Loved Ayoush. We were seated downstairs in one of the "caves"- the best thing about Ayoush is the atmosphere and friendly service from the staff. Live music & belly dancing too- perfect for a birthday or special occasion.

I booked on bookatable.com and phoned later to add an extra person, and told it was all ok. Then later found out I had no booking as I booked on an "external website" and I just spoke to a waiter when I phoned, so apparently the mix up was my fault. I suggest ayoush take the bookatable.com link off their... More

I went to eat at this restaurant since it was close to my hotel and it was always full. The food was average and the staff was so nasty that I'll never go back there. I just don't understand why this place is so popular. I believe that the customers should be treated with respect.

Pros: Amazing food and amazing service. We had the hummus appetizer, which came with exceptional fresh bread; chicken tagine with lemon; lamb tagine; and some cocktails. All were perfect. Servings were big enough that I had some lamb for lunch the next day. The staff were friendly, attentive, and careful about my food allergies. The prices were very reasonable for... More

I went to Ayoush the other night with a friend for some late night hookah and drinks, after seeing it earlier in the week while at Patty & Bun. The biggest standout was the service, everyone there was eager to help, friendly and respectful. The drinks were very good and the hookah smoked great.

Went there last night for my sisters birthday dinner and had a great time. The service was excellent. All the staff were attentive and polite. There was nothing they wouldn't do for us. Plenty of drinks and the food was excellent. For entertainment there was a traditional north african drummer and a belly dancer. They were both excellent and got... More

I booked a table for me and my fiancee on his birthday. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff was very friendly and professional, prompt service and good atmosphere. The the best part of the night was the surprise cake that I had ordered for him and which was delivered to the restaurant. They made sure the cake is properly... More

Happened to have dinner at the restaurant last night. The taste was really authentic even though i was not able to choose from the whole list of dishes as they were not available. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Rather pricy but i guess you can expect this given the location.
