    The best thing about this restaurant is the wonderful decor and great atmosphere. Service excellent, too. Starters were first-class but the main courses not quite as good as I have had elsewhere. However, we didn't order particularly imaginatively, so I blame myself. I'm sure the chef would have done better if we had ordered a la carte rather than one of the set menus. Still great fun and excellent value in today's Covent Garden.

    Beautiful place, great atmosphere, very good service and absolutely delicious food. We'll be back!
    When we visited there was also a belly dancer that added to the atmosphere and was fun (you may just be asked to dance).
    Also good location - Covent Garden is always a good area to dine, but we'd never spotted this restaurant before, so this is a truly great find.

    Beautiful restaurant though we were a bit disappointed compared to usual. We went there on a Saturday night and had the feast menu, starters were ok but not amazing, mains were very nice but, for dessert, they only gave us 6 small baklavas to share between 4... it was a bit cheap not giving 2 each i thought. Service was nice and friendly. Belly dancer show but you can be asked to take part which may not be to the taste of everyone, though she will not insist if u dont want to.

    I was pleasantly surprised with Souk Medina. I booked for a night out for myself and 2 friends. I expected it to be full of raucous parties but it is an atmospheric restaurant with nooks with cushions and swagged ceilings. The food was good and served quickly, we especially liked the calamari and hummus. We had a bottle of Moroccan wine which was also lovely and light. We were a little disappointed that the belly dancer did not come downstairs as that would have made our evening, though!

    This is my fourth time dining here. The first time was with my work colleagues while the second time was my partner and a couple of friends. This time was with former work colleagues, including a guest from Boston in the US. She was quite enthralled with the food. We ordered the Casablanca dinner and she loved the prune and lamb dish in particularly. I was quite pleased as I have been in past experience. The server was very friendly and highly attentive to our needs. Many thanks for your service.

    Unusual and very good place to dine. Poor service. Too many waiters talking to each other. Too much food which became off putting. However would still recommend as good experience.

    This is the second time I go to Souk Medina and I love the decoration of the restaurant that really makes you feel like you have travelled to North Africa, the colours are just so beautiful. We had a Couscous Royal and the meat was cooked to perfection. The staff was really freindly and the belly dancer was good entertainment. I would recommend that restaurant.

    great tagine - especially the chicken.
    however, it was overpriced for the quantity of food recieved, especially the dessert
