My husband and I had dinner last night at Shanaz, we had the worst service I have ever experienced. It was also over an hour and a half to have a simple dinner. It all started with our waitress telling us we were going to...More

We had a very bad dining experience here. First, the appetizer plates were dirty so we had to request clean ones. Then there was a big black hair in the middle of the fried macaroni and cheese ball. That pretty much ruined our appetites. To...More
