Great little spot in Soho. The menu has an English section for those who are linguistically challenged. The host is very friendly and the background music, divine. We cook a lot of Moroccan food at home so we were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed the food. Their beef tagine blew ours out of the water! Lovely portion size,... More

Very nice small place. The hummus is very good. We had lamb casserole and chicken couscous. The flavours were very good. A little too much food. And the wine is expensive.

We went on a Monday night. Awesome and attentive service from the owner. We had ideas about what we wanted to eat, but weren't sure how we should order for 5 people. The owner was lovely. He created a fantastic full meal for us, from hummus appetizer to desert. It was a really delightful experience. Great food and the restaurant... More

Went for lunch (large meal of the day). It is a small place with 4-5 tables and we had made a reservation. The decor and ambiance are very nice. Our group of 4 was able to share and taste a range of dishes which went very well together - pepper or pimento salad and a tomato salad together with hummus... More

We enjoyed a really tasty dinner last night at this small and cosy restaurant. Found it this time not via Tripadvisor but by accident: our hotel was near by and we walked by one evening. We were happy to find out that this restaurant is in among the 30 best restaurants in Malaga. The hummus was one of the best... More

Picked this restaurant based upon Trip Advisor recommendations and was not disappointed. In fact it was one of the best restaurant experiences we have had this time round in Spain.

I have waited ten years to equal the best Tagine ever (Millau,France), and last week I had it at Al Yamal. A really nice atmosphere. I think I have said enough. Sublime.

It's a very bijou but characterful restaurant. Dishes are cooked individualy to order; we had some flat bread and hummus U for starters and 2 wonderful couscous tagines between 7 of us. The flavours were wonderful; mildly spiced and fruity the restaurant owner couldn't do enough for us, bringing sharing plates and an iced herb liquor to finish with along... More
