Nestled at the back of Harvey Nichols in Mall of the Emirates with multi-coloured Arabic lanterns and mosaic walls that shimmer with the reflections from the lights, Almaz by Momo is an inviting, atmospheric and cosseting place to dine. With comfortable seating scattered throughout, it’s a great spot to pass a few hours. Unfortunately, the lack of urgency doesn’t appear to have been lost on the staff, who are at best relaxed and at worst non-existent (we had to wait far too long to receive our bill after asking several times). The food on the other hand is very good, with traditional North African dishes executed well, with great flavours and a refreshing lightness. Tender cuts of meat and portions that are satisfactory without being excessive are complemented by tasty salads, seafood and drinks. While it doesn’t have the wow factor of some of its rivals, it’s nevertheless a great spot for Morroccan cuisine.
