Latest Update (04/2009): I just found out that this lovely restaurant closed down and was replaced by a chinese noodle restaurant. What a pity because I really enjoy the Tunisian food. There's just too many chinese noodles restaurant as it is!

Le Cous Cous chez Rashid is a beautiful small restaurant serving one of the finest of Tunisian cuisine in Vienna. It is located in the 1st district, within the Karlplatz area, near the Secession Museum, the Naschmarkt, and on same block as the Cafe Museum. You can easily walk there or you can take the underground train. The restaurant owner is really friendly, and you will be greeted with a firm handshake and a warm smile.

You must try their Mint Tea as starter. And you can finish the meal with strong arabian coffee. If you're feeling adventurous, you can try to smoke the Sisha (water pipe); quite fun really.

Favorite Dish: Their specialties include the delicious Brik*, grilled fish Tunisian style, and of course the variations of Cous Cous with Tagine (stew of chicken/lamb/fish/chickpeas and vegetables), served in a clay pot or large plate.

*Brik: a pastry parcel filled with a variety of fillings e.g. minced lamb, beef, or vegetables. Once this has been decided then an egg is cracked over the contents the pastry folded and deep fried in oil.

Opening hours Monday ? Saturday 11 a.m. ? 12 a.m.
