Lovely location with heaps of glass walls so that you can enjoy the surrounds. Proprietor is loud, making a big effort and occasionally inappropriate. But at least he's trying to be friendly.

Ben (the owner) ensures that you have a great dining experience, by checking in on your tables, bussing, serving food (so that you get it immediately when it comes up in the window), etc.. He assists all his staff, and just makes sure that whatever needs to happen does. The place is beautiful, authentic décor, with retail options as well.... More

This is a great place to have breakfast if you wish to sit outside and watch the passing parade. Legal eagles struggling under mountains of paper, prison guards and harried witnesses can all be seen hurrying past on their way to the law courts if you sit long enough. Apart from that, the friendly Moroccan owner serves his delicious food... More

We waited a good 15mins for a waiter to come over & take our order. Eventually I went to the cashier & asked how can we place our order? The owner asked me to... More

Have been many times and always enjoyed the food there as distinctive Moroccan. Ben also makes a good coffee, it was a regular coffee stop when working near by.

a great Moroccan cafe, sadly only open for breakfast and lunch. Conveniently located a short walk from Roma Street Transit Centre, and just past the law courts. We have been twice in a month, and ordered the kebab wrap with chips, trio of dips, and garden salad. Looking forward to trying other menu items. Beautiful wall posters with Moroccan scenes,...

Went to Ben's twice with colleagues and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their shared platter. One of the lady had their turkish delight and recon it was the best turkish delight she had ever had.
