In London's Notting Hill you can eat food from virtually any country you care to mention. If you’re in the mood for authentic Moroccan cuisine then pass beneath the colourful arches of Sahara Restaurant and into the warmth of this traditional Southern Moroccan restaurant. Bright yellow banquette seating catches the eye, as do little lanterns illuminating sandblasted walls. But it’s Sahara Restaurant's food that really shines out; homemade meat, fish and vegetable tagines are cooked with real skill and affection. Moroccan dishes aren’t simple; the balance of powerful spices such as cinnamon and saffron not easily achieved. The night starts well - you’re served hot fresh bread with a small bowl of olive oil, marinated olives and homemade harissa – and just gets better.
