Great atmosphere. Food is always bang on. In winter, I recommend you sit as far away from the door as you can, because the cold blows in every time the door opens. The staff are great too.

It was our first time and certainly not our last. Our waiter,...well, we've never experienced that kind of service in our life. He was most attentive. And the food was excellent, so fresh and the blend of spices heavenly! As we say in french "c'est un incontournable!".

Visited the Main street location this past weekend and we were wowed. From the moment you walk into the gorgeously decorated restaurant to the moment our insanely attentive waiter walked us out of the door we enjoyed every moment.

The decoration of the space really makes you feel as if you've walked into another world offering you a glimpse into what it may be like to visit Morocco or Tunisia. Since we were lucky enough to be there on a night where the talented Andre Saulnier played flamenco guitar, it really took you away to another time and place.

The service was attentive and professional, the waiter explained each course to us as he served our plates. We were presented with a complimentary appetizer of juicy whole olives along with a toasted pita covered in za'atar and sesame seeds. Then we shared the mixed dip platter which included small portions of traditional chick pea hummus, baba ganoush, avocado and spinach dip as well as beet hummus served with fresh pita bread. All of them were delicious, especially the avocado and spinach dip.

I had opted for the Oasis salad which consisted of mixed greens, figs, dates and beets among other tasty things. We were almost full when our mains arrived which were the Shish Taouk (chicken) and the Kofta kebabs but we still forged on. The portions were large, the fresh vegetables grilled to perfection and the saffron rice was fluffy and perfumed. Best thing on either plate was the garlicky white sauce which I believe was Toum served with the chicken skewers. It was like eating a delicious garlic cloud...Hahaha.

When they brought our bill (which was very reasonable considering the amount of food and the incredible service we received) they also served us a shot glass of hot Moroccan tea which was, unsurprisingly, also delicious.

Would recommend this place very, very highly for a night out. Worth every penny. We will be back.

P.S. Order the Tunisian lemonade! To die for!
