Amazing food. The quali pastilla is the best I’ve ever had. Good wine selection but a little over priced - but that’s Mayfair I guess. Would definitely go back. Everyone (including somewhat fussy eaters) loved it

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!

First visit to Momo on a Saturday evening to celebrate a special birthday with friends. Food, ambience and service was great. We were touched that they wrote happy birthday on the dessert dish. Recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for slightly different cuisine.

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.

Staff were eager to get us out. We got there just before the lunch menu ended however I think they could've been more patient or refused to provide the lunch menu and propose an alternative.

Hi MohamK Thank you for your feedback. We have very set rules for the timings of lunch which also feature on our Open Table account. The only alternative would have been afternoon tea, which should have been offered. I'll send your comments to the team to review. Many thanks Team Momo

It was my 2nd time at Momo's for afternoon tea. This time after the renovation and despite everything trying to be chiq, the waitress we had didn't pay attention (we ordered two vegetarian and one regular afternoon tea to receive three of the same kind), asked for honey instead of sugar to end up with neither, weren't given spoons nor fresh cutlery at any time) and the sofa cushions are too soft (sliding down whilst eating). We had to constantly ask for more tea, water etc. and we sat with dirty plates for a while despite the fact that it wasn't busy. My friends and I loved the afternoon tea itself, however: amazing rhubarb-basil cheesecake and delicious baba ghanoush!!! A bit sad that the old set-up with unmatching China and the typical Moroccon flair with the big metal trays is now substituted by good-looking but unexperienced floor staff in gold attire (after the shift change). Didn't appreciate to have the manager (after we paid) approach us (given that golden girl whispered to him) to ask us to leave, saying he needed the table (when 4 were free outside and the restaurant was empty inside for a Saturday). Ever heard of business acumen? We'd have spent definitely more money during the time we spent at Momo's - it's just not something that staff approached us for. So please- no smiley false reasons for kicking people out who spent almost 200£ in your restaurant. Customers first is how I was trained - without a golden dress. Nevertheless: we'll be back! Hopefully then staff is professionally trained and might bring the dinner menu to increase revenue, rather than finding excuses "to get rid of us".

The atmosphere was really good, the dark colored waiter very friendly and thoughtful. The only thing was that the choice wine was a bit to much pushed. Normally we get a wine-card and we can study it quietly. The moment the bottle of Spanish was opened I was thinking about the fact there where Moroccan wines at the list as well, and our intention was we wanted to try these. That start made it a bit less smart. For the rest everything was great!

I love this place tucked just off Regent Street in the Hendon Street development. The have some great indoor and outdoor eating space, all looks and feels very North African/ Mediterranean authentic. Unlike some of the other reviews for the restaurant I have always found the service to be very attentive and friendly, the host on this occasion Miriam could not have been more chatty and welcoming. Food was as always excellent, the grills and meze options are my favourites. Will definitely be returning soon.

I was disappointed with all the menu restrictions. No lunch menu on a Saturday, no willingness to make cream tea as a dessert because that was on the Afternoon Tea menu. All you need to do is cut a scone in half! I was expecting access to more of your lovely mezze but we had to stick to a particular menu. This lack of flexibility spoilt the experience a little.

My lamb tagine was nice but rather sweet- clearly not cooked to order as arrived 1 minute after ordering and before the wine arrived

Fantastic decor and concept, really does feel special, unfortunately service has some catching up to do. I’ve never seen that many people standing around observing the restaurant and that little attention to guests. We were three sat at a tiny corner table, some of our food had been taken before it was finished (happened so quickly I didn’t realise!!), and at the end we sat empty handed waiting to be offered dessert / coffee / more wine for 20 minutes (we were only offered at the point of asking for the bill). Food was lovely, the lamb tagine was really to die for, some dishes quite small, but I can get over that. Overall glad I checked it out but unlikely to return.
