This Mediterranean/Morrocan breakfast/lunch spot was both highly rated on various websites and personally recommended by a local store clerk as one of the best lunch spots in Northampton Center. My wife's falafel sandwich was very tasty, but my avocado omelette (reportedly, the most popular omelette choice) was served cold...so I can't give the place an "awesome" rating. Prices were average,... More

We liked Mosaic so much on our road trip that on the way back we stopped at Amanouz Cafe, the sister restaurant. We had a dish of lamb on lentils and mashed potatoes, and goat over rice. Delicious! The portions were quite large, though...I wish we had just gotten one main and a few sides to share. The desserts looked... More

I really like this place, even though it can get quite busy. Their falafel on lavash is terrific, but I have also tried the hummus and tabouleh. Their soups look good, as do the shawarma but I have not tried them.

Amanouz is an informal place: you order at the front and food is brought to your table. It's got an amazing variety of vegetarian and meat dishes.

They have a fabulous Moroccan salad that makes a wonderful lunch, fresh lots of protein, lemon juice and oil on top. There Shawarma, which I always get on French bread, is entirely delicious.

We went to Northampton for an overnight stay. Stopped here, at this easy to miss Moroccan cafe. My husband an I split an appetizer, the Vegetable Cheese Burek, (filo, vegetables of the day and cheese). It was delicious! He ordered the Tagine Casablanca, which is chicken, almonds, raisins and olives, all lightly seasoned with cinnamon. He loved this. I ordered... More

We loved this place. Small, easy to miss, but outstanding. From the person at the order counter to the cook--everyone was very friendly and very concerned with preparing great food. A very extensive wine and beer list if you are interested. Entrees were fabulous and creative (I had never thought of a salmon kebab before). Reasonably priced. We'll be back!

This is a bustling local favorite....though small in space, with tables close together, you'll find it big in flavor. If you like Morrocan style cuisine with everything from stews to crepes, then you'll enjoy this informal eatery.

This is a small moroccan restaurant run by Moroccans. It has great north african food - wonderful falafal but also stews, and desserts and, of course, mint tea. Also has excellent breakfasts. If anything the space is a bit small, and the seating is uncomfortable and very tight. The quality of the food and cheerful service makes up for the... More

Always packed, always delicious- this is a must try. When I first moved here five years ago, someone told me this was his favorite restaurant and now I know why. Moroccan themed but also Mediterranean, the food is always made with fresh ingredients. Their stews, chicken tagines, hummus wraps, salads-- just terrific. They sell sodas but also some beer and...
