    The area they first put us in was very dark I asked to be moved to a lighter area, they told me that area was full so moved us to a lighter area, then after ten mins or so they had a table in a much lighter spot so moved us there.
    The food was very nice, though not really hot (oven) enough, last time we ate there it was too salty, this time it was much better. Overall a nice experience at souk medina

    Souk was a terrible dissapointment and best avoided. We love Morrocan food and being served vine leaves straight out of a tin, carton-like pittas and watery chickpeas with the lamb was really bad. The portions are small, the pricing is a joke (£24.99 per person, where the starter is one ball of falafel, one stuffed vine leaf and a smattering of houmous and yoghurt - I don't think so) but the biggest one to watch out for is the service charge which amounts to 20% - they tried to charge us £15 for a total bill of £75. Never again!

    A great entrance which leads you past relaxing cushioned seats to the restaurant. A softly lit dining area awaited with friendly staff waiting to serve us
    Food was excellent as we both like tagine. I had fish and my wife had lamb shank.
    Great value and we will be back!

    This is my favourite place to eat when visiting the West End. The food is always delicious, wine very reasonable, staff friendly and polite and the atmosphere very relaxing - you never feel rushed. We usually have the Marakesh Feast which I can highly recommend. The lamb and chicken are always tender and the portions generous - very generous! I would highly recommend.

    Excellent. We came in from the rain soaking wet and bedraggled and were made very welcome, coats were taken and room was warm and cosy. We had the "Casablanca" menu, which was excellent, particularly, humus, chicken and lamb. Superb service and a very pleasant evening - highly recommended

    Great themed restaurant. Good varied menu. Unfortunately not great service from staff. The waitress that served us was not very friendly and did not check if everything was ok with our meals or offered us new drinks when ours run out, we had to flag her down to order more.
