About Maroush 21 Edgware Road
The original Maroush restaurant, opened by Marouf Abouzaki more than 20 years ago, this Edgware Road staple is even more popular today than it was back then.
A lively, two-floor restaurant capable of seating more than 150 guests at a time, Maroush Edgware Road features a casual sit-down area on the main floor, and a larger dining room in the basement. Popular with families earlier in the evening, the crowd changes over to a younger set as the night wears on.
One of the two Maroush outlets featuring live Lebanese music and belly dancing in the evenings, the atmosphere at Maroush Edgware Road is upbeat and energetic through to closing time
Very poor service, was first to arrive in the restaurant but the manager gave us table which was towards the end, the food was below average and service was poor. We will not be visiting this place anytime soon.
we had to ask to change tables 3 times, first because of the strong air conditioning, then because of the unbearable loud music, then because of the smell coming from the toilets. Food was average quality considering the reputation of the place and service was disappointing, simply careless.
Food was fresh, delicious and plentiful, we’ll definitely return. We ate very early, 5pm so not many people dining hence lack of atmosphere at that time.
I am sorry to say that we were quite disappointed with our visit to your restaurant this time. Whenever we come to London from Gloucester, we do make a point in booking a table with you as we have always enjoyed the service and atmosphere, however, things seem to have changed and the service was appalling. Nobody came to check if we were ok. The entertainment has definitely gone downhill. Previous visits included belly dancer and singers and usually went on after 11.00! Needless to say we will probably take our business elsewhere next time we are I. London. Disappointed.
Food was delicious. It was lunchtime so not many people there and not anyone's fault there wasn't much atmosphere.
Booked on Maroush website for Xmas lunch. It was accepted and I received email from the restaurant confirming the reservation. They also insisted on credit cards details that I supplied. I went to the restaurant on Xmas eve to see what table they were going to give us. Was told by the man at the till all reservations was going to be cancelled as they were full. He said the manager will call me when he gets in after 5pm on Xmas eve. I called back and was assured he will call. It is now boxing day and I am still waiting for the call. Ruined our Xmas lunch. Disgusting. I have been going to their restaurants for 30 years. Never again.
You pay the London prices for food and the quantity per serving is moderate
We had a wonderful time for a staff Christmas dinner, the food was excellent - service was accommodating and friendly. We had a great time. Will be back again.
Apart from a few errors on the invoice (had to resent the invoice twice as was charged for items not on the order list); the food and atmosphere was amazing. Live performances we exceptional and Staff welcoming and friendly.
Particular must-eats are the hummus, falafel, rice dishes, and grilled meats. The staff were friendly and professional and made us very welcome. Live music was as great as entertainment. As we had not been to this restaurant before. To finish we were presented with a huge fruit bowl containing pineapple, melon, apples. We felt welcomed and would return again.
On entering the sitting area I was told by one of the waitress that I could not stay for the entertainment starting at 9 as I had a baby with me. However I had informed the restaurant at the time of reservation that I will have a baby in a pram with me.
We had originally booked for the Maroush 21 Edgware Rd restaurant however when we arrived they said they were closed due to a gas/ electricity problem- which was fair enough. So we went to the Maroush Gardens and it was terrible. The service was awful- we had to pretty much wait for drinks, food came at odd times and they seemed to just forget about us. Food was nice however but feel like we may have ordered incorrectly! They also just never brought any drinks for us at one stage. I have eaten at the Kensington restaurant by Maroush and that was great! I would not recommend the Gardens one though. Such a blot on the restaurant chain.
Very good food
Had a lovely time really good food and big portions! Staff were very welcoming.
Wonderful atmosphere, with fantastic service. My only critique would be the wine list, more variation by the glass, and the baby chicken, far too much salt, I couldn't eat it. I didn't mention this to our waiter as everything else was lovely and i didn't want to ruin the evening.
Good food. The service was impeccable. We'll be back.
Some food was good, other parts of the meal were distinctly average - e.g the lamb stew with vegetables was very bland and expensive for what it was. We had to wait a long tome for the drinks to arrive when we first arrived. One of the menus we were given had food on it. I think it shows a lack of care by staff and management Singer and belly dancer were great.
Food was delicious and staff very helpful and friendly. Thank you.
the place and the food was stunning. In my opinion it is a bit overpriced, but overall a good experience.
We ordered four starters and four mains. Three starters arrived and we were told that one was unavailable “would you like to choose something else?” Of the other three, two were disappointing - no dressing or bulgar wheat with the Tabbouleh, just a pile of parsley with a little tomato, and the beans in the Loubieh B’zeit we’re over cooked and tasteless. Of the mains, the Roast Lamb seemed to be marinated in nothing and was totally tasteless. It appeared to have been boiled rather than roasted and had nothing to recommend it at all. The spicy Kafteh of lamb was passable but didn’t deserve the warning about the heat of the spices. The yoghurt kafteh was, apparently, tastier, but looked like no kafteh I had seen before. The mixed grill was average but the accompanying french fries were not good. Presentation was generally dreadful. The method of cramming the food onto smaller than average plates to make portions appear larger doesn’t fool anyone. The overly loud music didn’t help the atmosphere. And the low ceilinged room in the basement was too dark and depressing to be comfortable. An expensive and poor meal. Not something I would care to experience again.
Not a busy time when we went but the menu is limited if you choose to sit downstairs which has more seating and was more suited for us with two little children. The food was decent - i only found the grilled lamb a little bit chewy which surprising for me a little bit as i have always had very good grilled food in lebanese and persian restuarants of repute. Service was very good, with the staff being extreely helpful and acoomidating as best as they could. They also have a music area for live performances which is only open in the evengings but is definitey a good place for a night out.
Loved the food and the belly dance show! The music was a tad bit too loud at times but would definitely come back!
Extremely fun and different experience to your normal dinner out! Not a sit down and chat dinner rather live music and belly dancing but very fun for the odd occasion! Food and alcohol very reasonably priced for the area
Food was pretty poor. I had the chicken stew which was very bland.
My wife and I had a very good dining experience - from the initial warm welcome, good advice on what to select and a complementary fruit and sweets at the end. Excellent quality of food and service means we would happily return often and get to know the full menu! Thanks Paul
