Shiraz welcomes diners to a world of exotic and beautiful Persian culture. It is located at Forum The Shopping Mall and offers diners the taste of Persian Cuisine. Happy Hour, which was from 5:30-8:30 pm, there is a promotion of 1 for 1 German beer.
I visited this place multiple times and I think it is extremely good. The main reason is the food. I had the premium lamb kebab and the beef kebab whenever I went but I plan on trying their german sausages. The kebabs are brilliant: nicely wrapped, juicy flavor and the sauces offered really adds flavor. (If you get the premium lamb kebab, my strong recommendation is that you get the hummus sauce and the garlic yoghurt sauce because it tastes amazing.
However, if you are in a hurry do not go there unless there is no line. I went three times and it had a line twice which meant there was quite a wait those two times. I am not the only one who feels this way, the man behind me also felt the same way. There are two people working there: 1 lady working at the counter and 1 man doing the cooking and assembling of wraps. The lady at the counter is rather friendly. The man doing the cooking and assembling is not particularly smiley unless you smile at him first. However this is very minor. Also, if you need sauce for your fries, he is willing to allow you to use the same variety of sauces used for kebabs and sausages at no extra cost, with no limit.
The ambience is quite nice as you get to sit and watch as people stroll by, as Orchard Road is more than busy and hectic. The price is slightly steep however. For a kebab alone it costs between $8.50 and $10.50 and with fries and drink will amount to up to $14. German sausage is a bit cheaper though for those who do not wish to spend so much. It costs $6.80 for a sausage with salad or bun, and it costs $10.00 for sausage with salad or bun + fries + drink. Overall, extremely good experience, I highly recommend it.
Staff has changed and perhaps the new guys (especially the cooks) are pretty rude.
Quality of shawarma has gone down drastically. No sense of customer service what so ever. For 20 minutes no one came to clean the table despite multiple reminders and the wraps were too dry.
Bad to see a good place turning downside because of the staff.

Review is for Shiraz - the one outside of TAKASHIMAYA.
Given the dearth of kebab shops in singapore, this place was a welcome sight for me. The place looks great and given that it has set up more shops, it seems singaporeans are catching on to kebabs. With regard to the food, the kebab taste was only so-so - the meat itsef was rather salty and flavours are not apparent. For the price they are charging (almost 10 bucks), the serving size, which is rather small, is not justified. It seems their target market are the tourists - which is ot a bad thing.I liked the hummus sauce the best - it saved the kebab in my opinion.
