Shandeez Restaurant ~ Persian - Fairfield

What is it about Persian culture? We're novices on the subject, all we know is that every Persian restaurant in Sydney is run by super lovely folks and full of super cheery customers that make you feel welcome.

Not us. And not anyone else really, it was near empty whenever we walked by.
