“The craziest barbecue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Fight your way through the snakes, monkeys and dancing transvestites to take y our place at any number of stalls offering everything from chicken kebabs to goats' heads. Our children were thrilled and amazed by the experience, and the sheer sight of the smoke and light rising in the darkness truly make this hell's kitchen an absolute must. Certainly the food is variable, but the experience is absolutely top and very, very cheap. Just go.

“Try Once!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Well, we tried once and survived. Food is of poor qaulity very bland. The kebabs are tiny pieces of meat, mainly fat or gristle. I think most food is pre-cooked then warmed up. Our kebabs arrived with a minute or so from ordering.
Watch out for the bread and dip they give you when you sit down. The charge 5 Dirhams a person for this but dont tell you!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

The stalls in the main square were great. We loved the way they are so well set up and the attention to detail. Eating in the square a few nights was a great experience too, and not to be missed.

“Number 31!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

It came recommended to us by a local, it was also the busiest place there, which is always a good sign, and not another foreigner in sight! Get the sausages and the fish if you want a variety and don't forget the "Moroccan Whiskey!"

“Ate here 3 times...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We didn't have anything here we didn't like. It was a buzzing atmosphere and reasonable in price. We did try to go to stall 14 two times. The first time they were a no show, and the second time, it was so crowded there that people were waiting behind the diners for a place to sit and eat. That is a good sign.
