We experienced great service and had really enjoyable food on a cold Canberra night. What a great find!

The place was warm and inviting on a cold Canberra night. The food was just 'good' for me, until the lamb pizza arrived. Fantastic dish, absolutely loved it. Children's pizza is very generous in size, if a little uncreative (cheese pizza) and the kids liked it so it is a good family restaurant too.

After recently visiting the Mecca Bah at Broadbeach on the Gold Coast I had fair expectations that the Canberra franchise would also deliver the same top notch experience (broadbeach had been absolutely amazing). However it was not the case in Canberra. The big fail was the food. It was not anywhere near the quality we had enjoyed so much at Broadbeach. The tangines we ordered all lacked flavour and were cooked to death. One of our entrees also appeared to be missing most of the listed ingredients. The kebab style chicken stick was dry and lacked seasoning.
We attended on a Saturday night and it appeared to be kids night. The staff were very nice, but unfortunately I will not be back.

The server did not know the menu was unable to adequately answer our questions. The lamb was a bit overcooked, the rice cold, and the diced tomato flooded the mains plate with acidic juice. None of the dishes demonstrated the aromas and tastes one expects with middle eastern dishes

For food with a difference I highly recommend the Mecca Bah in Manuka, ACT. Great decor, great service and divine tagines. I've been several times and have never been disappointed. They have a good selection of imported beers and wines, but the food is the real draw-card. Based on North African flavours, you can choose from tagines, turkish pizzas, seafood, or lamb hung on a rack at your table ready to be sliced onto your plate. Service was always attentive and don't forget to give the fresh turkish delights a try.
