“Unexpected” it may be, but this restaurant has provided the “royal town” with “very delicious Moroccan food” – including “excellent filo pastries with chicken and almonds, and generous, authentic tagines” – for a quarter of a century. Founder Mustapha Chab based it on an original Al Fassia in Marrakech, opened by his brother who had been a director at the city’s famed Mamounia hotel.

“It’s always a pleasure to eat and drink in this Moroccan restaurant”, whose kitchen is on top form in its 25th year. “The authentic Moroccan dishes are all good – the bastilla is excellent, as is the m’hammar (slow-cooked lamb shoulder)”, and there’s a “relatively short but interesting list of Moroccan wines which range across the taste spectrum”. The restaurant was founded by Mustapha Chab based on an original Al Fassia in Morocco opened by his brother, a former director of Marrakech’s famous Mamounia hotel.

“This family-run Moroccan restaurant is one of Windsor’s best-kept secrets”, “tucked away down a backstreet away from the tourist drag” and now in its third decade. “The food is always great – authentic, well-cooked, and in generous portions. You can now sometimes get the specials without pre-ordering – they’re so popular that some are now made on spec”.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
