"You'll feel like you stepped across the Moroccan border from Studio City. Food was nothing to die for but the service was exceptional. From the rose water hand wash at our table, to the fez-wearing solicitous waiters, we were pleased and you will be too. There are 3+ separate rooms including a private one that seats 8-10 if you want a private party.
Prepare to sit very low to the ground!
It's not as fancy as the former dar magreb on Sunset but cuisine is similar. The film dough bastilla is delicious. Suggestion: skip the prix fixe which is more food than you can eat and more money than you should pay. The a la carte options are fine."

"This restaurant has a very romantic vibe, and the comfortable seating and belly dancers add a unique touch for celebrating special occasions. The Bastilla is a must have and deliciously unique (crisp filo dough stuffed with minced chicken, eggs, almonds and sprinkled with powdered sugar and cinnamon). The lamb was flavorful and moist. Don't forget to save room for the homemade baklava dessert! And the hot tea is amazing with soothing flavors of honey and fresh mint."

"My friend and I had both been travelling in Morocco and were delighted to savour the very distinctive flavours of its cuisine in LA. The lemon chicken was gorgeous. Don't think chicken with lemon - it's far more refined. The place is warm and comfortable. Don't go there for the advertised belly dancer though. The food is far better. But hey, she was charming and friendly, as were the waiters. Great place for an evening with friends who enjoy sharing plates."

"When my friend suggested Moroccan food, I was hesitant but agreed. It's not my favorite profile, and even after looking over the menu I had reservations. I left with a complete change of tune because it was absolutely delicious! The lemon chicken tangine was the star, but every course was amazing. The service was nice, the ambiance was authentic appearing and lovely and I will definitely consider going back with other friends."

"The food was average at best and with maybe 4 different people who took care of us over the course of dinner it was inevitable that there was a mix up in our order. But the really strange thing was that they do this washing of the hands thing at your table. So, that's fun, but not when the person facilitating it realizes he doesn't have a towel for you and then go gets a used one from a guest two tables over and gives it to you. That was not cool."
