    Decided to try out Tangier after reading positive reviews on OpenTable and Yelp. Definitely happy with my decision. It wasn't crowded - which part of me wanted it to be for the success of their business - but the other part was glad to have a peaceful meal. First of all, the prices are unreal, especially for Portland. And then the actual food...so good. I felt like it was the closest to Morocco I'll ever get. I got the Eggplant Casserole with Chicken Shawarma - every bite was better than the first. I've already recommended this place to several people and look forward to eating here again.

    This wonderful restaurant is less formal than many others on opentable. It feels more like a casual cafe, is family run (mom and daughter in the kitchen, son waiting tables), and is a fantastic value. Expect warm, fresh, billowy pita bread and large portions. I highly recommend the tagine of lamb and dried fruit.

    Great find in a very competitive food market (Portland). Tangier has a very big menu with lots of vegetarian and vegan options--they even offer pizza. Prices are very reasonable and portions are bigger than average. We loved their hummus--terrific! Our server was very attentive and professional. If you like Moroccan food or Mediterranean food in general, this restaurant is a nice change of pace.

    This is a family owned/run business and make you feel as if you are special friends. The food was beyond extraordinaire as are the owners. Can't find a thing to complain about other than they don't live in my city!

    I ordered the eggplant casserole with lamb. The red sauce was absolutely delicious. The vegetables were melty and the dish itself very flavorful. I thought there could have been more eggplant but, for the price, I couldn't complain too much. My husband liked the chicken swarma but said it was not the best he's ever had and hoped for a larger portion. The cabbage rolls and accompanying sauce...excellent! An appetizer (served with large pita), two entrees, four drinks, and dessert set us back around $50 plus a tip. Not too bad for dinner downtown.

    We dined at Tangier on our first night in Portland. We were looking for a reasonably priced, relatively simple meal, and Tangier delivered. The menu offered a wide range of options including numerous vegetarian and vegan options. All of the ingredients tasted fresh and were well-prepared. The pita bread that accompanied the entrees was extremely good. The only room for improvement that I could identify was a very limited choice of wine. But the Cabernet that we drank was a good accompaniment to the entrees.

    Tasty food, but some of the items on the menu were a little bit difficult to interpret. The service was a little slow, and the drinks were so-so.
