Description: The original Maroush restaurant, opened by Marouf Abouzaki more than 30 years ago, this Edgware Road staple is even more popular today than it was back then.A lively, two-floor restaurant capable of seating more than 150 guests at a time, Maroush Edgware Road features a casual sit-down area on the main floor, and a larger dining room in the basement. Popular with families earlier in the evening, the crowd changes over to a younger set as the night wears on.One of the two Maroush outlets featuring live Lebanese music and belly dancing in the evenings, the atmosphere at Maroush Edgware Road is upbeat and energetic through to closing time at 2am.Open noon to 2am, 7 days a week.Live music & belly dancing every night from 9:30pm to closing.

Reviewed February 12, 2014

Fortunately we went with friends and had a wonderful evening however I have eaten in better restaurants for the money - the company was better than the food - I doubt whether I would return.

“Average food”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

I honestly see what the hype is about Maroush. Service wasn't too great neither was food. You can eat better food on edgware road that is also better value for money then here.
I came here for a friends birthday after we ordered the food took about an hour to arrive. The employees were rude and arrogant.
Overall it's decent but you have so many better options on the same road. I won't be going back again.

“Not sure..”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

I came to Maroush last December and wasn't very impressed.

I'm not sure what the smell was but it smelt pretty bad... maybe urine? The food was average, my main course turned up cold. The only part of my meal I genuinely enjoyed was the Hommos Beiruty starter which was lovely. I think they need to work on getting a new chef and also trying to keep the music down! I couldn't hear what I was saying to my fiance the whole time!!

“Good food with a show”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

The music accompanying the belly dancer is quite loud, and they also have some cheesy disco lights on for the show. It is not the place to go if you want to have lots of chit chat and a catch up over dinner... Having said that, the show is not on the entire night!
I loved the lamb which was soft and tender and just fell off the bone.
