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.

Great fresh food, lovely service, lovely atmosphere. Was offered tea after the meal then we were charged £6 for it which was a bit of a surprise since the bill came to £70 for 2 but it’s ok.

Since my husband and I had been to Morocco, we selected Couscous Darna for our third night's dinner in London. However within a few hours after both of us ate the lamb tangine,, we were ill with sever stomach issues.
