“A small bit of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

After arriving hot and tired we decided to try this. A Moroccan restaurant that does excellent mezzo, great tanginess and really at reasonable prices for the quality. On the first night it was mezzo with beef and prune tagine, with roasted vegetables and chicken kebabs and it was heaven. An excellent bottle of wine too - overall for two the prices was about 600 RMB and given the service and quality it was stunning. The other time was as good too

“Authentic, quiet, relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Sofitel’s Casablanca Moroccan Restaurant offers an oasis of quiet, tranquility, and order that is a welcome respite from the hubbub while of Xian’s busy streets. We sampled the cold mezze as a good option to try a few favorites such as hummus, tabouleh, babaganoush, and olives, all of which were quite up to Middle East standards (lived there 6 years) although the bread consisted of pancake size pita bread which while warmed was dry and lackluster. My wife’s lamb kebabs were deliciously spiced and tender; ditto for my lamb with prunes, which also came with couscous to soak up the sauces. Service was excellent and our water glasses never empty – a great pleasure following a hot day of touring. Their wine menu offers something for everyone and is moderately priced.

“We enjoyed our dinner very much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Other than the big hotel restaurant, Azur, we had a hard time finding great food in Xi'an. This was my favorite meal in this city. We ordered a selection and tried everything and it was all good! Mostly local Chinese food in Xi'an or typical western hotel food, which was fine, but gets old quickly.

“Very poor value for money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Though I am aware this restaurant is within a major 'quality' hotel, that should not necessarily mean being ripped off with tiny portions of food at exhorbitant prices. I spent 330RMB on a very small 'large' tagine, a small but expensive 'hummus' appetiser (hummus is hardly a costly food, no reason for it to cost 80RMB). Having complained to the head waiter that Moroccan food is about large portions, eating until you're painfully full and more couscous than you can shake a hookah at, he did apologise, thus it gets 2stars rather than 1. But never again.
