The atmosphere was really good, the dark colored waiter very friendly and thoughtful. The only thing was that the choice wine was a bit to much pushed. Normally we get a wine-card and we can study it quietly. The moment the bottle of Spanish was opened I was thinking about the fact there where Moroccan wines at the list as well, and our intention was we wanted to try these. That start made it a bit less smart. For the rest everything was great!

I love this place tucked just off Regent Street in the Hendon Street development. The have some great indoor and outdoor eating space, all looks and feels very North African/ Mediterranean authentic. Unlike some of the other reviews for the restaurant I have always found the service to be very attentive and friendly, the host on this occasion Miriam could not have been more chatty and welcoming. Food was as always excellent, the grills and meze options are my favourites. Will definitely be returning soon.

I was disappointed with all the menu restrictions. No lunch menu on a Saturday, no willingness to make cream tea as a dessert because that was on the Afternoon Tea menu. All you need to do is cut a scone in half! I was expecting access to more of your lovely mezze but we had to stick to a particular menu. This lack of flexibility spoilt the experience a little.

Nice restaurant but seats are just too squeezed together

My lamb tagine was nice but rather sweet- clearly not cooked to order as arrived 1 minute after ordering and before the wine arrived

Fantastic decor and concept, really does feel special, unfortunately service has some catching up to do. I’ve never seen that many people standing around observing the restaurant and that little attention to guests. We were three sat at a tiny corner table, some of our food had been taken before it was finished (happened so quickly I didn’t realise!!), and at the end we sat empty handed waiting to be offered dessert / coffee / more wine for 20 minutes (we were only offered at the point of asking for the bill). Food was lovely, the lamb tagine was really to die for, some dishes quite small, but I can get over that. Overall glad I checked it out but unlikely to return.

I mean this is just Ok, nothing to rave about or go out of your way to book. Food was Okay, dessert was meh, drinks were Ok. One thing that is weird is that the toilets have a conjoined sink for both the genders so while I was in the women's I heard a man go to the loo and then saw him not wash his hands as the sinks are joint- so weird, what a poor design choice.

Used to be great in the past. Food was delicious and it was authentic Moroccan. Now the menu has changed and recipes are not as traditional anymore. As a Moroccan I am not impressed, you pay much for non authentic food. Won't be coming here for food anymore. It is however a great restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and excellent customer service.

I was very disappointed that they were using the wrong type of couscous...(they were using a very fine one normally used for dessert couscous) and it really tasted wrong. The sauce itself wasn’t that savory either. I haven’t been there in a long while but I remember the food was quite good. I hope it s just a one off.

Hi Amber Thank you for your feedback. I had a quick chat with our kitchen and they explained that the semolina thickness is different from Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia and even in each country from one region to another, but we've also been using the same coucous for the last 22 years. We have been using the fine one as we believe it is the best way to taste the couscous. Kind regards D.

First visit to this restaurant, which we were apprehensive about being vegetarian - but made very welcome by all staff and felt comfortable straight away. There are a number of vegetarian options for starters and a few for mains which was great as we ordered different food and could taste each others (we often have to order the same thing as there is no real choice). Service was very very good, ever present but not in your face which is often difficult to achieve. We opted for cocktails over wine, which were very good and we finished with mint tea which was so much nicer than I thought it would be - if you're going, get it, you won't be disappointed. Food came up quickly and the portion size was a little small but did mean that I could have 3 courses as I'm often too full to have a dessert. That said, I though dessert was the weakest course. I had carrot cake which I was expecting to be full of spices, but was a little bland. My husband had the pastries (similar to baklava) and they were amazing so get those. All in all a good night. Not cheap, but then nothing is in London. We both enjoyed the meal and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Especially as I know that there are other dishes we can try!

Friendly but tardy service - we weren't offered drinks for simply ages and had to ask for them in the end despite the restaurant not being full. I was told that the main course of the Lamb Tagine came with vegetables and then just as they were about to serve it they said the menu had changed and it no longer came with veg by which time it was too late to order anything else so I was just served a great hunk of meat with a small piece of pear ontop - the meat was succulent but the dish needed an accompaniment and had little spicing to it . The Couscous with the 3 meats dish was little better , the meats were all dry especially the chicken piece which was unpalatable . The starter of the chicken livers was OK and the the quail Pastilla was tasty but did not resemble an authentic pastille in any way . The desserts were the only dishes of any merit - the chocolate one and the lemon tart were outstanding . Finally the noise level was very high so it was difficult to hear ourselves talk despite the restaurant not being full. Altogether a very disappointing visit - we will not be going again.

Le couscous était bon, mais sans être excellent. Le carrot cake restructuré était, par contre, formidable. Côté boissons, le gin tonic avait un drôle de goût (sans être mauvais), ceci sans doute dû aux choix du gin. Vin correct et excellent thé à la menthe. Pour nous faire patienter, un alcool de figue nous a été proposé : fort mais bon. Nous avons apprécié le geste.
Rien à dire sur le service qui fut excellent. Quant au décor, nous avons aimé le côté sobre et les couleurs des sièges. Au final, belle soirée dans un cadre raffiné.

We were here for dinner on a Saturday evening.
The food was very good (especially the lamb shoulder for 2 ppl), we also loved the drinks, the only note is that the service - which was good - was quite slow (after the starters, we waited 50 mins for the mains).
Good overall, I would suggest it.

I went to momo quite few times , I used to love that place because it is the only presentable North African place that I know in London. That s where I take my European friends to introduce to them our cuisine ( I m from Algeria) ... this is the first time i decided to spend ramadan in London, and I was counting on breaking my fast most of the time chez momo , since my fiancée works hard and she lives in another City , I only see her the weekends and therefore I will not be cooking ....anyway , yesterday was second time breaking my fast there and I took my fiancée with me this time , and the experience was awfully horrible ! As much as I enjoy the food and the ambiance there , the service made me decide to never put my feet there again . We fasted all day , and we booked a table at 8:30 which is 10mn before iftar , once there , we waited until 9:10 to have a waiter , not even water , milk or dates on the table . We have asked 3 times , kept trying to get attention nothing ... at some point it was literally frustrating Almost disrespectful ! We felt like we were begging for food ! It was so bad , imagine waiting for 40mn then they bring to you two dates and one glass of milk ! And the service went that way during the whole thing , we needed a second bottle of water and we had to ask 3 times, I asked for some more milk and have been told that it meant to be one glass each !! it’s shameful ! Not only they should have felt sorry for the wait and the fact they only brought one glass of milk for two people , but most importantly , i m paying for this meal , and I eat whatever and however my money allows , we not begging ! We had the ramadan menu , and we spent 2 hours there just for starter and main , and we had to give up on dessert and tea because it took so long and we hated the place ...honestly just thinking about the experience we had makes me frustrated ! Literally made me decided to not eat out for Ramadan anymore ! The bill was £150 .

We arrived seven minutes early, table not ready . We stood around for twenty minutes . During this time at the entrance we stood inside as the night was cold . At one point we ( four diners ) were asked to wait outside in the cold . We declined , Food good , service chaotic, slow and several dishes not what we ordered . Bill included several items incorrectly .
Could be a great dining experience but the staff need much better training .
