Admittedly - this place has been hit or miss over the past few years. They use to have a bizarre menu and pretty watery drinks, but the place has come to light as of late with some tasty authentic Morrocan dishes and a heavier pour on the drinks. Service has been upgraded as well. Worth a night out - but make a booking if the city is busy !

I went here on a Friday night and things were certainly happening, but not for our party of five. There a restaurant downstairs and a bar/ lounge on the second floors and roof. The service was extremely slow, the drinks were expensive (75 for a mojito), and there was not an empty seat in sight.
The decor is pretty nice. It is Middle Eastern themed with plenty of dark blue tile and gold. And you can smoke shisa for 150 RMB. The staff speak English, but it's hard to make yourself heard over the music and fifty other people crammed around the bar.
There are fire pits on the rood and I imagine it's quite cozy when it's not windy. I didn't have a good time here, but a lot of people looked like they were having a blast. The crowd ranges from people in their early twenties to business men in suits in their forties/ fifties. I might go back for their Ladies' night on Thursdays.
