Moroccan restaurant in hotel on the river side
Cuisine: Morrocan, western
Price indication: a bit expensive; average meal about THB 300-500 / person
Marrakesh was my hope to find a good Arab restaurant in Chiang Mai, as we don’t have that many.
Located inside the premises of a 5-star hotel on the river, I hoped there would be enough customers to offer freshly made and high quality Arab food.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t that great. Most dishes were clearly prepared before and deep-frozen, to be defrosted by micro-wave on demand, so I could taste the structure of the food was damaged and some of the flavour gone.
The price wasn’t that cheap, so I didn’t try for a long while, but I still hope that with more customers in the hotel, somehow the turnover can be high enough to make fresh food every day and perhaps then it’s worth it.
On the west river embankment south of the city. Follow Changklan road under the Superhighway and keep following the river, being on the west embankment. It’s another 1-2 km down south on the left inside the Sjeik Istana Hotel.
Open: every day
