Moroccan Restaurants in London
1. Norma Italian restaurant in Fitzrovia 8 Charlotte Street - W1T
Following the success of The Game Bird, the team from The Stafford London took the bold step of opening this independent non-hotel restaurant, in a Fitzrovia townhouse, in September 2019. The cooking, overseen by the Salt Yard’s ex-culinary director, Ben Tish, is ‘inspired by the culture of Sicily, with particular emphasis on the Moorish influences on the island’s cuisine’; a crudo (raw) bar is also a feature.
2. Momo Moroccan restaurant in Mayfair 25 Heddon Street - W1
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”.
3. Adams Café Moroccan restaurant in Shepherd's Bush 77 Askew Rd - W12
“Greasy spoon by day, North African bistro by night” – this “so friendly” Shepherd’s Bush institution run by Anglo-Tunisian couple Frances and Abdel Boukraa has been “treasured by locals for 25 years”. “The grills (fish, lamb, chicken) are the high points, all delicious!”, but “don’t miss the home-made pickles and harissa – they’re highly addictive”. They are licensed these days, but you can still BYO (wines only, £6 corkage).
4. Abu Zaad Syrian restaurant in Shepherd's Bush 29 Uxbridge Rd - W12
“Plentiful and delicious Syrian specialities make it worth trying out this Shepherd’s Bush café”. It has a “slightly unpromising exterior”, but a “superb atmosphere” inside, and it’s “good value too”. “Just go!” – “you won’t be leaving hungry”.
6. Mo Diner Moroccan restaurant in 23 Heddon St - W1
Originally known as Mô in planning, Mo Diner is a casual, all-day sibling to Momo; the PR invites you to "kick back, relax and sip the spirit of the Mediterranean". The interior is classic 'American diner' style, with Moroccan touches.
7. Zayane Moroccan restaurant in Notting Hill 91 Golborne Road - W10
On Notting Hill's foodie Golborne Road, a modern Moroccan restaurant serving authentic cuisine with a European twist. Heading up the kitchen is Chris Bower who most recently ran the show at Tunbridge Wells's “lovely” Regency villa, Thackeray's.
