Kous Kous Moroccan Bistro, which can be found in San Diego, California, is a restaurant that attempts to bring a little bit of the taste and culture of Morocco to the West Coast. The appetizers start the customers on their journey, as the unique flavors of the harira soup with lentils and the tomato and cucumber Moroccan salad come to the fore. As the name suggests, you have to try the couscous at Kous Kous Moroccan Bistro, and you can join it with chicken or lamb.
Once you get to the main course at Kous Kous Moroccan Bistro, you can try a dish like the kefta meatball or the fassi lamb. You can also sample something from the grill, like the kabobs with chicken or shrimp.
We had a great dinner. We chose "Feast 2" and had more-than-enough food. The chicken tangine was a favorite, as were all of the appetizer choices. Dessert was liquor-covered oranges and strawberries that were perfect after a large meal. We chose a Moroccan white wine which was lovely. The ambiance was intimate and the noise level was not bothersome. The owner checked on our satisfaction a couple of times and explained his method of preserving lemons. The wait staff was attentive and warm. Definitely will go back again.
We had a good time at Kous Kous. The food was good. The only drawbacks were that the table was kind of small for 4 and that we waited quite a long time before we got the food...
Kous Kous has never disappointed with their delicious, flavorful, mouth watering chicken tajin. I just wish their food service didn't take SO long. Other than that, totally worth the wait ;).
First time visit and a long time since having Moroccan food. Excellent food and all enjoyed their choices. The best part , it is in the "hood". We will be back.
Great as usual! Very informative service person and of course the food was absolutely wonderful. Our group of 8 were all very pleased.
We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated promptly and welcomed warmly by the restaurant owner. Our wait was very warm and attentative and put great energy into ensuring our needs were met. He informed us about menu choices and the nights specials.
I loved the cocktail list this place sports on the menu. We both hard a BOGART which was a drink of rum, lemon and muddered mint leave. Paired great with the food. Lamb shank tagine and the moroccan appetizers.
Staff was extremely pleasant, seating us in a location we chose (although the whole party had not yet arrived), and taking our order without waiting for the others. We enjoyed tasty appetizers (and wine, of course). As someone who knows (and prepares) Moroccan food, I give their lamb tagine a superior rating. The bstila, although not served in the traditional way, was tasty. All in all, we can't wait to return with other family members and friends. Parking is very convenient, too. The lot just next door is less expensive than the one farther north near the corner.
Relaxing atmosphere. Very comfortable. Great ambience. Interesting authentic very tasty food.
Only place I know to get good Moroccan food and merguez. Has a couple of good red wines, very limited white choices, none appealing unless you like fruity wines. Bring your own. Pleasant atmosphere, subdued and fabrics muffle the sound.
I was looking for a great place to go for date night with my wife. I must have driven pass kous kous thousands of time and never noticed what a cute place it is. Our dinner was around 5:30 which allowed us to get a couple of items of the happy hour menu. The service was great. They talked us through each item we were thinking about ordering, the good was great and the place is extremely cute and cozy.
