    I really enjoyed my dinner at Mamounia Lounge Knightsbridge. Food was very good and there is a good balance between price and quality. Also, the amount of food we had left us completely satisfied although we only had sharers and not main courses. I love drinks in this restaurant, they are carefully prepared and very tasty. The only thing I didn't like is the loud music when the belly dancer came. It was hard to talk with that noise.

    Me and my partner went few days ago,was hot day so sat near the balcony and ordered lovely cold drinks! Which were lush - watermelon juice which was fresh and I wasnt sure which fresh lemonade to have so the lovely waitreaa recommended strawberry lemonade and it was amazing!! Meal came within 10 mins we didnt have starters on this occasion.His choice was fillet seabass and white rice and I chose chicken couscous,couscous was lovely and chicken was soft and tender! Best meal i had in ages! Will defo be going back soon,with the girls this time!!! Atmosphere was buzzing as alot of people were smoking shesha outside due to it being a very hot day! No complaints at all!

    The food was good although several of our choices on the menu were not available. The one bug was charging if you asked for extra bread, I don't think this is good. The food was fresh and large portions so don't over order. The restaurant was overly hot and we had to ask for the air con to be put on but the staff we obliging. The cocktails were great . What made it even better was the Open Table deal which gave us 40% off food, it made it good value.

    Really great food and great service. I think based on the location you should know what to expect there. Unless you look like a billionaire I fear due to lack off effort to rearrange decor you will be sat next to the shisha area to eat your meals because the nice area is 'reserved for members'

    Really good food and beautiful venue. However, it was difficult to get the attention of staff as they disappeared! The shisha is very pricey at £35 plus £5 charge per person - but it was very good shisha. A shame we couldn't get someone to change the coal for us for a very long time so we asked for the bill and left. Good vegetarian options and reasonably priced food. I would go back as the food, drink and shisha was brilliant.

    I came here for my birthday as a group of 6. I mentioned that it was my birthday when reserving the table, so they bought out chocolate pudding and ice cream with a candle for me and free shots. I really enjoyed the food, as it was good value for money given the area the restaurant is situated. The entertainment was good with the bellydancer. I even danced alongside her much to the delight of my friends! The waitresses were very friendly and were accommodating with my friend's plentiful sauce requests.

    .We couldn't really fault the food at the Mamounia lounge bit were quite put off by some of the sleazy behavior of some of the male staff who spent a lot of their time trying to find out about the love lives of their female colleagues. We even heard wolf whistles coming from the kitchen.. avoid.

    Whilst I was aware of the address the only thing missing is a prominent sign on the outside. Wonderful technology mobile phones, speaking to the young female member of staff, who was very polite and helpful saying to me you've just walked past, out she came and escorted me In error I had gone down a dead end passageway next door. Funnily enough the friends I had arranged to meet there did exactly the same thing, at least it created a laugh at the beginning of an excellent evening. Layout was excellent we where right at the back and could see everything that was going on. Staff service and food were all excellent

    We booked a table for 7 and it was comfortable. We were not squashed or cramped. The food was amazing. I would recommend their speciality lamb. It was succulent and delicious. Only problem with the restaurant was that it was not good value for money. For the amount we paid I wish we would have received bigger portions. Having said that if I was in the area I would go back. Just wouldn't go out if my say go go there.

    We ate here post theatre and were very pleased with our choice. The restaurant is almost opposite Harrods and only a short walk from the Royal Albert Hall. The quality of the food was excellent - fantastic starters including grilled hallumi and beautifully smooth hummus with lamb shwarma and pomegranate. Our mains were great. I prefer vegetarian and had some beautiful cooked goats cheese covered in black and white sesame seeds. Others had lamb shwarma and other lamb choices which were excellent. We then had lovely baklava for dessert. We left @ 9 just as the belly dancing started, which looked fun. The staff were very attentive and we all came away having had a thoroughly good experience.

    I had heard a lot about this place .. So I thought we give it a try. It lived up to the expectation I must say. If you don't mind paying the price, the food was great and well presented. The ambiance was very relaxed and they managed to find us a quiet spot where we could talk and enjoy the evening. The staff was very tentative and polite. Expect to pay around 100 pounds meal for two. As I said if you don't mind the price, it's great place to eat. We will definitely be returning on another special occasion. Thank you :))

    They need more professional and friendly staff. I could see them arguing amongst themselves. And one of the waitresses obviously had issues and she really made it us aware by her ome words answers amd stuck up attitude. She didnt smile once! I also got a stiff neck by having to turn around and grab attention from the waiters who where just walking paste clearly ignoring us. But maybe this was on odd occasion. Apart from that hats off to the cheff, the decor, atmosphere and thr belly dancer which was quite entertaining. I will surely recommend it unless you are looking for a 4 star quality service ..always!

    Positives: charming waitress, always apologising for other aspects in the restaurant. Traditional slow cooked lamb was lovely ( presentation could be worked on!) The cocktails were great Negatives. : Management were surely and argued with a member of staff in front of us... very uncomfortable and unprofessional. One of our courses never turned up... We ensured we were not charged. We booked a restaurant table with Toptable, but instead we were put in the bar with the hustle and bustle of waiting customers and the DJ in the corner of a relatively small space! Not good! Will never return.

    Food was good. Portions for the main were a decent size. Starter portions could have been a bit more generous. Service was very slow (but friendly) even though the restaurant was relatively empty. Not sure what kind of service we would have had if the place had been busy. Slightly overpriced, but with the special offer the price was very reasonable.

    Sorry to say but this was not the experience it planned to be. The interior design is great but like most retaurnts in London space is very limited. The tables are in stamp-size compared to the ones in europe. the food was average and so was the service. when we entered the location we were not even greeted beacuse the 3 ladies were discussing reservations. then we got a seat where my wife (it was her birthday) had a nice seat but myself was placed on the hallway to the bathrooms. when i missed a warm starter platter i told them they might have forgotten ist but this was not their sense of humor. at 8 started a dj set which i did not realized wehn i booked the table and so it was even more noizy. sorry, no recommendation

    We went in and sat down in the first room. I would have liked to sit upstairs where the tables were separated by the gold curtains but none the less the ambience was lovely. Service was quick. We went on a Monday night so the place was not busy at all. We ordered the pastries and sausage platter for starters. The sausages were so good and so were the pastries. We then ordered a meat dish for the main to share. There was a lot of meat we couldn't finish it all but the meat was dry tender. I also had French fries and buttered cous cous as a side. We also had Virgin cocktails which was lovely and some atay afterwards.

    In the heart of Knightsbrigde - highly accessible & a desirable place to eat. Classy looking interior, better than expected. Excellent service - kind & helpful waitresses. Reasonable pricing for the area but the quality of the food does not match up to it. Overall an excellent venue for a Friday night dinner.
