If you crave sushi this is the place to go. The sushi was lovely. Our kids also enjoyed their chicken strips. The wine selection was my taste. The live music was a nice touch!!!

Having visited Fez at Baghdad Cafe 2 years ago we couldn't wait to go back. What a disappointment. The snail spring rolls that had us raving were tasteless to say the least. The menu is more Thai than Arabian. The main courses were below average...More

We were a large group, 20 odd. They accommodated us in our own section of the restaurant but split us into two tables, not a problem. The menu is fairly extensive with obvious leanings towards the spicy side. Good food was had by all.
