Once you step foot into Makla, you feel yourself being transported to Morocco. Colourful bags and silver teapots line the high ceilings, give you an impression of being in a busling Souk. The atmosphere is of a relaxed and fun dining experience, guests are given a warm welcome and are invited to join in with the fun atmosphere. Fez hats are offered to wear and staff will happily take a souvenir photo. Makla offer a range of drinks, from authentic Moroccan tea to our own recipe flavoured alcoholic cocktails. Gluten free and Vegan diets are catered for - just ask the service staff for advice on the menu, we are here to ensure that you are looked after. Makla Menu has a range of Mezze dishes which can be shared or you can choose one of our Traditional flavoured Tagines. Grills are also offered on the menu, juicy cuts of meat which are chargrilled to perfection. Booking is recommended during the weekends, however we will still try our best to cater for walk - ins, even if we are full.

    It was a relatively quiet night so there were many free tables, but I rather prefer it like that. The tables are a little bit small if there are 4 people dining - food and drinks, and the wooden chairs not so comfortable at the end of an hours sitting time but over all the food was good, and plenty to to fill a hungry male, and the welcome warm and authentic.

    The last time at Makla I rated all at 10/10 This experience was very different. The food ok but not as good as had tagine. A large noisy party arrived and were sat right in middle upstairs. I had to leave as they were so noisy and rude. Leaning on our table to take selfies and scraping chairs on floor. Felt really uncomfortable.

    This was our third visit and unfortunately the service was was really bad. Staff were friendly but there was clearly something going wrong, and not just for us. It was one thing after another. They did apologise at the end but it was embarrassing at times. Very unfortunate but hopefully a one off.

    Enjoyed our evening at Makla. The food was tasty. The music got a bit ‘dramatic’ so we asked for it to be changed which the staff happily did so. I’d definitely return.

    A lovely evening at Makla. Moroccan food with a nod to British culture. Loved the lamb shank tagine, the meat was so tender, absolutely delicious! Would definitely return.
