Armenian Home cooking – If you're not in a hurry, this family run restaurant is the place to be! It's a no frill restaurant with lots of choices from their menu and occasionally specials. Their portions are large and the prices are low. Everything I've ever ordered has been wonderful!! I go for dinner, I hear lunch time is really busy!
Slow service, sad service – I've been a regular here for years and while the food is generally very good, the service has always been absurdly slow (plan to be there for over an hour, and you'll have to ask for the check, usually more than once). The food was good enough that I've planned around the service issue (I only go if I know I don't have a post-lunch appointment). But the latest incident at what used to be one of my staple lunch spots will cause me to drop it from my list and head across the street to the cozier, and slightly pricier, El Basha. After ordering sandwiches "with no cheese" and I actually say "no cheese" for over 4 years from this eatery, I bit into a cheese filled sandwich this afternoon. I know I'm probably less "tolerant," than others, but I think that any eatery in business today should be able to understand the significance of someone ordering something "without cheese (or anything else)" -- for most of us, it's because we can't eat it. It makes us sick. The "slow" service has taken on a whole new meaning. If you have to wait 30 minutes for a sandwich, they should at least get the order right.
Authentic Armenian Home Style Cooking-Lunch is the City's Best Bargain Quality+Value! – Shiraz is the go to place in the city for Armenian and Middle Eastern home style cooking. At any given day Armenian, Greek, French and English speaking patrons flood this gem of a restaurant for a bit of authentic, homestyle fare. The Shiraz does not dissapoint. The menu has all the standards, the usual array of kebabs and kibbee. The pilaf is served hot and buttery, salads, greek style egg and lemon soup is pure comfort food, hearty stews and their famously popular roll up sandwiches are great fast food take out-(enough for two). An unusually tasty selection of vegetarian fare; hummus, eggplant dips, vegetable roll ups and lentil pilafs to name a few. Enjoy scooping out the mezza style appetizers with the freshest bread in the city...a generous basketful.
The salads are crisp, fresh and oversized. Love the Greek salad with the Lamb Kebab!
My very favorite is the Armenian burger called a "Losh Kebab" is the best value in the city at 7.50 during lunch it is served with choice of salad or soup. Enough to take home for a late night snack!
The tahn is a tart ice cold yogurt drink that is pleasntly tart, rich and addictive.
I leave the review of desserts to another as I have never had room to indulge!
The Shiraz offers the best Middle Eastern Food in the city served up by a cheerful, accomodating wait staff.
