywood trailer loops. OK service, friendly, but not too interested. Medium prices and choices of drinks. Alright place.

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.
