Omar designed this, Abdullah did the food and they are both extremely talented and creative. It is always good and a perfect spot for a private party. They also own Barbes right down the block and another Gem. You cannot go wrong here ( or there ! ).

Wow! From start to finish this was amazing. The food, the atmosphere, service and belly dancing were top notch. Check this place out. Belly dancing at 9:30 pm.

Wow, what a score to find this place. . Looked for someplace to satisfy a finicky diet (no dairy and thankfully not me) and this place was perfect. I had the lamb brochette (kebab) and we share a sampler hummus plate. Wife had shrimp in Moroccan garlic sauce. Mine was the best.. So full of wonderful flavor. Hers was also... More

I feel this place deserves 4.5 stars and have been a few times. The food is of high quality with a good selection of small or larger plates. Good drinks selection and a large room at the back where you can smoke shisha and, at weekends, see live music and dancing. The staff here are excellent and I will give... More

We booked just a day before on opentable for a birthday dinner for 5 people. The moment we arrived we were greeted by the friendly staff and a warm and cozy environment. We were escorted to an even cozier backroom decorated in the beautiful Moroccan style. We did not know it was also a hookah lounge and were worried it... More

The wife and I wanted a last minute dinner. We found the restaurant on opentable. The food was outstanding probably best hummus I ever ate. Atmosphere was great. The owner came over and greeted us. Definitely will be back.

We were a group of 4 and had a reservation at 7pm so it was still early. We were seated right away in a cute back room area. The decor and ambiance is very cool and a great place to just chill. I thought the food was pricey and standard (and that's my people's food so I know what is... More

Our meal was very tasty...I ordered a whole fish with Moroccan spices, very good...hummus good, too. A little disappointed as the bar could not make a bloody mary. The wait staff was EXCELLENT! W had a very large party, 20 of us and they were very friendly and attentive. I would choose to eat here again in the future.
