Pasha Land had two padlocks on the doors and was closed despite Open Table confirming my reservation and continuing to post availability of reservations. Also, Pasha Land was listed as a recommended local favorite dining establishment on the same day as I made the reservation even though it was no longer open. It was very disappointing to arrive at the restaurant and find it closed!

I made my reservation, but when we arrived the place was closed!

The appetizers of eggplant and hummus was outstanding. The Moroccan dishes were disappointing, even though they cannot serve the food in a Tagine it lacked the Moroccan spices and the combination of ingredients that you find in Morocco.

A hidden authentic Moroccan gem of a restaurant in the suburb of Maryland. This place has everything including the decors, music, belly dancers, specially poured mint tea Moroccan style and kind owner who comes by to talk to you. The lamb dishes here are delicious and inexpensive. A nice place for an exotic dining with your special guests.

We enjoyed our meal very much. We each had lamb that was cooked perfectly and we were pleasantly surprised by the Moroccan red wine that we had with our meal!

I would recommend Pasha Land to anyone who's looking for a great atmosphere and delicious dessert. The almond creme cake is to die for!

Food was delicious, owner was kind and present, and there was live music and a belly dancer! The prices were very reasonable which is good because there are a lot more dishes I want to try there.

One of our favorites; this quaint restaurant is traditionally decorated (not tacky). Live music and belly dancing (frequently). The Food is fantastic (my wife is Moroccan; and I we are tough critics). Family owned and ran; Ahmed Zouine (owner) and his wife and kids are warm, inviting, fun and informative. They frequently make amazing pastry specials which are 100% authentic, 1000% delicious. Please please support this family owned small business. They cater large events as well...would make a great company catered event or an amazing wedding catering service.

Top notch; you will agree. Visit and enjoy!

On a Thursday night our group of four were among only a few diners, so noise was nearly non-existent and service was impeccable. Two of us had lamb chops, one had lamb cous-cous, and the other chicken kabob. All were wonderful, as were the humi chicken, humi lamb, and lentil soup. The taste of cardamom is prominent in the cappuccino, so don't expect Starbucks. Overall, highly recommended.

Had a lovely dinner. Service was great. Food was exceptional, as always. Ambiance is fun. Enjoyed the music by live performers, and the belly dancer which started shortly before we left.

PashaLand is one of my son and my favorite restaurants for dinner out. The food is delicious - and well presented. There is clear pride in the dishes they do. Waitstaff is friendly and helpful. Owner is very welcoming and warm.

Excellent food. Service was good, but only had one person who was waiter and bartender, so a little slow.

A really fun evening. Food was excellent, service was outstanding, and the restaurant pours a full glass of wine. The Moroccan coffee was a great after dinner treat along with the delicious Baklava.

There was entertainment that set the mood - the elder members of this family restaurant played music through most of the evening. A performance by the belly dancer is a regular Saturday night event.

The owner comes around to greet each of the patrons. The waiter was very attentive and courteous.

My wife and I enjoy this restaurant for an enjoyable date night out. We have always had a great meal here.

Food was ok; service was very slow; house wines; not much choice of wines; entertainment was good.

Went here with a friend and our three teenagers. The food was outstanding. My one complaint is that I made a reservation on Open Table about 3 hours prior to coming. There were plenty of time slots available. When I got to the restaurant they told me that they didn't have my reservation because I made it "after 3 pm". The owner said he "told Open Table not to accept reservations after that time". Sounds like a problem between OT and the restaurant - but not my problem! He seated us anyway and there remained plenty of open tables throughout the evening.

The belly dancer is a little in-your-face aggressive. I'd definitely go back for the food but maybe at a time when there is no belly dancing!
