I on Monday 15th December 2014 for my birthday with a group of about 10 people and everything was absolutely delicious. Really friendly. Had the beef tagine and I was in heaven. Good prices and excellent service. Will definitely be returning.

I would definitely recommend everyone to try this place. A hidden gem, true and great owners, very welcoming and sharing their cultures. You can feel the passion in the food you eat : Try the couscous ! Very authentic experience, a must try to travel a little further than where you already are ! I will go again !
