SquareMeal Review of Mamounia Lounge Knightsbridge

Like its seductive sibling in Mayfair, the Knightsbridge branch of Mamounia Lounge piles on the glamorous Arabic charm with velvet fabrics, gold-fringed drapes and funky illumination. Moody ambient music plays as the kitchen roams freely, picking up ideas from Morocco, the Lebanon and other regions as it goes: mezze essentials are all present and correct (tabbouleh, hummus with marinated lamb, falafels, bourek pastries), as are grills, kebabs and various riffs on the couscous and tagine theme (try the version with chicken, preserved lemon and olives). Pastries provide a sweet sticky fix, and there are some punchy, aromatic wines to sup. Racy signature cocktails and shisha pipes reinforce Mamounia’s lounge credentials, while belly dancers and DJs are on hand to pump up the party vibe at weekends. Note: there’s a minimum spend in the restaurant after 6pm, Thursdays to Saturday.

Popped there for a quick business lunch on a set menue. The restaurant was VERY quiet, we were the only guests there at lunch-time. Food was OK (Pastilla of chicken was very nice and highy recommended), but chicken mashwi was too marinated and tangy, rice was served too late, and never at any point was any bread offered (first time in my experience). Service was non-existend and very inexperienced – the waitress did not know anything about the menu, was not looking after the table (us being the only visitors!!), and general impression was that of total disinterest. Probably won't be back unless am starving and just happen to be passing by.
