Stepping into Souk is like stepping into Morocco itself; you are welcomed by low-lighting, low-seating, plush cushions and vivid colour schemes. Souk is also very child-friendly and a popular place for spotting celebrities. However, the food is the biggest star here; North African cooking caters for vegetarians and carnivores alike, incorporating bold and earthy flavours to wonderful effect. Grilled aubergine and potato salad is a popular starter and the tagines here are wonderfully presented. Couscous Royal is well worth a try and the desserts cleanse your palate with subtle, aromatic flavours; try the crepes with chocolate and rose-water cream

Souk is so close to Leicester square station, i can't believe i didn't know about it before. The dining room is tiny and warm on a winter night; it's like eating in a fort you made as a child, if you happened to decorate your childhood forts with leather cushions and colourful lamps.
When we first arrived there wasn't any music on, but they soon remedied that. And there was "a problem in the...more
It is a fun experience eating there. The restaurant feels very cosy and food is good. The menu offers a lot of different options and all the dishes I have tried there so far were really good. It also offers very good value for your money, especially in this area. Can recommend it.more
Great authentic food, hands down. Chilled out atmosphere. Good for hanging out and talking. But also great for having a (good) big meal. Great mint tea. Good hummus.
Sensible options for vegetarians.
Not a top rating because, while service was friendly, the waiters kept forgetting, for example, to fill up our jug of tap water when asked a few times. But then, 12.5% service is automatically...more
I've been to Souk a few times now and would both return and recommend it.
Most times I've been with different friends and enjoyed a slightly different experience, never bad though. The food and drink is always delicious and extremely filling; a great atmosphere and good service but the impractical seating can be uncomfortable depending on where you are seated.
Recommend the tagines;...more
