Description: Open since August 2004, Narwama has become an address not too be missed, where your dinner experience will be turned into a fairy tale. Narwama literally means "Fire & Water", the fusion with arts and culture, where amazing experiences and magic evenings are set in a palace, classified world heritage by the UNESCO. Unique Thai restaurant in Marrakesh, the 2 Thai chefs elaborates an authentic cuisine with ingredients that are directly imported from Bangkok. Narwama also offers an array of refined and subtle Moroccan specialties. The fusion is daring but we have to admit it the result is unbelievable. More than what is already said, the lounge bar atmosphere is intoxicating, joined by fusion music and delicious house cocktails. Daily entertainments and art performances from artists around the world, Narwama will take you to Wonderland!

“an authentical oasis in Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you want to escape from the madness of the Marrakech's streets you will find it in the club. It is really hiden but five minutes far from Djema El Fnaa square you will have all the relax and the same feelings as if you were in any Ibiza/New York pub.
Fantastic service and delicious cocktails in a real good decorated place.
And one oasis where you will find alcoholic drinks... buy a bit expensive.

“Really good food, just very expensive!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

My partner and I stumbled across this restaurant during the day however it was closed and decided to come back in the evening. The decor is beautiful and the restaurant creates this feeling you are outdoors which is actually not the case. The restaurant was not busy so we had very attentive service and our food came within good time. The food was very good and good portions. Just after my starter I was nearly full. The only but main downside is the meal was very expensive. We had two courses and only had a bottle of water and a soft drink each and this came to just over 800dh. Very expensive meal for two considering we didn't order any alcohol!! But the food was good and filled us up after walking around the square for hours, so on this occasion we did not have too much cause to grumble especially after eating in other places around the square for less but also with less quality.

“Overpriced!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We visited this restaurant largely due to the good reviews seen on Trip Advisor. However I was astonished at the prices. I really don't expect to be paying London prices in Morocco, a country where you can eat great food for really good prices. We sat down, the place looked half full or so and there only appeared to be one waiter. He left us for around 10 mins with our menu, which we perused. All mains were over 20 euro and even a bowl of white rice was 8 euro. I didn't dare look at the wine list. So we got up and left. Admittedly the setting was interesting. But I wasn't going to pay those prices!

“touristic trap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

nice decor and atmosphere but it is a very expensive touristic trap. The service was slow and there were several tables that were empty. The food was ok, but the portions were small and the price high.

“It's a Shame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Great setting with authentic Thai food. It's a shame that it is empty, expensive and poorly run. I expect that within the next couple of times we visit Marrakech this restaurant will not be there.
