Singapore’s Clarke Quay is an action packed spot at any time of day or night. With the addition of Shiraz to the dining scene along River Valley Road, not only do Singaporeans out for the night (or lunch for that matter) have incredible contemporary Iranian and Persian food to explore, but they also have the chance to be pampered by Persian hospitality and entertainment. Shiraz’ chefs are devotees of the fire gods of old, and can chargrill a skewer to perfection (Singapore’s Tatler agrees), but expect your meal to come with a free show, too – Shiraz put on traditional dances as well.
There’s something different in the air down Singapore’s River Valley Road of late. It’s the unmistakable aroma of Persian spices and smoky chargrilled meats and vegetables coming from the kitchen of Shiraz. Signature skewers like the Shiraz lari chicken, boneless chicken leg in yoghurt and herbs, and lamb kubideh, ground char-grilled lamb, are ever popular. Seafood fans will love the meigu kebab, jumbo prawns in Persian herbs, and the darya kebab, daily catch of fish marinated in the chef’s special secret recipe. These and the shandiz, Mashady-style marinated lamb chops, are amongst the best dishes on offer at this Clarke Quay Persian restaurant.
Shiraz are well aware of the long and rich history of Persian cuisine, a millennia-old tradition that has been enriched by imperial patronage into a highly refined cultural practice. Fragrant rice, nuts and herbs combine with meat and vegetables and, with the addition of exotic spices like saffron and dried bitter limes, Persian cuisine done right – as it most certainly is at Singapore’s Shiraz – is a delight to behold and to indulge in. Shiraz itself is named for the ancient city that was an imperial Persian capital, a city that also gives its name to the oldest known wine, which of course is well represented on Shiraz’ drinks list. Without a doubt, those looking for premium Persian and Iranian cuisine should pay a visit to Shiraz’ River Valley Road, Clarke Quay restaurant.
Quality food but you have to pay for it. All dishes all good cuts of meat. Recommend if want quality food. Left very satisfied. Thanks
Good food, friendly service and affordable prices! Value for money and definitely patronize Shiraz again for our future night outs! Keep up the good service Team Shiraz!
The Staff were very helpful and the food was excellent. This is the best Persian Restaurant I have eaten at and I encourage others when in Singapore to visit this Restaurant.
Great experience. Perfect service and good taste. Fresh food and environment. I really recomend the place. Only a few dollars more expensive than its value
We couldn't find Shiraz and so we called the restaurant. Raju, the Snr Restn Manager, offered to meet us at a point to lead us to the restaurant. Unexpected exception good service that wow us. We have a good dinner...food was good...bellydance performance was awesome...good services throughout the whole night. It was a birthday dinner. Raju organised a birthday bellydance for my bff, not forgetting the birthday cake and photography! Wow wow wow....we were blown away by their friendly good service! Definitely...we will be back to Shiraz!
Excellent meat quality. Warm service from staff. Belly dancing performance quite a bit of an inconvenience for indoor customers though. Their performance blocked the exit and entrance of the restaurant and seemed to be directed to people walking by instead of the patrons in the restaurant. Their performance could thus be done elsewhere maybe at the takeaway branch few doors down the stretch. Restaurant could also do with a better authentic belly dancer as well.
Great service. Great food. A wee bit noisy. Would be great if someone took new clients through the menu and make recommendations. If you are not Michelin star rated, please DONT go for it. Word of mouth rating is much better. Michelin star rating is a put-off for me
Great food with authentic Persian taste!! True to their company's name and motto, the restaurant standard in terms of service and quality is above average. Always a good spot to bring my foreign friends over for a nice and presentable dinner, at the same time show them around CQ.
we booked a table for 11 persons. Helpful staff in accommodating request and suggesting the right amount of food. The meat were tender and with the juice in it. Great food that goes well with the pita bread.
Food, environment, service - all is pretty good. The only a bit of disadvantage, the music is getting too loud that it is impossible to keep conversation. Otherwise, it's one one of the best restaurants in Singapore
