I'll admit to being a little worried about this place when we walked in - the inside could use a fresh coat of paint and some updating - but the service and meal did not disappoint. We went for the full Moroccan meal with several appetizers, different entrees and ending with dessert and tea. Everything we were served was delicious... More

Very attentive service our water and tea was never empty. Beautiful hand washing and dance show. Food was fine but the entire experience together will make you come back.

We ate at a Moroccan restaurant in San Francisco 25 years ago, and want to recreate the experience. You feel like you are entering a different world as you enter the restaurant, the music, the low tables, and Moroccan architecture are great. The hand washing and towels are truly refreshing. The food was very tasty and well prepared, and the... More

I had a coupon code from Restaurant.com so thought I'd be adventurous and try Moroccan food for the first time. It was right across the street from my hotel so an easy walk. The first thing that struck me when I entered was a strange odor. Perhaps a by-product of the hookah thing? Anyway, it was early so the place... More

Lamb dishes featured here. Lamb shanks were excellent. This would be an interesting place if you are looking for something different. You might even get a belly dance. Very reasonably priced if you order Ala carte.

Second time here, really enjoyed the full dinner with authentic Moroccan spices and seating. Lamb tagine and chicken tagine both prepared in traditional pots and the accomplements were very good. Even a Lebanese wine to go with the meal. Don't miss the belly dancing!

I took my husband here for his birthday dinner. We were early for dinner and seated immediately (it was practically empty for much of the time we were there until a large party came in and sat in the back room). The service was attentive (love the orange blossom scented water to wash your hands in before and after the... More
