Hidden Gem!

This is the second visit to this charming restaurant which is full of character and delicious food. Portions are larger than average and price is fair. The service is friendly and has a lovely atmosphere.......in a competitive place like St.Albans this little restaurant stands out.

We dropped into Little Marrakesh last week while visiting St Albans. The space is narrow and long and you can easily miss the front - don't do that! The staff take great pride in their work and are very helpful in describing dishes and making recommendations. The Moroccan bread was wonderful as were our meals. We enjoyed our sandwiches so...

A bit of a tardis this place. Tiny little front window, but surprising amount of room. Nice food, great decor, really friendly staff and a belly dancer when I went. Really well decorated toilets.

Fabulous food, attentive service, lovely authentic atmosphere. This was our our second time at this restaurant. Having thoroughly enjoyed the food and whole experience first time around, it had a lot to live up to. We were a party of 6 this time and were made instantly welcome. And despite our high expectations, the food was still fabulous. It may... More

This is undoubtedly the very best Moroccan restaurant we have visited! The Moroccan red wines go well with the Tangines (ours was a succulent lamb shank with couscous). We also opted for the two person mezze appetizer of smoky eggplant, beet root, sausage, carrots, hummus, all done in a unique style. Reservations are a must on weekends

It looks like such a small quiet restaurant from the high street, one you open the door you enter a whole new world! The restaurant is quite large with a buzzy atmosphere. We were greeted straight away by a waiter who seated us, I would recommend you book before arriving. The menu has huge variety, I went for a traditional... More

This Restaurant is very deceiving from the outside, when you go through the entrance it opens right out, really friendly staff, fantastic decor, and the atmosphere to match, visited at Lunchtime , special menu available, for a really low price. I chose a traditional Tagine full of Beef, and vegetables, and of course the obligatory fries on the side, really... More

Had an absolutely delicious meal in here. The food is beautiful and the portions are more than enough. I had the stuffed whole baby chicken and it was amazing. Lovely staff and a really nice atmosphere. Something different in St Albans which is needed.
