A tremendous find. Wonderful service and exceptional food. All in all a fantastic experience. We will be back often to this Charlestown Gem.
They had a traditional Morocan menu as well as a modern French equivalent. Very well done. Served with style and enjoyed by all four in the party. Each of us ordered a different dish and all were pleased.

It's a different night out. The setting is exotic and the menu is interesting. The belly dancing is superfluous and just a noisy distraction however it is time limited. The food promised more than it delivered. Our appetizers sounded interesting but just weren't that tasty. The short ribs looked great but the meat could have been more tender. The dessert was terrific. Our service was excellent.
Parking is difficult and valet is the best bet @ $15. We opted for regular chairs at a table rather the low-seated "Moroccan" arrangement which was uncomfortable. We did not try the downstairs smoking "Hookah" lounge although it did look like fun. I'd go for a return visit just for the novelty of it all.

Great food and very entertaining
We took our daughter for her 16th birthday and she loved it. It was fun and exciting with the belly dancers. Good ambiance, especially for a teen age girls first moroccan experience and the food was great. We would definitely go again! Fun! And wonderful place to celebrate our daughters mile stone birthday.

Great decor. We asked to be seated in a "tent" for a little romantic privacy. Food was awesome. One of the best restaurants I ever went to.

Moroccan treat, but plz no smoking!
Service, outstanding. Food outstanding. Hookah bar, downstairs outstanding. The ONLY thing that we found any issue with was a creepy feeling going down to our table at the hookah bar and having a dozen guys just staring, looking us over. Also, as non smokers, we enjoyed the hookah experience, but the people beside us were smoking cigarettes, which really threw off the wonderful taste and smell of all the flavors around us. Nothing worse than smelling strawberry mint tobacco and then someone blows cigarette smoke in your face. So, the restaurant was outstanding, but some of the clientele could stand a little more class. High recommend!

This is a gem in Boston. From food to dancing and staff, a fine experience.

Incredible dinning experience.
Incredible dinning experience. The food was unique, and there were plenty of options from the most traditional of Moroccan dishes to new world fusion. To top it off there is belly dancing and a hookah/cigar lounge. I would highly recommend this gem.

Suggested Tangierino to my husband for our anniversary dinner since he hadn't been before. Food and sangria were amazing! Excellent "old world" and "new world" options, and servers know the menu very well to make recommendations. The atmosphere is fun, and it's always a great experience whether you are there with a group or as a couple. Highly recommended!
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
this was our first experience with Tangierino and with Moroccan food- and we were very pleasantly surprised. The ambiance of the restaurant was very romantic...we were seated in a curtained off private booth. And the the food was delicious! We had the four layer appetizer and lamb and couscous. Excellent! ANd the belly dancers were an unexpected treat!

They will improve if we tell them!
Have eaten here many times but this last visit with an out-of-town friend found that the service was VERY RUSHED! Our entre was brought to the table as we were only half-way through the appetizer. Sent it back...and before we had actually finished our appetizers the waitress came and said that she wanted to bring our entres out now b/c she did not want them sitting under the heat lamps any longer! When I got my sea bass...it was luke warm...but still tasty. A note: this was a Weds and the place was slow...so the kitchen was not overly busy. The check even came quickly...the waitstaff should know to come with the check when asked and not before...unless they really have to move tables. I am confident that the restaurant will remedy this.

SO much more than expected!
This place is absolutely Amazing. I made a reservation two days ahead for my girlfriend's birthday. They called the day of to confirm reservations. When we got there we were greeted right away and knew her name and wished her a happy birthday. We were sat and in absolute awe by the whole ambiance and feel of the restaurant. Service was great! people were friendly and warm. They even gave her a birthday card. The food was amazing and the belly dancer was so much fun! BEST PLACE IVE BEEN TO...ever!

We went for dinner and then made our way down to the hookah lounge in the basement afterwards. I've never had Moroccan food but have heard great things. The food, service, drinks, and ambiance were all top notch. The lounge downstairs was really fun as well with checking out the hookah scene. Things got a little pricey but definitely enjoyable for something different.

The belly dancing was not
The belly dancing was not particularly appreciated but that's a personal preference. HOWEVER< having the music blasting so one could not talk/hear during the entire belly dancing period was quite negative and undermined any ideas of a romantic dinner.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cool vibe, good food and atmosphere. The big complaint was service. Our waitress was clearly either having an off night or was band new. After we ordered apps and drinks she came back ten minutes later asking us if we wanted to order apps or drinks?!? Our appetizers, the tuna and a salad, came before our drinks came. When we asked about the delay she said she was slammed all at once and the bartender was backed up. We ordered a pitcher if sangria, something that's not usually made to order. Almost as they were clearing the app plates, dinner had arrived. We would of liked a bit if space between courses. With two small children getting out is rare! Despite this mishap we were able to enjoy ourselves.

I had been meaning to try Tangierino for years, and finally did. We sat down at 7:20 on a Fri. night, and the place was only about a quarter full and very quiet. Great, interesting food. As a vegan I have trouble finding things I can eat in a lot of restaurants, but there were several choices here. I had the harira soup and couscous with vegetables. My husband had a seafood stew and a spicy salmon dish. We loved our choices. Very attentive service too. Right when we were about to leave the music started blaring and two belly dancers started dancing in the room we were in. Fun, but very loud. It was much more crowded by the time we left.
We'll go again; fun and delicious.

Price Point Too High
Excellent food, but I feel this place would pring in a lot more customers if the price point on the menu items were lower. The food was very well prepared, complex, and they do a wonderful job of giving you old world and new world options, but overall I felt it was quite pricey for what we got.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing, mouthwatering exotic food!
Love the food in this place! Authentic moroccan food with fusion influences.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food, great ambience. Just wish they tinted the windows because the rest of the restaurant was good lighting but the sun shining through the windows kinda ruined the lighting in our area.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Accidental great find
We got lost and ended up here. We loved it. We look forward to our next visit.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great meal and ambience
Excellent Tagine and other Moroccan choices. The duck was also excellent. The room is lovely and a belly dancer performed and that added positively to the experience. We will visit again!

We went out with a group of 10 for our wedding anniversary and wanted to try something new! We all enjoyed the atmosphere, we had a nice corner which was comfortable. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. Everyone enjoyed whatever was ordered. The entertainment was just a bonus! We would highly recommend this restaurant!

One of the best in Boston
A surprise to us, infrequent visitors to Charlestown -- a complete package of great ambience and terrific food, with valet parking to boot! The food has all the exotic ingredients and flavors/spices you could want, with enough variety to satisfy all tastes. Beautiful furnishings -- and romantic (i.e., dark!) when they turn the lights down. Waiters were very polite. But it's the food - just terrific.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect impromptu date
Stopped in at tangierino for restaurant week with my husband. We were seated at a cozy table for two with soft cushioned seats. Nice Moroccan decor, music and even a belly dancer. Food was exquisite. Prices reasonable.. Recommend.

Takes restaurant week seriously
Took a date to August restaurant week, an event some places take seriously and others seem to sleepwalk through with reliable but unremarkable menus. We needn't have worried at Tangierino, as all three courses filled our plates with interesting combinations and generous portions. I especially enjoyed the lamb shank and couscous, with the latter cooked in a stock of (and then dressed with) its seven vegetables. The only downside was not having enough space to finish its excellent cheesecake!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great!!! Atmosphere
Food was great!!! Atmosphere is very nice and different (wash your hands with warm rose water before dinner). The wait staff was attentive without being annoying. It was very delicious! I was there for restaurant week, which can sometimes be gross, even at food restaurants, but it was really good and there were MANY choices!!!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Experience as Always
I would have given it a 5 stars had it not been for the lamb chop with eggplant. The eggplant was fantastic, but the lamb chops had a lot of fat, making it difficult to eat. The dish could use some sauce.
Service was excellent; the server had a great personality and knowledge, and the manager make a point to check in on us in between meal. Food arrived in a timely manner, and my red cosmo was excellent.
. Other than that, everything were awesome. Manager make a point to check in on us between meal and our server was awesome.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
It has a lounge and hookah bar downstairs. We were upstairs in the restaurant for dinner. The food was great. Its a very good place for first dates or date night. There were some couples there and one or two tables that had families seated there with kids. I guess its kid-friendly, since there were kids there. But the ambiance is more of a fancy bar and restaurant. There was also a belly dancer - which is when the music got really loud. I will be going there again - probably to check out the hookah lounge.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
As usual, Tangierino did not disappoint. It had been a while since our last visit, but it was even better than the time before. Thank you Tangierino for a great night!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, inexcusable service
We have enjoyed Tangierino in the past and looked forward to returning. The Restaurant Week menu was very good. I could live without the belly dancing, but that is personal opinion. The service was slow from the start. When they brought two of our four entrees we assumed the next two would be coming soon. After 20 min. we had to call for a manager, as our server was no where in sight. He apologized profusely and our other two entrees showed up after our partners had completed their meals. I really think it was inattention by waiter. Be aware that the menu has recently changed. I do not think the new menu is as good as the old or the Restaurant Week menu.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I dined with two friends. We shared everything appetizers and main course. The food was just the best. It is difficult to say what was a favorite.
Service was just fine.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went with girlfriend for her birthday. Best food, service, and ambience we've experienced in a while. Had the Tanjin and Couscous Royal - Superb! Belly dancers were pretty great as well :)

Lack of Entertainmnet
Overall I loved the restaurant ,service was top notch our server was excellent ,but the main theme was the belly dancing which the girl only came around for less than 10 minutes and for the time we were there ,never saw another dancer & to me this was the reason I chose to dine at Tangerino 's.
I would not re-visit this restaurant unless the entertainment was improved

Great Birthday Celebration Restaura
I went with three other friends - all women - and we had a great night! The restaurant decor is fun and our waiter was great! He showed us pictures of his recent trip to Morrocco complete with a camel on the beach at sunset! The belly dancers were friendly and entertaining! Food was great as well. We had various types of lamb and steak. We also had appetizers recommended by our waiter that were delicious! Later, we headed downstairs to the hooka bar which was also a lot of fun! Expensive - so "special celebrations" here won't disappoint!

First Date Night in a While
Just a beautiful place to take someone special. Server was extremely friendly, courteous, and accommodating. He even brought us mint tea at the end of our meal and complimented us on our wine selection. Memorable night. The ambiance sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The food was amazing!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The short ribs were fall apart tender. the main dishes were extremely flavorful, service were efficient, before we asked we had what was needed. the atmosphere was conducive to private conversations but allowed great observations of the room. the belly dancers were amusing.

The Best Restaurant in Charlestown
This is a great restaurant top-quality A+ service all around.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife has been longing to go back to Morocan restaurant in Washington DC so when her birthday came around we looked for a Morocan restaurant in Boston.Tangierino was the choice and what a choice it was. The food was wonderful, especially the four layer tuna tartar and the eggplant. We will return to this restaurant again and bring our friends.

Morocco in Massachusetts
Tangierino has an exotic decore with low-set tables surrounded by padded chairs. There are also several small enclaves that can be separated from the rest of the rooms with curtains for privacy. Service was attentive and friendly, the blood orange cosmo was divine, and the various couscous dishes served in their own tajine were extremely flavorful. Two belly dances added to the festive feel. Overall, a wonderful place for a celebration - or just a fun night out.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic food, great atmosphere!
Very exotic! A great place to take someone you want to impress.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a wonderful romantic evening with my boyfriend. We were given a window seat which made the dinner that much nicer. Food was delicious and served quite promptly. Server was gracious and polite. Only thing I would suggest is serving the olives and hummus with pita not buns.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall the experience was
Overall the experience was really great! The only issue was we had a large group and the seating was cramped, I would of rather had a couple large tables instead of having 10 people crammed into such a small space. I will not go back with a large group, but for 4-6 people its ideal.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for my birthday and I had really been looking for something different. This place definitely got that right; everything from the atmosphere to the service, the food was great the belly dancers were fun. I would highly recommend this place !
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We visited Morocco several years ago and loved the food. Tangerino re-created that experience for us! Very authentic-deiicious!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Ate at this place and the food was incredibly awesome... I usually eat in the North End but decided to try something different. This place is awesome food was so good... Service was a little slow when we asked for the wine list.... And the server kept putting the wrong food in front of the wrong person is we had switch plates.... But all in all I would recommend this place to all of my friends... We plan on going back this weekend!!!

More than a night on the town
The high quality of the food alone is enough reason to go. But add in the fact that the ambiance is relaxing and soothing, the staff are professional and charming, the location is convenient and unique, and the attention to detail is above and beyond, and well, you get a reason to go out, an experience wrapped up in its destination -- I truly got more than a delicious dinner -- I got a night on the town that took me away from everything ordinary and made me smile.
