We almost passed up this place because of some poor reviews but decided to try it anyway because it was close to our hotel. We each ordered the middle size feast which was plenty for the two of us. We had three salads, a delicious chicken/nut mixture in filo dough for the appetizer, and for the main course we chose the chicken with green olives (a whole 1/2 chicken) which was tender but just OK, and the lamb with honey which was delicious. The cookies for dessert were really yummy.
The service was very slow but we got the impression that everything is slow paced here. The belly dancer was entertaining and she had other guests up dancing with her which was fun to watch. The music was incredibly loud so we took the cookies back to the hotel and passed on the tea. We go back on our next trip.

This place is filthy.
Went there while stranded in a business trip on Valentine's day. Picture this: 4 guys getting into a Moroccan place for dinner on Valentine's day.
As soon as we entered the place we realized we had not been very wise with our selection, however it was 9:30 on a day when all restaurants are fully taken. We decided to stay and give it the benefit of the doubt. All of us regretted it 100 times.
The food was a fix menu for the occasion, but it looked quite interesting. What we got was almost disgusting. The way things were presented, the way waiters treated the food (fingers inside plates, guys!!!), the whole atmosphere: from the stained carpet to the crumbling ceiling, from the rotten couches to the code-protected restroom (no joke!) all was, at best, nauseating.

The one- star reviews put it very well, this place seems by design to extract maximum cash from its customers while taking 0 care with the quality of the food. The cushions, dancing etc. serve as useful distractions. Very disappointed, will not return.

No Complaints at all! My friends and I ventured to try Moroccan food since we have never eaten Moroccan. We decided on Casablanca since we wanted to eat and see belly dancing. We ordered the Kashbah Feast. Plenty of food. The server (I can't remember his name) catered to our needs. He was the best! After we placed our meal, we decided to order hummus while we waited. It was on the house! All of our food was very tasty. Yes, our meal came out a little slower than at typical restaurants but this isn't typical fast food. It was fresh and the server brought it out in enough time so that our other food could digest and let us engage in conversation. I would definitely go back again. We sat in one of the side seating areas which was very intimate and comfortable.

Everyone skips by this place because you cannot see inside the restaurant from the sidewalk and it looks seedy from the hidden entrance and closed up windows. But I've had good food there and fun experiences with friends. They have live belly dancer shows and the ladies are always very good. I've had good food here and enjoy it. Reminds me of when I was in Morrocco.
