I can't believe this place closed down. I loved this place. This was one of the best restaurants I have had the chance of eating at in Las Cruces. The chicken couscous is the best I have ever had. The service was always friendly and courteous. Please bring it back! I hope they reopen somewhere. People of Las Cruces need to open their minds and not be afraid to try something other that Mexican food.
This place was amazing!
It's about time Las Cruces (and southern New Mexico, for that matter) had a such an unique and tasteful restaurant as Shem's. I do not live in Las Cruces, but when I do come to town I want something different (I really get tired of mexican food after a while). I was delighted to see that Shem's was finally open (I couldn't get into the parking lot fast enough!)
The decor it absolutley fabulous! You can tell right away that extra care was taken to create a little bit of Morocco right here in New Mexico. We stopped by for lunch and I had the Moroccan Pizza and my mom had the Lamb Kabab. Wonderful!! The Moroccan Tea was very delicous.
Next time we come into town, we want to come for dinner. We're told that on Friday and Saturday evenings after 6:30 they have belly dancers. Wow! Can't wait for our next trip . . .
