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
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
We travelled all the way from Leicester and it was really amazing. The food was really nice and fantastic as was the entertainment. I wish Maroush opens one branch in the Midlands.
Awful dirty restaurant with rude and arrogant staff. Very unwelcoming, and told me to I was not allowed to carry my own water bottle on the restaurant floor. The venue also smelt and there was no atmosphere.
Very good food and atmosphere. They dealt with our big party expertly and with friendly service. We’d all come back again
We. Hide your restaurant by looking online and were not disappointed in any way at all. We have already recommended you to our friends. The live music was excellent.
Lovely food and friendly service, however although they had great live entertainment, it was intrusive and therefore uncomfortable throughout our meal. We are mother and daughter and were out for dinner and conversation, which was disrupted by fear of a singer and belly dancer coming to invade our time with inappropriate particiapation. This was unnecessary as the entertainment was good and would have been enjoyed at a distance.
Delicious food. Great entertainment
Wonderful food an atmosphere on what was a very busy night for the hard-working staff. Thank you so much for a great experience. We will definitely be back.
The food and the service were great! I joked a few times with the waiter. We were sitting downstairs near the toilets. I would have preferred to be sitting near the stage where they have live entertainment, but that's fine. The belly dancing was fun.
We were a group of people in their mid 30s who always enjoyed some live entertainment. However, our evening in Maroush wasn't enjoyable, the music was extremely loud, just as if we were in a club, making any conversation impossible. one of my friends seating in front of me had to TEXT me instead!!!! Food was in general delicious but there was a misunderstanding with the order, missing one plate and bringing another we didn't order. Also the entertainment was not truly Lebanese, the first act was purely old English songs and the belly dance was dancing to a mix of pop music
Good quality food, good portion sizes. Not too pricey.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening – great hospitality and food
very hospitable and friendly staff !
Exceptional food good service
The service is terrible and the waiters are a joke. When we got there they demanded that everyone did the set meny or at least one appetiser and one main course. The original entertainment was really bad too with a lady with a half decent voice singing songs like "my heart will go on" and "I will always love you", but the food is great and it's plenty of it and the entertainment got better with the Arabic music and the belly dancers.
Atmosphere was quiet but that was only because we had an early dinner.
Service was slow even though the place was empty. Chef forgot to put the bread under my Shwarma. If I am paying top dollar I expect impeccable service. Customer should have option to refuse service charge.
Lovely food and great entertainment. Unfortunately the beer was not great ( one glass was completely flat, another tasted like the dregs of the barrel and not a pint but smaller glasses) and the Lebanese beer was unavailable.
