    All of the food is phenomenal. Aromatic, tangy, earthy, rich in flavor. The whole experience from washing in rose water to the tapestries hanging on the walls was something I would gladly do again.

    Delicious! Come with a healthy appetite because there are seven courses. Vegetarian options were all delicious, especially the lentil dish!

    Amazing experience from the moment they wash your hands to the moment you use them to eat the food that is dripping on your bath towels on your knees while a belly dancer makes you get up and dance

    Had two incredible meals here. They happily accommodated a vegetarian meal, which was spectacular. It's BYO, they provide glasses and ice and everything. Amazing service.

    Prepare yourself for more than just a meal. It is a great Moroccan experience. Plan on being there for 3-4 hours while you indulge in a delicious seven course feast.

    For 35 years, the only option has been a seven-course Moroccan menu (for a reasonable $25). On weekends, look for belly dancers.

    Ring the door bell and be sure to enjoy the rosewater hand bath!

    Secret hideout away from the buzz of South Street. Lots of couples so go as a pair, or as a huge group. Awkward for mid-sized groups.

    This Moroccan den is unmarked and indiscernible from the outside. In-the-know diners knock at 517 S. Leithgow Street to gain entry to the restaurant. Read more

    Absolutely delicious seven course (yes, seven) moroccan meal. The lamb and egg pastry are especially to die for but everything is amazing. Expect to be in a happy food coma afterwards!

    The beef was overcooked, the lamb was bland, and the chicken was dry. And the service was as slow as possible. The meal took FOUR HOURS. Don't go here, worst idea ever.
