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 and the prices above average. The one positive was that the waitress was excellent ....... More

I gave 5 stars when we visited this restaurant last year when we were in the area. Unfortunately this visit was not as good. The staff were very smart and efficient. My husband had to send his steak back because it was cold and also the serving was meagre : just steak and chips - no accompanying veg or salad.... More

Sushi and curries were very good. Service pleasant. Food took a bit long for a quick business lunch, not an issue for those not on business.

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.

Visited the Fez for dinner while on business in White River. The restaurant is cozy with a warm fire (it wasn't cold outside at all). Lots on offer on the menu. I had the Moroccan Lamb served in a tagine but it was actually a lamb casserole. It tasted nice but I won't be rushing back here for this dish.
