Very Nice Food. We didn’t realise they didn’t serve drink until we arrived but it was simple to pop out, buy our own and bring it back to the restaurant

Good food although their hot options were rather mild,, great service. They could make it more clear on their website that they do not sell alcohol so the diners are not surprised on arrival.

We hadn't finished eating our starters when the mains where put on our table without even asking us if we wanted them at the same time. Be careful with Service Charge, under the consumers right Act, the service charge has to be very clear. The piece of paper with the menu that we were given had the service charge in such small print that you could hardly read it. It seemed to us it was 10% however when we got the bill they charged us 15%, which is too much in our opinion. Having it printed so small in the menu so it is not clear and you can't read it made us doubt about the intentions.

We’d never eaten Moroccan food before but we certainly shall again. Everything from the falafel to the tagines was full of flavour - no bland chicken or potatoes, for example - yet was not spicy. The only thing that surprised us was that our lamb and chicken tagines were brought to our table before we had finished our starters. But we’re not complaining when we had a flavourful meal and the staff were so polite and helpful. We’ll be back.

This place is just not worth the visit! We have now tried it twice as we thought it might just be teething problems the first time we visited. Essentially the food is really not great at all! The service isn’t bad, but I don’t go out to enjoy the service, I go for good food, and there just isn’t any here. So make your booking at your own peril, as this place is just sub standard in the food department.

1st dining out with a friend post lockdown.
Easy to book on line but plenty spaces on a week day for lunch.
The waiter was wearing a face mask but that was not covering his nose.
The menu was slightly different from their website and the food prices slightly higher.
There is an prion in the menu for fish with rice or vegetables - we received fish and salad and were told that this is vegetables. A bit lame, given the fact that we ordered a separate big salad to have with our fish and vegetables.
Splitting the bill was again a funny story as the guy who served us was unable to work it out properly.
Their lemonade is amazing.
All in all not a great experience but maybe will try again with different food from their menu.

Very tasty food, including complementary dips and fried flat breads, plus all the dishes you'd expect from this type of cuisine - halloumi, houmous, tagines and moussakka. Pleasant, attentive service. A great new addition to Woking.

The food was lovely, we struggled to decide which starters to opt for, and ended up with 5 between 4 hungry adults. Main course was really lovely and didn't feel like it was particularly unhealthy like I normally do when I eat out. Bring your own bottle helps to keep it cost effective which was the reason for choosing to go in the first place. Will definitely return!

Nice quality food and service. Had not registered it’s bring your own booze so needed to nip out to get our wine but therefore represented great value.

This is a great place- food is excellent value and tastes amazing.
You need to bring your own booze but they are accomodating and bring glasses and ice buckets etc....
They have a seating area out the front where you can try a shisha pipe which will probably be nice in the summer.

The best lamb tagine I’ve ever eaten. Everyone enjoyed the food, the friendly, helpful service and the attractive environment. We sat at a round table which is really nice for a group. I’ll definitely be going again.

Great friendly hospitality and the food was delicious and fresh. Its a “bring your own bottle” so makes it good value too as no corkage charge. We will definitely be back. So nice to have the option to eat somewhere In Woking that isnt part of a chain and has a family run vibe
