this is my favorite little bistro, consistently good food and friendly service, which is a rarity in the les.

Went to this place on the early side (7 pm Friday night) so didn't have such a long wait. I've only had Moroccan food once, but I'd say I was a little disappointed with this place. I got a chicken apricot and prune tagine with couscous. The chicken wasn't too flavorful and there was not enough sauce.. the couscous was terrific though. Also had some appetizers, all OK but nothing spectacular. Service was kinda hurried and we were given the bill before we had finished our tea. All in all, I wouldn't recommend the place if you're looking for real Moroccan food.

I can see why people like to come to this spacious restaurant in the middle of the buzzing Lower East Side, but a recent visit to the restaurant really put me off. It rekindled my distaste for restaurants that do not accept reservations. Sure enough the hostess that Saturday night was on a power trip, what with the Fashion week crowds swelling up the attendance. I would have expected more graciousness than the "couldn't care less" attitude of the hostess. To top it all the food was pretty average. There are much better Moroccan / Middle Eastern places in New York. Definitely not going back.

as others have mentioned, this restaurant has lowered its standards. the food here is not authentic moroccan... the couscous tastes like it's from a box instead of freshly prepared, and the tagines do not appear to be even cooked in a traditional tagine. unfortunate, because years ago i remember the food here was stellar. prices have soared and, the food is ok, but if you're looking for real moroccan fare, go somewhere else.

Just ate there last night, 8/20/07 The food and service were very good! Also they have great Israeli beer.

I'm here since one month, and I should say, this is one of the best places I've been. Great vegetarian cous-cous, I suggest you to go there.

I was actually at the restaurant waiting to be seated when "A Respectable Diner" wouldn't shut the hell up about his couscous meal (note his plate was empty when he raised his complaint). Word of advice: if it's not enough food complain when it arrives, not when you've finished it. Instead you held up the entire resaurant's seating process with your whining for over 30 mins, holding up the waitstaff so they couldn't deal with other patrons. The management did everything they could to please this attention-seeker and all he wanted was a free meal. Perhaps I should try this approach next time I don't want to pay for something I already ate. Anyway, everytime I eat here the staff is friendly, the hummus/falafel platter is delicious and HUGE and the halumi appetizer is out of this world. And I split the couscous meal with my husband that night and it was plenty. ~A REAL EAST VILLAGER, not a WHINY HIPSTER.
