We went for Iftar at Couscous Darna. The place is well decorated, the crockery authentically Moroccan. The owner welcomed us personally. Few people there seemed to be usual customers. The food was really good, which is hard to say for a native Moroccan ! We...More

The food was authentic and extremely tasty, especially the tagines - The saddle of lamb and seabass will not disappoint. The service is great with decor to match.

Visited a couple. Not overly busy. Great food and what a wonderful escape. Truly felt so far away from the London streets and London all together. Fond memories of the experience.

Went recently (we've eaten there a few times) and - again - enjoyed the food, wine, background music (we usually don't like that, but here it's chilled/very good/not too loud, and adds to the ambience). One of the 6 or so reliably good places to...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Description
Feel the heat of the Moroccan desert at Cous Cous Darna -- the fire of the people, the warmth of the hues and the passion in the cooking. Fittings and ambiance are imported from Morocco, creating an authentic outpost of North Africa in the heart of South Ken. You’ll be surrounded by ochre walls, Berber pottery and pierced wooden screens while relaxing on chairs upholstered in Berber script. Bring a friend and start the meal with the Kemla salad terre-mer, including a very good aubergine zaalouk, then follow with one of the eight tagines or Darna’s signature couscous with lamb, chicken, and merguez sausages. The wine list has a unique list of Moroccan beers, wines and cocktails to explore. Don’t miss the shisha pipe. Belly dancers at the weekend.
