The quality of the food is outstanding. The Constantine Tagine is just delicious and keeps us coming back again and again. Better than all other Tagines we have tried elsewhere. If we want Morrocan cuisine, we go to Azou, as the taste everywhere else has disappointed in comparison

The chef/owner came out and checked on everyone which was so sweet. We liked it so much we went back 2 days later. Unfortunately was just visiting London and am now sad that we don’t get to enjoy this place on a regular basis. Thank you for the wonderful experience, Azou!

The owner even provided some of his own house made dip. The spicy lamb tagine and fruity sweet tagine were packed full of flavour without being overly salty. Authentic and great value for money.

The food was really tasty, strong flavours. One of the dips with the flatbread was very hot and I like it hot but this was extra hot! The other was fine. The starter was lamb parcels, I don’t remember the proper name! But very tasty. The main courses we had were with chicken and lamb with olives and spices also very interesting taste, we both liked it a lot. The Moroccan red wine was surprisingly ok, better than I expected! Perhaps was slightly higher price than I would have liked but not too bad either.
