Unlike some of the other people who said there are bugs there, I completely disagree. All of my friends and their families eat there as well do I. I have been there plenty of times, and have not once seen a bug. The doors are always open,s

I've been to Shirin before and I loved it so I decided to invite my family here for dinner after a long day of hanging out all over LA. There was eight of us and we were promptly seated and served appetizers (Persian salad and hummus) which we all thought was delicious. Our main dishes (mostly kebobs) were not bad as well. Granted, we were all really hungry when we came here but after we left my family had nothing but good things to say about Shirin!

Been going to this restaurant for over 10 years, I was overcharged in January on my credit card. instead of $48.00 they charged me $84.00 I have been back several times but the owner still hasn't given me the $36.00 back. I am now seeking anyone else that has been over charged by this restaurant to contact me. At first I thought it was a genuine mistake, now I need to know if anyone else has been overcharged?

Not a great way to keep a regular client!!!!!

This is the best Iranian food you're going to find in LA, other than some home cooking at someone's house. I just want to say that I go here all the time & I consistently have a very different experience than the reviewer below me. There have been times where the people I am with did not care for the food we received & the waiter always comes up and asks if everything was OK with the food (because he saw it wasn't eaten). If we explain we just didn't like it, it is immediately removed from the bill. That is what SERVICE is all about! I am sorry that some people had a bad experience at Shirin but I am guessing that their encounters were the exception as I have never been treated poorly at this restaurant. Best Persian food in LA. Period. If you find a better Persian restaurant, then post it here & let's do some comparisons! This place has a good reputation and it deserves it.

This is by far the worst restaurant for food and service. If you like good food and a nice ambiance without rude service then this is not the place for you. I?ve been back to this restaurant on a few occasions and always wonder why I go back, but this time I?ve had enough and need to let the public know. This place is dirty the food is mediocre. The staff is more than happy to let you know they don?t care if you are dissatisfied and you should be grateful they even brought you a glass of dirty water. Now I know why I spend the next hour after I eat there in the restroom?SERIOUSLY!!!! I will NEVER go back.

This is simply the best Persian food you're going to find in California. If anyone tells you that another restaurant is better than this place, they are completely confused and should be disregarded. Not only is the food here on another level (the only comparable kabob is at Raffi's in Glendale), but the prices and service are right up there as well. The only bad part is that since I have eaten at Shirin, any other Persian place I try to go to is a total joke and waste of time. If you don't believe me, order the Kashkebadamjan at Shirin & then look at the microwaved sh!t that other restaurants will try to serve you (at higher prices). The food at Shirin really seems like it's homemade and not a bunch of frozen trash...this is evident in the subtle differences in taste the food will have on different days. This is the place to go for all your Persian cravings.

Pros: The menu, prices & service...Delivery is a plus as well.

Cons: The only location is in Woodland Hills.

We had dinner on Saturday night, it was very busy and they had live music. The food was excellent and so much that we took the rest of it home, the price was very good and we enjoyed it very much. I highly recomend it

We went there for dinner it was very nice and clean with " A" rating on the wall. We got complimintary bread and butter, when the food came the portions were huge and it was the best food I ever had in my life, the tast was original and refreshing. The service was great and over all everything was perfect. Also, the price was very reasonable for the food that you get. I highly recommend this place.

I had to dispose of two insecets before they crawled onto my wife. The food was actually not bad but we had lost our appetite before the main course got there. We didn't see the second one until we were waiting for the check and we were trying to give the place the benefit of the doubt. The service was lacking a good bit as well. We were never offered a refill on our drinks even after attempting to flag down the waitress for 20 minutes. We will not return to this restaurant and would never recommend it to anyone. The insects were the little German kind more indicative of an infestation than a random occurance. We are not normally the complaining type and paid our bill even on this trip but we really felt this place was bad.

I was really looking forward to trying this highly rated local restaurant! We went on a week night and things were slow...including the service. I would have ignored this normally, but during the 45 mintues I sat in the booth two insects (I cannot use certain words on this site I guess) approached me and needed to be taken care of (again I had to edit my words). I attempted to eat the food, which was actually very good, but could not put it down after the previously mentioned experience. I probably will never return to this location. I want my money back!

Shirin is a Persian restaurant and one of the few restaurants that I would ever give a 5 star rating to. They have been a family favorite of ours for years! Our favorite items are the kebabs, specifically the beef and chicken koubideh. Their dill rice is absolutely delicious, too. Shirin's customer service is so wonderful that you feel like family when you are there. Make sure you go with an empty stomach!

I was here last month and the customer service in this place was lousy. It took a while to acknowledge me that I was there. Say about 3 minutes later, I ask for a menu and later I stated what I wanted. No flexibility of an option to subtitute persian salad or add something else different on the menu. Plus the food took too long as I kid almost took a nap for the wait. I say 30 minutes for waiting on the food which is in my opinion, way too long. Oh well. Food is okey and could be better.

The restaurant serves alot of food for a great price - averaging about $10 to $15 per person, you get live music, great food and great service. The weekends can be a little rough and quite crowded, so call ahead. The parking is also limited. A very unique restaurant because it is great for intimate gatherings, family events or even large parties! The salads! The fresh naan. The kebobs are the best in the valley! They quite literally melt in your mouth! Go and enjoy! Bon appetit!

If you like Persian food then I guess you might like Shirin. Most of my Persian friends seem to enjoy them. However, I personally did not care for the food there. Don't think I would go there again.
