Late night dinner in this arabic restaurant, albeit the good food, was kind of spoiled by the slow service and disinterested waiters.
Maybe it's the location (tucked between other arabic and persian restaurants, in a very touristy area full of lights and bustling life), maybe it's just the nature of majority of middle eastern restaurants staff in the city...
How else can I justify that once our group of 4 moved from one table to another, waiters failed to bring us cutlery, napkins, we had to ask separately for a plate for each person by the table...(we were one of the 3 groups of customers at that time, after midnight, so it wasn't cos the waiters were busy with other orders). Fortunately, the portions were large enough (we shared all meals) and tasty.

On the other hand, the Marrakesh restaurant near Damai, off Jalan Tun Razak (much larger, with outdoor seating and livelier atmosphere also thanks to more customers) offers better service at somehow lower prices. I wonder why that one isn't still listed on Tripadvisor...
That was the first "Marakesh - named" restaurant visited in KL and i think i'm gonna stick back to it.

Great food for a great price. Every time I visit KL I stop here for a meal.

My only excuse was that it was on the way back from the hotel and I was starving. I had a lamb "sandwich" which was pretty awful. Staff were nice but they couldn't save the expereience because the food was just soooo bad. I basically left half the plate, paid and walked out.

Its on Bukit Bintang opposite Farenheit shopping mall... near Piccolo hotel. Do yourself a favour and grab a pack of anything from 7/11 next door - it will be better than this place.
