Dissapointing Service

There was a cool breeze which was most welcomed after a day of incredible heat. The food was good, nothing amazing but the service... read more

The rooftop ambience is magnificent. The service is impeccable. But was this curry? The thinnest of a too abundant masala topped with vegetable ballast. The meat had just met the masala moments before serving. If you need a curry. .. there's nowhere else. ..

I went with two friends for a meal at Les Jardins de Bala recently and had a fantastic experience. The food is excellent, I would recommend the Onion Bhaji starter, the Lamb Jhalfrezi was delicious, and the chicken dishes looked amazing too. This was Indian / Sri-Lankan fine dining, beautifully cooked and at a very reasonable price The location is... More

wonderfully authentic and superbly tasty meal. Friendly staff who were happy to advise you. The restaurant is on the room terrace of the Hotel Jardins de la Koutoubia, which a great hotel. You have views of the Koutoubia, which is probably quite unique. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is situated on top of a 5* hotel and is absolutely stunning. The atmosphere of the restaurant was wonderful and all of the food was absolutely delicious. I had the chicken tikka masala and my partner had the jalfrezi however, my partner did get a dodgy tummy afterwards. In my opinion, it was totally unnecessary to have the... More

Les Jardins de Bala restaurant is situated at roof level of the Koutoubia Hotel but not connected to it. It is a haven of peace above the frenzy of Marrakech. There are two dining areas one in the open air amid the trees and flowers and an inside air conditioned area. Both are charming. The food is South Indian and... More

We spend a lot of time in Marrakech and have walked past the man in the turban many times. Finally decided to give the restaurant a try and very glad we did. We were 2 Scots who eat curries at home a lot and a Moroccan who had never eaten curry before. All of us enjoyed the food and the... More

We first ate here 5 years ago & sadly things are not the same. Firstly I emailed to book a table 10 days in advance & had no reply. Our hotel managed to book us a table on arrival in Marrakech. After having drinks downstairs in the palce ( lovely). We stepped out of the lift to be ignored by... More

Undoubtedly one of the best specially selected spice curries I can recall eating (and there has been many thousands). We casually walked into the restaurant and were "spellbound" by the setting, atmosphere, friendliness and welcome from ALL the staff. The food can only be described as spectacular. Although being caucasian I was raised in Asia, sailed on ships with Indian... More
