Welcome

to Al Casbah!
Al Casbah has one of the most eye-catching windows on Mill Road. Passers by are greeted by a huge grill, with flames leaping up as the freshly-prepared meat and fish are cooked. This striking sight catches the attention of many a casual diner as people often stop, glance at the menu in the window, have a brief discussion and then enter.

About

Our Restaurant
Established in 1997, Al Casbah has been passed down from father to sons who continue on the family tradition of serving fresh North African cuisine. With a warm and friendly atmosphere we cater for couples, families, group parties and special occasions. Enjoy our freshly made meze dips, grilled meats and fish which are cooked for you on a large open charcoal grill or if you fancy something different from our kitchen try the tagines and couscous we have to offer. The warm and vibrant interior with the draping tent will leave you feeling as though you have entered an ancient medina.
