Tasty and authentic food served in good portions, very friendly service, nice atmosphere with beautiful decor. The whole place made it feel like we were actually on a holiday which was very precious especially during this lockdown. Will be back soon and would definitely recommend.

Me and my friends had a fantastic time at Moroccan Shara. I've been there a couple of times and the tangines are just outstandingly delicious, I would totally recommend the place! My friends also loved the food, we'd definitely like to go back at other times.

This is the best Moroccan restaurant in the London. The food is really home made and the owner is an amazing person. Remember to take your OWN WINE, there is NO CORKAGE FEE. Call to find out if the grills are available, as these are only available on specific days. Essential to book.

Moroccan Sahara is not just the best Moroccan restaurant in Bayswater, but one of the best restaurants in London overall. Deftly executed traditional dishes served with an eye for detail and a genuine courtesy, in a warm and friendly appreciation of customers rather than anything formal or stuffy. My recommendation would be get a rough idea of what you like from the menu, but tell the host how many are eating, and how hungry they are, then just sit back and enjoy a meal perfectly tailored for your needs. Just brilliant.

My friends and I are going to Marrakech on holiday so thought we would go for a Moroccan meal to get us in the mood! It was lunchtime and pretty quiet but Sara (sp?) took great care of us and gave us tips on our upcoming trip. The food was absolutely delicious and we left feeling like part of the family! Really recommend coming here if you want an authentic Moroccan feast. We will definitely be back when we return from our holiday :-)

Lovely little restaurant, not sure you need a starter, we had the complementary bread with our meal and it was all great, I had lamb tagine with prunes, which was recommended by the waitress. We would go again.

This Restaurant needs some serious money spent on it.
The decor is very tired and dreary.
Most of the plates and dishes were chipped.
the food was okay, the staff very friendly.

We were searching for places near the flat we are renting in London and thought this looked interesting. It turned out that we didn't need a reservation because we were the only customers in the place the night we ate. And that was really too bad, because the food was excellent! This is a family owned and run restaurant. Dishes are prepared in a kitchen downstairs as they are ordered -- no pre-made and warmed-up food here! We tried the Lamb Tagine with Tfaya, which was brought still covered in the clay pot and was falling-apart tender. Also ordered the Couscous Royal with chicken, lamb, and sausage. Both dishes were delicious and abundant. Please give this restaurant a try if you are in the area. Places like this need to be appreciated!

Had a good meal here on Good Friday, spoiled only by the lack of other diners. I like a quiet restaurant but this was too quiet! I felt sorry for the poor staff on duty that didn't have more to occupy them. The lady who served us was very nice. The starter platter was excellent and one was plenty for 4. I had the merguez tagine which was different to anything I'd had before at a Moroccan restaurant and very tasty. The others all enjoyed there choices too.

The staff was extremely attentive and accommodating, especially with one of our small group being a vegan diner. They prepared her a tagine of veg and spices that she reported was very well prepared and to her liking. We all had tagines with one lamb and one beef. Each had its own flavours and tastes. Excellent preparation and timing for our enjoyment. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

This was the first time we have authentic Moroccan food so we were guessing a bit as to what to have. The owner was excellent in guiding us. We both enjoyed excellent food very different from anything we have had before.
