A clean restaurant with absoutely delllllllicious food, bragging original middle eastern dishes, with a nice environment and music which puts you in a middle eastern environment from the moment you step in. Every dish from the ones I have tried has its distinctive taste which is so close to the original one I used to have, as a middle eastern. Food was fresh and well cooked. Their bread is nice, but probably needs some work on it to serve it fresher and a little bigger sized. I felt at home the few times I went there anyway.
For those who are into hooka, spending nice chat times with friends, with some quality food compared to what Johor's restaurants can offer, this place never disappoints a visitor.

the food quality was average. the kebab was not fresh and seemed to have been sitting around and then warmed up prior to being served. the dough was quite poor in taste.
the portions were decent size.

bottom line, this restaurant is expensive for the quality of meal they serve.

Shahrzad restaurant has positively surprised me. Here you can find good quality food (rare in this region), and have a pleasant meal, rather than just filling your stomach.
The menu includes a wide variety of dishes from the persian and arab tradition. I have tried 6-7 of them, and they were all properly prepared in my opinion. Every dish had its peculiar taste, and it was a pleasure to discover them. Another plus of this place is that the food is not ultra-spicy.
In conclusion, i think that Shahrzad is a good restaurant, and i suggest it to those living in or visiting Johor Bahru.

I've been living here in Perth, Australia for two years. one of the most favorite activities of Perth people is going to restaurants, so mine is. I should say I still have not found any restaurant in Perth better than SHAHRZAD restaurant in Johor. I experienced a wonderful, fantastic incredible night at Shahrzad restaurant and recommend it to all who want to visit Malaysia and have a wonderful night there dinning out.

If you are fan of kebabs, this place does not disappoint you.
Specially the lamb cutlet which is just perfect.
My husband had chicken kebab and he was so pleased with its taste.
The interior ambience is not that special( outdoor dining place is much better) and the food is a little pricy but the beautiful lamb cutlet made all up for me!
I love Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, in particular when it comes to Persian cuisine and this one is one of the best.
