It was a rainy day in Valentine’s day! The place was cozy with the perfect Ambience for the ocasión, they bring you the food in a moderate time, the amount of food it’s perfect to share and the Mixed of flavors are amazing!
The ambience was so good with middle eastern tuns that go perfect with the type of food you are eating, they have also a belly dancer that goes from table to table and put a good show, that was pretty cool!

Food and drinks were amazing. Only ding was that our waitress ignored us the whole night. I had to call or physically walk up to her to get any service. Great restaurant but this particular waitress gave no service, especially when it was a relative slow night. Will go back again.

It was a little noisy but not too bad. They make allowance for vegans which is a big plus.

Great place with wonderful food and ambiance that is quite romantic and cozy, especially if seated on the wall seats with cushions. Service was fast and our server was very pleasant. The only disappointment of the evening was that the belly dancers were not there during our visit (7-8:20ish) and we were told that they can show up around 9 pm or later as they sort of have their own schedule.

We are big fans of Kasbah. We have found them to have consistently delicious food. They are especially good with seasonings. They represent a broad spectrum of Middle Eastern food. For the DineDowntown week they always add something very special to the menu. It might be a good idea to come close to the time they open because they can be very busy. And they can stay busy even late night. The atmosphere is incredibly relaxing and that vibe sets the tone for enjoying and not rushing through meals.

My first time here after being at Tapa the World many times and it's just as good. I think it might be even a little bit nicer looking on this side. The food was really good and people nice.

Turkish coffee was a nice end to our meal and helpful for the 5 hour drive after dinner. We will be back!!!

Excellent food. I really appreciated how many vegan options there were. The food was incredibly fresh and flavorful. The atmosphere was unique. Once it got a little busier the service had gotten a little lax but it wasnt something that would prevent me from eating here again. I was very impressed.

I reserved a table for a double birthday celebration of my friends. We were seated promptly. The place was lively. There was a belly dancer performing which was entertaining. They serve Mediterranean food which is very good and tasty and reasonably priced. My only disappointment is that the service was not consistent. One of the server was very friendly engaging and attentive but the other one was totally opposite.

Exotic ambiance and menu is very Mediterranean. Not the place if you're in the mood for old-fashioned American comfort food. But food was excellent and the atmosphere is romantic, so try this place if you want something a little different. Wine is very reasonably priced during the happy hour, which, in this case, is defined as 5 - 7 p.m.

There were belly dancers performing, which was wonderful- and the reason we went was to see our friend perform. Because we were seated over in the corner, we had very little attention from the server to ask for a drink refill or get our bill. It was slow service as if we were a little forgotten over in the corner. We waited for the bill forever, and finally went to look for the server to pay our bill and leave after everything had ended and most of the other patrons were gone.

Warm evening, but not too hot, so perfect to sit outside (inside was quite cold). Happy Hour prices every evening was a nice option. We had meatballs, spicy chicken wings(sweet & hot— too much for my friend, but r st of us enjoyed) and appetizer platter. Pitcher of sangria was nice treat

Wow! How was this only my first visit here? What a great spot! The chicken wings and lamb kebabs were both amazing! The schwarma and flatbread were tasty but best not ordered together since they were very similar. Interesting selection of wines, good beer on tap, and excellent desserts. The chocolate torte was to die for! We will be back!

Total delight! The restaurant photo I saw was of tables around the bar making me a bit nervous as I was taking teenagers with me. To my amazement, the regular seating was part routine, part novel. Only thing missing amud a unique ambiance were the belly dancers!. Food was very, very good. Four of us at the table and we could not find anything other than delicious with a touch of unique!

Downside was the waitress made too many errors on the order. In fact, one appetizer never did get served. Although she offered it for free since we had already finished our meal, I suspect it too would have been great had it been served before the meal.

Highly recommend the stuffed dates, lamb chops and chicken kabob.

I'm going again, but not when they are so busy . . .
