Arrived a few minutes early and were sent down to the bar to wait for our table. After the first drink table was ready, we asked to carry the bill to the table and to send a second round of drinks there. Never arrived.
Ordered food and wine. Wrong bottle brought. Sent back and waiter returned stating our choice was sold out. Took another (cheaper) wine. Bill included the first (expensive, sold out) bottle.
Ordered a Calvados which was served in a Whiskey glass rather than a Brandy snifter...
On the positive side I can say that the food was delicious.

Not worth the price as food menu is limited and isn’t in the top calibre restaurants. Service was also very slow throughout the evening.

Amazing Moroccan restaurant in the heart of London.

Highly recommend to try the lamb tagine, possibly the best lamb dish I’ve had in my life! It is served in the clay pot that it had been cooking for a long time. The meat is very tender and the sauce is very flavourful.
We also tried the tahini oysters, merguez, Jerusalem couscous and the selection of bread, all of which where delicious!
The Algerian white wine accompanied well all the dishes.

The restaurant has a cozy North African ambience. Lighting is very low, making it perfect for a date.

A warm, comfortable, interior decorated in a north African style offering the same style of menu. The food was good with great portion sizes but their Momo special main disappointed on flavour (though was huge). The meze starters were wonderful (even the edible plate they came on). The assorted pastry dessert was very good also (made in house) as was their wonderful mint tea. The visible kitchen was a bit of chaos (not great when you are on show) but delivered food in good time. A bit expensive.

Food was Really good, staff were great - didn’t like my table as it was close to the till which meant it was quite loud and when I asked to move they did so with no issues. Would go again

The food was great, but the staff dripped gravy down my head and on my neck and I immediately reacted to the hot liquid they never apologized or did anything to express regret. Ver disappointed in the service.

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.
