Harden's survey result
“Fabulous Maray never disappoints” – whether you head to this “packed” and “buzzing” outpost (est. 2014), or the equally popular offshoots in Allerton and the Royal Albert Dock. Inspired by the kind of food found in the Marais in Paris, it serves “interesting and inspiring” Middle Eastern small plates (“with a focus on vegetarian dishes”), and the end result is “a great experience” according to its army of fans.
This “excellent, innovative independent on trendy Bold Street” is inspired by the North African/Middle Eastern cuisine found in the Marais district of Paris and “trying hard to be trendy like Ottolenghi”. The place is “very buzzy”, with “fantastic small plates”, “great wine and cocktails” – and it’s “brilliant value”. “Good idea to book as it gets very busy”.
“Often-unusual combinations of ingredients in small dishes” (it’s slightly “hard to define the cooking style”, but it’s somewhat Ottolenghi-esque) creates “a yearning to keep on returning” to this “lively”, “truly unique and impressive” city-centre cocktail bar/tapas café. It has a new Allerton Street spin-off now too, “frequented by ladies-who-lunch”.
Comparisons with London’s Palomar and Ottolenghi crop up in reports on this “very noisy, crowded and tightly packed” member of the Bold Street scene (“advertised as a cocktail bar, but the food’s the best bit”). All feedback says its “eclectic” sharing plates of “unusual Middle-Eastern-leaning, seasonal food” are a wow! “Not since Paddy and Dave opened the Everyman Theatre Bistro in 1968 has Liverpool seen a more exciting development in its restaurant scene!”
Maray Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Buzzy little restaurant in central Liverpool. Inventive flavours and good portion sizes for the sharing plates. I always make time to come here when I'm in Liverpool, and it never disappoints."
