We shared a selection of starters, all were delicious as were the pomegranate drinks which the children had and and the Algerian wine which the adults enjoyed. Our party had... More

Very tasty, fresh and well-cooked food. Great, friendly service too. The meze to share was lovely and our mains of the grilled chicken and lamb tagine were delicious too. We also enjoyed the Casablanca beer and our 5-year old enjoyed trying everything.

This place has the most flavoursome food in Cambridge, we all had something different and I couldn't fault a single thing. When we got here it was busy, however they manage to squeeze us in. Food came so quickly and customer service was on point! Definitely a place I will be coming back to soon. New local :)

Been living in Cambridge for 20+ years and can honestly say this is best spot in Cambridge. Beautiful Algerian restaurant located near the city centre which Is backed up with great customer service and sublime food. Everyone on our table ordered something different and after trying each dish, it was all 10/10. Only bad point is that I've just moved... More

I've been to this restaurant five or six times. Food is definitely good. Service varies (the young men that run the place know their stuff, but they sometimes prefer to sit at the back of restaurant while their hired help do the serving and customer contact - if only they realised that it is their presence that had made this...

We went with friends and had a great meal. The restaurant is fairly small with and tables quite close together, but I think this adds to the cosy authentic atmosphere. The service was fantastic, the staff were friendly and efficient and helped us decide what to order. The food was delicious with some interesting dishes and plenty to choose from.... More

Just went for a second visit with my husband and it was excellent. Atmosphere is lovely, service really friendly and food was excellent. We had the meze starter, I had the soup and my husband had the mixed grill. We had the eastern mess for dessert along with Algerian pastries with mint tea. Prices are reasonable. No improvements needed here.... More

A local Cambridge institution. Great authentic food, buzzy atmosphere and the most friendly and welcoming staff in Cambridge. They will always try and find you a table but on busy nights book ahead. Highly recommended.
