We called in without a reservation this evening and were found a table despite it being fairly well booked out. The food and service were very good, the ambience very welcoming and the staff all very friendly. Good value for money in the middle of London, recommended for one and all.

Nicest Moroccan food I have ever tried. Prices were reasonable considering the quality of the dishes. Menu not extensive but is well thought out and there were plenty of things I could have eaten. My veg tagine was delicately spiced and really good, as was my wife's chicken and fresh fig salad. Staff were friendly and helpful, and were happy... More

We were in London to meet up with friends and celebrate several 50th Birthdays and a 52nd Birthday, so we chose this restaurant for our dinner on Saturday night. Made reservations and got there early and no issues, we were ushered right in. Our waitress was on top of things and very friendly and polite. We all ordered appetizers to... More

Ayoush has the most beautiful setting, but appalling when a large group wants to pay. We also had to suffer with one of the rudest waitress I have ever encountered. She kept interrupting and making rude remarks in our conversations. It's a shame as it was a beautiful place, but would not recommend to anyone else due to the waitresses... More

This venue is beautiful, & the belly dancer fantastic, however it is a shame that the meals are so pricey & having said that roughly £14 on shish taouk - 3 skewers & bowl of rice, the rice wasn't nice so I paid £14 for chicken skewers?! Another in my party just didnt get their starter until the main this... More

Staff were really friendly and service was fast. Food was excellent. I recommend a visit on Tagine Tuesdays! There's plenty to visit around the restaurant once you're finished too, great location.

We had a great time for our office outing, they have great selection of gin based cocktails and great food in particular Tianjin braised lamb. the only doenfall was that we were about 20 people and had to split between two tables, luckly there were close butwe still played musical chairs to mix the teams.

We ended a couple of weeks in Europe with a night in London, meeting a friend for dinner. We strolled neighborhoods near our hotel, just talking, until it was time to eat, and stumbled across Ayoush. Being lovers of North African cuisine, it was a happy find. We were seated outside, which we enjoyed. Service was average. The staff seemed... More

We booked a table for two online via their website because we read existing good reviews about this restaurant. The location is great. It is close to the tube. Lots of bars and restaurants in the same lively area. We arrived slightly earlier hoping to smoke some sheesha (again after reading good reviews). The lady with the blond hair who... More
