we had two of the following dishes and were not to our expectation.
1. Jordan Hummus topped with spit roasted lamb, tahini sauce, flatleaf parsley and toasted almonds, served with hot Turkish bread
2. Iskender Kebab famous in Turkey – spit roasted lamb over chunks of pide bread in a tomato and thyme sauce, topped with natural yoghurt & parsley
For the food we had to pay before we consume so there is no guarantee of good service or reasonability good food. the chicken and the lamb meals were looked like it had been recycled at least 3or 4 times. three are lot better choices in Auckland if you want to have a good meal!

Cafe Casablanca in Sylvia Park is one of the very few eateries in Sylvia Park that serves up decent food.

The price of food is standard and tending towards the more expensive end of the scale. I think they can be a bit stingy with some meals as you get quite a small portion for the price you pay.

I would recommend their lamb (shank) tagine which is my go-to dish when I'm at Casablanca. It's probably worth getting 2 shanks instead of just the one as you get quite small shanks and one shank might not be enough.

Their churros and pide (bread) are pretty good.

If you find yourself in Sylvia Park and after something decent to eat, then I'd recommend Casablanca as an option. The food served is not fantastic but they have one or two things which are pretty good.


Atmosphere: Comfortable. Can get quite noisy inside.

Beverage: They are licensed and have a variety of beverage options, alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

A great place to meet up with friends for a quick bite before the movies.
Food is reasonable quality, not too expensive. The only negative comment I have is that sometimes the food can take a while to come out. Then you have to rush so as not to miss the beginning of the movie. Make sure you give yourself enough time.

over priced for quantity and quality of food. my dish was semi cold and warm…think they may have reheated in the microwave??and not heated thru enough??also very salty..salads on the dish was not fresh either. Would not return and also do not recommend to others. Atmospher was ok. Service was poor. and…the girl who was taking order at the bar hit on my husband!! Shocking!!

Everytime I go to Cafe Casablanca I enjoy my meal; the hummus, dolmas, the fresh flavours and interesting choices. The arrangment is initially quite strange, you are seated with menu's then you decide what you want and have to get up and order at the counter and pay!!! As a waitress I am surprised at why the staff are incapable of taking a table order but maybe this is to avoid people leaving without getting the bill. The Belly dancer...was not really my cup of tea so I just avoid that night but I love the decor and the cushioned seating. Obviously every restaurant has their different styles of service and Casablanca's isn't the norm but the food is worth getting up for. It has a very authentic flare and I will always enjoy going out to enjoy one of their Mezza platters, which is a cheap meal perfect to share. So many vegetarian options as well which is great if you have vego friends to take out . I urge you to take a trip to Sylvia park and try it for yourself
