Cons: little pricey

I went to el Mansour for a friend's birthday celebration. There were about 12 of us, so they clustered us around 3 tables. The inside is a bit small, so definitely make reservations ahead of time for larger parties. This was a fun place to celebrate!! We ate with our hands, so if you go here, hopefully you are comfortable sharing with your friends. There were a lot of great options to choose from on the menu (we ordered from the right side, I believe it was, where the combination meals were listed). Partway into our meal, we enjoyed some great photo opportunities with the belly dancer. She was very talented, entertaining, and friendly...she encouraged a few in my group to interact and do some dancing of their own.
The place was pretty easy to find. Parking took a little bit of time, but definitely not as bad as other areas of SF. I think I parked about 2 blocks away. I had a fantastic time and would definitely go back again!!

PROS: Fun for celebration dinners, entertaining belly dancers, great food!
CONS: Inside is a little small.

This place is great for group celebrations as well as romantic dining. It has a great colorful ambience. It's great to go with large groups because you can order the combination pre-fixe platter which has a combination of every entree on their menu. Also, be warned that you eat with your hands - no utensils! (Of course, you can request utensils but eating with your hands is part of the overall experience!) Before the meal, there is a hand washing tradition which allows for clean meal sharing. The belly dancer comes out to perform every 1/2 hour or so and she is wonderful and interactive. Great experience overall!

PROS: Great for groups!
CONS: A Bit Pricey for the Amount of Food since you get full on mostly bread
