SquareMeal Review of Souk Medina

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.

Service could have been more attentive. There as kind a of foul cabbage smell wafting around. Not authentic marrakesh food as anticipated. The belly dancer could have had a come back for another 5-10mins to get the whole crowd engaged for fun! Initial dance always to get all in the mood... Had to request for clean plates after the starters! It should be a norm to have places and cutlery replaced after each course.
