Morocco’s Restaurant Review
Located in the heart of Mountain View, Morocco’s restaurant offers an exotic Moroccan culinary experience. We recently had a gals night out at this place. Food is good but the highlight is ambience, belly dancing and the moroccan culture experience.
Here is the glimpse of our night out 🙂 Apart from the gallery other pics are displayed below the gallery!
The atmosphere is fantastic. It sets you in a faraway place with Moroccan music, and a tent like interior.
The Moroccan style decorations were really pretty, colorful mozaic pattern lamps and all. We came in during the night so it was pretty romantic. They had candles too and cute little flower pots on the tables. Service was really good. Knowing that it was our first time in a Moroccan restaurant, Chef Jay, the owner explained a lot about the menu for us.
Now to the best part: The Food & Drinks!!!
Food was similarly high-quality and flavorful. But it is not exceptional 🙂 We did family style menu but i would suggest taking A la carte
Their wine list is pretty substantial, especially if you are a wine club member. We had the Sangria pitcher which was good too.
One thing you must have is the Moroccon Hot Mint Tea. It’s an experience
Shrimp Pil pil is an appetizer and the restaurant claimed that this is one of the best in their menu. Indeed, our expectation didn’t fail us. The shrimps were really fresh and good!!! Definitely a must-order when you visit the place.

Couscous was my first taste of couscous so, I honestly can’t tell if it’s a good couscous or not, but, it was really delicious!
A cracked wheat semolina, couscous is known as Moroccan Pasta. They use a 100 years old recipe taking our couscous through a three step steaming process which takes about 3 hours to prepare.
We had the lamb and chicken tangine which was amazingly flavorful. Tangine is a dish from North Africa that is named after the special earthenware pot in which it is cooked.
Typically, a tagine is a rich stew of meat, which can include beef, chicken, fish, or lamb, and most often also includes vegetables or fruit. Vegetarian versions of this stew can be made.
The dessert menu includes dessert briwatts with a choice of sweet fillings; we opted for the special chef’s cake of the week. For 2 years in a row we have celebrated Ritesh’s Birthday at Morocco’s
In the middle of the meal, we saw a belly dancer inside the restaurant! There is some kind of live entertainment every night, and happy hour lasts from 5-7, so this place sure knows how to party!
Price wise, I wouldn’t say that it is cheap. Average cost for the main course is around $12-$20, while all appetizers are around $10.50.
This place has it all- good service, good food, good ambiance 🙂
