The Harira (lentil soup) is outstanding, especially considering it is vegan.

The food was tasty. A nice change of pace than "typical american" fare.
The dining room was unique as the perimeter of the room was low lounges with 16" tables to be shared with 2 people. Those tables weren't sufficient to hold the plates of food.
Recommendation, if people are coming for a meal, don't sit them around the perimeter with the low tables, put them in a full size table.
In hindsight, I should have asked to be moved.

We made a reservation through open table but the Kasbah was closed on the date of our reservation date. Open table accepted our reservation but the restaurant was closed. not sure who was at fault Open table or the restaurant but it was disappointing to say the least. We were all excited about trying an new restaurant. Luckily Tapa the World was right next to Kasbah and we were able to eat there.

Loved this restaurant and the vegan options! Service was a little slow and inconsistent but it appeared there was only a couple people working and very busy. Will try again.

The food was very good. I liked the lamb kabob a lot. I also had a caipirinha which was great. The only issue we had was with the noise. It was very loud!

We were fortunate enough to be seated on the cushions along the side. It took me back to my experience overnight in a Berber tent in Morocco. It was really nice and my husband and I enjoyed it. BUT, this would not have been good for more than two people or if you had a ton of food delivered at once.

Service was a bit slow at first, they seemed to be under-staffed, but we weren't in a hurry, so it was no big deal to us. We ordered the mezza platter first. It took awhile to come out, but it was well worth the wait. We then ordered a grilled flatbread and chicken kabob. Again, they took a bit, but OMG - delicious! The flatbread came out first. It was loaded with meat and grilled onions. I could have done with a bit more spinach, but I enjoyed it immensely. A few minutes after we finished it, the kabob came out. The chicken was seriously some of the moistest chicken I have ever had. It was really good! We then ordered dessert - the baklava was okay, but not my favorite in the Sacramento-area.

Also, they have a belly-dancer. If you are into being entertained while you eat, that could be for you. For me - I hated it. She was lovely and quite a good dancer, but I do not like to be entertained by musicians or dancers while I eat, so I found it annoying.

Would definitely go again, but only if I can sit on the cushions. The tables are stuck in the middle and just didn't appeal to me.

Service was a bit casual and haphazard; for example, main course came out of kitchen before purported appetizer. However, food was delicious.

We had a wonderful experience for valentines day.
Their optional vegan menu is extensive and delicious. We started with their “Now and Then” cocktail, light, delicate and beautiful. Next, we shared their Mezza platter-Lovely presentation, and their hummus, baba ghanouj, and tabouleh were perfect! We then had the Vegan Shushbarak-house made dumplings in an amazing tahini broth, then ended the evening with Turkish coffee and heavenly baklava. This was our first time at this restaurant, and we’re already making arrangements to go back! 😋

No belly dancing. Dirty. Food was ok. They asked during the reservation process if it was for a birthday, which it was, however, no mention of it when we arrived. Also, the seating was awkward; we sat with 2 couples facing us while we ate as they sat against the wall. Not pleasant.

I arrived early due to Paratransit. I was seated at a table to accommodate my wheelchair. The waitress accidentally spilled ice water over me and the table. It was quickly wiped up, but I was still wet. I ordered hummus and pita bread. It was very good. The pita bread was fresh and warm. My friend arrived. We ordered from the “Dine in Sacramento “ menu. I ordered the Shakriyeh - a tangy yogurt broth from sheep’s milk made with meatballs, chickpeas, and toasted almonds. Topped with herbs. For my entree grilled and marinated lamb chops drizzled with a pomegranate honey served with lamb and beef rice “stuffing” and Lebanese yogurt. Dessert consisted of a Almond Brioche - almond, honey & orange blossom in phyllo pastry. The restaurant looks like it had been refurbished and they have an outside area for those who enjoy a hookah smoke. They are a little difficult to find, but they are across from the Tapa the World restaurant.

took a chance at a new restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised at the flavors and portions of the 3 course meal. Middle eastern flavors with vegan and meat options. We want to go back and try other dishes soon.

I brought members of my foodie group to enjoy the dine downtown menu. A few started with cocktails and were impressed with the size of the drinks. The soups were full of flavor and filling. The lamb entree was so very tender and the flatbread option was huge. Both desserts were beautifully presented and as tasty as they looked. I particularly like the nut pastry which was like baklava. I was the only member to have eaten here before, but now there are 6 more fans.

We’ve enjoyed coming here for date nights for almost 3 years. The food is great and they have enough options for my partner who is vegan. The person who sat us this time was a bit more abrupt than I prefer but otherwise great service as always.

Very overrated. Outside of ambience food was bland and not cooked well at all. Little to no flavor and rubbery kebabs which made the meal feel rebates or microwaved

I suggested Kasbah lounge to my colleagues as a year end potluck. We were 14 of them and each and everyone absolutely fell in love with food and ambience. I took the lunch special menu , with Harira soup, Chicken Kebob and Kunfeh. the texture and taste was amazing tangy and juicy as I like it to be.

Large portions, great taste on all dishes ordered, but the service was poor. I realize that we had a large party, but we had to replenish our own waters various times and a 20% gratuity was included. WAY too much for the level of service we received. Will come back for the food and with a party size smaller so we don't get auto tip included.

The food service and atmosphere is awesome. It’s dark and warm, with delicious foods and the service was amazing- I think each server came over to talk to us, as well as the owner. Suggestions were made based on our food preferences with care and considerations. Special cocktails were made. I just really love coming here.
