We went on a Friday night and enjoyed the belly dancing. My wife had the lamb shish kebab while i had the chicken tagine with cous cous. Both were really good. We finished off with the baklava which was good too I would highly recommend

An Arabic restaurant with fabulous decorations and tasty food. It's Moroccan atmosphere with a great service from many girls working at. Sometimes they have a buffet not a menu. The price is normal and perfect.

Wonderful and memorable meal, especially the cocktails and mezze. Only disappointment was the lack of the advertised belly-dancer. We shall have to return another Friday night to see her!
