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.

Have been here a few times. The food is beautiful. Large portions and all beautifully flavoured. IT cosy and your sat very close to neighbouring tables, but the this adds to the experience. 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

I went there for lunch today and found the Lamb Tagine overpoweringly salty, not a pleasant experience food wise at all, nothing like the tangines I've had in Morocco,the rice did not seem very fresh and seemed to have been warmed up in a microwave,would not go back

I went to celebrate a friends birthday on the 12th November 2014 with a big group of friends. What can I say, we had a super fantastic time at this amazing restaurant which served delicious food especially the Lamb Tagine :-) We sat downstairs as we had a few tables reserved, the setting was just brilliant.
