I found an advertisement for the Casbah in a travel guide, so my husband and I decided that one night on vacation we were going to try this place out. We were the first customers to arrive on a weekday evening and were seated promptly. The ceiling and walls are covered with velvet drapes and the seats at the tables are low. The waitress took our order within a very few short minutes. I had already looked at the menu online and we had decided what we wanted to try before we got there. We ordered and the waitress brought the rose water out for us to wash our hands in. She also asked if we wanted silverware, which we didn't because we wanted to have the whole Moroccan experience. I got the chicken with carmelized apricots and my husband got the beef dish. A blond belly dancer came out and performed for the few minutes it took for our food to arrive. She was obviously a college student making her way through school but she knew her belly dancing! They brought the dishes out with rice (that was more like a risotto) and another plate with green beans, carrots and a sweet cornbread on it. We tried them all and ate everything with our fingers. The food was really good. Eating without silverware is really not as messy as you think, or maybe we are just not messy eaters. The belly dancer came out for a second time, we washed our hands in the rosewater again and then we left to go to Leopold's Ice Cream which is just up the street. We'll eat here again on another visit because we really enjoyed it.

We were a bit surprised as to how great the food was here. The restaurant needs to do more to keep the front well lit. We thought it was closed. However, we pushed the door open and went it. What ambiance. And the belly dancer was a treat. First time eating Moroccon food and the young kid there was quite helpful explaining the food and customs. A+++++++ overall!

My friend and I took our 3 year daughters here for dinner one night, and we all had a blast! Sure, it's not the most kid friendly place nor is it cheap by any means (so take your kids if they are good, adventerous eaters - which ours are), but we were placed away from the main diners, but still able to see the belly-dancer. What a fun atmosphere and definitely different than the boring, southern-fare places that litter downtown. The food is tasty too!

Couldn't taste the saffron in the mushy rice, bland tasting meet. Over an hour long wait for food. Too bad because the waiters and dancers are super friendly. What's going on in the kitchen? Plus all the fabric on walls and ceiling appear dirty.

If you want a TRUE Moroccan eating experience, definitely go to the Casbah on Broughton Street. The wait staff comes with a silver pitcher and tray to wash your hands and give you a warm towel to dry your hands. The BIG choice is, "do you want to eat true Moroccan style with your hands OR with silverware. We, along with the 12 girl scouts who were there to celebrate the Anniversary of the Girl Scouts, ALL chose to eat with our hands. The food was out of this world for taste and authenticity. The belly dancer was good and got ALL us girls up to show us we too could belly dance!! After our meal, we were again accorded the silver tray and pitcher washing of the hands...and then rose water drizzled over our hands.
