Marrakesh-Moroccan Lounge and Bar | Review

While Marrakesh is primarily a bar, it offers a full menu of Moroccan food served as you would eat it in Morocco. Featuring both an indoor and alfresco area, which comes replete with inviting rattan chairs, plush sofas, brocade ottomans and daybeds, this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing spots at Clarke Quay.

The Moroccan-influenced chill-out tunes that are played here are also perfect accompaniments to the décor. We started our meal with some much needed alcohol. Our lychee martini is one of the yummiest we’ve ever had, as the vodka did not empower the generous lychee syrup, while the Marrakesh Special, a concoction of Malibu, banana liqeur, Midori, blue curacao and pineapple juice, was sweet and irresistible.

Our mains were pretty good too. We especially liked our Arabic styled prawns with garlic butter and Arabic salad, served with potatoes drenched in a special tomato and pepper sauce, while the chicken schwarma, a Lebanese style roast chicken served with pita bread and Arabic salad, was also commendable. Our char-grilled saffron marinated chicken skewers, accompanied by bell pepper chakchouka, did not disappoint either. We will be back for more.
