I'm assuming it's the husband and wife owners who are also the waiters. The woman is friendly and pleasant. The man is kind of gruff. My girlfriend asked for water after our uncorked wine was poured, and the man snapped a bit about only being...More

Very good combinations - like my Chicken Pesto which has a sour cherry sauce. Juicy and very flavorful. Very delicious soup was included in the price. Unusually good falafel. Attentive waitress without hovering. Not rushed. Very pleasant atmosphere. BYOB without a corkage fee. Liquor store...More

Mixed appetiser plate was perfect - especially the thing with walnuts, can't remember what it was called - then garlic chicken kebabs, couscous, etc as main courses were all extremely well-judged. Lovely genuine service, great music in the background....More

Go about once per year to this restaurant and it never disappoints. The menu is small but it delivers with great constancy. They don't have a liquor license, so buy a bottle of wine across the street. Always good always friendly.

When I dine at the Casbah I am always delighted by the consistent taste of the food and of course the service. The interior is small, charming and the music selection relaxing. Nick is always welcoming and Nordine the waiter's mood is never changing. Accommodating...More

Amazing food. Lamb kabobs and the appetizers are the best but chicken and fish also exceptional. Small place so need reservations during the weekend and food takes some to cook.
