This restaurant is amazing.This restaurant is amazing. Food was great, but the best part was the decor/ambiance. Definitely hoping to come back very soon!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and atmosphereI brought my wife and 8 year old daughter here for Mother's Day. We all enjoyed the experience. The ladies are still talking about how good the food was. And I would highly recommend the sangria.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFABULOUSGreat atmosphere and the belly dancers were phenomenal...they really get the crowd going!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and memorable dining experienceThe food was exceptionally good, but this was a particularly memorable dining experience because of the ambiance, service and attention to detail. The belly dancing was somewhat less than authentic, but still fun for the novelty.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVery friendly wait staff (butVery friendly wait staff (but slow), excellent food, interesting menu - but they were out of lots of things - were in the middle of rewriting the menu so some things weren't available, so it took awhile to actually decide what to order. Lovely decor with wonderful cozy and romantic curtained nooks. We had a very enjoyable experience and would go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbiance is definitely greatAmbiance is definitely great in Tangerino and our table had rose pedals on it:) I thought that our host was a bit too serious and I was also surprised to be carded when we went from the restaurant down to the bar. Again, the guy checking our ids was way too serious. Our Russian waitress was really nice and she was knowledgeable. The appetizers were very tasty (we had the Eggplant tagine and the lamb in filo dough). They were smaller than usual appetizers, but it wasn't a surprise since I read other people's reviews and that was mentioned. For us the size was fine and left us hungry enough for more food. IT was a bit disappointing because they didn't serve the brochettes anymore, but the monk fish special and the lemony chicken made up for i4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I very much enjoyedMy wife and I very much enjoyed Tangierino. We went on a whim as we happened to be in Charlestown. We'll now look for opportunities to return.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSatisfied customerI really enjoyed the food and the setting. I was there one year ago on a first date.We been dating for one year and decided to go back for our one year celebration.It was just as I remembered it. Great food,romatic and awsome service.Oh yeah my boyfreind enjoyed the belly dancers.I will recommend this place to others.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my third time to TangierinoThis is my third time to Tangierino. I must say that the food was very good--even better than I remembered! We order the salmon tagine, Moroccan eggplant, vegetable couscous, asaparagus with za'atar and aromatic mushrooms. Aromatic mushrooms were nothing special but the rest was very tasty. I especially like the olives and chumus served before our meal.
However, this time, I think that they were understaffed. The whole night took about 3.25 hours. When we arrived (after having a reservation) we weren't seated for 40 minutes or so. Then, it took a long time to order (we had to ask one of the waitstaff to send us back our waiter).
Overall, we all (4 people) had a great time. The atmosphere is always great and the food were grea4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Excellent andGreat food.
Excellent and a very unique ambiance.
For-special-occasions type restaurant.
Service was great. Background music was nice.
Note: Lighting is very dim. Takes a few minutes to get used to.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA must go!The food was amazing. You received a lot of food, but didn't feel stuffed. The little cubbies and booths separated by tapestries were very romantic. The belly dancers were great too and the ambiance was very authentic.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went to celebrateMy husband and I went to celebrate a milestone birthday -- I wanted atmosphere and there was plenty of it! Loved the textiles and Moroccan style decor - sexy even w/o the belly dancers who I loved as well. Our server was attentive (but not overly) and helpful w/ the menu. As far as the dishes we ordered, I would say they were solid but not memorable. The tuna tartare was good and the eggplant (main dish) was quite good. The restaurant was in the midst of changing their menu and the two dishes I would have ordered (both curries) were no longer available. Oh well.
We had a wonderful time and would definitely go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lamb dishes were amazing.The lamb dishes were amazing. Unique live entertainment occured during our meal courtesy of the belly dancers. The indian music playing in the background was a little odd though - the atmosphere could have been more authentic with moroccan music instead. But the food and atmosphere was amazing overall (although the dishes are quite pricey)!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant! Food wasGreat restaurant! Food was amazing, great ambiance, superb service! Would definitely visit again!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and service. BeverageGood food and service. Beverage prices were ridiculous: the water and tea cost over 20% of the bill (only sparkling water and a little bit of tea). Price gouging at its finest.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lamb was too fatty forThe lamb was too fatty for me but otherwise everything was fantastic.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!Had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The staff were well trained and everyone work in sync. Food was superb. Would recommend this. We took advantage of Restaurant Week in Boston. We would return for a special occasion.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal food, excellentPhenomenal food, excellent service, offset by loud atmosphere, most of the restaurant is cozy little booths, but the back room is cramped tables that feel like your on top of the table next to you.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is outstanding, serviceThe food is outstanding, service is courteous and friendly, and Saturday nights, there are very enthusiastic belly dancers! Definitely the place to go for a fun night out with friends. Just beware the belly dancers if you're on the shy side - they don't take no for an answer. ;)3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService for my wife and IService for my wife and I was very good. Food arrived at a good pace.
Ambiance was great; we were able to sit next to each other and shaded from other diners by by curtains. Both meals very good (short rib tagline and duck). A bit pricey, but overall a good experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and ambiance!Great for a date or small group of fun friends if you reserve a private curtained space. Fun atmosphere, live belly dancing, and amazing food! First time having Moroccan and I am hooked. Our waitress had great recommendations and was so friendly3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the best time!

Thank you!!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambiance was calming.The ambiance was calming. The food was scrumptious. It was also just the right quantity to satisfy and not waste. Our waiter was attentive while not being overbearing.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came up from RI and thisWe came up from RI and this was a great first time experiece. The atmoshpere, food and service were great and we'll be back again.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant tripFound Tangierino after jogging past it the other day.
A pleasantly cavernous journey precedes your arrival at a group nest or a mismatched chair and table. Multiple things are off the menu, but the things we had were a joy. The shrimp starter was substantial and flavoursome. I had the cod and risotto special that presented me with two pucks that in the light appeared exactly the same and selectively obscured by brushes of fresh arugula. Happily they presented two wonderfully cooked textures built to support the Fibonacci-esque inter-costal muscles of that rare cod.
Heather had the royal cous-cous, consisting of the old world cous cous bolstered with a tender joint of lamb and a well received spanicopita'd chunk of minced lamb.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
