MAROUSH is a restaurant located on the second floor of Crowne Plaza Hotel. This Morrocan themed restaurant serves Middle Eastern cuisines like Indian, Moroccan, and the lastest one, Turkish. MAROUSH is also complemented with a Champagne Bar and Sheesha Lounge.
Every side of MAROUSH is filled with furnitures and decorations those were brought straight from Morocco. There are also some private rooms those can be used for meetings and private parties. Earthy color tone, beautifully engraved Moroccan furniture, accompanied by traditional Moroccan decorations such as paintings, lamps, clothing, even traditional Moroccan weapons, it was like flying to Morocco to enjoy lunch,

Those menus are available for appetizers at MAROUSH. My personal favorite was the Feta Spinach Borek - crispy, cheesy, savoury - the kind of dish that could never go wrong.
|Firindra Ezmeli Balik|
Fillet of marinated fish pan fried with ezme sauce, sauteed vegetables, cheddar cheese.
|Feslegenli Patlican Sarmasi|
Fried eggplant parcels with sauteed vegetables and fresh basil.
|Lamb Shank Cous Cous|
Wood-fire oven cooked lamb shank served with cous-cous and cobain salatasi.
Grilled lamb fillet marinated overnight, stuffed in wood-fire oven bread mixed with lettuce, sumac, onion salad, garlic sauce.
|Chicken Lemon and Olives|
Chicken pieces braised with spice, garlic, onion, olives, lemon cooked in tagine (claypot dish used for slow cooking food with no oil & water - preserving all the juices and nutrients of meat & vegetables).
Rice, safron, carrot, paprika, onion.
Of all the main courses above, nothing failed my tongue. The Firindra Ezmeli Balik (fish menu) was really nice and delicious, the Feslegenli Patlican Sarmasi (eggplant menu) was also superb, I'm not really into eggplant but this dish won my toungue. The Lamb Shank also was super tender fir it was cooked for 8 hours.
Layers of filo pastry, butter, pistachio - baked sweetened with homemade syrup and honey.
Wood-fire oven baked creamy cold rice pudding.
The dessert menus were also nice!
I think MAROUSH is a wonderful place to have your Middle Eastern dining experience. About pricing, I assume that you should expect to spend around 500K++ for two persons.
