Came at the weekend during the Classic Boat Rally only to find all shut up and empty. I understood this was part of the restaurant group including Zucca, Asia Chic and Rocco y Lola. I knew that the Fish Market restaurant was closed by them a year or two ago but thought the rest were still active. Maybe the other... More

we visited The Souk for my father's birthday and it did not disappoint. We ordered 6 mezze and a mixed grill to share between 3 people. Fantastic value for money in my opinion, every dish had unique flavours that have completely altered my perspective on food. The atmosphere was lovely and the service very friendly, even more so because we... More

First time we've been here. Went for a joint birthday. Cosy little restaurant with friendly staff. The meze was very nice and good value at £20 for 6 meze and a bottle of wine. The main course,whilst very large, was not as flavoursome as one would expect from Moroccan food, in fact it was rather bland. We did tell the... More

This place is small but cosy, food was ok, ambience was good. Went there for lunch and dinner on a few occasions. Taste wise provided us with a nice change to morrocon food. Have not eaten here recently though.

Love this place. The higgledy piggledy array of colourful fabrics, Moroccan lanterns & hookahs; the fabulous smells & the wonderful foods! Good variety of choices for vegetarians, great waiting staff & a lovely atmosphere that brought back happy holiday memories! Highly recommended, been back several times already & WILL return again. Try the Arak liquor - phew!!! :)

Went for a meal with my husband and chose dishes off the mezze, overall very good, food tasty some better value than others. The scallops very tasty but 3 tiny scallops for £4.95 a little too much really. Would go again.

My wife and I went with another couple. We were all impressed. Excellent service, good ambiance, comfortable furnishings / tables, and great food. The Souk allowed us to opt for the £25- per head meal deal, normally reserved for groups of 6+. Good value, with a huge amount of delicious food and so much variety, although it does add up... More
