Interesting place as has an Italian and a Moroccan menu - food very good though would recommend a starter as the main meal took some time to arrive - that is fine if you ar eprepared for it

First off the food was actually pretty good, staff seemed so so making an effort but a bit tired and came across maybe a little jaded. Decor wise the place just seemed as if it had tack randomly nailed to the walls with wild abandon, no thought of cultural origin or theme. Just came across as tacky. Had the worst excuse for a mojito I have ever witnessed here. Staff seriously need some cocktail training.

This restaurant is a mixture of middle eastern and “italian” food and so the menu is double sided with the food from each region on a separate side.
That way you can mix and match which is great because when my sister and I went for lunch she had a tagine with couscous and I had pasta and we still benefitted from the two mains for the price of one offer which was available.
Both meals were good and the portion size was more than enough.

The service was good and the price was reasonable.

The restaurant is in the centre of Canterbury but as it is in a side street off the main thoroughfare it wasn’t crowded when we eat at lunchtime but was busy enough to make it feel well visited.

Would recommend.
