Kazbah, Top Ryde

My first visit to Kazbah wasn’t a memorable one. The food didn’t live up to the expectation and the service was horrid. This was about 2 or more years ago now and I have not returned until recently. I was catching up with the lovely suzchef, and I suggested we go here. To be frank, we didn’t really care where we went; it was a LONG overdue catch up! I have yet to see suzchef tummy and believe me, she was looking absolutely radiant! They say some women looks well when they are pregnant whilst others might not and she is definitely one of those women that looks extremely well whilst pregnant!

We didn’t have any entrees, went straight to mains. I couldn’t go past the char-grilled grain fed scotch fillet, asparagus, Moroccan butter, chips with Kazbah seasoning. The steak was a little thin but cooked to perfection. The chips were a little soggy for my liking – I am not a huge fan of soggy chips unless I am drunk and the Moroccan butter was a wonderful complement!


S couldn’t go past the tagines – chicken, chermoula, lima beans, potatoes, green olives served with a choice of carrot steamed couscous or rice pillaf. The tagine was tasty – the chicken tender and full of flavours. It smelt absolutely divine which made the dish even tastier!


I have to admit, the meal was better than what I remembered it to be. I don’t know if it’s the location, or the fact that it wasn’t super busy, but service was pleasant and good. I didn’t have high expectations in the first place so that may have helped! Ha! I am willing to give their breakfast another go.

We were too full for dessert, and I had a very restless and bossy Dragon with me!


It was so lovely to catch up with you S! Can’t wait to meet the little one.

    I went here for the first time a few weeks ago and I thought it was pretty good – if anything the service was over-attentive. Like the location and the food we had was nice too.

    It was so true – we didn’t care where we went, we just wanted to catch up! It was so lovely to see you & it was a bonus that the food turned out well. I always go to Kazbah for brunch which I rate very highly, so it was something different to try it at night.
    Thanks for your kind words – I am feeling very round & as I approach the end I’m just feeling less and less elegant! Hahaha!
