Moroccan in SF's Richmond District

This restaurant has been on my list forever, and I FINALLY went there!

Ambience: very dim and

intimate. It's actually bigger than it looks (2 rooms you can't

see from the front room), but the seating arrangements aren't good for

large parties. They have belly dancing on the weekends, but we

went on a Friday. You definitely need reservations.

Service: good and

attentive. They give you rose water for your hands, which I've

never seen done before. Our waiter was very accommodating, yet at

the same time seemed a bit arrogant (maybe because we're young?).

Food: very good!

This place is known for exotic cocktails -- I had a "fez fizz," which

is basically a pomegranate mimosa, and Shinie had this lavender and

honey martini -- the most interesting drink I've ever had. It's

like drinking sweet flowers, which sounds gross, but was actually

really good. Appetizers -- we had mediterranean spreads and the

baked seafood triangles. Both were pretty good, but what stood

out was the couscous that came with the triangles. Sooo

good! Very flavorful.

Entrees -- we had the lamb shank (pretty good), the rabbit (pretty

good), and the basteeya (kind of like a chicken pot pie, but in

phyllo). The flavors are quite varied per dish, which you don't

see often in restaurants. The basteeya was kind of a

disappointment -- it was extremely pretty though... but I was expecting

more flavor.

I was very satisfied with my visit here. If I went back, I'd try

the couscous aziza, and I'd go on the weekend to see the bellydancing
