This restaurant is one of those places you drive by daily and think to yourself "I have to try that place". A year went by and finally, 5 friends of mine and I made it an occasion. We all LOVED it! I had some of the BEST hummus ever. Their hummus plate (with 3 types of hummus style dip/spreads) and... More

Started with a terrific sampler platter (hummus, zaaluk, mohamara), then had the Beef Tagine. Everything was excellent. The owner came by and explained the dishes. Very friendly.

I loved the Shish Cafe, which was formerly in this space and also served Mediterranean. However, not only was this restaurant not as good, it was terrible. Burned, tasteless felafel. Soupy and strange tasting muhammara (a red pepper dip). My friend had a chicken dish that was also pretty bad. A waste of money. The staff were very nice, though... More

My family and I just went to Marrakesh for New Years Day in the evening. The food was amazing and our server was really nice. Probably the best hummus I've ever had. The lamb was incredible. Try the mint tea (though make sure you listen when they tell you to use a napkin to pick up the handle because it... More

We dined at this restaurant when they first opened, it was just okay. We loved the Shish (previous restaurant) at this location and looked forward to trying Marrakesh.Decided to go there for New Year's Eve, because Sadira, a fabulous Middle Eastern dancer, was performing. There was a prix fixe( spelling?) menu, which was a bit high given their regular prices,... More

The interior is pretty. I used to go the Shish which was a good restaurant but it didn't look so great. Food was enjoyable as were the people. Worth going to.
