Just like lounging in front of a
fireplace reading a quality novel, devouring a delicious meal is also
heart-warming, intellectually-simulating and prone to inducing sparks of
excitement. Savour mouth-watering cuisine with today’s deal: $49 for an
authentic Moroccan meal for two people including an entrée to share, two mains
and two glasses of beer or wine at Shibah Moroccan Restaurant in St Kilda (up to $105 value).
Ravenous rebels grab a pal and roll together towards St Kilda to savour the wonderfully flavoursome fare offered at this Moroccan eatery. Once settled into the warm environs, allow the waiters to present a mazzetta plate to share as entrée that features traditional bread and mixed dips. Whilst reclining, select any main from menu including Casablanca Memulaim featuring stuffed capsicum with beef mince and rice, Fes Fish Kufta cooked in a spicy tomato sauce or Chicken Tajine with chickpeas and served on a bed of couscous. Two glasses of wine or beer make perfect accompaniments to the meal. An optional hookah pipe arrives at the end of the meal should patrons wish it in to existence and for just $10 extra, enjoy a selection of flavours like strawberry, watermelon, apple or mint to round out the typical and authentic experience.
Family owned and run, the owners of Shibah - Hani, Kobi and Ronit – developed a menu using inspiration from the meals prepared by their Moroccan mother. As a child, the now head chef, Kobi used to wake to the smell of divine cuisine wafting into his room. Be welcomed by the family into the abode and allow the buzz of Mediterranean Africa to engulf the senses and infuse the soul.
The food here is amazing. I ate here several times and it is always delicious. My favourite is the Haloumi Salad. The staff is friendly and the owner is a really nice person and an amazing cook. Nice atmosphere, lovely beer garden and easy to find in St Kilda. Give it a GO, it’s worth it.

I came for dinner last Saturday with a small group of friends. We were greeted by friendly staff and were seated in their lovely private courtyard. We had a fantastic night catching up over drinks and AMAZING food. The Mazzettas was the perfect entree to share between us all which was a mixture of Moroccan salads, dips and the most amazing bread I’ve ever tasted. Every one of us loved our mains. I had the Casablanca Memulaim (stuffed capsicum), it was so full of flavour my taste buds didn’t know what hit them! Finishing off with Moroccan tea and cookies was the icing on the cake. We got the total Moroccan experience and we will definitely be returning again soon. Thanks Shibah :)
