Our Belief

Before we create a great cuisine, we need inspiration from the country itself. We need an abundance of fine ingredients, a variety of cultural influences from throughout the nations history bringing about all its culinary secrets, and we need the essence of it’s time as a great civilization to bring into the cuisine the imagination of a nations cooks from the royal kitchens of the refined palaces to the bustling bazaars- these influences are what come together to balance your plate.’

Our Restaurant

Hassan’s restaurants have been well loved and awarded. In the late 1980’s Hassan brought with him from Casablanca the first Moroccan Cuisine in NSW when he opened ‘The Mosquito Bar’ (1986) in Mosman NSW. Hassan didn't stop there, opening ‘Casablanca’ (1990) in Manly NSW, and then ‘Out of Africa’ (1995) - his most successful restaurant, which closed its doors in 2016 after almost 20 years for a much needed break.
