Souk Medina

About Souk Medina

Inspired by the popularity of his award-winning Souk Bazaar on Litchfield Street, Samir Mahdi has opened a substantially larger bar and restaurant nearby. Happily, the same guarantees apply - affordable North African food, fun atmosphere and a relaxed crowd. In the subtly-lit cave-like downstairs restaurant diners sit on colourful low seating and luxurious floor cushions. If you just want a sit down and a natter in comfort, there's also an atmospheric tranquil tea room and candle-lit cocktail lounge.
