    steemed veggies

    we went for dinner - ordered the chicken coucous (got lamb instead) it was good. the vegetable coucous was soggy and the vegetables were steamed - no flavor at all. no music and very drab interior. for cheap food that fills.. it's worth the $.

    Definately worth it

    After browsing the midtown area for a good middle eastern restaurant for lunch, my mom and I decided to try out Marrakesh because it seemed to get pretty good reviews and the price was inexpensive. The restaurant has no more than 15 tables, but it was packed, luckily we didn't have to wait. We instantly saw the generous portion size and decided to split a platter. We went for the chicken and lamb kebab combo, which came with hummus, babbaganoush, and falafel with a choice of rice and/or salad (we went with the salad since it also came with pita bread). We were stuffed by the time we left for $8 a person. The kebab is flavorful and juicy and the hummus is homemade and much better than many other places I have tried in nyc. Only complaint is that service is very slow (there is one person working there) but definately a great place to go to for lunch if you're in the area. Definately recommend

    Crisp, Flavorful Falafel at a Great Value

    I tried Marrakesh's falafel platter for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. The falafel was crisp on the outside but nice and moist on the inside. The platter was served with seven falafel and a medium sized green salad with two pitas. For $8, this was a great value and very satisfying. Their hot sauce and tahini are also excellent.

    One of the best falafel place around

    This is one of the best falafel place in mid-town. Plus, their tahini and hot sauace are real good. I have been their regular customer for last 3 years and the quality of food has always been consistent. Thier mint tea is pretty good too.

    Really good food and value for money!

    Had a fantastic falafel sandwich and will totally go back! Service was fast, friendly and having lived in the Middle East for over 10 years, can say with confidence that the food was so authentic, great quality and and EXTREMELY TASTY. The place is small, but reasonable for a group of 5-6 people ... the interior decor is really nice and I would highly recommend this place!

    fresh and a great value

    I've been for lunch many times (I like alcohol with dinner). The ingredients are always fresh and the staff and other patrons are pleasant. Not gourmet, but a very satisfactory experience.

    not the best middle eastern food...

    So I just ordered from this place for the first time today. I was slightly dissappointed at the quality of food after all the great reviews. The flavors were ok, but the grapeleaves were mushy and the ground lamb was really tough-- like not juicy at all. It's not that expensive, so id don't feel ripped off, but the sandwhich only had 3 pieces of meat, which is kind of ridiculous-- I'm not the biggest eater, but even I think I'll be hungry soon! Overall, good try, but I just wish they paid a little more attention to quality.
