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"

Went here on a Friday and restaurant was quiet but soon filled up and people were turned away. Food was very tasty, served promptly and hot. It is many years since we have been to Morocco but this place and the bazaar downstairs brought plenty of memories back.

“first class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Seated promptly. The inside of the Restaurant was a little gloomy, but that added to the feel of the place.
The waitress was delightful and had an efficient air about her.
The food we ordered was served quickly and was delicious. We had starters and mains but not a pudding.
Can honestly say the trip to the toilets was a worthwhile experience in itself!! Not wanting to spoil the surprise, the trip encompasses the Bazaar shop….

“Bland with average service...........”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

It was a random choice as Tilleys was full at lunchtime, popped in to this worryingly almost empty restaurant but hunger made the choice - some Morrocan why not?..... On arrival we were met by a young lady whose tone was a little aggressive "have you booked?" I viewed the restaurant and asked for a table for two, the young lady wished to place us beside the only other couple in the restaurant in the far corner, I requested that we sit (further apart especially as their was no need) close to the window, we were uncomfortably accepted in our wish. A lunch deal of two courses for 10.95 seemed appropriate and read as good value. We both wanted the 'mixed mezze' as starter so I sacrificed mine for another choice, the lalla zhour. The mezze was very very good, my falafal was light and tasty, but did wonder why my Morrocan house salad garnish was just iceberg lettuce with red onion?.....overall it was a four star starter, after our empty water glasses were requested to be re-filled our mains arrived, a chicken tangine - large 1/4 of chicken in a yellow watery I would say çhicken stock'' it was bland at best and in no way represented a 'tangine' prepared dish, I would guess it was placed in their for service, my Morrocan meatballs were tough and poorly made lacking again any of the Morrocan essence in a tomato sauce, so far as to say a certain company boasting "just like mamma used to make" would be on a par with the quality of sauce, rice only warm and again another round of JS basics pitta bread to accompany the dish. Decoratively the place is ok, the young lady serving was trying her best but needs some customer service training and hopefully that training will not come from the owner who I am sure is nice but portrays a non friendly arrogance in mannerisms and the food well, different it is, authentic it is not and therefore its an average three stars in a competitive Bath market..........

“Vegan-Friendly Oh-So-Filling Moroccan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Cafe Du Globe offers several vegan options which are worth having at least once. The harira is fantastic, as are the vegetarian couscous dishes. The restaurant also veganized cold mezze platters for us. They, too, were fantastic. We Cafe du Globe so much we ate there twice in four days.

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

We had the ribs platter to share and also a mushroom starter. I didn't like the mushroom, it had a mushy texture. the ribs on the other hand was pretty good. It was so big that even with the three of us sharing we still couldn't finish it.
