The welcome and service was very good. The restaurant and food I felt is more suited to a quick bite to eat rather than a evening out type of occasion.

Excellent! Small friendly place with tons of atmosphere. Food is exceptional. Not hot & spicy as I dreaded, but full of flavours and unusual combinations. Would recommend this restaurant without question.

When my friends booked this place I must admit I was not looking forward to it. How wrong was I. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. Definitely will be going back as I can't wait to try all the other dishes. Great place. Well Done!!

Popped in for lunch on Friday 21st with my step dad as a thank you for doing some work on the house. As usual we had very good service and excellent quality food which was colourful,plentiful and (mainly) healthy. Great value too! Hope to return one evening for another great meal with a true Moroccan atmosphere
