The food is all very fresh tasting at this dining location and absolutely delicious. The portion sizes are also quite generous. The Mara offers an extensive menu list for each type of meal, with lunch and dinner both identical menus other than the roasted chicken meal that is only served after 5PM. There is something for everyone, as the menu is mostly American based with subtle African flavors in some of the entrees. The bacon cheeseburger, for example, was very subtly seasoned berber spice that gave it just a little hint of uniqueness compared to a standard American burger, but mild enough any picky eater would still enjoy it.
