“Nestled in between two other places.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We were trying to find this place, and still almost missed it. It is right in a corner between two other places. It only has 2 or three tables, and the only way I noticed it was by a trip advisor sign! We went back for the Kefka Tajine. Very tasty. The flies were driving me nuts, but they were everywhere.

“A real gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Simple but friendly and delicious, this little gem of a restaurant inside the medina is well worth seeking out and especially for the keftha tagine with egg that is delicious and probably the best one I've had in Morocco. The owner will show you his acclaim through reviews and it can appear a little hard sell perhaps, but it is in good humour and when you sit and eat it is easy to see why it get the recommendations. I'd love a Thami's around the corner from here!

“Surprisingly, the best tajine we had in Morocco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

When you're deep in the Fes Medina, it can be hard to pick out the winners from the losers. But Thami's, with its sweet corner location and fresh ingredients, is clearly one of the best options. It was our first meal in Fes, and coincidentally enough, also the best tajine we had our entire two weeks in Morocco.

The view is great, because you're looking out over a series of restaurants with great views down two of the larger passageways in the Medina. The food is delicious, cheap and the service is friendly.

The mint tea is also finger-scorching hot, as it is everywhere else!

“pretty good, considering”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

it's a touristy place, but the locals don't eat out much in Fes, too expensive compared with eating at home, so there are not many places that you can eat with the locals. Thami himself welcomes you, and keeps telling everyone the name of the place so you can write a review. Good food, just a little rich, like most Moroccan food.

“Great place to eat and perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We ate at Thami`s twice during our stay and we loved it. The food is outstanding especially the kefta and the staff are really friendly. It is also a great place to people watch. The price also is very very good.
