Marakesh ? Marrakesh in Studio City... horrible

babydoc | Jun 24, 2004 10:36 PM

I took my GF to Marrakesh for her birthday last week at this restaurant and it turned out to be one of the worst idea's I have ever had.

Originally I was looking for a restaurant with good food and entertainement, and I got neither. Well the food was good, up until the main course. I am middle eastern myself so it was not a matter of taste, the meat was really horrible. First off this is a five course met menu, each course was brought out at marathon speed. I love to eat, but I also like to enjoy what I am eating. I had to actually tell the waiter to slow down and space the courses farther apart. the main course was very dissapointing. Tough lamb kabobs, dehydrated chewy beef sausages and what appeared to be boiled/steamed chicken breast (which was the only edible meat).

Now for the entertainment. The belly dancer came around once. She came by later to give her card for lessons and I asked her if thats all, and she said she would come back again if she had time. She did, but left after only a few minutes. Thats not much entertainment. It might have been better off considering her dancng abilities.

Can a restaurant earn a negaive rating?
