Shandiz House of Kabob - Peachtree Parkway Norcross Atlanta Georgia

You can find Shandiz House of Kabob at 5270 Peachtree Pkwy, Norcross, GA 30092 in the Interlochen Shopping Center near Peachtree Corners. This shopping center is anchored by the newly opened Earth Fare. Parking is in the large lot in front of the shopping center - if you're lucky you can park in front of the restaurant, but note that there's the pick-up/drop-off area that limits the parking.






Shandiz is a Persian restaurant that serves up Mediterranean meals with more of a Persian influence. I found this place quite by accident - I was waiting to be seated at the Flying Biscuit at the end of the shopping center and decided to explore a bit while waiting to be seated. I came into Shandiz early in the weekend and noticed the buffet. Looking around it was quite impressive with many kabob choices and delicious eggplant dips and other Persian selections. I took a few snaps with a promise to return later.





I finally had a chance to come by during the evening with some friends. The restaurant is on the small side but clean and well maintained. The interior is simple and tasteful and the people running the place are extremely nice and helpful. The menu features many of the same items you see at my favorite Persian restaurant, Rumi's on Roswell Rd, but a bit less expensive. Nice to have Persian options near Norcross and the Forum.




We decided on something basic and went with the gyro plates and a Combo Appetizer with three items: Dolmas, Felafel and Mirza Ghasemi. Everything was terrific and the portions quite large and filling. They also serve beer and wine here.



Service at Shandiz is also very good - as you would expect from a family owned-and-operated business. The next time I'll make sure the check out the kabobs - I'm hoping to come by during the buffet on a weekend so I can sample as much of their fare as possible.
