I have been to The Bedouin twice and I will be going again. When you enter you are transported into another world; one full of colours and aromas. The food is totally delicious and the service is friendly and unobtrusive.

We visited last Saturday night, we had booked for 6pm. We ordered our drinks from the friendly waiter, I had Prosecco but I think that next time I will try the Algerian wine. We ordered the Bastilla and Hanouinette for starters, both were so very tasty. For mains we had a Lamb Tadjine and a Veggie Tadjine, both were top... More

We visited Bedouin on a whim (well, my wife's whim actually!) We arrived at about 6:00 and managed to find a parking spot in the nearby short stay car park (free after 5:00!) We ordered the bastilla and hanouinette starters and both proved to be good choices - no complaints! For mains we ordered Tadjine kefte bedaoui with vegetable rice... More

We booked for early on a saturday evening. I had to give my name (the morphologically fiendish word "Ant") several times, spelling it out twice. On the friday before, they rang me up. "Is that Mr Hunt? Hant? Hrnt? We were expecting you at seven!" A comedy of errors which didn't bode well for the evening we had planned. However,... More

I love this restaurant - the food is always high in quality... but unfortunately last night - the waiting time was very long - which is a real shame. The staff were very polite but should not have been put in that position.

Dear sir/madam, We are glad that you enjoyed the food and admit that the last week was exceptionally busy (busiest so far this year) and the majority of customers were walk ins, so it was tough staffing, also the head chef went on paternity leave earlier than expected. If you have been before you will know that we pride ourselves... More

The first day I went here, the specialty of the day was slow-cooked lamb. I must admit that was the optimal choice. It was tender and tasty and served with Moroccan-style bread. Since then I returned many times for what I consider to be one of the best lamb dishes in Cambridge. The early-bird menu option is very good as... More

Mill Road has many eating places, and many different choices of cuisine, and we are slowly making our way up Mill Road towards town. Would we walk-by the Bedoiun? Certainly not every time. The welcome was great, the food varied and able to cope with all manner of diets and food restrictions. Service through out was attentive, but there was... More

First time I've been to Bedouin and I would definitely go back again. The food was fantastic, the lamb fell of the bone, and staffing was very attentive. Came away completely stuffed!

My husband and I went here tonight, the staff are very friendly and the inside of the restaurant is done out like a Bedouin tent - very special. The food was really tasty, and portions quite large (the lamb tagine was too big for me after having a starter). Mains are fairly expensive at around £12 each but we both... More

I've been to Bedouin 3 times in the past year and it has exceeded expectations every single time. The food is top notch, you could order anything on the menu and I guarantee you would enjoy it. The decor is colourful and chilled out. The service is very attentive but also extremely relaxed and friendly. Great for literally any occasion... More
