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

I have been here twice now, once with my son who is a real foodie, and once with girlfriends. Couldn't believe there was such a wonderful place is such a sleepy town. I thought the lamb Tisane was out of this world. Also had a spinach dish which was excellent as well. The staff is knowledgeable and the owner checks... More

Our favorite restaurant in Wilsonville! We have dined here multiple times, by ourselves, with family and with out-of-town guests. Consistently excellent food and wonderful service. The cook often visits the dining area to make sure you are happy, making personal suggestions and customizing your dish. I usually order a favorite, like kabobs. My husband, more adventurous, usually differs to the... More

My rating is 4.5 and not 5/5. Had lunch at this place. Great mint tea. Awesome pita and hummus which was complimentary. Are shrimp kobbabs. Will not say it was awesome wanting me for more, but was just as it should have been. Saffron rice was nice. I also tasted some spinach dish (do not remember the name) which was... More

This is a great secret in Wilsonville. It's a full-family endeavor, and they are very happy to help you navigate the menu. The food is quite good, you will leave with a full belly and good vibes.
