It wasn't just amazing food, but an entire experience! You pick your entree and get a full 5 course meal at an affordable price. Each dish is to die for. Plus you eat in a traditional Moroccan style, from the seating to washing your hands after courses (sometimes with orange blossom oil). The tea with dessert is also fantastic!

This was a fun restaurant to visit. We have nothing like this where we live in Montana and we're ready to try something new. We took our 3 and 7 year olds who are pretty adventurous eaters. The experience was exciting for them with everything from the hand washing to eating with our hands. The 5 courses were good and... More

This restaurant is an experience that everybody should try. Keep in mind it take you about 2 hours to eat dinner. Being is it the only Moroccan restaurant in town you really can't read it against anything. It is up to par with many that I've been to around the country. Certainly not the best but also certainly not the... More

A caterer recommended that we try out Marrakesh for our daughter's birthday dinner, what an excellent choice! I have to admit, I'd never eaten in a Moroccan restaurant before so I really didn't know what to expect. What we got was a pleasant surprise! The food was excellent, a 5 course meal at a fixed price, and our server was... More

So delicious! This restaurant is really fun, you sit on the floor on Moroccan poufs and eat with your hands.

The Marrakesh was decorated with bright colors and my husband and I sat in a booth while the younger people in our party sat on short ottomans. You eat with your hands and they supply you with water and hand towels. The food was really good and not too spicy. On the weekends they have a belly dancer....it was a... More

Delicious and fantastic service. We cannot wait until we can go back! We had a tour scheduled after dinner so we had to speed our exit but I will definitely not do that again.

Right across the street from our hotel (Inn at Northrup Station) and we love international cuisine so it was a no-brainer. Sadly we missed the belly dancer, which would have been fun. Decor is lush as is the pillow style seating. Meals are served traditional style served with bread, unless you require utensils. The food and service were excellent and... More

If you are looking for fantastic food and great ambiance, you have found it with this place. The service is amazing as is the food. Great place to take out of towners for a treat or the family. I've been here several times and always a pleasure and with a bonus of a belly dancer while dining. Great place, can't... More
