According to Mamounia, Middle Eastern food shouldn’t be served without a pumping Arabic soundtrack, belly dancers, assorted beautiful people, crushed velvet cushions, mock-lantern lighting & gaudy cocktails. Club & grub aren’t always happy bedfellows, with complaints about erratic booking policies & minimum spends (£50 on Friday & Saturday), although there’s praise for some of the best shisha in town. The restaurant plays free & easy with geography, jumping to Morocco for a multitude of tagines (perhaps lamb with prunes, apricots & almonds), then coming over all Lebanese with mezze essentials such as falafel, vine leaves or hoummos, & finally adding a dash of generic brasserie (roasted vegetable & goats’ cheese tower with tomato & basil coulis). Partygoers will find ample distraction with the beats & booze; those after pure culinary thrills should look elsewhere.
