I booked a table as a surprise birthday treat for my partner. We had a fabulous evening. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.
The atmosphere was buzzing, made special by the waiters impromptu dancing.
I would thoroughly recommend quail pastilla.

I found the food portions were small. It was a Saturday night The music had not been thought about at all. Neither current hip nor Arabic. The staff were good but the overall experience and management was poor. Won't recommend and won't go again.

Momo has been our favourite London restaurant for the last few years. Excited to return after its recent refurbishment. But 2 things really disappointed. One is the price of the wine which seems to have mysteriously doubled and also the tables are now about 3 inches apart (lending no privacy). Both negatives for us obviously increase the profit for Momo but decrease the enjoyment for their customers. A real shame as the food and interior is amazing but these 2 negatives will probably prevent us returning

Momo is one of the best restaurants of my choice. Food is amazing and interior is the top notch. I was a bit disappointed of a rude hostess that greeted us. I arrived with my friend for 18:30 reservation slightly earlier, where we were advised to come for 18:30 due to table set up. We didn't mind to have another 15 min of a walk. When we returned at 18:35 I was approached by other hostess who advised us to wait another 10 min and maybe to have a drink as the tables are not ready. While I understand that sometimes things can go wrong, however communication should be clear, if at the 1st place I would be told to come later than 15 or 20 min I would understand, however my reservation was for 18:30 and I can tell that there was nothing wrong with table setting. I have asked again to be seated, hostess approach was rude and unacceptable.
Despite her poor hospitality skills our evening wasn't spoiled, as we had fabulous waitress that looked after us Paul. His knowledge of menu and general behaviour was outstanding. Very polite and naturally funny, I hope my feedback will reach him. He made our evening relaxed and definitely I will return .
Kind regards,
Olesja

The service was quite poor, waiter wasn’t very attentive, we had to request to order drinks after 10 minutes of sitting there and then he forgot to deliver them and they were left on the bar for about 10 minutes, even though there were only 2 other tables he was attending. We had afternoon tea and the food was very average. Fresh tea was ordered but arrived without a strainer, which they didn’t have so they eventually took it away to strain and brought it back without the leaves. We were celebrating a birthday and were overall disappointed with the food and service.

Such promise! Beautiful authentic decor. Service excellent. Food poor. Very inauthentic. Bland. Nothing like the food I’ve eaten in Morocco. So the price was poor value. If the food had been authentic it would have been worth it.

Incredible at all levels. Welcoming staff, knowledgeable serving staff and incredible food (tasty and well presented).
The menu embraces authentic and contemporary takes on East African cuisine, so will please diehards as well as people like to see familiar westernised ingredients in their meals.
The darkish lighting adds to the aesthetic and my girlfriend loved the decor.
Having a speakeasy bar in the basement of this restaurant makes this perfect date venue material!
Thank you Paul who was our waiter that evening!

I brought a friend visiting from California to afternoon tea at Momo's. We were both impressed with the whole experience. The staff was amazing. They often checked in with us, made pleasant conversation and ensured that we did not want for anything. I would like to come back for their dinner service to try some different foods and receive this high quality customer service again.

One of my favourite restaurant in London for the food and the atmosphere ! That's why this time I've booked for me and my best friend to celebrate our birthdays and I was waiting for a particular attention during dinner or, little cake with candle. But nothing's appeared even though I mentioned it when I've made my booking.
