Flavors were bold and complex, portions were copious, and everything from the merguez sausage to the harissa condiment are made...More

Amazing food in a lovely atmosphere! The staff is very friendly. I ordered the marinated chicken with dry apricots and pine nuts, and couscous as a side dish. It was sensational!!! As a starter I had hummus which was also delicious. I'd definitely come back....More

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.

What a find. Cold, rainy evening in London, our last night and this restaurant is just across the road from our hotel. Absolutely amazing food, service and experience. So happy we ventured out in the rain. Highly recommended

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

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.
