“Amazing couscous, BYO wine, and lambtastic!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Little restaurant in the Montreal plateau, amazing lamb (seriously have some lamb, it's a tender shank!), the couscous and the vegetables w broth are really good, but the brik is OK only. You bring your own wine, you eat some good Algerian food and you have some laughs with friends.

“worst food worst service waste of time”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

If u like salty food and rude service u will be at home in this filthy place. This is not Algerian food at it's best but it's worst. The proprietor is your waiter ..and incapable of serving people properly. Did I mention they-use canned green beans? A huge disappointment. It's salty, pricy, and a waste of time and money. There are no algerians eating here either...so that should be a big clue!

“Don't let tawdry decor stop you enjoying a great meal”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

This restaurant has been in business, presumably on the same site, for 30 years or more and the interior is more than showing its age. The fastidious will not be too pleased with the carpet, for instance! However, they really know how to make good plain cous-cous and the menu offers very good value for money as well. We had rabbit and lamb dishes and they were both succulent. Other traditional Berber dishes are also offered. Take your own wine for a hearty meal and an inexpensive night out.
