March 2019: Momo has re-opened after a refurbishment with a refreshed menu and plans to open a cocktail bar in the basement, called Kwant.

Summary

Old-timers remember when Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman (still married) chilled in the groove-tastic basement bar at Mourad Mazouz’s party-Moroccan after it first opened (in 1997) and – notwithstanding a recent menu revamp and general scrub-up (plus much less snotty service) – it’s changed little over the years other than the evaporation of its A-list clientele. In fact, if anything, the “extremely tasty” North African cuisine is higher quality and better value. Top Tip – “love the outdoor garden on a scorching day”.

Summary

Mourad Mazouz’s “atmospheric” and clubby party scene first brought glamour to Moroccan cuisine – and the fast crowd to Mayfair’s Heddon Street – back in the 1990s. “Tagines presented bubbling to your table” are a highlight on a menu also featuring grills, couscous and some fusion-esque North African starters (e.g. foie gras with pomegranate molasses, Scottish beef tartare with Batata harra foam). Kick off an evening with cocktails in the vibey basement bar.

Summary

Twenty years on, the smart crowd have forgotten it but the party’s still going strong at Mourad Mazouz’s “chaotic but charming Moroccan” in the Heddon Street foodie enclave off Regent Street, whose couscous, tagines and other North African dishes earn solid marks.

Summary

Mourad Mamouz’s “noisy” souk-style party-Moroccan, off Regent Street maintains its dark, “romantic” allure (particularly if you kick off with a drink in the superb basement bar). Although the Moroccan cuisine is arguably incidental, it’s not bad.

"Every dish we tried was delicious. The wine list was limited but we found and enjoyed a North African wine. The "authentic" décor is over-the-top and the space quite noisy, an unnecessary detraction from the culinary experience."
