A Wandsworth Moroccan that acquired fame by being featured on Gordon Ramsay's 'The F Word.'
This still-popular Wandsworth Moroccan rose to something approaching prominence when it was a finalist on Gordon Ramsay's F-Word, back at the end of the last century. It looks like they're still doing things right, with its authentic takes on traditional Moroccan dishes continuing to draw the crowds.
The menu ranges from mezze such as fatoush salad, falafel, halloumi, merguez sausages and houmous to kebabs cooked on the grill, various tagines and wraps, salads, sandwiches and soups with a Middle Eastern bent. Keep an eye out for lunch specials and good value set menus.
Although baklawa features, the dessert selection moves away from the Middle East to offer British favourites such as bread and butter pudding. There’s a short cocktail list, too.

I went here after seeing that it had been on The F Word and loved it (so much so, I persuaded passer bys to come in!). I really liked the fact that the owner said hello to every table and made sure everything was ok and all the staff were really nice. All of the food was amazing and I would definitely go again.
Great food, great service and erally good value for money. Highly recommend it even for larger groups.
I would have to disagree with this review wholeheartedly. Without blasting the critic, I have to say to compare any restaurant to Gordon Ramsay is a disgrace, simply because anything done by Gordon Ramsay is typical, unoriginal and overrated. With that said, let me be the first to leave an honest and beneficial review based on things that matter to a consumer. Doukan is simple, understated and a genuine delight in London altogether. Want a well made Moorish smoothie? The Doukan has you covered, you won't find over blended ice smoothies that taste more like water than anything fresh and delicious, instead, you will be treated to a thick, creamy and actual smoothie. Why focus on a smoothie at a Moroccan restaurant when it offers substantial quality dishes that delight the tongue and enchant you with flavor? Not only this, but also yes, it is in a well decorated, ethnically delightful setting that is warm and colourful. Wednesday nights there is even live jazz, but unfortunately the previous review didn't provide any of this information as they cut themselves and you as well short. If you are looking for a distinct and original restaurant that will treat you to a enjoyable evening out with your friends or significant other, I personally encourage you to give the Doukan a try as it is ten fold better than neighboring restaurants, especially those of Gordon Ramsay.
