I loved this place! The bellydancing and food was great, the food was different and exotic. Be prepared to...

Worst

I am always open to new experiences, and this was not my first Mongolian restaurant, but most of the food here was just bad...and its on sunset??? unacceptable. sorry

A total rip-off! 2/28/2010

What a rip off!!! Do not got there. It's outrageously expensive for what it is. We could have gone to Melisse or Chaya and pay the same price. Cost us $75 per person for something that probably should have cost $25 at the very most (I was hungry when I left). Basic couscous, average brochettes, dried tart of some kind, cold bread, old towels for napkins, a very basic fruit bowl for desert and basic dried cookies, a few drinks and mint tea - that's it. Service was average, almost rude at some point. Plus everything seems a little dirty and you wonder if they they do not recycle the brochettes!! The only thing is the architecture, but then again, the lightening is wrong. If I could put 0 stars, I would. Pros: Nice entrance door Cons: Everything more

Example: great place for good bread 3/26/2009

This place needs to be updated. They even give you old towels for a napkin. The food used to be good but now it's horrible. The dancers there look old with skin hanging off them. After the owner died I see that this place is ready to be axed for how can it stay in business? The bread was old and the meat tasted like cafeteria food. There's the same down the block that's cheaper and nice looking dancers called Moon of Tunis. Pros: better than throwing the money out on the street Cons: food not good for the money more

Food is whatever, but service is terrible. 1/23/2009

We went to this restaurant because my friends teacher was belly dancing there that night. The menu is set and ran about $35 per person. The eggplant salad to start was really good, but when I asked him for a fork or a spoon to eat it with he told me that I was supposed to eat it with my hands, because that was the tradition. Even though all of the tables around us had silverware. He ended up bringing me a spoon, but with attitude. After this incident, he was rude for the rest of the evening, and when he brought the bill, I asked him for change for my $100 bill, and he told me he didn't have change. I was so disgusted at this point, that I couldn't wait to leave. We were 4 girls all together, so we paid with cash, and the balance on 1 girls credit card, he took the bill and asked us if we would be tipping him using this cash or if we were going to put it on the card. He was so rude it was unbelievable. This place looked like it was right out of some village, and they gave you freaking beach towels as napkins, and they keep the bread in a sombrero like basket that EVERYONE in the restaurant puts their hands on to take their own bread. I could go on, and on, but all I can say is that there are a MILLION other restaurants in Los Angeles, that are soooooo much better than this place. I will never go there again. Pros: Honestly, there are no pros. Cons: The service, the prices, the cleanliness. more

Food- Not So Good 1/2/2009

We went here for New Years and although we had a great time in the company of our close friends, the food was bland and overcooked in general. Even the bread wasn't good. It would have been nice for someone to tell me when I made the reservation that it would be a price fixed meal. We would have preferred to order from a menu and have more choice. I would skip this place if you are looking for good Moroccan food. We also did not love the ambiance-- it was a bit bright for dinner. Pros: Good for Large Group Cons: Bad Food more

Too many courses of very rich food. 5/25/2008

I loved the interior and the whole look of the place but I have been here twice now with a large group and did not enjoy the experience either time.\r There are too many courses and the food is incredibly rich. Some of the dishes are supposed to be eaten with your hands but it doesn't really work in large groups with sloppy sauces! Our group was put in a very dark corner with no lamps or candles and we could not hear the music. I felt that I was paying for lots of food that I did not really want as it is a set dinner. Pros: wonderful interior with fountain and mosaics Cons: Set dinner with too many courses more

Perfect For an Arabian Nights Experience minus the horses 2/25/2008

The decor was gorgeous. The belly dancers were cool. Feel free to join in if you like. The food was very disappointing. I found it to be bland and very watered down. I felt like I wanted to add salt and pepper to most of the dishes that were served. The wait staff was attentive and the service was excellent. You're paying for the experience. Pros: Ambience, valet parking, entertainment Cons: Food more

we were disappointed! too expensive and you feel glutenously full. 5/20/2007

me and my boyfriend went on a friday evening and had a good time. but the belly dancer was not pretty at all, she was my mother's age or older. they automatically served everyone a 7 course meal!!! can you imagine. well we were very relaxed but by the 4th course we were full and had to pay a $110 bill for the both of us. we also had one alcoholic beverage each. i don't recommend it because it's not all that it seemed to be. not worth the money you will end up spending. left overs aren't good either. ;( Pros: service Cons: entertainment, food, pricy more

GOT ROBBED!!! 5/3/2007

BE WARE!!! We paid our 400 dollar bill and were wait for the valet to bring our car when the waiter and manager came out and accused us of not paying. We explained to him that if we had not paid the bill than we would have run away, not stayed there for 15 minutes while they refused to even look for the cash or talk to other waiters. The owner then called the police even though all 6 of us stayed there. The manager told our dates in explatives that we were criminals. THE EXPERIENCE is not WORTH THIS RUDE ATMOSPHERE...!!!!\r \r Simply put: someone on the staff is a criminal and the owner did not even consider the possiblity!! Pros: Fun Atmosphere Cons: Robbed by the Staff (literally) more

talk about stepping into a different world!!! 1/20/2007

OMG!!! I took my boyfriend of five years here fro his birthday. It was awesome. As soon as we walked in we were like ""where are we""... the decor is awesome and fun. There are no tables,chairs, or silverware here-- instead there are low couches that line the rooms full will pillows you can relax on while you await one of the seven courses that is coming your way. Everyone from the host to the waiters are wearing traditional clothing and you really get transported to Morroco while you are here-- like I said SEVEN courses and boy are they tasty... and to top it all of live belly dancing!!!!!! For two plan on around 100.00 including drinks... very reasonable for all the food you get (they are happy to give you a box for all the lef overs). The only thing I felt like I was missing was my hookah! Pros: food, atmosphere,dancers, pillows!!!! Cons: no hookahs-- more

Impressive Decor, Romantic, Excellent Food 12/28/2006

Dar Maghreb is an excellent date spot if you really want to WOW your spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend. The decor is extremely intricate, it makes you feel like in a morrocan castle once you enter the restaurant. The food is great and the portion is generous, and not to forget it's a 7 course meal. I think $37/person is quite reasonable considering the quality and the amount of food you're getting. Just remember to come with an empty stomach. You don't want to miss a single course, especially not the B'Stilla, which is just excellent and you can't just find it in any Morrocan restaurant (The dish is difficult to make). more

Eh...not that impressive 11/21/2006

The decor of the restaurant is wonderful. The food was okay. The service was sub-par. The prices are high. The belly dancer dances around to all the tables summoning you to put dollars in her outfit. Fun but I had that feeling like she won't walk away unless you give her money. Overall, the restaurant was eh. Pros: Awesome decor Cons: Mediocre food, high prices more

Some of the RUDEST service I've ever received! 9/23/2006

My boyfriend and I were having a romantic dinner when a DJ set up right behind his chair and began playing loud dance music for the birthday group next to us. They all started clapping, screaming and dancing. It was SOOOO loud that I couldn't believe we were expected to continue to eat a meal, much less have conversation. We complained and were reseated, although it was still loud, and then the maitre d' came over and said that our new table was reserved and moved us back to our original table. Needless to say, the romantic dinner was basically ruined, and we asked for the check with two courses left to go. They still charged us the full amount, and when I told the hostess it was too loud, she said, ""Well, it's Saturday night."" Well, last I checked, this was supposed to be a restaurant, not a dance club. I COULD NOT BELIEVE that they not only refused to remedy the situation (most restaurants would have apologized and given a discount), but were so rude about it!!! more

Feed each other bite by bite 3/11/2006

My boyfriend took me here for Valentine's Day because the decor reminded him of the time we spent together in Southern Spain. The place is gorgeous, and makes you feel like you are somewhere other than LA. The service was fantastic. But nothing gets better than the food! The chicken and raisin filo appetizer, the honey lamb, the roasted quail...I could go on and on. Every new dish they brought was better than that last. The place is so romantic, and you can feed your date with your fingers! Excellent, delicious... Pros: the exceptional food, romantic setting, finger food goodness Cons: you end up stuffed more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Thick pillows ring low tables, and a belly dancer periodically drifts by, moving to pounding Middle Eastern music. Waiters in velvet pantaloons perform a traditional Moroccan hand-washing ceremony on diners. The six-course set-price menu begins with starters like herb-flecked lentil soup, couscous and cold seasoned vegetables. Entrees include crispy roasted quail, garlicky shrimp and b'stilla--shredded chicken and almonds wrapped in phyllo dough.
