Tajine reopening in The Heights?

I heard Tajine is reopening in a week or so. (The Heights is located on the corner of Pacific and Van Ness.)

  1. Awesome. Loved this place when it was in the Tenderloin. Missed it so. Pleas keep us informed on it's opening.

    1. According to EaterSF, it reopens on Thursday (5/7)

      1. It is officially open. Looking forward to going some time next week.

        1. Here's the Place link. Looking forward to hearing some reports.

            I went this past Wednesday and it was very good. The new space is much more comfortable, with low seating and the traditional Moroccan brass tables. And, since it is now inside the Heights nightclub, you can have cocktails and wine with your meal. Service needs to get up to speed, but they haven't been open long and I'm sure it will get there. The food, however, was right on. We had the $29 pre-fixe which is one hell of a bargain, including soup, choice of salad (we had the Mosaic of Salads), bastilla and an entree. We also ordered a side of Merguez just because we like Merguez. For my entree I had the lamb tajine which was succulent and flavorful. I could get into this more but am pressed for time -- suffice to say that quality has not suffered in the least with Tajine's move, and atmosphere has improved greatly.

              Hey Zach, thanks for the post and run! I'm looking forward to trying the food at the new digs. I completely missed the Polk St location, only ate on Jones.

                Thanks Zack! I was sad to see Tajine replaced on Polk by City Kebab (no knock against City Kebab) and thrilled to see it re-open in a bigger space.

                Did you notice if the a la carte prices are similar to what they were before? I am just wondering if they're still a place to grab a $10 dinner, or more mid-range now . Their website still has all the old prices listed, but the address has been updated.

                  I didn't pay attention to the a la carte prices since we decided to go for the fixed price dinner. My sense was that they are trying to keep things at the same price point as before.

            2. I'm sorry to see that it's not open for lunch. Their hours are correctly shown on their website ( as Tuesday through Sunday, 5:00pm to 10:00pm. The menu on the site is a lunch menu which is not correct (I called and they said they're working on the site). Too bad...
