This down-to-earth Middle Eastern restaurant near Charlotte Street is always filled with an eclectic mix of Londoners and tourists kicking up their heels in true Morrocan style. Conveniently located for the West End's abundance of bars and theatres, La Menara is a fun place for celebrations and birthdays. Decorated with deep red and salmon pink walls and blue velvet chairs, the restaurant is renowned for its friendly staff and bellydancers, and favourite dishes from the menu include the Tagine Lahem Belbarkouk – lamb cooked in a terra cotta clay pot with prunes; the Chicken Bastilla – a chicken pie with almonds, herbs, saffron and eggs; and the Menara Brochettes – skewers of meat marinated and served with Moroccan salad and rice.
