A friend had booked this restaurant, so we were unprepared for what we found there. Our waiter told us not to worry about the starters, we would get all of them (?), we only had to choose our mains. This was a bit confusing, but we went along with it, mostly as we were not sure if this had been... More

Lots of fun and interesting Moroccan setting with belly dancing and above average food. Great place to go before magic show that is attached to restaurant. Fun with family/friends.

This is a really odd restaurant. The service is really good. The food is just above average. The atmosphere seems authentic. And we thought the belly dancing was good... Then the dancing seemed to devolve into something else. I've been to Turkey. I've seen genuine belly dancing not done for tourists. But I've never seen men show dollar bills into... More

Four of us ate here on Saturday Evening, 12 Apr 2014. The setting and atmosphere are unique, and definitely have the feel of Morroco. The service is very good. The food was plentiful and very tasty, and the bread was particularly good. The four of us could not eat all of the food we were served. The value for the... More

After watching the magic show downstairs, which was just amazing, we decided to eat here for a little of a cultural experience. As you enter the room, it feels like going into an authentic Marrakech restaurant. The decor, music, and setting is genuine. We sat at a low brass table and the menu was what we saw often in Morocco.... More

Food was scrumptious! Felt like we dropped into an exotic foreign country. Belly dancer, extremely friendly wait staff and owner. You will NOT be disappointed.

Decided to make this our last night dinner in SF and really glad we did. It was so authentic. More than just dinner, it was pure entertainment as well. Silver table tops, couches, belly dancers, hand cleansing at the table...it was a real world experience for our 12 year old daughter who loved the place. Oh and by the way... More
