“So much fun with friends!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Super fun Belly Dancing, awesome food, terrific customer service, received utensils without asking. Everyone was having so much fun! How can you not when you get to lounge on soft cushions while eating, drinking, and enjoying the company of new friends. The area is a normal industrial, airport area. Parking was easy. The food is served family style, and there is no problem making simple changes to any of the 6-7 six course dinner choices. The staff was attentive and friendly. Once you walk through the large red wooden doors into Menara, you are in a whole new world..."Morrocan style". Full bar, Morrocan wine, mint tea, sangria what a great experience!

Try this Moroccan restaurant where you eat with your own hands! Try dishes with exotic spices and watch a belly dancing performance.

“Missing Moroccan ingredients”
Reviewed January 11, 2009

We went to Menara last evening for dinner and the bellydancing show. Having traveled to Morocco, I am not sure that anything was particularly Moroccan about this restaurant other than the attempt at the cuisine. We were assured that the chef was Moroccan though the servers / owners were not. We found the food OK - the chicken was good but the lamb was greasy. The one bellydancer was entertaining and we enjoyed the hot mint tea. Where was the tangine? Where was the traditional Moroccan dessert (dried out baklava doesn't count)? Where were the mint leaves in the tea? All in all, we enjoyed ourselves, but would not go back.
