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


Step into Marrakech in the heart of the beautiful Covent Garden. I adore this place! I went here not long ago to celebrate my sisters 18th birthday. 

The food is reasonably priced, between a group of 8 we spent just over £20 a head including the electric shisha we ordered. I opted for the lamb steak, deliciously marinated and for just £10.95 it was quite a sizable slab of meat. Our waitress was speedy, efficient and very helpful, most of the dishes were thoroughly explained, our table was attended to swiftly and overall the service was spot on.

A belly dancer performed around 8pm for 15mins, which got us off our chairs and dancing along.

This place pretty much has it all, authenticity, Shisha, Belly dancing, really great service and delicious tastes of the Mediterranean.

Went to this restaurant with a large group of friends on a Saturday night. Would definitely recommend a visit, upon entering you become immersed into a small part of Morocco hidden away in Covent Garden. The busy atmosphere is great, waiting staff are very attentive and efficient and the sharing platters and menus are great value and tasty.
