    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.

    Come with a group, reserve a room upstairs, bring too much wine, get weird

    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.

    7 courses AND a belly dancer- what an experience!

    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.

    great food

    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

    Best time!! Went with 10 girls on a bachalorette party and had a blast!!! Yes it took about 3 hrs but we allowed it to take that long!! Eggplant salad was to die for and best of all...byob!!!

    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.
