Squaremeal Review of Original Tagines ?

The sometimes-elusive appeal of couscous is demonstrated to telling effect at Original Tagines, alongside the skilful spicing & richly fruited flavours of Moroccan cuisine. It’s not smart or immaculate, but the low-ceilinged dining room does have enough ornate artefacts to put customers in a receptive frame of mind – & when the little clay hats come off, the aromas do the rest.

Meanwhile, bowls of light, fluffy couscous come studded with lamb, caramelised onions & raisins or vegetables with a saffron sauce. The starter list has a distinctly mid-East feel, & you can finish authentically with pastries or orange-blossom rice pudding & mint tea.
