Marvelous Morrocan cuisine!

An awesome find! Dar Essalem is a family operated business, prepares traditonal Morrocan meals. They offer 2 delicious out of this world "Specials" of braised oxtail served with eggplant/olive sauce and braised lamb shank with apricot sauce!

after so many amazing reviews on this place I think I expected a little bit more...the Hummus Supreme was good, but not as good nor the portion as generous as other establishments. I told the server that I was vegan and kindly asked what he recommended that would be appropriate for my diet-he laughed and then recommended meat anyway. I... More

My wife and I have dined at Dar Essalam since it opened many years ago. We have never been disappointed. The menu is limited, but the choices are exceptional. I highly recommend the lamb terrine. There are several ways to order this, savory, spicy and HOT! The waiters (sons of the owner) will advise you as respects the degree of... More

My husband and I have traveled to Morocco a few times and had fine cuisine along with experiencing the culture. We were encouraged to visit Dar Essalam in Wilsonville, Oregon when we purchased our new car at Weston Buick, GMC. We have taken several friends there since! It feels like Morocco, is owned by Moroccans, and the food and decor... More

I love this place! The decor, service and food are consistently excellent and is on my top 2 list for the Wilsonville area. For lunch, the Gryros w/salad are the best around and if you are on your lunch hour, service is prompt. For dinner, everything is good but the Lamb Shank is my favorite. The hot tea is amazing....

My wife had found this restaurant yesterday while assisting some students research restaurants on the internet. The website was very informative and we were able to find it easily from the directions noted. It definitely is very small…and extremely popular. We were the first ones there for their limited dining hours on a Friday night. WIthin half an hour, there... More

5 months ago my wife and I had enjoyed an excellent lunch at a restaurant in Tangier, Morocco. (I have visited Morocco 3 times over the years) The Dar Essalam in Wilsonville is less than 10 miles from our house so we decided to give it a try. It was good that we made reservations because at 11;30 AM most... More

This place was the best place that I have been in Wilsonville for lunch so far. The food is slightly pricey, but also delicious and seems to be very healthy. We had the hummus plate as an appetizer and it was great. It is much different than the Mediterranean hummus that I have had before. It is sweeter, but delicious.... More

Five of us gathered here for a superior meal in an well-appointed setting. We were warmly greeted and quickly served a warm tea. Seeing the size of the group, it was suggested we simply be given a selection of dishes to share around the table. We had a plate of fish kebabs, a plate of meat kebabs, saffron rice, a... More
