Service ok, atmosphere ok but food lacks effort. The Moroccan targine chicken tasted like flavourless packet food. Chicken was tasteless and rest was a flavouress watery stew. Staff were indifferent to feedback as if they had heard it all before. This may be the problem...More

Lovely food and service every time, the staff are delightful and the food is superb. Had the fish which was the perfect amount of chilli on a cold Canberra night. Paired with a fantastic Shiraz from the wine specials.

A group of six friends celebrated 2 birthdays. Four of us had the $39 banquet which had a good variety of various Mediterranian dishes.I would have liked taboule included. Everybody enjoyed their meal and the atmosphere. The service was very good worth a return visit

We went for dinner on a cool Canberra night. We had the banquet which gives you a three course meal - dips, warm entrees and main. Everything was tasty and we had plenty of food. We even stretched ourselves and shared a dessert. Highly recommended.
