We had a nice dinner in this restaurant, with tasty dishes. We started with a small appetizer (squid) that we shared. This dish was a bit smaller than expected, but very nice. The main dish was a gyrosh for my girlfriend and the toeareg dish from the grill for me. Both were very nice and plentiful. We had a Chilean wine with it that was nice as well. The only (minor) negative point was that the service was not very fast. Nevertheless, the service was friendly and correct.

This cosy restaurant is located in a small, convivial street in the city center. When the weather is good, you can sit outside on small tables in the street (it’s a pedestrianized zone with a nice atmosphere). Inside there’s a very cosy, maroccan interior filled with the scent of middle eastern aromas.
The menu consists of middle eastern mezze for starters (dolma’s, pastries,…), Tajines, couscous dishes and different grill plates. All with mostly chicken or lamb and you can always choose between couscous, flatbreads or rice on the side. We were with a party of 8 and had to wait for more than 1 hour, but that didn’t bother us really. Making a tajine takes time i guess… Take the time to build up your appetite because the servings were more than reasonable! I had the toeareg tajine with lamb, wich was very nice, but i would definitely recommend the tajine with kefta in tomato sauce that my companions ate. That was a very savoury dish. The grilled lamb came with a assortment of nice sauces . We were least impressed with the couscous dish with lamb.
There was no more room for dessert so we drank delicious maroccan mint tea with lot’s of sugar.
We had a great time in this cosy restaurant and will definitely go back.

Lovely Moroccan restaurant 1 minute from the Oude Markt. Cozy and warm interior which definitely adds to the atmosphere. We were four and had a number of dishes including tajine, a mixed grill platter and a vegetarian offering and we enjoyed our food which is served with couscous and Moroccan bread. For dessert we had the assorted cookies which were yummy! Toeareg is probably one of the best kept secrets in Leuven and ideal for a night out with friends.
Tip: make sure to have a reservation as the (rather small) restaurant fills up quickly.

Honestly, I think I would just come here for the soup and phyllo dough stuffed with chicken... it is amazing. The main course Tajine is kind of over priced and does not really hit the spot. The cous cous on the side is great and I also like the tea you can get at the end. If I were to go again, lamb meat is the best, the kefta isn't really soft like it should be.

Overall, if you are in the mood for cous cous, not a bad choice of places to go.
