Daughter wanted something exotic for dinner, so she checked TripAdvisor and found our destination. It was a great choice! We were greeted by a warm and smiling host. As we discovered, the host also doubles as "the chef AND the owner. Lahcen Abaichi opened his dream eight years ago and his heart-felt efforts do not let you down. Both my... More

Great hospitality by the chef/owner. Amazing food. Any questions about the menu or need suggestions he is delighted to help and delightful. No alcohol if that is an issue.

Looking something less "run-the-mill" I found this place on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. As a European I often miss the different ingredients and styles used in European cuisine but it is often difficult to find truly authentic places. This is definitely authentic and is of a very high standard. I started with Morroccan Harrira which is a traditional saffron... More

The owner was very friendly, and couldn't have been more helpful with menu suggestions. as there were a lot of choices on the menu. We ordered the Marakesh kefta tagine and lamb royal. Both dishes were excellent comfort food meals. The lamb was very tender, in a bed... More

Its not especially fancy but the menu has a good variety for the adventurous as well as some standard stuff. Home cooked, authentic food with reasonable prices. The waiter was very nice, but was pretty busy... More

This restaurant is a real gem in Norwood when it comes to Mediterranean food. The host is very friendly and gives a real good explanation of the menu items - especially the authentic dishes. We ordered the soup and calamari for appetizers - one of the best tangy calamari I had in some time. For the main course I ordered... More

Eat in or take out, a small operation doing it all. Salads, sandwhiches, couscous , espresso and desserts. If your in the mood for a lamb sandwhich this is the place!
