This fairly new restaurant (august 2014) is still finding its way, but off to a great start. The food is very tasty. We tried two tangines. The lamb Kofta with carrots, olives, potatoes was very good, but the Marin beef cheek tangine was exceptional. Terrine...More

We had a very good meal with very good service. We ordered too much but there were many dishes we wanted to try. We started with the Moroccan fish stew ($5) that was intensely flavorful. Our server’s assistant forgot to bring us spoons so we...More

We've eaten in every Moroccan restaurant in the Bay Area over the last 35 yrs. In June 2011 we had a decent first dinner at Tanjia - the entrees were so-so, but the mixed platter starter and bastillas (we had both seafood and chicken) were...More

Dined on 9-3-11. Food and service was good. Lamb w/prunes was lean and tender. Only complaint is that Tanjia has not decreased the sales tax charged from 9.75% to 8.75%. We and all customers were overcharged 1% on the total food bill. Does the restaurant...More

We were excited to eat at Tanjia. The food wasnt very good at all. Very salty. Entertainment was too loud and not very good. Would not recommend.
