We had a great experience dining in at Shiraz. They have an extensive menu and never fail to deliver with their delicious food. Loving the selection of sweet treats available too. Helpful and polite service. Would recommended eating here any time, one of the best restaurants in Whangarei.

Another excellent dining experience at Shiraz Haveli! This time we brought a friend along who has gluten-sensitivities to dinner. Most of the curries (if not all) are gluten-free which is fantastic and when in doubt, our knowledgeable server guided us along nicely. Our party of 4 ordered the mixed platter as a starter. The samosa was the only entree that had gluten but the other 3, the tandoor chicken, the onion bhaji and the sheekh kebab were gluten-free. Our friend (a onion bhaji fan exclaimed that the onion bhaji here is the best she's ever had!) I must concur that every dish I have had at this Shiraz Haveli reminds me of authentic Indian meals I have enjoyed in India. For mains, we ordered the malai tikka, lamb dhansak, chicken methi. All the meats were tender and succulent and wonderfully spiced. We ordered the spiciness to be mild to medium to cater for our 7-year old's palate and our server got us some extra chilli for the adults to enjoy some heat! Our server also recommended the paneer jalfrezi as we wanted a veg dish, which was not on the menu - such a treat! We only ordered one naan as there was plenty of rice for 3 adults. The fruit naan (normally called Kashmiri naan in India) had just the right balance of sweetness to counter the savoury curries ordered. We wanted to order the mango lassi minus the sugar but was informed that sugar was already added into the yogurt mixture so we didn't order it. Our server did helpfully suggest that we call ahead next time to order that so they can prepare a sugar-free mango lassi for us next time! That's what is called excellent customer service! The banana smoothie we ended opting for was not too sweet and the perfect balance of the yogurt, banana, milk and their homemade vanilla ice-cream! Yummm!! All in all, this was a wonderful dining experience, even though they were running a little late in service (due to new staff in training).. but this was minor temporary issue which will be sorted out soon. The excellent food and customer service will bring us back again soon!

Oh wow! Is our collective opinion of this restaurant. We had meant to check this establishment out but didn't get round to it until it came up on First Table. And boy are we glad we did! Our server was knowledgable, attentive and an efficient multitasker, taking phone orders, attending to drop-in orders and making sure our group of 3 were well catered for! We ordered the garlic naan, chicken kadhai and a paneer dish which our server recommended which were spot on! The flavours were authentic to my gastronomic recollections of my travels to India. Rightfully so, as the chef (who came out to speak to us after) is from North India but has worked overseas as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and even made some space for properly made gulab jamun which is an art in itself! Highly recommend Shiraz in Walton Street for authentic and delicious Indian food and excellent dining experience! We will be back soon!

We experienced exceptional service. The wait staff were very knowledgeable & were able to assist when choosing the right meal to suit our different tastes.
The food was incredible & the complementary papadum's with mango chutney were a nice touch. Will definitely return.

We were the only people dining in at the booked time, slightly lax in our ability to place orders.
There was more takeaway orders coming through
Food was great once we got the orders right.. A little mix up with regards to spicy ness rating.

We took our daughter and her partner out for a meal at Shiraz and although the restaurant was quiet the service and the meal was lovely. Indian food was not my usual first choice but due to using first table last night I have to say now Indian food is up there with my usual choice of dining out.
The meal was lovely no faults the waiter even suggested a couple of dishes and they were amazing we would highly recommend
Shiraz in Walton street Whangarei. Execellent food and service
