Who We Are
Shahrazad restaurant was founded in 1993. Since then it has served as a pillar of ethnic and cultural diversity to Milwaukee’s culinary scene bringing authentic Persian and Arabian food.
Aromatic, delicious, exotic, and comforting are all words that can be used to describe Persian cuisine. Ancient Persia was one of the world’s greatest empires and oldest cultures. Right at the heart of the ancient spice trading routes, Persian cuisine evolved from this rich and deep heritage and exchange of cultures. Shahrazad is Milwaukee’s only restaurant which serves Persian cuisine.
At Shahrazad, we focus on only 3 things: award-winning, authentic food, warm hospitality, and a inviting, family-friendly atmosphere. Come join us today with your family and friends for some great memories and delicious eats.

The best shwarmas I've ever eaten! I special order the pita separate as a to go order & it's always right! Everyone treats me like I work there...in a good way lol
Every time my husband and I eat at another Middle Eastern restaurant in the city I wish we were eating here instead! The restaurant is pretty small but don't let the ambiance fool you, the kitchen is really all you need. The chicken kebab combo is my absolute favorite. The chicken breast chunks are fresh and so very flavorful. The ground chicken kebab is mouthwatering and balances the perfect amount of flavor and oiliness. The rice is of course fabulous as well, topped with buttery saffron, how could you go wrong? I definitely recommend this restaurant for any meal of the day!
They have a great Sunday buffet. Food is fresh and authentic. Their rose water lemonade is awesome. The owner always welcomes us and waits on us hand and foot. He is very nice and social. Would definately go back.
Love this place. Good owners, good service, delicious food. Their buffet is a great deal. My Tunisian friend rates this place as the most authentic in the city. I agree.
I can't explain how good their food was. The service was perfectly sweet and generous. They give you enough food per dish to have sufficient leftovers. I had the lamb with the special tahini sauce and couldn't stop moaning about it. The seasoning and consistency were authentic and full of flavor. Ah!!! I am going to start a coin jar to recurrently visit in the future.
I've been going to this restaurant for 16 years now and I absolutely CRAVE it. It is that good. I tend to get the lentil soup and a vegetarian medley that includes stuffed grape leaves (yalenjee), hummus, falafel, baba ghanouj and tabuli. Yum!
My wife and I frequent this restaurant often. It is very family friendly, unlike other restaurants which serve this genre of food in town. Shahrazad is an outstanding restaurant with really unique and delicious food. A true gem for Milwaukee. The chicken kababs, shawarma, and lentil soup are incredible! I always receive great service there and the owners are very nice and hospitable people. Highly recommended!
