Good value and great food.

As a tablo of 4, we were delighted with every dish we ordered. THe flavours in the authentic dishes were fabulous and the service and decor were great. Would definately return. Be aware - No Cards - only CASH! Well worth the trip to an ATM though!

Visited this restaurant during our last summer holiday in 2014. It was an after lunch time and were welcome with no buts or we only serve until 2, 2.30, 3pm speech like many restaurants in cambridge usually do. The restaurant simulates a Bedouin tent giving it that exotic feel we need in the city. The food was excellent and well... More

Step out of Mill Road into the Bedouin Restaurant and it is like stepping into a Bedouin tent in North Africa. The food is superb and the service is excellent. An amazing menu which makes choosing difficult as there care so many dishes to choose from. Highly recommend this restaurant, but be sure you book in advance as it is... More

When in Cambridge I don't know where to go with my boys.....this was a genuine find! Great staff with friendly welcome..... There was no rush throughout which suits us. The mix of starters were lovely, I could have just stuck with nibbling them.....great with the bread served. All the mains lived up to the flavours hoped for, must remember more... More

It's a unique place, with different kind of food. If you are looking for something new, try it. The service is good, and the place is well presented and maintained. I would say that the starters are very small, even for a starter, and that Lemonade means Schweppes lemonade, not exactly what you expect when you order lemonade.

Hi there, We are happy that you enjoyed your meal, i am surprised that you didn't find starters large enough to be honest, for around £5.00. I eat out a lot and am sometimes shocked about the size of starters but at a higher price and its certainly not the reflection we want from our customers. We will certainly look... More

Excellent north African food... very good menu and very tasty food. The atmosphere is great with traditional decor.... and excellent service. I think the staff are of Algerian origin - given the atmosphere when England were playing Algeria in the world cup !! So genuine authentic North African food.

We wanted something different so came to this North African restaurant. When we booked we were told it was cash only - very helpful or we would have been washing dishes. Entering, we felt like we were in a Bedouin tent. Comfy cushions and low tables - which took a bit of getting used to. We were greeted warmly and... More

So I've been going past this restaurant many many times for the last few years and it was never welcoming enough to go in. The outside is too dark and inside looks so small. However one of the girls planned to eat out here for her birthday. Was welcomed into the restaurant by happy looking staff. Was seated straight away... More

Hi, We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience at Bedouin. It's a shame that you were not able to have the lamb cutlets, it was a Sunday and occasionally an item or two will be unavailable due to high demand and a busy weekend. At least this shows that we do not use frozen or keep mass amounts... More
