We went there on a discount coupon but we are definitely going back! The food was great but the feature that will make us go back is the service.

The owner is friendly but the food is very bad. We ordered a vegetarian couscous but tasted of meat. All the dishes has the same sauces. Our "neighbours" ordered meat and had the same sauce of our couscous. I went in Morocco different times but I never had a so bad couscous.

There are a lot of morrocan restaurants in Antwerp, and they all serve good food. What makes this place special is the extremely warm and welcoming owner. Even though we visited with a 2for1 discount voucher, we got very good service and enjoyed the kindness of the owner. It is clear that he takes his buisiness very seriously and wants... More

The food was good, a little on the expensive side. 1L bottle of water was 9€ which is more expensive than the starter we got.

Very friendly welcome and service from the owner. We wanted to have Libanees food and this restaurant provides enough Arabic dishes to fulfil your desires. Great value!

One of the best restaurants, i've been to in years! Everything was perfect... The food was delicious and fresh. All the people around us seemed to have a good time and were enjoying the atmosphere as well as the food. What i personally appreciated was that the owner takes care of every costumer and gives that extra touch of kindness... More
