With its reasonably priced feast menu, shisha pipes & belly dancers, fans justifiably label Souk Medina a ‘crowd pleaser’ – in fact, big parties can be accommodated with ease in its sprawling
subterranean alcoves tricked out Maghrebi-style with twinkling tea lights, low brass tables, ethnic trinkets & colourful cushions. The fun is fuelled by exotic-sounding cocktails (anyone for a
juicy Marrakech or a thirsty camel?) & a roll call of north African culinary staples: hoummos & baba gannouj with pitta bread, falafel with tahini, spicy merguez sausages, slow-cooked
tagines & fluffy couscous, followed by mint tea & sticky-sweet baklava. The cooking won’t win awards, but dishes normally taste as they should, & decent portions mean you’re unlikely to
leave hungry. Related to Souk Bazaar at 27 Litchfield Street, WC2H 9NJ.
Souk Medina can’t be described as swanky but it is unique. The interior expressive to say the least; there is an exotic ambience created by, subtle, almost dark lighting, cave like dining areas, low seating luxury cushions and massive of tea lights. This all transports you to an idealistic North African setting.It is certainly impressive and the perfect setting for a few cozy drinks or dinner, if a little over done...

I'm eating around the world in London and this week I am having Moroccan food at Souk Medina.

Initially I went to cancel the reservation, but after a lot of coaxing from the maitre d' , I ended up staying.
