Shahrazad is a great Middle Eastern experience in America's Midwest. Sitting in a storefront setting, near the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Shahrazad has a great selection of dishes. Chicken, lamb and beef - along with vegetarian selections are plentiful. Friendly service, beer & wine and very fresh and tasty food.

If you are a " meat and potatoes" type of person and you are looking for an ethnic adventure that doesn't take you too far away from your comfort zone, Shahrazad is the place to go in Milwaukee. The Sunday buffet is hard to beat.

We have been coming here for years and are never disappointed. The lunch buffet is very nice with a small but quality selection. This past visit they had some especially nice beef koobideh kabobs and chicken with curry, couscous (ok), rice (great) and lots of tasty salads..On other visits they had an amazing lentil soup. Everything is always fresh and... More

Shahrazad offers very good Middle East and Mediterranean cuisine. You can call and have it to go as well. The beef and chicken options are very good.

Fair service, average food. Acceptable but nothing to write home about. The lentil soup had good flavor. The red sauce that smothered the shrimp and chicken kabob was flavor free.

Visiting from Michigan. We ran across this place and decided to give it a chance. From beginning the service was good. They were very accommodating, especially when all three kids didn't like the soup that came with the meal..they changed it to salad. The falafel was great for the appetiser. Problems starred with our main meal. I ordered the lamp... More

I enjoy coming here for lunch. The service is good and the quality of the food is fresh and tasty. I always order the vegetarian lentil soup and the vegetarian plate. The hummus is the best hummus I have ever tasted. I always order a plate of rice and the saffron they use gives the rice a very nice flavor.... More

Enjoyed their dinner food recently. Vegetarian lentil soup was good. Babaganoush was excellent. Falafel and stuffed grape leaves were pretty good, too. The pita bread was oddly not fresh; it was clearly store-bought and not made there. Note that their website is way, way out of date and they have different foods on their actual menu than you see online.... More

Went for lunch, had the buffet. Fairly well stocked. Was a bit surprised by the spicy seasoning on the salad. Wish they had more main dishes on the buffet.

This will be a review of two Middle Eastern eateries in fairly close proximity to one another, the Casablanca on Brady St. and the Shaharazad on Oakland Ave. Both are fine, and my own rating would have the Casablanca as a 4 star and the Sharazad as a 5 star. My wife is just the opposite, so the two spots... More
