Snapping at the heels of the award-winning Souk Bazaar comes Samir Mahdi's latest restaurant, the three-floor North African oasis of Souk Medina. Located in the centre of Covent Garden, the downstairs restaurant specialises in delicious tagines and couscous, all served up at affordable prices to a laid-back crowd. Low-level seating, candles and belly dancers add to the romantic kasbah atmosphere.

Souk Medina is a real tardis of a place in Covent Garden. We stumbled upon it when trying to find somewhere to eat after a yelp event and brilliantly, they accept tastecard.
