First, we went in and there was only one other party eating. (Not a good sign.) It definitely didn't make for a festive atmosphere. Second, the heat was turned down so low (in the middle of a cold December) that both us and the other people were complaining to the waitress. She told us she turned up the heat, but it never got warmer. In terms of the food, the pita was cold and seemed store-bought. I will give it to them that the hummus was good. However, our entrees were lukewarm, and the meat was tough and chewy. The best thing about the entire meal was the mint tea. (It was also the only thing that was hot!) Spare yourself and spend your money elsewhere.

It was a great dining experience. I was a little shocked at how empty the restaurant was on a Friday night though. The pre fix menu provided a good variety, but I just didn't care of the chicken pastry with the cinnamon sugar on top. It was a weird combination. I think it would have been better with a larger group of people.

It's been over 10 years since I had my first dinner at Casablanca. It was easily a memorable experience, far removed from most Main Line dining. In the last 10 years very little has changed, though it never feels old or tired. What to expect? A 7 course feast that will leave you stuffed, if you can actually eat your way to the end. You start off with a [select]ion of dips and marinated vegetables, all perfect to get you off to a drooling start. These are followed by my favorite dish, phylo dough filled with egg, chicken and nuts covered in cinammon and sugar. You then get a choice of entrees for courses 3 and 4. If you have 4+ people you can choose more than one dish for each course. The rabbit, lamb with honey and almonds, and the spicy chicken are all great, though sometimes overcooked. Now that you're completely full, you'll get a huge plate of cous cous topped with yummy delights followed by various ripe fruits, tiny baklavas and a little sweet tea. And the best part is, you'll be eating everything with your hands. A host will come by before you eat with a basin and warm water kettle for washing. You'll also be given giant towels to drape over your legs and a never ending supply of pita bread. The drinks list is distinctly morrocan with some interesting non-grape wines and a fairly boring [select]ion of bland lagers. Prices are on the high side, but you do get some entertainment during the bountiful meal. A belly dancer (or two) will put on a little show and ask diners to get up and dance with her (or him - once a month).

this is probably the best Moroccan resturant in Philadelphia.
