The food was great! The lamb is a must try & the Sultan Kabob plate was a great way to try many different flavors. We were met with a friendly staff that continued throughout the entire meal. Everything tasted fresh and well prepared. The tea was also a "Must have". The place was authentic Moroccan décor, & and done very... More

I went with a group so we were able to sample several different dishes. My favorite was the lamb. The dessert was wonderful, with fruit, puff pastry and then ice cream in the middle. My only complaint is the sweetened tea. I had to ask them to make me a pot of plain tea. It was a fun place and... More

Some of the best Moroccan food I've ever had in my life. I have been to all the Moroccan restaurants in downtown Portland and nothing compares to this place. The lamb Tajine was melt in your mouth and the artichoke, lemon with Pea sauce was an explosion of flavor. The Sultan Kabob plate was delicious and a great way to... More

From the warm welcome, to the laughter and welcoming ambiance, to the most exquisite food I have ever had....the list could go on. Do not miss this restaurant! You will not be disappointed. We all had different dishes with the intent to eat family style, but they were so good that everyone only wanted to share a bite, even the... More

Authentic. From the furnishings, to the way the tea is poured. And I haven't even begun to talk about the food. I had to promise my husband the moon to take me to dinner here, because he is not a fan Moroccan food. But he is planning our next time Musts are the lamb shank, the barralia and the Casablanca...

Try the mint tea for sure. Most if not all the entrees include hummus, soup, vegetables, and pita bread. Recommend the tajines. Great service; even opened the door for us entering and exiting the restaurant. Small restaurant, so you may want to get a reservation.

The menu offers authentic dishes. The tajine with lamb shank and choice of sauce is outstanding. Includes hummus starter, soup, marinated vegetables and the main. Service is very friendly, great sense of humor and efficient. We didn't have room for dessert! Will be back next time we are in town.

For anyone who has eaten in the souks of Morocco, Dar Essalam will bring back pleasant memories of authentic Moroccan food. From the fresh mint tea poured from on high so that the scent wafts over the table, to the delicious ox tail tagine with a pea olive sauce, to the final pouring on our hands of orange blossom essence,...

This has because our favorite family restaurant. We have eaten here about 5 times now and every single time we leave smiling. The food is always good, the service is always beyond the expected and personal and the mint tea is delicious and never ending. Try the lamb, try the hen, try any dessert. You will not be disappointed. No... More

Do I write a review about a "neighborhood secret" and lose the secret? Yes! It seems to be getting out, anyway, and this place is worth putting on a "regular list." The ambiance is very nice - it's in a small strip across from a park, but that's all left behind upon walking through the door. A pot of Moroccan... More
