Marrakech | Abuja

đź“Ť2, Bangui Street, Wuse 2, Abuja

Late lunch at Marrakech yesterday! Tbh, I was skeptical about visiting cause I had heard more negative reviews than good ones. Regardless, I thought I & @9jafoodphotographer should visit it and see for ourselves.

AMBIENCE:

In regards to the interior decoration, I wasn’t particularly a fan of the choice of furniture, but I liked certain details, such as the geometric patterns, light fixtures, and ofcourse the art pieces on the wall! What I found most interesting was the shadows the arabesque pattern on the glazed panels created.

SERVICE:

We were given complimentary tea as we sat. Waitress was nice and helpful. Food came in under 20 minutes!

SALMAH’S SIDENOTE:

I personally wouldn’t want to dine in here again. Tables were awkward and whatnot, I’d probably just get takeout and eat at home. If you’re a fan of shisha, this would be a nice spot for you, although I think you smoke indoors.

REVIEW OF FOOD:

Grilled Chicken Skewers – N3500

Urghh. Wish I could rewind time to eat this again. It was marinated nicely and super tender. Beautiful!

Mandi Rice w Spicy Grilled Chicken – N3500

Mandi rice was nice in my opinion, although @9jafoodphotographer wasn’t a fan of it cause of the cardamom seeds.
