Going to Cous Cous is a dining experience for an entire evening that is better shared with a group. Seating is at low tables with padded cushions. The atmosphere includes a belly dancer and music. If a "feast" is ordered, it is served family style...and includes a tomato based bean soup, a trio of brightly flavored salads, entree(s), fruit dessert with a baklava "cigar", and mint tea decorously poured. The waiter was very helpful in explaining the menu items and assisting someone with food allergies by providing alternates. I was able to substitute a different entree in the petite feast. A variety of more exotic spices make tasting the food an adventure with items varying from scale of 3 to 5. The overall experience is greater than the sum of it's parts!More

This is a small restaurant and reservations are necessary since there's usually 2 seating per evening, but the food is fantastic and certainly worth trying. It is family style and you get a lot to eat, the seating is unique to showcase the Moroccan culture...and additionally there is belly dancing entertainment on the weekends.More

Cous Cous is without reservation of my favorite and most highly recommended of restaurants. The food is impeccable, the service is extremely friendly, and the atmosphere is totally inviting. My highest recommendations are the Vegan Moussaka (you do not have to be vegetarian to love...it! It is incredibly tasty and satisfying -- and healthy) as well as the Chicken Shish-Kebob (extremely flavorful -- probably the best I've ever had.). I also recommend the Tzaziki and salads as compliments to the meal. The Harrira (chickpea and lentil spiced tomato-based soup) is also a personal (and family) favorite, as well as any of the appetizers. I've not yet tried but have heard that the Lemon Chicken as well as the salmon dish (Samak Tajin) are delicious. I recommend it as a solo venture, for a date, or with friends (I would even go to Cous Cous for business or to host a private party.) Amazing, amazing, experience.More

This was our first time having Moroccan food so I can not speak on the authenticity of the food here. We had the royal feast and the highlights throughout the courses were the meats. The service was attentive. Our server explained each dish that came...out and also provided an alternative for the red meat dishes for me since I do not eat red meat. The absolute highlight for both of us was the lemon chicken. It was fall-off-the-bone tender and flavorful. As stated in other reviews, the ventilation is great. We do not smoke hookah but was not bothered by the hookah smoke from all of the other tables. The belly dancer was a nice touch. Plan a lot of time for your meal if you get the feast. We were there for about 2.5 hours.More

Dined here last night with a friend. I was a little nervous at first, I have never really had that type of food before. We did the 10 course feast for $22. Course one was Harassa soup which tasted really good. Normally I dont care...for beans or chickpeas, even though those ingredients were in the soup they still tasted so good. Second Course was 3 types of salads, eggplant patte (not my favorite), cucumber salad (the best one), and a cold carrot salad (also very good). The salads came with a basket of fresh hot pita bread. I used the cucumber and carrots to almost make a Moroccan brushetta of sorts. Course 3 was chicken bastilla. That was pulled chicken, souffled eggs in a sweet and flakey puff pastry with powdered sugar on top. SOO GOOD! Course 4 was honey roasted chicken,my favorite dish of the night. The chicken was so moist and fall off the bone finger licking good. Course 5 was the lamb, which was served more like a sausage, wasn't a fan. To me it tasted like McDonalds hamburger meet. Course 6 and 7 was a beef dish that was in this fantastic broth and so good and vegtable cous cous. Not a fan of cous cous but the veggies that I dug out were tender and yummy. Course 8 was mint tea, very minty. Course 9 Moroccan fruit salad and course 10 lady finger baklava! SO GOOD! The place was empty which I enjoyed. Very nice dim lighting, would recommend this as a fun dinner date place. I will be back!More

My new girlfriend (at the time) and I had been looking forward to patronizing Cous Cous. When we arrived, we discovered they'd booked us for the next night (they're mistake). On top of that, they had no availability to fit us in. It was rainy...and I was pretty upset. After expressing my displeasure, we walked back to the car. I then realized I was not ready to let it go. My girlfriend stayed in the car, I walked back in and asked to speak with the manager. After reiterating my displeasure, he stated the two large parties they were expecting were not arriving for about an hour, if we wanted to stay. I went back to the car, discussed with my girlfriend and we decided to take him up on his offer. The food was excellent! The experience was lovely. When we asked for the check, we were told there was no charge. We left a HUGE tip. Haven't been back since. However, we will.More

Came here with a group of 15 friends. The room is cozy and dimly lit. I'm guessing about 50 people could enjoy the low cushioned couches and tables suited for groups of 3 to 6. It was a Friday evening so we all went for...the 10 course Royal Feast (@$27 per person).The very attentive waiter offered us drops of rosewater to refresh our hands before we got on with the feast. Started with the harrira soup, a thick and nicely seasoned tomato base with chickpeas....yummy. Next the salad sampler. Three cold salads served with a thin flat bread. Chicken Bastilla was the third course. I found this a bit dry....phyllo always seems a bit dry to me. Moroccan chicken with olives and lemons made me for get about the previous course...fall off the bone tender and delicious! The music volume increases! The belly dancer appears! This woman is the perfect combination of dancer and belly! I forget about the chicken. Now on to the beef kabob and stewed lamb.The meats were served with vegetables and cous cous. The 6 course Petite Feast (@ $22 pp) offers your choice of tajin (chicken,lamb,etc.). The kabob,lamb,veg and cous cous stands in for the tajin in the Royal Feast menu. A Moroccan fruit salad was served. Apples,grapes, nothing exotic except for the addition of rose water to the fruits. Small glasses of mint tea (poured from a 3 foot height from pot to tiny glass) completes the meal. Conversation and packing our leftovers into take out boxes follows. Just as we are about to depart.....the belly dancer takes the floor once again! Several tables were partaking of the hookah during the course of the evening. Another review site mentioned how effective the ventilation system is at this restaurant. True. I couldn't smell any smoke and was not bothered at all by it. If I didn't have allergies I might try it as I observed a most content gentleman relaxing after his hookah session. I honestly expected him to turn into a giant caterpillar at any moment. I would return here as overall experience was enjoyable. I recommend the feast. Just my preference. I like tasting, tapas, dim sum type meals rather than a big plate of one thing. I wish they would include the appetizer sampler (hummus,grape leaves,feta,falafel) as part of the feast. BYOB Plenty of parking in strip mall Asian market in the same strip....interesting stop before dinnerMore

My husband and I was looking for a place to smoke cigars. The local place near us closed at 8pm. Another place we frequent closed down. So I looked up hookah bar when I had no luck with the cigar lounges. I'm glad I did...because I found Cous Cous. We had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was great. It is small and intimate atmosphere. It is a BYOB with a $5 cover charge per person for the bottle. The hookah and food price was reasonable. The food was really good. But the best part was the customer service. Our server was fantastic!! His name was "Zion", not sure if I'm spelling it correctly. I mean he was great. Very attentive and made us feel at home. They have a belly dancer and DJ on Fridays and Saturdays. This is a great place for girls or guys night out, birthday party, couples night, small office party, and just hanging out. This place is a real gem. I'm already planning to go back with friends! Again if you like morrocan food and hookah, this is a place you have to check out!More

My husband and I had an early dinner here tonight. As it is a Saturday they only serve their 10 course dinner (not as much food as it sounds.) The cost was $27 a person. Very reasonable. At 7:30 a belly dancer provides entertainment. There...was no one smoking a hooka when we were there. The service was good and the food was delightful. It is an hour ride for us, we will return.More
