I have to say that as someone who has recently relocated to the Portland area, I was eager to try out Shiraz for its Persian entrees. Needless to say not only was the food bad but the service was downright horrible. The staff seems really overworked and tense. The owner is extremely rude and was offended that I spoke to him in English rather than Persian. I am more dominant in English than Farsi and I felt that he was really crude and out of place to criticise me. Anyways, even if you can tolerate the crude owner, the kabobs were downright leathery and gross. The rice was dry and old, which is terrible for Persian cuisine. If anyone here truly wants fresh, and tasty Persian/Medi food, I highly recommend Blue Tangerine in the Bridgeport shopping center. Best to all!
Cons: rude owner, terrible food, tight place, overworked staff
