Came for a meal with five friends to Ayoush for the first time recently. Staff were extremely attentive and ensured that everything was okay throughout our meal! Lovely house wine. Had the chicken tagine with cous cous- lovely flavours, just could have done with more veg but nonetheless, still delicious! Lovely meal though and extraordinary staff :) Thanks!

Cool middle eastern restaurant. Very good dishes...tajines were very tasty (lamb, chicken and veggies)...desert was flawless. Very friendly waiters and staff. Will come back if in the area. Only drawbacks were: 1- cold inside ... Why they kept the main door open with freezing temperature outside is beyond me; 2- some wait time to get the accompanying veggies; 3- no... More

One of the few Moroccan restaurants in London offering really good choice of food and drinks. Their couscous is delicious, all sorts of meat are available. If you feel particularly hungry, go for mixed grill which is apart from being tasty, comes at a reasonable price. The cocktail list is pretty standard, the choice of wine, on the other hand,...

we popped in for lunch on a Saturday. Cous Cous dishes were lovely. Tender lamb, chicken and mezze were delicious. Friendly service and good location for the shops and Marleybone station.

Lovely cocktails, charming waiters. However, running out of wine, cramped environment & tired decor, forgetting our starter then telling us 20 minutes later that it wasn't available, random belly dancing show with someone coming out to play the drums incredibly loudly so that conversation became impossible and being hit on the head by a waiter wildly whirling around in a...

Went here for dinner. Decor is beautiful. Friend and I both had tasty vegetable dishes but lamb looked amazing. Staff were very attentive- moving us to another table at our request and looking after us. Definitely want to Go here again.

The main dining room is small though and for some reasons the outside doors are left open allowing a draft to come through. in addition at our... More

Wasn't quite sure what to expect before I went here, but I was pleasantly surprised! Met up with a friend on a Friday night. We sat downstairs first and enjoyed a cocktail. The cocktails are fantastic and the bar staff very friendly. After a leisurely drink we were shown upstairs to our table. The restaurant was packed, and tables very... More
