Menara Moroccan Restaurant knows how to do Moroccan cuisine right. This well-respected San Jose restaurant has been pleasing customers for over three decades. Located just minutes from downtown San Jose, this fine dining establishment provides a unique experience unlike any other. Menara has several different menus, each with multiple courses of delicious food.

Le Dinner Menara is one of the restaurant’s most popular, and features six courses including the dessert of traditional mint tea and baklava. Le Dinner Menara includes Lham Mrhosia—lamb with honey—a Menara favorite. The tender meat is perfectly complimented by the sweetness of the honey and always leaves patrons wanting more.

Menara also caters to vegetarians, and has an entire dinner devoted to meatless dishes. Le Dinner Vegetarian begins with the appetizing Salade Moroccaines, a Moroccan salsa-esque salad served with bread for dipping.
