A big family favourite for years past and years to come.

As a family we always celebrate at "little Marrakesh". The staff are massively welcoming and the food always fantastic! A shopping trip can become an enjoyable event after a lunch here. Never thought I'd enjoy something cooked with prunes, but the sultans lamb is amazing, or even Atlas sea bass... read more

We had a day trip to St Albans. Having done absolutely no research on where to go and where to eat it was a case of just follow your eyes, nose and tummy. We had wandered along the street market and the food smell from the various vendors was awesome however having a number of food allergies these were out... More

Its hard to recommend a specific dish as I could quite happily eat anything but the couscous mashwi is probably my favourite. The setting is really lovely and is especially nice in the evening . Moroccan lighting, utensils and tables etc add to the experience. Staff are always exceptionally helpful. Make sure you book in advance and if there are... More

As we went on a Thursday there was a belly dancer, which was great fun, she did a couple of dances then invited diners to join her, this... More

Charming restaurant with character. In a world of pizza places and standard 'italians' this restaurant is really special. Great atmosphere and super staff. Wonderful and unique food.

Had a great family meal on a large round table. The restaurant is surprisingly airy and light once you get in. Food was excellent and catered also for children. Lovely Moroccan mint tea. Would recommend.
