Morocco West was featured in a local magazine promoting Vancouver's local fare. This place caught my eye, I'm always up for trying new flavours and cuisines. At the end of the meal I was left wanting more, not more food but more gumption.
We went using a social shopper voucher. A pretty good deal. We shared a 'duck' starter, this was cooked well but the sauce didn't gel well in our opinion. I ordered the chicken tagine and MM ordered the recommended lamb cous cous. Both were adequate, nothing you couldn't make at home to be brutally honest. The dishes were lacking distinction in terms of spice and flavours. Nothing stood out. Saying that, however, the dessert helped to redeem our experience. We shared the lavender honey pannacotta - hit the spot nicely.
If we didn't have the voucher and had to pay full price, we would have felt hard done by. The starters and dessert are well priced, the mains were not.
The newly appointed server was great. She was friendly, attentive without being overbearing. It was nice to hear and see management advising/coaching their staff.
Atmosphere is nice (could do with a stronger extractor fan in the kitchen). It was quiet when we went during the week. I'm sure there is a lot more going on at the weekend. They also have happy hour during the week. I may give that a go.
