Working downtown for many decades, I still run into people who have no idea what or where Shah Jee's is. The restaurant is in Milwaukee's East-Town business district in the basement of an office building on Jefferson Street. I describe the experience as "cafeteria style"....More

The lunch special gets you chicken, rice, another side and a drink for $8. The portions are generous and full of flavors. For an extra dollar, you can get fresh roti. Always a line so get there early.
