Rena and I found a great Arab restaurant in Wigmore street that we can recommend without hesitation.
Pictured left is Rena (centre) with two of the staff at Ayoush (who were not Arab but from Mauritius).
The restaurant is round the back of Selfridges (58 James St, W1) and a great place for lunch if your on a West End shopping trip – and very good value with modest prices. Ayoush has a choice of Egyptian or Moroccan menus. The starters were excellent and the main course not quite as good but still enjoyable. I finished off with a very good Turkish coffee – just about the best I’ve had in London.
