Review of 'Saharaween'

A small little restaurant just around the corner from Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus serving up not too bad Moroccan food. The interior is quite narrow with fabrics all around the walls. The seats upstairs are a bit cramped though the basement, though we did not see it, is much more spacious (ask to be seated down there, if possible).

We started with the “Saharaween Plate” which had an assortment of peppers, falafel and humous. We had some Moroccan bread on the side. All were quite tasty. For our mains, we had the old stand-by of “Couscous Royal” which was tasty (though my dining companion thought the sausage was a bit strong in flavour – though I liked that). We also had the “Tagine Sfria” which was not entirely notable – Quite bland. For dessert we had to have the pastries which were very tasty indeed.

As the menu is all “a la carte” it was quite expensive and the portions were quite small. But, certainly worth a visit (and a re-visit for me!).
