We came across this restaurant just walking down the street. It was busy which is always a good sign. It had a very homely cheerful atmosphere. Fresh tasty delicious food with amazing smells. Prices extremely reasonable. We had a main and a desert each costing us just $28 each - we were so full after that. Very friendly prompt service.... More

Learned so much about Moroccan cuisine and then had a banquet at the end of each evening . He is passionate about supporting Canterbury and was so loyal despite losing so much himself... More

When I came upon this restaurant in a little Addington mall, I suspected I had discovered a gem. I wasn't disappointed. The owner/manager was welcoming, the service was friendly and efficient, and the food was delicious and evidently prepared with care from good quality ingredients. I was too full after a delicious bocadillo and barley salad to eat a dessert,... More

3 of us shared a Casablanca platter, which was a chef's choice variety of tapas ($20nz each), plenty of food! And delicious. The menu was so tantalizing it was hard to decide, so the platter was for us. We also bought some of the premade salads from the case for lunch the next day.

We happened upon this place near where we were saying and we were glad we did. The food was wonderful. Great flavor! The staff were friendly and explained items on the menu to us. Didn't break the bank either! Had wonderful looking desserts but we were too full.

Something different from the usual. Moroccan choices in a low key atmosphere. Formica tables, nothing flash, but clean and good value for money. Parking at the door in the small Addington Mall, off Lincoln Road, in Christchurch city, Just turn up really casual, shorts, jeans, Able to choose what you want from the enclosed glass cabinet.

By far the best Moroccan I've had in both NZ and Australia. This place really provides for a great traditional experience. Food was fresh, meats were tender and the tea to end it all off was superb!
