Le Dragon D'Or, Marrakesh: 2 reviews and 5 photos
I ate at Le Dragon D'Or Vietnamese restaurant one evening during my visit to Marrakech in February 2007.
This was the only Asian restaurant that I saw during my stay in the city, but I did note from my guidebook that there are Indian and Thai restaurants in Marrakech.
Le Dragon D'Or is located on Boulevard Zerktouni in the modern Gueliz region of the city, just a couple of minutes walk east of Ave Mohamed V. It is approximately 25 minutes walk from Djemaa El Fna square.
By Moroccan standards, this is an expensive restaurant. Consequently, the only people dining there when I visited were tourists, not locals.
The restaurant has a handful of tables in an outdoor courtyard and a large interior.
The menu is available in French, Arabic and English and my waiter spoke English fluently.
Starters include a selection of soups (30 - 50 Dhs) vegetable, meat and shrimp spring rolls (50 - 60 Dhs) and salads.
Main courses are quite expensive, ranging from 70 - 160 Dhs, with the higher prices being for seafood stir fries. The selection was pretty standard for this kind of restaurant: various beef, chicken, seafood and duck stir fries and curries, including ingredients such as pineapple, ginger sauce, sweet and sour sauce, cashew nuts, and a number of fried rice and noodle dishes.
There are no pork dishes sold here and there is no vegetarian section on the menu.
After 4 days in Marrakech, this was the first place that I visited that served alcohol. The menu includes a variety of cocktails, red and white wines and three choices of bottled beer (the local Flag Speciale, Heineken and Bud).
Favorite Dish: I opted for:
Prawn crackers and side dishes - Cost: Complimentary
I received a complimentary bowl of prawn crackers and a plate of spicy carrot, cabbage and cucumber.
Shrimp spring rolls - Cost: 55 Dhs
3 very tasty spring rolls filled with small shrimps, seaweed and vegetables. Served with salad, a spicy seafood dip and a bowl of steamed white rice.
Chicken with Chinese noodles - Cost: 75 Dhs
A plate of very tasty thin rice noodles (similar to "Supernoodles" from a packet, and I don't mean that in a bad way) and dozens of pieces of good quality, well cooked chicken and mushrooms. The portion wasn't huge but it was enough to satisfy.
2 bottles of Flag Speciale beer - Cost: 25 Dhs per 330ml bottle
The beer tasted like nectar after 4 tee total days in Marrakech!
Good quality Asian food in a touristy restaurant. Far more expensive than local options, but a nice change from the local cuisine. Highly recommended!
