Now for someone who grew up in Morocco and has eaten Moroccan food in numerous countries around the world the meal in Del Aziz has to be the least Moroccan place of them all and the worst meal I have had in my life when thinking of all the other restaurants I have been to. The fast food joints surpassed Del Aziz. For starters we had tiger prawn borek (£6.5) and grilled sardines (£5.50), each starter plate had only 2 pieces of each item, the portions were very small, and it did nothing for our taste buds. To be honest the starters looked more like those small samplers they pass around in supermarkets. For the main meal we had ordered a vegetable couscous (£11.50) and a Moroccan lamb (£13.50), before ordering we were assured by the head waiter that the Moroccan lamb was an actual lamb shank, yet when the food arrived it was a skewer of lamb, with 5 small pieces only. My vegetable couscous was beyond disappointing, there were 3 table spoons of couscous and 1 table spoon of vegetables on my plate. The couscous dish consisted of mainly tomato paste broth with a few left over vegetables thrown in mainly for garnish I think. This did not come close to what a real Moroccan couscous dish should taste like, I have never seen thick tomato paste for a Moroccan couscous vegetable broth in my life. We had waited 45 minutes for the main dishes to arrive and after eating it we were so disappointed we just wanted to pay and leave. Even our beers were warm, when we asked the waiter for a cold one we were told we only have these. I think the chefs need some serious lessons in BASIC FOOD PREPARATION, and the managers need to make sure that the meals that are served in their restaurant actually tastes like food, forget the elaborate labelling Mediterranean this, Iranian that and Moroccan this. The staff are clueless and have no idea what the items are on their menu. They keep on passing huge baskets of bread around hoping that this will numb our taste buds to their bad meal and terrible portions. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
