Menu is made up of a contemporary twist to Moroccan lamb, beef and poultry dishes, as well as, seafood familiar to the extensive coastline of Morocco. If you have a penchant for vegetarian dishes, those can also be found here in your choice of spinach, carrot, eggplant, and other dishes. A wide selection of brochette skewers are available off the open kebab grill. Desserts vary weekly from pastry puffs, cake, and almond-flavored pastries made by former pastry-chef and owner, Riyad Bouizar. Dining includes high tables, bar, booths and tables. Extensive bar and mixed drink offerings with television to keep you up-to-date on latest games.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was amazing. Amazing options. Have to try the chicken puff pastry thing and lamb tagine. Just perfect"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We had a variety of foods - cigars and calimari for appetizers, a chicken tagine, beef kebab, and couscous with lamb for entrees. All were tasty and very generous proportions. Waiter was friendly and knowlegeable, made sure we knew what all the items on the menu were. Cocktails were also good. I didn't give this five stars because it was too loud to talk, our window table gave us an unpleasant view of smokers outside, and the service was slow. It felt more like we were in a bar with food than a nice restaurant. The food was worth returning for, but I wouldn't go back on a weekend night."

  • "Impromptu dinner with friends on a Saturday night found us at a spot we have been looking at since coming soon. From start to finish the hospitality was outstanding, food unreal to the point that we have been talking about it all week. Manager - Chef were top notch. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "I went to Mazagan with two other friends and we had superb service to match our excellent meal. The wait-staff were attentive and knowledgeable, and really added to our overall experience. The food was excellent and the menu had great options for anyone's diet preference (meat/vegetarian/vegan). The portions were just right and the value was excellent. I recommend Mazagan for anyone looking for a great dining experience along Columbia Pike."

  • "The food was quite good, it seems like the chef really cares about his food. I didn't care for the atmosphere. They were blaring some heavy thumping bass dance or hip-hop music that I found very distracting. Service was OK, the server spoke too fast and softly. That, combined with his unfamiliar accent, made him hard to understand clearly, but he was very friendly. He also got my order wrong, I ordered the paprika chicken and got the saffron chicken, probably because he couldn't hear me over the thumping bass. It was still quite good. I was just annoyed. They also keep the foul-smelling Hookahs in a separate room away from everyone else, which is good. Good food, but I'm not sure if I'll go back because I couldn't stand the music."

  • "We went to Mazagan for the second time on a Saturday night. Everyone's dinner arrived together except my husband's. The waiter didn't realize it was missing until we flagged him down. His kabob meal arrived 10 minutes later after the rest of ours was cold and we were mostly done with the meals. The kabob skewers were so hot they burned my husbands fingers. While the waiter apologized for the delay, we still payed full price for our dinner and drinks and never saw a manager as I would have expected in a new restaurant. "
