The quality of food is very good if you want to eat Arabic or Moroccan food, Rotana is the best place. The service is very good and the stuff are friendly. You can enjoy the Arabic songs and see Arabic TV. I really recommend you to give it a try.

I eat out a lot. This was one of the worst dining experiences ever. I ordered the Chicken Tagine You would expect a North African influence of spices, taste and a visual delight. I got roast chicken in a tagine with a sauce made of (obvious) gravy granules with pitted tinned olives chucked in it. For starters we ordered feta... More

Really enjoyed our dinner at Rotana! It was a friends birthday and we brought our own bubbles and red wine which is great. We shared lots of starters (perhaps too many!) but they were all lovely, nothing was left! I ordered the mix grill which was lovely and the tagines and cous cous royals went down a treat around the... More

I haven’t eaten Moroccan food often so I tried the Tagine, with lamb. It was extremely good. Really good and different. The restaurant is a bring your own for booze and luckily there is an off licence over the road. Really good and different.
