Where else can you get a 5 course meal of flavourful food for 20.00! Unbelievable! The lentil soup, spicy lamb and salad are especially wonderful! The service was done by a young lady who was exceptionally gracious. The music and belly dancer added an enjoyable touch. This restaurant is well worth going to!

Recommended by a friend, this place was the highlight of our first day in Seattle! Such a cute and comfy atmosphere. Our waiter was extremely nice as well. Everything is meant to be eaten with your hands, (it is extremely difficult but extremely worth it) but they will give you a fork if you make it clear you're struggling. Ha.... More

The staff are so kind and amazing. Went with a larger group for a birthday party. Brought a cake with me and the host instantly took it out of my hands and made sure if it was okay to refrigerate. The food was fun to share with the group- some a little messy, but that is part of the atmosphere.... More

Very pleasant evening with good food and service at a reasonable price. The bistilla was less seasoned that I would have liked, but the tagine was better. Overall a good evening.

If you never had Moroccan food, worth going. The food is decent, the atmosphere is fun. There are belly dancers during weekend.

I visited Marrakesh Moroccan Restaurant at about 7:00 pm on a Sunday evening. I was solo. I found the place is too crowded and some kind of traditional belly dance performance is going on. I ordered a Tagine of Spicy Lamb and it was a five course meal. The food was just good although the price was on the upper... More

The food here was so great and it just keeps coming. The service was nice, with having your hands washed a couple times. My boyfriend was full-on hungry but I wanted something small, like a soup or appetizer but they don't have that option... which was weird. You have to buy the full 5-course meal or nothing (and the price... More

We went into this not knowing what to expect and it was definitely a pleasant surprise!! The service was incredible and the food delicious. A must for anyone visiting Seattle and especially if you're looking for an authentic Moroccan experience! It would be a great place for a group gathering. Bravo!!

Have always wanted to come here on recent trips t Seattle but partner wasn't too excited about the idea of Moroccan cuisine. FInally convinced him to go and we were thrilled with the experience. In fact he said, he would return on the same trip! We had the Five course meal for $19.95. Started out with ritual warm water hand... More
