I would have been very glad if the excellent and very entertaining belly dancer had been able to start a little earlier. There were three tables of dining guests at 6:30 pm when I was there, and they were all (including my party) about ready to leave by the time the dancer finally came out.

Really wonderful place...the dancing was top notch. They also have a belly dancing school in addition to the restaurant. The decor was beautiful and authentic. The owners and staff were professional and warm. We really enjoyed the food. The Maza plate was delicious and stunning to look at. You could tell that there was skill in the kitchen. It's a very entertaining evening.

this is a great restaurant, based on previous experience. However, the expiration date for my groupon was December 8, and the restaurant wasn't open December 5, 6, 7, or 8. the restaurant apologized, but they are never open Monday through Thursday, and said Groupon is the one who made the mistake. I couldn't even use my Groupon, and wasted my money.

A real delight to be a guest at this wonderful "hidden" (in plain sight) gem. Everyone treated us so graciously and the food was absolutely divine. We look forward to our next visit.

Dinner can be very slow when there is a show, but if you love bellydance and live music, the evening will be a lot of fun. Just be sure you don't mind waiting for your food. Relax and enjoy the show with a glass of wine and food will come.

Literally the worst food we've ever eaten. Very overpriced even for San Francisco. Even the hummus was bland and tasteless. Would not recommend this groupon to anyone.

Had 7:30 reservations. Arrived at 7:55 to an unappetizing buffet. Food was luke warm, empty bins... obviously they were done putting out food. People were very friendly, waitress etc. Dancing was good and loved the band. Ambience very nice!

only a couple tables in the place each time we went. the most recent visit was eventful because there was a live band with 10 belly dancers in the line up. set menu wasnt so bad, though choices in appetizers would have been nice... and there was a "buffet" that never existed. wish the show would have started earlier so we could have watched more than two dancers... all in all good food, service ok(seems inexperienced), and nice atmosphere. family oriented it seems :)
