    Try the lamb - it's sweet and not gamy vs. what you might expect on a fattier cut.

    Everything here is delicious but can we talk about the belly dancing? 😍 don't miss the bread pudding if you have the chance to order it. It's the best I've ever had anywhere.

    Mourad Lahlou redefines Moroccan cuisine from the must-order bisteeya, to sous vide short rib with carrot jam, to Melissa Chou's not-to-be-missed, and anything-but-rustic desserts. Come and indulge! Read more

    Signature drink: Like brandy? Try it muddled with persimmon, chai and brown sugar. If that's too sweet, there's vodka infused with cilantro and kaffir lime. Read more

    Best seat: Sit at the bar if you'd like to see Aziza's bartenders in action. Otherwise, a circular booth tucked under one of the Moroccan arches is the best bet - the central tables feel exposed. Read more

    Basteeya is duck pastry well worth it. Spreads for an app are good but yes they charge for extra Flatbread.

    Try the spreads! My favorite was the yogurt dill (in the middle). Order an extra side of the flat bread when you're done with round 1 so it's still warm upon delivery.

    The soup of the day, carrot and pears, very good ! The branzino (fish) bland and uninteresting, ($28) , you can forget this. The vegetarian couscous good, but not so. It was a disappointment .
