All vegetarian food in an exotic atmosphere

The Casbah Tea House is one of Tucson's few all-vegetarian restaurants. They use organic ingredients when possible.

They're located on 4th Avenue, the perfect location for this hippie/bohemian joint. There's a small coffeehouse in front, with a full restaurant in the back. The restaurant is decorated with Middle Eastern/Asian/hippie flair.

The Casbah has recently started serving breakfast, which means they are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I've had two experiences with the Casbah Tea House. The first time I came in, the staff ignored me and it wasn't clear whether the place was counter service or sit down. I was very hungry so I left. The second time I came in, the girl working behind the counter was friendly and helpful. There were signs such as "Menus" and "Order Here" which was a great improvement. All you do is pay at the counter, they give you a pager and page you when your food is ready to pick up at the front.

I got the shepherd's pie and a chai masala. Food was awesome; drink was pretty good. After I was done eating, two girls came out and did belly dancing and that was fun. Check the website to see what times they do this; it would be neat to watch while sipping a drink but maybe not great if you are trying to concentrate on your meal or your dining companion.

All in all I have to give Casbah a "Good" rating but I will definitely be back. The ambiance may not be for everyone but I enjoyed it.

Great food. The vegan shepherd's pie is superb. But the service is so so slow.
