My boyfriend and I had a lovely evening at Ayoush, particularly thanks to the wonderful staff. They were all friendly, extremely attentive and had good recommendations. Our waiter, Khaled, ensured we had a great time and got to try a nice mix of different foods, with even some complimentary extras from the house. We really enjoyed both the food and... More

I have been to many shisha places in London: Edgware road, Momo, Drunch etc., however I finally found the best service, food and Shisha in Ayoush...you dont need to travel to north Africa or Middle East to feel the spirit or the arabic hospitality, the staff members supervised with Mr Mido will provide all that in the center of London....

Where to start? Ayoush is simply excellent! its food is authentically Moroccan and with that comes the bust of flavour and spices associated with the North African gem. The tagine is probably among the best you'll find in London and the rest of the menu doesn't disappoint either. The outdoor seating is a little small but none the less still... More

Me and my friend have been going to Ayoush in St Chridtophers Square for a good year and have never had a bad time. The drinks, especially the Tonic Brunch, are amazing! The service is friendly and welcoming, and they have come to know us well. By far one of the nicest Shisha bars in the area .. Worth checking... More

I went to Ayoush for my 30th and had a great time. The staff were very attentive and ensured we all had what we needed. The food was amazing and my guests and I felt truly welcomed. Many thanks to the general manager Milo and his entire staff members. I missed the belly dancing which I was really looking forward... More

i took my wife for a luchtime mezzi and main and really had a great time. the service was particulary good. Attentive and professional throughout. Fod was excellent. Nice to finish the afternoon with a sheesha but at £20.00 a pipe that was too much. half the price would have been better!

My sister and I took our dad here for lunch on Fathers Day...we had been wandering around St Christopher's Place looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled across this little gem. We tried the tagine and the chicken skewers. The food was tasty, the chicken succulent and the lamb just fell off the bone. The service was great. The staff... More
