Small and cozy themed ambiance, on the expensive side for the area ($15-18/serving). The hummus and pita to start was very good. The chicken and lamb couscous tangible were served in a tangible clay pot, but we were surprised it had little flavor, it was served with a "salsa" ( more like a dressing) also with little flavor. Too much... More

Al-Yamal is a very small, beautifully decorated Moroccan restaurant with good, if not great, food. Our main dishes - lamb couscous and lamb Al-Kasbur, which was served with an herby tomato sauce and potatoes, had very tender meat and were served in generous portions. An extra little bowl of sauce for the couscous was a welcome touch, along with the... More

I think this restaurant is a bit over-rated. While the food was nice, there was no "wow factor". The physical plant is small, pleasant and well-heated in winter, but the decor is definitely more exotic than the food. If fish and chips is your usual fare, the menu might be exciting, but those who seek more diverse culinary experiences, this... More

A quiet and cosy restaurant serving delicious Morrocan cuisine. The owner was warm and helpful as he gave us recommendations on what to order for our party of five. The Arab bread was soft and fluffy even a while after it was served. The kofta was delicious. Dinner got better and better with every dish served. Loved the chicken tagine... More

We recently visited this restaurant while on holiday - we had hummus/bread for starters, vegetarian cous cous and lamb dish on the recommendation of the manager. We also had some red Moroccan wine (surprisingly good) to accompany the food with and some mint tea to finish off. No complaints at all, good service, great food and nice ambience. It seems... More
