Took a friend here for lunch who had not eaten here before. We ordered the Samkeh Harrah (barramundi) dish and the Chicken Tangine dish. We were able to put the meals in the middle and share them. Both the main meals and the Katifi for dessert were delicious. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxing. Will definitely go again and highly... More

We have been here... More

Staff were indifferent to feedback as if they had heard it all before. This may be the problem with Canberra. The locals go to their favourite hidden spot and places like this attract... More

Dear Guest, We appreciate your review. We can assure you that all our food is prepared from fresh ingredients.

The chicken tagine is... More

We visited this restaurant in a cool evening and were not disappointed. We shared the $39 banquet, and the food was great - yummy dips and the meats were tender and juicy. The amount of food was just right too - pleasantly full by the end, but sadly we couldn't fit in desserts!!! Next time, and we have booked to... More

Lovely food and service every time, the staff are delightful and the food is superb. Had the fish which was the perfect amount of chilli on a cold Canberra night. Paired with a fantastic Shiraz from the wine specials.

A group of six friends celebrated 2 birthdays. Four of us had the $39 banquet which had a good variety of various Mediterranian dishes.I would have liked taboule included. Everybody enjoyed their meal and the atmosphere. The service was very good worth a return visit
