“Nice place, music too loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Great atmosphere with an Arabic twist. Nice decor too but hostess might need a little bit of training, servers were excellent and charming
Good from the kitchen was excellent, there is a lamb dish which comes highly recommended. Remember to send compliments to the chef

There was a little bit of drama with one of the hosts and a server, and I honestly thought he had to calm down and deal with it privately not infront of the guests

Selection of songs from the dj was fun but they really need to tone down the volume so people can hear eachother

Reasonable priced and frequented by the locals

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We enjoyed a fantastic lunch at this beautifully decorated restaurant. The service was excellent from start to finish. We shared a pastille, lamb tagine and couscous, and came away feeling full and satisfied. They also make their own pastries, which are nice to look at and even better to eat.

“Delicious Moroccan Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Had dinner here with friends. Excellent service from waiters, food was very good. We went for the set menu which had lots of variety and portions were too big! On the menu are your staple moroccan dishes such as Harrira, Tajeen, Basteela and many others which we tried for the first time. Definitely worth a visit and will be going back there again.
