I've been coming to Fes for many years, but had never gotten round to trying Moi Anan, as I was a bit dubious about a Thai restaurant in the middle of the medina. Wish I'd tried this place sooner! It would put a number of London high street 'Thai' restaurants to shame. The ingredients and curry pastes are clearly super fresh and cooked with love, and are good value considering some of the imported ingredients - lemongrass, galangal etc. We booked a table for 8, but rang to delay to 8:30, not turning up til 8:45 as we were running very late. Despite this being quite late, they still served us, and my guests and I had a delicious meal. Fez Cafe and NUHR could learn a thing or two about service from these guys! Please please make Moi Anan a stop on your visit, don't be put off with it being Thai, it's a great celebration of fresh organic local vegetables in a great central location. Xx

The food was honestly great. We were simply astonished by the waiter who practically threw the dishes onto our table, removed them without asking, and rolled his eyes when we did not want to tip him for his ungratifying service, the very same waiter who spoke in perfect English and French to his Western customers, with a smile on his face. We're pretty sure we could not had possibly offended him, except of course for being Chinese-looking, which seems to be a good reason to be spat, yelled and given the finger by complete strangers in this city. (We're unfortunate to have had all these in one day.)

这家泰餐吃的还行,服务员对客人有区别对待之嫌。对我们扔菜盘上桌子、不顾客人还在用餐开始收盘子、我们因此拒付小费时粗暴地扔找零翻白眼。同时对西人毕恭毕敬,微笑到位。

我们自问绝无冒犯他的可能,颇感失望。不会建议光顾这家店。

Walking throug Fez’ medina we bumped into the sign ‘great Thai food’. After many tajines it felt like a Nice joke eating Thai in maroc. Must say this ‘joke’ became a pleasant surprise serving us Nice pad Thai, accompanied with Some beers and local wine! Surely recommended!!!

The rooftop terrace is a joyous spot, watching sunset across Fes to the sound of the call to prayer. The food is exceptional. A taste of Thailand, and the prices are reasonable considering the import tax they have to pay for specialist ingredients. They kept apologising for the wait in service, but really it was perfectly fine. I think they tend to have a lot of American diners who expect to be fed immediately. We had a long chat with Mr Anan afterwards, who was one of the servers (usually he is the cook, but he has managed to train a sous chef after 4 years). He is a joy, and also a fine fashion designer. His enthusiasm for what he is doing is infectious. He fell in love with Fes, and decided to make his home here, but got bored with tagines everyday (as we had), so eventually opened his own restaurant, because it’s no fun just making Thai food for yourself. I have doubted the sincerity of most of the people in the Moroccan restaurants we have eaten in so far, but not Mr Anan. May he live long and prosper.

This review is consistent with others. The food is authentic, with burdock root and lemongrass in the yom young soup and glass noodles in the pad thai. You pay for the imports, I'm sure. A big soup, two mains, rice, a beer, and ginger lemon tea "thé maison" ran 405dh. Not cheap but if you've been eating delicious tagines for a few weeks, it's a fun choice. Signage is pretty good in the surrounding streets but you will probably get hassled by teens trying to redirect you to other restos. There's a short alley.
Also, we made the reservation for right at 1900, when they open for dinner. While the kitchen was moving fast, the restaurant filled quickly and there was only a single very good host/server, so while our order was in first and we got our food fast, others waited a good five to ten minutes after we had our dishes to get theirs.
They take Visa. A refreshing change, too.
