Ikoyi London

Perfect For: Casual Weeknight Dinner Fine Dining Small Plates

Ikoyi is a casual fine dining restaurant in St James Market (aka a restaurant village for rich people) specialising in West African cuisine. The food is essentially modern European, with West African sauces, spice mixes, and rubs thrown in. While the flavours are relatively subtle in comparison to the usually heavy-duty stuff from this region, they’ve managed to balance it all in a way that really works. Their Iberico Pork Suya is a prime example - pork marinated in African spices, cooked perfectly pink, served with a side of spices and some flower parts for good measure. All the restaurants in the St James market complex do have the same big windowed, modern, stripped back interiors, but Ikoyi’s smaller space gives it a slightly buzzier feel than the others. This is the first time we’ve seen a take on African fine-ish dining in London, and it’s absolutely worth checking out.
