I have to say I love to add couscous in almost everything I eat and have had a hard time looking for a restaurant in HCMC that serves good north african cuisine. Now I found it.

We were greeted by the owner who was exceptionally polite and friendly. I myself am a huge couscous fan and have previously tried many couscous restaurants in HCMC, but this place served it the best.

Best Middle-Eastern/Mediterranean food in town. Tucked away and a bit hard to find, but well worth the search. Highly recommended.

Went here because of the reviews for TripAdvisor, and were not disappointed. Great bread and dips starter, fantastic lamb couscous and a very nice chicken tajine. The below ground locale makes for a nice atmosphere. Good service too. Could definitely go back here.

I liked the atmosphere and friendliness of the owner. Exotic food for an asian family. I enjoyed it very much and thought it was worth trying. Price was very reasonable. A + for service as well. I think the waitress there is well trained.
