I dived into this restaurant for a quick meal before a West End show and was not prepared for the fun, authentic and delicious dining experience that awaited me.
Shake off the dreary grey cobbles on London and into the heart of a Moroccan souk, with cushions, drapes, curtains and incense; the atmosphere excites you for the great food you can smell cooking away. With a Tastecard, you can get half price of their set menu which allows you to sample the best of Moroccan cooking, from (di)vine leaves, falafafel and creamy houmous with grilled pittas to start, to an array of tagines to follow. What is great about the tagines is that they all taste very distinctive, from the fruity, rich lamb to the spicy fresh chickpea, you can pick out all the flavours and spices which the chefs have taken so long to incorporate.
The service is a little slow (a bit of a worry if you have a show to see), but very friendly and aim to enhance your experience with their grace and knowledge of the menu. I have heard that a bellydancer performs on some evenings, so I will definitely be returning to add some sequins to my shish kebab
