    An All-Around Winner: Food/Service/Ambience

    I can't say enough good things about Marrakesh. I discovered it quite by accident when I happened to look down instead of up on this ethnic-food paradise of a street (it's chock full of authentic Indian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Mexican restaurants). What I found as soon as I entered was amazing: intricately beautiful Moroccan lighting and antiques; warm, sweet-natured service; and both Moroccan and Western specialties -- plus freshly made ice mint tea -- that were an absolute knock-out. I ordered the huge vegetarian platter that came with generous amounts of falafel, hummus, baba ganoush, tablouleh, and it all tasted like it was made from scratch a few minutes before it was served. Plus, the restroom is sparkling clean and the whole place is spotless. Prices are super-reasonable; I paid under $15 not including tax and tip. Highly recommended whether you're eating alone or in a group, which would allow you to share many of the exotic traditional specialties. Bravo, Marrakesh!

    Great Wraps!

    I visited my friend on the UES for lunch and we decided to give this place a try. We ordered take out and both got different wraps. I got the kefta kabob wrap and it was AMAZING! So much so that I went back the next Saturday for a late lunch. Although we were the only ones in there and the A/C wasn't working, I still had an enjoyable experience. I recommend getting take-out and eating in the park.

    Pretty pretty good

    Had it delivered to the office, and it was delivered around the time frame they said. Food was great- they give a good amount for the platters and they don't overfill you with too much food. I can't wait to check this place out!

    Good Middle Eastern

    I've had the vegetarian platter with garden salad - the baba ghanouj & tahini are very good, the pita bread too !! It hit the spot and it's not pricy - I will return

    falafel don't

    the place is very cute and the staff seemed pretty nice. however, the falafel was not so good. it was burnt and did not taste good. i know other people like it. it could've just been my order but i won't be going back.

    Good food Good price

    I will say that this was the best middle eastern food I have had in some time. It's not fancy at all, but very straight-forward good food. The smoky babaganoush and creamy hummus were excellent. The best thing of the evening, though was the Turkish coffee, which was strong, sweet and hardy. Perfect end to the meal. The restaurant is decorated beautifully, but there is no music, so it can be a bit awkward when it's not a full house The service was very friendly, but slow. I think I waited 20 minutes for my coffee at the end of the meal. Overall, very good experience!
