Babouch has apparently been a San Pedro fixture for nearly 40 years, and for that endurance record alone it deserves some credit, located as it is up near the Harbor Freeway end of unappealing and busy Gaffey Street. The plain white cement façade has just a heavy, studded, wooden door, which opens into an ornately exotic faux-tent interior, decked out... More

My son and I went to Babouch... almost by accident. We were driving nearby, thought we'd try something new. What a surprise, beautiful restaurant, warm and typical decor, very comfortable seating and really good food. The honey chicken tagine and Bastilla were truly wonderful. Wow. Great service. The belly dancer and card reader aren't really my thing, though my teenage... More

This was a very fun evening; the food was different and interesting, the ambiance was charming and the entertainment was delightful. We made reservations, but when we walked in we saw there was very little need; the place was empty. We were the only ones there, and we had the corner to ourselves. We sat on benches and cushions with... More

Well this was an interesting experience. We went on a Sunday night and many tables were already filled. We arrived at 6:30PM and the owner(?) came over to take our drink orders and to explain specials, but just as he was about to take our orders, the dancing music came on and the ordering was suspended until the belly dancer...

I visited this restaurant with my friend and families. I had to park my car roadside as the restaurant parking was full (there may be 8 parking spaces). Inside, the ambiance was great. It will feel like you are in a restaurant at Morocco itself. Server were quick to attend us and they were very courteous. They explained the traditional... More

Excellent food and service. I thought I needed a spoon for the soup, but I didn't! The grilled eggplant was perfect. My favorite appetizer is the beef cigar!!! We will be back!

I went to this restaurant for a birthday party and it did not disappoint. First of all, the servers are so friendly and accommodating and the decor is wonderful. Then the menu is just so fantastic; everything tasted so good you can't go wrong. First they brought our appetizer, the mezza platter. Hummus and sausages. Very good. Then came lentil... More
