Excellent, authentic Moroccan cuisine in the neighborhood. The slow-cooked lamb shank was outstanding and well worth the wait. The appetizers of spiced carrots, hummus and tabbouleh were all fresh, along with warm pita. Outside table seating was very nice and not too noisy. We'll be returning, for sure.

BE CAREFUL...The waiter thought we ordered an appetizer but we actually didn't. We just asked about it. That was okay because it was good but the menu made it seem that it would be $14 for 2 people and when the bill arrived it was actually $24. Maybe our misunderstanding? He was not a native English speaker so we just assumed we didn't communicate clearly.
We each ordered a Gyro for $12. He asked if we wanted french fries. We said no. He said he would bring salads (which we assumed were included) Although the menu said $12 for Gyros we were charged $12 each plus $5 extra each for the meat selected to go inside the Gyro (although a meat charge wasn't stated on the menu) and we were also charged for fries, which we didn't order. We tried to talk to the waiter about it but he made himself scarce after dropping the check and all of a sudden didn't understand our speech. We decided to just pay and leave. Food was good but I'll never go back because it is clearly an attempt at a rip off. Our bill was $63 for one appetizer and 2 Gyros.

White House Tajine is a gem of a location with outstanding food and service. It is family owned and operated with much attention to customers. We enjoyed our experience and will be happily back for more. The kefta grill and chicken tajine were outstanding.

You must go or get take out. The menu is short; but delicious. And it does have something for everyone. Delicious Moroccan...chicken tajine was awesome, the "spicy carrots" I've never had at any other Middle Eastern restaurant....but they've got pizza & burgers for the kids/unadventurous. Service is impeccable & friendly. The owner talked to us at length about what we were eating & how he prepared it. He made suggestions & we loved it all.

Coffee was Middle Eastern blend & EXCELLENT.

The restaurant is small & all booths. But take out or dine it. Give it a try for lunch or dinner. I'm going back for sure.

We had a really nice dine in experience. The staff was very friendly. Our main entrees took a little bit of a wait but everything was made fresh so it’s understandable so we enjoyed sharing our appetizers as we waited. By sharing we tried a variety from carrot salad, Moroccan soup, lamb couscous, and lamb Tajine , with fresh breads. I had mint tea and my husband had a pineapple drink that were also very good. Their homemade baklava for dessert was also excellent. Will definitely return.

The food is very good. Would definitely eat there again. The owners are very friendly and personable. The atmosphere needs a little updating. The decor is busy and not quite a cohesive theme but the business is new so I'm sure in a few months it'll be ironed out. Overall, it's a nice local business with quality food at a good value.

This restaurant is run by a lovely family that lives in the same building. They were so welcoming, especially the owner and father. The decor of the restaurant, family ambiance and location all helped contribute to a cozy, unique, kind of odd dining experience. I would definitely recommend it. They have traditional dishes like the Tajine or the Cous Cous, but also more Americanized dishes like fries and Gyros. We tried both and were not disappointed by either style.
