Some interesting items and flavors are found here. The standout was the Pastilla appetizer: fresh, crispy pastry surrounds chicken and spices! Yummy! Wishing the seasonings on other dishes had not been "watered down" for American tastes... Nice decor, great service. Very good dinner!

This good neighborhood restaurant offers a wide variety of meat and vegetable dishes as well as hummus, baba ganoush, etc. that will satisfy the cravings of anyone liking Middle Eastern food, particularly Moroccan. The portions are not overwhelming but sizable and tasty. We went on a Sat. night when there was a belly dancer with music too loud to talk... More

I can't believe I've worked near here for years and hadn't tried it until this month--I'll certainly be back. I ordered the Sahara meal, which is a great way to try many of the flavors; it includes: falafel, hummus, baba-ghanooj, tabbouleh, fattouch, gyros, chicken, kafta, and beef served with saffron rice. I had enough to take home to eat for... More

My daughter wanted to go out for Moroccan food for a school assignment. we picked it because it was close. The service was friendly, the food terrific, and the atmosphere very authentic. We will return even without a school assignment.

Do not hesitate to eat here if you are looking for fresh, well-prepared Middle Eastern food. My family ate here for lunch in September 2016 and had an excellent meal. The falafel, hummus, and baklava was the best I have had outside Turkey. We would certainly return for dinner next time we are in town. The service was excellent as... More

The food was authentic and tasted really good, the portions were decent. From a service perspective our order of Hummus was forgotten even though we had paid for it and we only found out after we got back to our hotel (honest mistake I feel) The other part was insisting on their closing time when I called to place an...
