With spicy aromas moving through the room and vibrant colours surrounding us in the small restaurant of Al Casbah, I felt very at home and relaxed. The meze dish blew me away with options ranging from baba ganoush (roasted aubergine with tahini and garlic) to falafel to roasted beets. The bread was fresh and all of the dished were well... More

If this restaurant was local to me I would visit quite often the service is good, the food is decent and the price reasonable. It's very small and very busy and the open grill helps add to the atmosphere. (Although I wouldn't like to sit next to it on a warm summer's evening) Overall quite good.

We're both vegan and stumbled on this place while searching for a restaurant that offered something interesting and different. We've never had North African food before, so were unsure of what to expect, but the food was really good. I'm not normally a fan of couscous, but the couscous dish was so full of flavour and like nothing I've had... More

We walked passed this restaurant on our way home after a hard day building the set for an art fair. The next night, following the Private View we visited for dinner. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table at 9:30 in the evening which is a great indication of the success of this place! The food, service, wine... More

Enjoyed the food which we had very much. Made a booking as the last time I came it was rammed! Main meals very filling but worth a visit.

I went there with two friends of mine, instead of getting a main each, we took mix of starters to share and a meat board, mostly lamb. The food was just perfect! Also we were very happy with the service as everyone put an effort to please us. Would definitely come back to taste more!
