authentic and friendly fare in central London
26/04/2011 by HelenLynch
I'm fairly sure the portions have gotten smaller over the years - I'm sure 6-7 years ago you got cous cous with the tagines but now you have to order it separately - however in all other aspects this place has always been lovely. On weekends they do belly dancing and get pretty crowded, personally I prefer to steer clear on a Friday/Saturday night as it feels pretty touristy, but the rest of the time you get a lovely chilled atmosphere and some delicious, authentic food. The vibe feels fairly authentically North African too - I'm never rushed or overly fussed over but never feel overlooked either. They cater very well to groups of all sizes too, as long as they have room for you (Friday & Saturdays you probably need to book!)Report this

This is possibly the most beautiful restaurant I have ever been to. We went for my 19th as I really love moroccan food but haven't been to a restaurant! Well it was like a dream walking in, all of a sudden it was like you weren't in the centre of London at all but in the centre of morocco. The atmosphere is lovely and intimate with draping fabrices, low seating and moroccan music playing softly in the background. Our food was just amazing and we ordered a bottle of their moroccan wine which was brilliant, especially for the price! I really want to come back and try it again, perhaps with a larger group. It's difficult to explain in words the charm of this restaurant but I would strongly recommend a visit! The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful, making the experience an even better one.Report this

Can only add to previous reviewers' opinions-a lovely charming restaurant, excellent food, vegetarians very well catered for. You do feel transported away from the bustle of central London into an exotic world! I visited as part of a hen party and have to say it was a little squashed, but somehow that just adds to the charm. Highly recommended, I definitely intend to go back as soon as I can.Report this
A hint of Maghreb in central london

Exotic location with typical food from Northern Africa. I liked eating in a cave-like alcove, seating on cushions. Not very practical but friendly. The food is good, as long as you like couscous and tajine, and if you do, the portions are enormous. The lower rooms are a bit dark, but that could be interesting for a romantic evening. A bit noisy when the traditional bands and the belly dancers get active.Report this

Samir Mahdi opened his first restaurant in 1998 and since then has benefited from tremendous success. The secret behind his success is simple; he created a fun restaurant where people had and continue to have a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable time. Enjoying an excellent array of delightful exotic dishes, whilst sampling some of the finest made cocktails in town. Combine this with great value for money, and it is no wonder that Samir has now expanded to open, his second SOUK restaurant. This is the original SOUK, as popular today as it has been since its inception. Samir´s aim is to suit all needs. Whether it be an aromatic cup of mint tea or a flavoursome dish with a devilishly naughty cocktail - the choice is yours. So whether you are a busy Londoner, a passer by, or a visitor, SOUK Bazaar is the perfect place to escape from everyday life into an ambient Moroccan oasis.Report this
Souk Bazaar: Great atmosphere and lovely food.

We always knew it was going to be a tight squeeze, leaving work at 16:30 in north Bedfordshire, getting ready, walking to the station, getting on the train, walking through St Pancras, getting on the Tube then walking to Souk Bazaar for 19:00, eating then going to the theatre for 20:00 , but - due to a combination of traffic jams and late trains (blame National Rail) - we didn't arrive at the restaurant until 19:20. Stepping inside is like stepping right into the middle of Marrakech or Fes, with beautiful draping curtains, candles, shisha pipes and low seating. We opted for the delicious 3-course set meal for £19.99 a head, which consisted of a plate of starters (pitta bread, humous, vine leaves, calamari and a potato-in-sauce dish), big plate of mixed dishes from the tagine (lamb, chicken, spinach, chick peas, sausages and vegetables served with cous-cous - a vegetarian and fish option is available) and dessert of baklava. We wish we could have spent more time relaxing in the beatiful cavern-like space drinking cocktails, but because of time constraints we had to rush the meal. Because we had told the staff on entering we needed to leave by 19:50, the service was particularly attentive, and they even put our dessert in a takeaway box for us to eat in the theatre! The bill - for 2 set dinners of 3 courses, 2 Tiger beers and a bottle of mineral water, plus the included service charge - came to £56. All in all, a lovely restaurant with great food. Will be returning with parents soon.Report this
