Not just a meal, an experience

I have now been to Dar Essalam three times and have plans to return. We always start with their hot mint tea - regardless of how much you think you'll drink, I recommend getting the large pot, because once you taste this you won't stop.

We have been going to Dar Essalam for several years now, and the food and service are consistently excellent. The staff works hard to develop good relationships with their customers, and it shows. The food is very good, and they are willing and able to customize the spice heat level to your taste. My personal favorite is the oxtail tagine... More

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! Both served with rice or couscous...other traditonal dishes offered. Appetizers, deserts are so delicious and home made! Will be back soon to work... More

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....
