Description: Tagine Zhor is an authentic Moroccan restaurant run by the Casablancan Moroccan born owner. He takes pride in his Fez cuisine because it is based on traditional recipes that have been passed down from his loving Fez born grandmother "zhor" to him. It is the only finest Moroccan restaurant in Bath and probably in the whole South West of England. The perfect place to experience real Moroccan food cooked and served in a distinctive and traditional manner together with genuine warm hospitality in absolute beautiful Moroccan surroundings. Most meals begin with the simple selection of hot and cold mezze which might include hommos, Olives and Baba Ghannouj served with flat bread. The Tagine may come next served with Cous Cous, rice or Bread. It is a stew made of lamb, Chicken, Fish, Beef, kofta and Basilla. A single plate of dessert will usually consist of baklawas . They are sweet pastries dripping in honey or dusted in icing sugar marks the end of the meal before fresh mint tea or Arabic coffee are served. Do not forget to take a seat on outdoor terrace and enjoy the Shisha pipe and its flavour of tobacco. Also pay a visit to our gem Bazaar Shop downstairs featuring beautiful and unique handmade Moroccan items "great idea for gifts"

This was our second visit and it was as good as the first visit. Food was delicious and the staff delightful and helpful. My other half had the hot mezzo to start which had a good selection of meat and vegetable mezzos, he then the lamb tagine with prunes and egg and said the meat was very tender and tasty. I had the vegetarian mezze to start, a lovely and varied selection of cold mezzos and then to follow I had the vegetarian cous cous which could have been a little spicier but as i had some harissa with it that gave it a nice kick. We both had fresh mint tea and baklava to finish and the tea and the pastries were both delicious. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Dropped in on a Saturday lunchtime after looking at the queues elsewhere, and having tried it, can't imagine why there weren't queues here, too. Beautifully Moroccan decor and presentation. We had the "set" lunch menu, but even that includes a wide range of choices, well beyond the usual meze and tagine (though in fact we had both). Friendly helpful service, and a nice range of flavours and textures in the food. Can't fault them on a thing, and will definitely be taking friends there next time we're in Bath.

We ate here in the evening, having booked after reading recommendations here. We were not disappointed. The ambience was definitely Moroccan once in through the door. The menu was quite extensive and varied. Perhaps some dishes needed more explanation. Both of us were very happy with our meals and wine, and felt that the bill was reasonable.

I have walked past this cafe/restaurant for years and have to be honest, it has never appealled really, largely because it looks so tired and dated on the outside. However, a friend had eaten there and loved it and the website looked pretty up to date, so I arranged to meet my friend there for lunch.
Ok, sharp intake of breath, it looks nothing like the outside, inside. It has ornate dark wook furniture, lamps everywhere and really looks exotic. We chose to sit in the window and the waitress came to give us menus and take drinks orders. having perused the menu the night before and both being vegetarian, it was easy to choose the cold mezze sharing plate for two.
What arrived looked delicious, beautiful colours and not an inch of plate to be seen and it really was good. Vibrant flavours, different textures and so spicy. I am sure I detected rose water in the beetroot, which really worked. I am a sucker for things in pots and baskets and we had both- the warm sesame bread came in a woven basket, with a lid and we were given two tiny pots of olives and more houmous. I found myself sighing with pleasure over the mild, yet powerful goats cheese and the soft, but crunchy falafels. There was plenty to eat, without feeling you had to politely leave enough for your eating partner to share.
Afterwards we had mint tea, served in individual brass teapots, with embroidered covers and poured at a height by our waitress into Morroccan tea glasses. I peeked inside the teapots and it was jammed full with fresh mint leaves and smelt like a summer garden after a thunderstorm.
Yes, people, ignore the outside, leave your predjudice at the door, stride in and prepare to have a really excellent lunch.

We went here for lunch when our favourite nearby restaurant was full. We are so glad we did. It is quite a quirky place. The building is old and the decor very typically N African. As you wend your way down a narrow staircase to the loos, you find a bazaar of beautiful moroccan artefacts for sale - jewellery, ceramics and leather poufs. The service in the restaurant was efficient and friendly. We both chose from the two course set lunch. Fantastic value at £10.95. We both had the meze to start. A plate of varied humus,cheese and veggie dishes served with warm pitta. Really tasty. To follow I had the couscous and vegetables and my husband had meatballs in tomato sauce. Both dishes were really good. If you know moroccan food, you will love this place. If you don't, give it a go - its really tasty, not more spicy than is comfortable and there are plenty of things you will recognise.
