“What happened to the Old Thai Bistro?”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Bistro Thai used to be my favorite restaurant in Marrakech. It is still good and has good quality food, but it isn't as good as it used to be. The plates range from 100-160 dirham. The quality used to be worth the price. Now I only eat there when I'm craving Thai food. The curry dishes seem to be missing coconut milk. If you want Thai food, I would still recommend it. I just wouldn't expect to have the best Thai food ever.

“Inconsistent and money focused”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have eaten at Bistro Thai a number of times and have always loved it. Its some of the best asian food on offer in Marrakech.

This week however we had a set menu for a large group and were ripped off. The mains were substandard and the service slow and confused. I had a fried rice with shrimps which was bland and had 2 small shrimps. Given we paid 250 MAD per person this dish was disappointing and clearly we were taken advantage of. On top of that they tried to overcharge for 2 bottles of wine. Only after a 15 minute discussion did we receive a bill for the right amount.

Stick to the menu and don't come here with groups. The food is usually amazing but they obviously can't handle anything other than al a carte tourist clients.

“Times change, Bistro Thai, too...”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Sadly, that is true. Thai chef is no longer there, portions are becoming smaller, setting - more and more inappropriate (TV screen, live music, ...). Disregard my previous comment.

“Thai food at its very best!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Fabulous choices at excellent pricing options make the Thai Bistro a top choice in Marrakech. The atmosphere lends itself to an attentive staff who are ready and wiling to accommodate your every dining wish. Top it all with an extensive wine list and you'll not soon forget the fabulous Thai Bistro.

“Wonderful thai restaurant!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Just back from a week in Marrakech. we ended up eating here twice as the food and service was so fabulous. We struggled to find decent restaurants in Marrakech despite recommendations from this site and our Riad. We are a family of 4 one vegetarian and one fish eater vege. The service was superb. The food excellent and we have all been to Thailand and eat it regularly. Very reasonably priced. They even gave us a choice of free drinks at the end of our meal. The place was spotless. Would not hesitate to recommend. Thanks for 2 great meals we were nearly giving up hope of finding somewhere good to eat.
