Salam Aleikum! Welcome to Momo!
Londons original Arabic den
When Parisian-Algerian restaurateur Mazouz arrived in London in 1995, among the first things that he did was look for a place to eat his homey couscous. He couldn’t find any… But his Vespa took him to Heddon Street, at the time a dark semi-abandoned walkway located off Regent Street, in London West End... Encompassing Music, Food and Visual aesthetics, Momo Restaurant Familial opened in 1997.
Momo consists of four spaces: restaurant, café, outdoor terrace and basement bar/disco.

Our Soho-based restaurant has some of the Ottolenghi trademarks – platters full of salads greet customers as they arrive, a menu which celebrates bold flavours – but NOPI has a very different feel to the Ottolenghi delis. The marble is white, the brass is golden, the art is dynamic, the pace is a little faster. The more formal design of the ground floor gives way to the informality of the communal dining downstairs, where two long canteen tables look onto the theatre of the open kitchen.
NOPI’s menu changes according to the seasons but signature dishes from head chef Ramael Scully include courgette and manouri fritters, coriander seed-crusted burrata with slices of blood orange and twice-cooked baby chicken with lemon myrtle salt and chilli jam. NOPI serves breakfast, lunch, pre-theatre and dinner menus.

In 1956 after the failed Hungarian Revolution, Holocaust survivors Mr George Markus and Mrs Eva Markus fled Hungary to settle in London, England. They envisaged to provide the city with coffee of unparalleled quality and freshness. The beans were to be both roasted and blended on the premises - a process in which Mr Markus had great experience, having run the ‘Mokka’ coffee shop located in the heart of Budapest prior to the Communist takeover.
Having sourced the finest coffees from around the world, they opened the doors to Markus Coffee at 13 Connaught Street in 1957, where the shop still stands today. Markus Coffee quickly became a household name, supplying leading hotels and restaurants as well as crowds of private customers, many commuting long distances to purchase the famous Regent & Negresco blend.
As the age of retirement approached, they channeled their expertise to Mr Sarwar - a close friend who began working for them in 1976. Today, over 50 years since the shop’s opening, Mr Sarwar has maintained these impeccable standards and continues to find the very best coffee beans from around the world. The store boasts a selection of 34 varieties of coffee from 13 different countries. The staff at Markus Coffee take great pride in roasting on the premises daily; the rich and awakening aroma often luring in passers-by.

Wilton Crescent is a street in Belgravia, London.OverviewWilton Crescent was created by Thomas Cundy II, the Grosvenor family estate surveyor, and was drawn up with the original 1821 Wyatt plan for Belgravia. It was named at the time of Thomas Egerton, 2nd Earl of Wilton, second son of Robert Grosvenor, 1st Marquess of Westminster on whose estate the road was built in 1825 by Seth Smith.In the 19th and 20th century, it was home to many prominent British politicians, ambassadors and civil servants. Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma (1900–1979) lived at 2 Wilton Crescent for many years. Today there is a blue plaque on the house marking this. Like much of Belgravia, Wilton Crescent is characterised by grand terraces with lavish white houses which are built in a crescent shape, many of them with stuccoed balconies, particularly on the southern part of the crescent. The houses to the north of the crescent are stone clad and five stories high and were refaced between 1908 and 1912. Most of the houses had originally been built in the stucco style, but such houses became stone clad during this renovation period. Other houses today have black iron balconies.Wilton Crescent lies east of Lowndes Square and Lowndes Street, to the northwest of Belgrave Square. It is accessed via Wilton Place which connects it to the main road in Knightsbridge. It is adjacent to Grosvenor Crescent to the east, which contains the Indonesian Embassy. Further to the east lies Buckingham Palace. The play Major Barbara is partly set at Lady Britomart's house in Wilton Crescent. In 2007, Wilton Garden in the middle of the crescent won a bronze medal by the London Gardens Society.
