Londoners love Moroccan food, and as a result, there’s plenty of places across the city where you can join them in enjoying some of the finest Moroccan dishes around, whether that’s a delicious hummus dish, tasty tagine or much more besides. Here’s our list of the best places in the capital for feeding your love of all things Moroccan!


The Momo restaurant is fine Moroccan dining, complete with lavish golden décor which remains refined and atmospheric. Opened in 1997 by Parisian-Algerian restaurateur, Mourad Mazouz, the restaurant was created after Mazouz realised he couldn’t find anywhere truly great cous cous, and set out to change all that for good. With a heady combination of great food, traditional music and stunning surroundings, this restaurant just off Regent Street has it all. The venue is divided into four distinct sections comprised of the central restaurant, terrace, basement bar and café. The bar is particularly popular for it’s live music programme. In the warmer months guests can sit outside, and in the colder months it’s cosy and welcoming indoors. Online reservations are accepted for those eager to ensure they don’t miss out.

Based in Notting Hill, Zayane specialises in a no-frills, no-fuss approach to great Moroccan dining. Catering to both lunch and dinner, the surroundings are decorated in a classic colour-block pattern which avoids any clichés, and the sophisticated menu utilizes both Moroccan and European influences, made from British seasonal ingredients. In addition to dishes such as an impressively varied tapas sharing menu, fish, meat-based and vegetarian varieties, there’s also an enticing dessert menu of ice creams, petit fours and semifreddo.  Great for Moroccan fans at the Shaftesbury Hotel.

Dar Marrakech

A fusion of Moroccan and Lebanese dishes served in serious style, Dar Marrakech is a Stratford-based find in delightful traditional surroundings. With an appealing menu which combines both stunning tagines and a rich selection of grilled dishes, this would make for a real treat for dining out during your stay at Shaftesbury Hyde Park International.

Mamounia Lounge

The next addition to our list is Mamounia, which is actually comprised of not one but two stellar venues for enjoying some Moroccan fare. With a branch in Mayfair and another in Knightsbridge, the clientele for Mamounia tends to be high-end, which is sure to appeal to luxury-loving guests at the Shaftesbury Suites. This luxurious edge is reflected in the dishes on display, which combine a distinctly London-twist with the traditional grub on offer.


Central London-based Kenza has a delicious selection of mezze dishes and platters, and while primarily identifying as a ‘Moroccan inspired’ cocktail lounge, the meals on offer are more than good enough to earn them a place on this list. As if that wasn’t enough, if you head there at the weekend you’ll be treated to DJ performances and belly dancing – and you can even order the food as a takeaway.
