I found this restaurant very average. When you walk in it's very dark. Decor is ok. We were sat downstairs at a table that was too low so our knees were knocking the table. I walked out of there with a backache as I had to keep leaning over to get my food. I felt like I was in someone's living room sitting roung their coffee table. Staff were irritating and the entertainment who was a belly dancer was average. We went for the Christmas set menu. The wine was ok and the starters were lovely (humous, pitta bread, tatzhiki, stuffed vine leaves, falafel and this lamb thing) however I was very disappointed with the main course which was a bowl of boiled chicken which was very average, cous cous and chickpeas. I thought it was costly here for what we actually got. I wouldn't rush back!

I dont understand people who dont like this place, Souk proved to be a nice experience again, not having been there since my birthday party a couple of years ago, I went again last week for my best friend hen party, we got pretty drunk but still managed to enjoy the belly dancer and the nice food.

The waiter who served us (Rashid) was very helpful and polite, although we forced him to dance with all of us.

We reserved a table downstairs in there private area, and we had the room for ourselves.

Great place I must say, for a first timer I was pretty amazed with how they managed to replicate to Moroccan experience, the food was tasty, I had the mixed fish tagine for main and the zaalouk for starter, service was rather satisfying with just perfect timing between the courses, which was perfect as we were hungry.

My husband went for the couscous with lamb, having been to morocco few times I must say that I was a little hesitant to go for this place as I did not want the nice images I kept of morocco in my head to be messed up in any way, I was rather pleased.

I recommend for anyone who wants to try something different, also for those who did not try yet the tasty Moroccan tagines, that is the place to go.
