On our recent visit to Portland we re-visited this wonderful restaurant. Incredible Food, Incredible staff, Incredible atmosphere. Quality of the food served at Dar Essalam is far above what is normally encountered even in very high end restaurants. Our dinner flowed out of the kitchen at a leisurely pace allowing us adequate time to enjoy the 3 wonderful side dishes... More

In a town with virtually no restaurants offering unique or innovative cuisine, Dar Essalam is a special place. On a recent visit, we particularly enjoyed the Mediterranean Dinner Salad and Bakola, along with the tasty appetizers that accompanied both dishes--finding everything we ate well-seasoned and attractively presented..

We all agreed this was a fabulous choice for an exotic dinner enroute from the Puget Sound towards Eugene. Rich exotic interior manned by friendly servers from entry to departure. The kids enjoyed the Sultan kabobs dinner and me and the hub had Tagine oxtail with onions and golden raisins on couscous, and Tagine lamb shank with spicy artichoke and... More

Wow! Were we ever impressed by the food, service, and decor of this small, family-run restaurant. It has many wonderful menu choices. The entrees come with appetizer, soup, sides, pita, and rice or couscous. Also, don't miss the mint tea - hot or cold. To get there from I-5, get off at the Wilsonville exit. Turn right just before the... More

We were late for our reservation because traffic held us up, but we were welcomed and assured that it was OK. This set the tone for a really great visit. Service was warm and timely. We were made to feel like family as small special requests were met with a smile. The food? We could not have asked for better.... More

Family run establishment has great service and ambiance. The food is fantastic regardless of what you choose off the varied menu. Don't miss the tea, they don't serve alcohol but even if they did you would want to go for the tea.

Oh my....where to start....We have been enjoying "Dar E" as our friends call Dar Essalam, since they opened. Superb, consistent, and deliciously fresh Moroccan dining! The servers are still the same over the years...and of course, recognize us as "regulars"....This restaurant is in a little strip building tucked out of the way near Wilsonville's Thriftway. So worth checking it out... More

I was joined by a couple so we had a few different items and each was very good...plus the basic were good, great lentil soup. The Olive plate ordered was generous and interesting as a starter, the humus and pita was tasty. And the people and service was very good while not intrusive.

I have eaten twice at Dar Essalam and left both times happy. I had the bastilla, shrimp and chicken kabobs, saffron rice, hummus and salad. My friend said that the lamb and beef kabobs were delicious as well. The atmosphere was really nice, and the service was outstanding. Can't wait to return to try other dishes!
