A spicy vegetarian banquet to queue for

The Moroccan Soup Bar is great: lots of atmosphere and, well, lots of enthusiastic diners, too. So, tip # 1 is to arrive early. There is not much in the way of a formal menu but I dined here with some Soup Bar regulars who assured me only way to go is with the banquet of three courses, which at... read more

This place is always a delight to come to. The soups are great, but I always find the banquets are better to go for: more variety and better value. Plus you get Moroccan Soup Bar's chickpea bake, my absolute favourite dish here. Everything's good here, though, so it's hard to go wrong whatever you order. Make sure you arrive either... More

Went here recently after quite an absence. I was delighted that nothing had changed! $22 for a very large banquet... The chickpea bake was still as delicious as I remembered and my friends (who had never been) loved it all! We are all meat eaters but were completely satisfied and full from the vegetarian fare. Tip, need to be there... More

This is a Melbourne classic. Great place (although I can see it may take some getting used to). You must arrive early to get a table, usually have to leave your name and they'll give you a time to come back. (Heaps of lovely bars around to have a drink while you wait.) The banquet (which I think has just... More

Loved the food and the atmosphere. Get there early for a table. Take your own containers for the leftover food - you won't be able to eat it all.

Home style cooking and feel. Food nice, standouts were the chicken dishes and excellent cous cous.. feel the flavours could have done with more punch, a bit timid. Prices very reasonable. Nice setting, upmarket cafe feel. If I lived locally would be a great meeting place for a quick dinner and chat before heading out.

Amazing.! What more can I say. This place is one of the best finds in Melbourne. The food is incredible. Who would have known that vegetarian food could be so tasty and so flavour some in so many ways. Can't beat this little gem for price, service, quality and quantity. Well worth the wait time to get a table. Come... More

Don't get me wrong not a bad meal but not the hype it deserves. Expensive for what you get. Doesn't take booking so be prepared to wait...usually outside in the cold.

No one likes being told to wait - especially when you are practically dying of starvation after a long commute from interstate. But wait, you must if you want to indulge in the fantastic Moroccan food here! Visiting with first timers, I had to convince them it would all be worth it when the spoken menu gets delivered to your... More

What an amazing place this is! The food is amongst the best vegetarian I've ever had and I'm not veg. We had the $25 banquet which included starters, mains, dessert and tea or coffee!! I don't know how they do it! A feast fit for a king! It opens at six and they don't take bookings so get there at... More
