    Been twice once had a wonderful meal. Second time the food was so big standard. Mezze platter all tasted store bought I was so disappointed. However, the decor and atmosphere is spot on, so original!

    Disappointing not much choice of Moroccan goods or is it a restaurant? I wasn’t sure what it was.

    I like the theme of the place. Great addition to Lark Lane. I have seen many restaurants come and go over the years and I hope this one lasts.
