Beware the food is very expensive with small portions. The Royal dish was $26.95 which had 1 chicken drumstick, 1 small lamb sausage, 1 little piece of lamb, 1 piece of carrot over couscous with a brown gravy. They said it was for 2 people but there was barely enough for one light eater. The lamb appetizer wrapped in phyllo... More

Disappointed. Our waitress was also the bartender and it was near impossible to get her attention. After 1.5 hours and still not getting our entrees we left. We had the mezzo platter appetizer which was just okay. Look elsewhere.

Had a delicious dinner 7/19/14 at Tagine. We started with little bites of toasted bread with 2 kinds of spreads: harissa and "green sauce"--garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil. Enjoyed lamb couscous--a big lamb shank with many vegetable on top of couscous--and a vegetable tagine. The currants and cinnamon in the tagine made it aromatic. A slightly hot-flavored sauce came...

The food is not bad but it is overpriced, in addition, the desserts on line are $8.50-9.50, in person you will pay $12-13, prices are different on the printed menu. If you are looking for the authentic Moroccan ambiance & atmosphere you will not find it there, the decoration lacks taste and refinement. The young lady who waited us was... More

Went on Saturday Night because I discovered Moroccan Tagine dishes and love it. This place did not disappoint. Right off Times Sq. I had chicken tagine and my vegetarian GF had cous-cous dish. I used some of her dish with my tagine because they did not give rice with the tagine. They should! Both very tasty though - had 2... More

My husband and I found this little gem by accident. We went in and the decor was beautiful. It was lunch time and there weren't many people there so we had our pick of tables. We ordered some Moroccan sangria, which was spicy and addictive. We were served these beautiful loaves of bread with some incredibly tasty dipping sauces. We... More

We were there on a business dinner! They had great atmosphere and service, but most of the dishes were uneatable... Anyways the belly dancers came during the dinner and that was the highlight. We won't go there again!

My daughter and I tried this place after reading about it on Groupon. We had lamb borek,( a type of wrap), chicken casablance (made and delivered to the table in conical pottery), sangria (freshly made), bread w/dipping sauces (warm and very delicious). All was fresh and flavorful. The decor is very authentic and interesting and the staff was very attentive.

Stumbled in this Moroccan restaurant/lounge after midnight on the way home after dinner and stayed until nearly 3am on a Friday night. They said the best time to come was late dinner hours, when belly dancers performed. Having said that, the musicians were still playing energetically, so we ordered some drinks and a hookah. Haven't smoked in years and never... More

This place is one of my worst Manhattan dinner memories. Bad service, below average food( and I am a Moroccan food lover) and the prices are just ridiculous. To be avoided.
