We went there because 2 years ago it was outstanding. Now I see that it was because we paid a Méchoui, the most expensive dish.

Now we asked 2 tajines and the lamb one was outstanding as always! But... portion not good. Even with side dishes I left hungry. Chicken tajine was tasteless, really disgraceful.

We skipped the tea and any dessert as our food experience was ruined. Do I have to pay the most expensive dish to eat well?

The separation of the squeezed tables was 0.5 mm and add to the discomfort of having a stranger literally glued to you.

Pisco Sour: watery then we sent it back. Came back less watery but still awful and expensive.

So Momo now is a trendy and fancy place, but has no substance. They want you to eat and get out. They have nothing to offer but the atmosphere.

Ahhh NOBODY ASKED ME HOW THE DISHES WERE :) of course... they don't care!

Never coming back, not recommended. Slept very hungry!

I have been coming to Momo for many, many years. The fresh new look is great feels authentic, the food is still good, the staff attentive but not overbearing.
Not 100% sure about what they did to the "club" downstairs... but then I had a look when it was still early in the night...
I will certainly continue to go again and again!

Hi Marco, Thank you! We appreciate your kind words. We've recently refurbished the club downstairs and it's now a bar named Kwãnt, it's more of a relaxed vibe focusing on perfect service and a nod to traditional British elegance. There is a great energy at around 10.00/11.00pm on a Friday and Saturday night. We hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Team Momo

Lovely decor and ambiance. Quite hectic and noisy, and impression of totally chaotic service. Not terribly attentive (surprising as a lot of serving staff).
Food nice but nothing so special to deserve the price tag (mixed meze starter to share, I had prawns, partner the mixed meat cous cous).
Deserts tasty, but ice cream melted by the time I got it.
Overall a little disappointing for a birthday meal let down by general service chaos. Would try again- but the prices mean I would wouldn’t risk it.

Very nice restaurant, food of high quality close to gastronomic level. The service on the other hand is very slow. 30 minutes to take our order. The man taking care of the placement on the other hand is very dynamic.

The food & ambiance at Momo is exceptional. Hummus & cous cous is a must here! Unfortunately the service was lacking. Our waiter was a bit odd in his mannerisms and came off as impolite. We also had to constantly try to get his attention when we were ready to order & were never checked on. With the prices, ambiance, & incredible food offerings we were hoping for much better service & unfortunately it took away from our overall experience. But up to try again in the future with the hopes of better service!

We went for afternoon tea. It was well made and filling. Penty of sweet tasty morsals, we ended up taking some of the cake away with us. Staff were attentive. Food came in a timely fashion. We had sugar in the tea which made it a little too sweet for us. i would suggest a few more savory items wouldnt hurt. Very glad we tried enjoyed the subtle morrocan twist.
Thank you for an lovely afternoon.

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.

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.
