I miss when the place was separated between two buildings and had more of a harem feel. I also miss the service and the family actually being there to supervise. It's not the same. The food is alright.

Fun night at Casablanca. Had not been in years.. fun to go with large group and BYOB. Service above average and friendly. Soup and appetizers were lovely but entrees were average. Just not enough flavor. I would go again bc the ambiance and overall atmosphere is great. Maybe ask for a bit more spice to your dish?

We were invited here for a private party. The food and service were very good. be prepared to sit on the floor or on the sofas. The lentil soup was outstanding.

The food and service were excellent! I didn't expect to like it much when my son told me it was Moroccan and don't usually like a "minimum price" but it was very good and unusual food. The rack of lamb was amazing and the pickled carrots off the charts.

I always get the lamb brochettes. For some reason Im always satisfied. They are always consistent. The beef pie with powdered sugar is awesome. I just wish I didn't have to share!

We have lived in Kailua 20 years, before that we lived in Kaneohe. I CAN'T BELIEVE why we never had the Casablanca Experience until 2 nights ago, because they have been there forever. I never ever expected food that was so delicious and flavors that I truly experienced was a first (made it even better). I refer to it as... More

We had an enjoyable time with another couple. Seating is low to the ground, the men sat on low bean bags. It is a 5 course meal and you are charge according to what entrée you choose. The lamb chops were very good. Loved the appetizers and each course. It's a BYOB restaurant.

Dined with friends, family and as a couple. Great atmosphere, polite wait staff and the owner Mohamid is a blessing in Kailua, to bring the taste of Morocco. 5 stars to you Casablanca.

I live in Kailua, Hawaii and this was my first visit to Casablanca restaurant. I had read several reviews of this restaurant prior to going, and the reviews seemed to be either very bad or very good - no "in the middle." I feel this restaurant was somewhat above average, not bad, but not terrific either. The waitress and waiter... More

I needed a different dining experience. Casablanca offered this. Dining there is unique to the area. Having spent time in Turkey, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at this morrocon restaurant. It brought back fond memories. When in Kailua, you must visit this place once during your trip. It's an experience that gives you a break from... More
