We were booked to see a show at the Regal and I went hunting on trip adviser for a good meal. After seeing the reviews I thought we must give this place a go. They got us in on a busy Friday night as our show was at 7.30. From the time we walked in we were welcomed with open arms by Adel who was our main waitress. A wealth of knowledge on the menue and just a delightfull lady. As we were the first in service was spot on but from what we saw later it didn't change for the other guest.
The entree was just yummie We had Turkish bread with the two dips, I have never had bread that good. One dip was hummus and the other cauliflower and I hate cauliflower but this is home made and was so good.

Mains I had the twice cooked duck, just so good, my wife had the fish of the day, barramundi and said it just melted in her mouth. So all up a great night had. We are looking forward to getting back as we didn't get to try the dessert due to getting to the show. Good excuse to go back. You must give it a go but be sure to book in early. It's not in the Heart of Subiaco but closer enough as a short walk. Enjoy.

We regularly go out to a new restaurant each month and finding somewhere to surprise and delight is the best part. We arrived very hungry so it was good to have the taster plate to start as there was a bit of a lag between courses. We filled the time chatting and though the restaurant was busy and full, the waitstaff were very friendly and the food was definitely worth the wait. After we shared a tasting plate for three, we had two tagines (vegetable and the seafood one), and with the serve of fried cauliflower (really excellent), we found the amount just right for two girls and one bloke, all of us being happy eaters. It is a great thing to eat something delicious and we really loved how subtle and beautifully melded were the flavours! For us, that was a real highlight. We shared the dessert plate for two between three, topped off with shots of coffee and rolled our way across the street back to the car, replete, contented and happy to have experienced Meeka!

A 2nd visit in 2 weeks gave a real test on what is on offer. The first visit saw 3 of us having the twice cooked duck....beautiful taste but a little salty, however the fish was excellent. It was a bring you own drinks night so we did not see the wine list, however the meals were 9/10. The second visit was disappointing. Service was slow, the wine list very expensive, and the 3 targines average. For Moroccan style they lacked the subtle flavours of the genre. I had a rare steak...it came out medium. We're we're all disappointed as we had taken new friends there've following our previous visit. I don't know why diners put up with these wine prices...it is rediculous! All in all 2 completely different experiences but we definitely will not be back unless it is a BYO night.

If you want a great dining experience and your palate filled with a suberb array of flavours and spices, with a great wine list accompanied by something severly lacking here in the West then get yourself to Meeka. Thanks to Scott of Menu Mag for the great recommendation!

We have been to Meeka on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed the service and the food. It can be a bit noisy because of the floor and the lack of tablecloths but the food is superb. Having travelled to Morocco we can compare the food and it is a fusion of authentic Moroccan with a contempory twist! What a shining beacon in the restaurant wasteland in Perth.
