This place could be so great, the food quality is great the atmosphere and unusual surroundings unique - BUT...the odd elements: The fresh fish doesn't seem to match the cooking style (Far East) ie: Sardines, Tuna..? and all ''baby'' size? BUT the prawns are delicious and divine.
75% of our food arrived very cold, which is such a disappointment - for example - they serve you rice - wait ten minutes - then bring your ordered dish, Luke warm...it ruined it for us!
Our calamari arrived cold also - it wasn't overly busy, so we failed to ascertain why - Also ordered drinks and they took over 20 minutes and we asked twice - again, not busy?? If we had paid full price I would have been very angry. I did ask the Manager why it was all so cold - she just said sorry...would I go back? No because I hate the stress of complaining and detestable luke warm/cold food - no reason at all. Shame.

I am a seafood lover and everywhere I go I try this food but no taste like the one in this restaurant!
The best taste and choice in ingredients I ever had.....the ambiance and the design of the restaurant is very nice with floor made of water tank.

Totally recommend it!

We went for the seafood market. Let me warn you in advance that unless you have starved yourself for a week you will not be able to eat everything.
My husband and I had mussels, tiger prawns, crab and calamari to start with as we did not realise that we also had soup as well the starter defeated me. Everything was cooked to perfection and the Tom Yam soup was lovely and spicy.
My husband battled on to the main course of hamour and tuna he normally avoids hamour but on the advise of our waitress Judy he was persuaded to try it. It was totally delicious and the hubbie cleared the plate along with fabulous fresh veggies which still had a crunch.
We will be back this time I will fast for the required week

Excellent food, cooked to your choice, especially the Teppenyaki chef - he is amazing! For the 119 dirhams (discounted price, actual is 149dhs), the quantity and quality is unmatched. I am a regular here and our family favorites are the jumbo shrimps cooked in various styles; the baked mussels are an absolute must. You can have crab and fish in many styles and any thinkable and imaginable sauce - the chef will make it if he understands your request ;) the drinks and soups are included too! I love this joint...
