Welcome to Shiraz

We are proud to be Bristol’s only Persian restaurant.

The city of Shiraz is the located in the southwest of Iran on the Rudkhaneye Khoshk seasonal river and is the capital of Fars Province.

Shiraz is known as the city of poets, wine, gardens and flowers and is most likely more than 4,000 years old. Shiraz became a leading centre of the arts and letters, thanks to the encouragement of its ruler and the presence of many Persian scholars and artists.

Shiraz was the capital of Persia during the Zand dynasty from 1750 until 1781, as well as briefly during the Saffarid period.

Shiraz the dark-skinned grape used primarily to produce stunning red wines originated in the city and is now grown throughout the world. The grape was used in the city of Shiraz to produce the famous Shirazi wine before being sent to Rhône, where it would make Syrah, a local French synonym and Shiraz the proper name of the variety.
