This family-owned eatery is a hidden gem. I came here for lunch on a Friday on day visit to Brussels with my family. Located 5 minutes walk from Brussel Central station away from the touristy areas so very authentic. Lovely ambiance and wonderful hospitality from father/daughter and mum cooking amazing authentic home-cooked style food.
We all had the chicken couscous (only available on Fridays) which was delicious with the chicken being super tender and falling off the bone, along with some traditional mint and marrakech tea. Best couscous I have ever had! We were offered complimentary refreshing salad as a starter which was yum.
Wonderful hospitality, atmosphere and lovely food. Thank you!

Amazing authentic Moroccan food all made "with love" by a genuine sweet Moroccan family (Father wife daughter) makes you feel at home. As for the food you will sure come back to try the whole menu such as Pastilla, Tajine and kouskous.. Soup, sweets and Tea not to be missed as well.
A must visit every time in Brussels.
Bon appetit!

Went here after reading the reviews, but I found the food to be just ok. Not at all amazing as others suggest.

We walked to this place after reading the amazing reviews- it was supposed to be open at 18.00 so I would recommend calling before you make the journey !! Disappointed
