Sahaa Medina Information

Sahaa Medina in Auckland, has authentic African, Moroccan, Tunisian cuisine served in a traditional and romantic setting. While Makhlouf Benyettou's, Sahaa Medina wouldn't exactly be the flashiest restaurant in Auckland, you'd be hard-pressed to find more authentic Algerian and Moroccan food in the central Auckland city.

"One of the best ethnic restaurants" - Michael Guy

This was the worst dining experience I have ever suffered. We endured rubbery squid, dry sausages, bland slop, mash and rice which looked 2 days old and a horrible restaurant manager. She was incredibly rude and we were made to feel that our presence was an inconvenience for her. We had a legitimate query when the bill came but soon realised that it was not point trying to argue. Spend your hard earned cash somewhere else.

Some of the lamb pieces on skewers (appetizer) were as chewy as eating a leather belt. It was full of fat and cartilage and slightly burned. They used some of the absolute worst meat cuts available.

When I complained to the owner she started walking away while I was talking to her about this, but we did get a "discount" for the appetiser.

The main was lamb in a clay pot. The meat was digestible this time, only for its tenderness but not the flavour. If you're prepared to pay $24 for some boiled lamb with a few pieces of potato and peas in a see-thru gravy and absolutely no flavour then fork out another ten bucks and go eat some place nice.

We left the restaurant after taking a few bites. The main meal was well and proper revolting, and an embarrassment at that price.

Marco's is totally worth going to for only one reason: the lamb and prune tagine. Slow cooked overnight, it's the type of dish you can't wait to eat again. Especially suited to a cold grey Auckland night and a very berry pinot noir.
