About

“Where you might least expect it, on Crown Hill, a hidden oasis of sensuous Moroccan ambiance and cuisine waits behind dusky peach walls. At Kasbah, the five-course D'yaffa feast is one of the city's best dining values. Your hands will be washed at the beginning, and then sprinkled with rosewater as the feast winds down.” Seattle PI

The scene
Low couches, embroidered leather cushions, layered carpets and jewel-toned hanging lamps: This dining room feels a long way from Seattle. Two spacious dining areas allow for a choice between luxuriant privacy or a prime seat during one of the belly dance shows.

We've been to Kasbah many times, and it's always delicious and fun. The owner cares very much about providing a great dining experience for his guests.

We have eaten here many times, but it has been several years since our last visit. In the interim, they have become a hookah lounge. The fabrics on the wall have absorbed the smell. And, the small things that used to make eating here an experience are gone, like the rose water hand wash and the huge basket of bread that was passed from table to table. And, the B'stilla didn't have powdered sugar, as it always has before. The food was good. It just wasn't the experience that it had been before.

It was a great experience overall, but be forewarned that they require you to order the most expensive dinner if going during a time when you earn 1000 points. I didn't know restaurants ever made you order something specifically just by booking through open table. I think they should clearly state that so you're not surprised like we were.

We love Kasbah. We always order at least two pots of tea, it's so delicious, and every meal has been wonderful. I like that you can now customize the number of courses too. The flavors are as rich as the atmosphere, the staff is always friendly and great with our girls, even when they decided to get up and dance to the music between courses.

Kasbah was a truly incredible experience! The atmosphere was great, our waiter was wonderful - helpful, kind, patient, and the food was out of this world. I went on a date here with my boyfriend and we did the four course meal (for an extremely modest price! It was around $27 or so.) - the appetizer with phyllo dough was amazing, the eggplant salad was amazing, and the roast lamb with saffron rice was amazing. And I didn't even get to the most outstanding dish yet - the Hen and Lemon. Now I'm not a huge chicken person in general - I like it fine, but it's not my go to. But we asked the waiter for recommendations and he immediately suggested the Hen and Lemon, so we went for it - and oh my gosh, the flavors and spices melding together, the way the meat fell apart...it is a must get!

I you haven't tried Morrocan food, do it and this is the place. Lovely atmosphere and the food is delicious. Fear not if you are not a spice fan! I would describe Morrocan fare as savory. Plus, your server can tell you all about the dishes that they offer. Kasbah is a neighborhood gem!

My son and I each had the 4 course dinner on Christmas night. The entrees were the highlight of the meal: lamb t'faya tagine and the hen with lemon and olives. The lamb was falling off the bone, and the sauce was sweet and savoy. The hen was equally delicious. Sadly, the soup was served warm -and since I had trouble getting the attention of the server, I didn't want to waste time sending it back to be heated. There were a few other problems with the service: they tried to serve us chicken bastilla twice and we were seated in a strange location - right behind the cashier in what seemed to be a small space near the bar. I was surprised about this and wonder if "Open Table" diners are given the worst table available. The salad and chicken bastilla were both tasty but by the time we finished eating the soup, salad and appetizer - we were pretty full! If I were to return, I would order off the a la carte menu.

The restaurant is decorated with beautiful rugs, brass tray table tops and pillows. It might be a fun place to come to with a crowd. The price was very reasonable.

We visited this place on Christmas Eve and it was a refreshing alternative to traditional Christmas food. I grew up on Mediterranean cuisine so roasted eggplant, pepper and tomato flavors taste like family holiday to me a lot more than a turkey. We went with 3 course dinner option which was more than enough food. Apricot chicken tagine was pretty good but I liked Mrouzia (lamb) better; both dishes were super flavorful and the meat was fall-off-the-bone tender. Absolutely LOVED the Trio of Salads and they had a few exotic Moroccan wine options - red paired absolutely perfect with my lamb. Atmosphere was very intimate and dim (to my liking), I plan to go back to Kasbah - there are just too many dishes to try out in one outing.

Our first visit to Kasbah and the food was delicious and unique - we shared the Couscous T'Faya (sweet with a ginger saffron sauce) and the Kefta Tagine (meatballs with a rich sauce) both excellent. We loved the atmosphere and would definitely go again. The service was great and unobtrusive We highly recommend this restaurant.

Tonight, I took hubby out for a quiet romantic dinner. We both had heard of Kasbah Moroccan restaurant; yet neither of us had been to it. Our server was truly amazing and friendly. She explained each dish she brought out. The environment very cozy and intimate. The food very delicious. We decided to do the D'YAFFA FEAST and we were not disappointed. The soup and salad was wonderful. I had the Chicken & Apricot entree and the meat was quite tender and sauce delightful. My hubby had the Fish Sharmoula Tagine and he was more than happy with it. We will come again, bringing friends and see the belly dancing.

We tried almost all their dishes and they always satisfy. Every bite is delicious and we almost always have leftovers to enjoy another day. Try their 3, 4, or 5 course dinners and choose from a variety of dishes.

One of our friends loved their Harira soup as much as we did, but he ordered a second serving, then demanded a third one (we were thinking... more food for us!)

The honey chicken with prunes sounds funny, but it is another 5 star. When we have a large group of friends, we order at least two of the honey chicken with prunes and Fish Sharmoula Tagine which is another favorite one. Least favorite dish but still good is the Kefta Tagine, a sautéed meat balls in garlic tomato sauce topped with poached egg. It just seems that meat balls belongs to an Italian dish and not Moroccan, that's just my opinion. You will have to try it and decide for yourself.

If you want to see the belly dancer, make a reservation and visit them on Friday or Saturday. Their happy hour prices are unbeatable. I will be happy to pay extra to get the Lamb Bastilla substituted. The owner is accommodating and courteous. The waitress (daughter of owner) is great and always makes you feel welcome. Extra Amiga Debbie Cookies for her!

If I were to give the Lamb Bastilla its own rating, it will be a 6 stars. Overall, Four and a half stars (when are they allowing the 1/2 stars?). What will make a 5 star? I think the bread could be changed to a pita or naan style to go with their amazing trio salad. Just suggesting...

Always a fun place to visit. We would go more often if we lived closer. For now, we try to go once a month or more and when we have out of town guests.

Thanks to a friend who invited me to a birthday celebration at Kasbah because it is now many of my friends favorite place to eat.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The ambiance was great and the food delicious. They have a belly dancer show which was fun, and the staff is very friendly. My only letdown is that you have to come back late night after hours to enjoy the hooka lounge. But that is probably not their fault due to the smoking laws in Seattle, but you can still do this with some planning

I have never had Moroccan food before, so I didn't know what to expect. Wanting to try new ethnic foods, I thought this restaurant would be something new and different. I have to say that my husband and I were pleasantly pleased with all of the food that we had at the Kasbah. They serve the dinner in 4 courses, and each course was very good. We plan to go back and try some other dishes in the future.

The food is delicious, beautifully presented on Moroccan dishes from a factory in Fez, and such a wonderful memory of my recent trip to Morocco. The cookies at the end of the meal are crispy and just like the ones from the carts in Marrakesh or served with mint tea on the Ryad patios. I enjoyed every bite of my meal!

My husband and I reserved a table at this restaurant for Valentine's Day. The menu was a 5 course feast with a choice of entree. Each course was delicious - seafood soup, a trio of salads, a lamb appetizer - then the entrees, I had cornish hen in a sauce of preserved lemons and olives (excellent!). My husband had lamb shank with eggplant. Even the dessert was special - a chocolate mousse cake. And with that we got a floor show with a wonderful belly dancer. A great evening! We will be sure to return to the restaurant even on an ordinary night out in the future.
