“Better than Thailland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Welcoming, professional waiters. Food is the best I have ever had in years. Only one that I can think of that can match it in London. Try it and you will not be dissapointed.

“NOT a touris trap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This was the best meal we had in Marrakech... the rest all semed over rated and over priced... here you get some of the best Thai food anywhere, service with a smile and lovely athmospheric surroundings. Every plate was tasty and extremely well prepared! Staff very attentive and overall the place is very well run... this is the only thing i will miss when i leave Marrakech

One of my best value for money choice locations!

They also serve a lunch buffet.

“Bland and disappointing: there really are far better choices in Marrakech”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

If your friend gave you food like this you would be pleased that they took the time to Thai-cut the vegetables but you would still have to be polite about the overall impression. This is an okay restaurant. It's attractive but the food is disappointing and the service is polite and friendly but vaguely incompetent and on the whole there are definitely far better ways to spend your money in Marrakech. We didn't want to eat chicken, beef or duck (obviously there's no pork on the menu in Marrakech and we would have been avoiding that as well) but we were willing to eat fish, calamari and prawns. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't as good as average either. Don't bother.

“Superb Thai and Japanese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Great service and food. Waiters very flexible dealing with fussy tastes of children. Wonderful Thai food freshly prepared by a chef you can watch. But if you like it fairly hot, let them know because the default seems to lack chilli. The tom yum soup is certainly unorthodox, but very tasty all the same. Great, super-fresh sushi. Fairly pricey but excellent all round. Highly recommended.

“Thai in Morocco? Yes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

We were invited for a company celebration there and I was sceptical to have Thai in Marrakech. The service was excellent, there was a real Asian in the kitchen (don´t think he was Thai as he looked suspiciously chinese...) who cooked amazing asian dishes. Not only typical Thai but also japanese sushi, chinese dim-sum and all kinds of curry. Appetizers, mains excellent. Dessert ok...
I recommend it thoroughly though, especially if you had enough tajines...
