“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Very nice and friendly place with the couple of owners: Ahmed and Anna cooking and serving delicious food: couscous and tajin not to miss! The Algerian green tea is just fantastic and I guess I become addicted to it. The staff turnover I believe is high though so some mistakes from them can happen but they do try hard!

“Great food, comfortable restaurant, friendly service.”

Short menu but all foods are perfect. I tried all the main courses in that restaurant. It is not easy to decide on a favorite one.
You should order mint tea..

“Great food, poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

The food here is good, although a bit over priced. Had a really weird service experience though where they charged us for an extra glass of wine but rather than correct it and be polite about it (we were there with a large group and were spending a lot of money, so this should not have been a big deal to them even if they thought they were right), they aggressively brought over the waitress who claimed to have brought the additional glass and proceeded to berate us about how we most certainly had that extra glass. We were to happy to pay for it, but they have lost our future business.

“Fab food and staff definitely worth a visit 😎👍”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Really glad we sought this restaurant out. The food was great ( my wife loves North African style and really rated it).

The price is not expensive unless you compare to street vendors.

There is a nice atmosphere with good decor and surroundings . The staff including chef and wife/ manager were very helpful and pleasant.

We shared a cous cous with chicken and a beef tagine, it was plentiful and flavoursome. We had a selection of deserts - the best since we arrived in Vietnam two weeks ago.

Near many of the hotels in district 1 so a short walk or cheap taxi.

Best wishes to team for continued success. David

Me and my wife want to this restaurant after reading some good review, and we did not disappointed at all, the food was excellent, the service was very good, and the place is very nice. Also the price was a little bit expensive.
