I haven’t eaten Moroccan food often so I tried the Tagine, with lamb. It was extremely good. Really good and different. The restaurant is a bring your own for booze and luckily there is an off licence over the road. Really good and different.

We wanted to have Middle Eastern food and ventured to Rotana. Great place for your middle eastern cravings. Lovely food place in labyrinth of streets. Do try the sheesha (hookah)

In a city of many shisha bars and cafes ..how you are welcomed and looked after is as important as the quality of shisha...luckily this place has both and some top Arabic Coffee and food to boot!!.. As regulars here I can definitely say youll find it hard to beat in brighton or london!!...especially if you like to people watch... More

If you want to sample amazing food in a traditional Arabic setting then head for this restaurant at the bottom end of Preston Street.We all had Mezze to start which would have done all four of us but not realising how generous the serving would be ,we then had different lamb dishes to follow .All superb and highly recommend you...

It's always useful to check out the regulars in any restaurant and, when you see how many Arabic customers were smoking their pipes outside or how many were dining at 5pm, then you can expect a good experience. The mint tea was minty, the mixed meze was tasty and filling - and the service was bang on. Great value for... More

Been here with my wife on all three trips to Brighton and am never disappointed...once you get accustomed to the unusual vibe of feeling like you have walked into someone's living room where the hosts friends and family are hanging out, it's pretty cool...with byob in place, a saving is already guaranteed...just nip,across the road to the shop opposite and...

The grills and kebabs were freshly prepared. All very tasty, accompanied by french fries or salad. Salad had too much iceberg lettuce, but were otherwise good, as were fries. Waiter pleasant, and service in general good.

Three of us went on a Thursday night on the occasion of someone's birthday. The waiter showed us to our table and proffered menus. When one of our party produced a bottle of wine (the establishment has a 'bring your own bottle' policy) I got the impression that the waiter was offended and opened the bottle reluctantly. This feeling was... More

Firstly orders taken we sat and waited. We thought it was a nice touch to be offered complimentary nibbles to start. We tucked into the bowl of hummus and meat thingy only to have it snatched away mid fork full. They had served us someone else's food! I was somewhat amused as this food was given a minute or two...
