Ikoyi is one of last year’s most critically acclaimed
openings. The ever-evolving menu uses West
African ingredients to create unique dishes. All are
carefully created by Head Chef and Co-founder
Jeremy Chan whose experience in the kitchens at
Noma, Hibiscus and Dinner shines through. Co-founder
Iré Hassan-Odukale’s memories of growing
up in Nigeria are the birthplace of Ikoyi, from which
Jeremy’s ideas explode out.
Jeremy has used his fascination with flavour
optimisation to create a truly exciting menu, where dishes
take on a strong visual identity through a focus on
the geometry, texture and colour of the ingredients
on the plate. The signature Buttermilk Plantain &
Smoked Scotch Bonnet, is one of Ikoyi’s best-sellers
and a true destination dish.

From the 16th of July we will only be serving a tasting menu for dinner, and not an A La Carte menu.

I had heard plenty of good things about Ikoyi prior to my visit and I must say that my experience more than lived up to my expectations. I took my best friend there as a belated birthday gift and he said it was the best birthday present he’s ever had.

I won’t go into the details of the food, as I’m no expert, but I have dined in some of the best restaurants in the world and I believe that the food served in Ikoyi sits alongside them.

Food was good and an interesting take on Nigerian food. Cocktails are terrible so order wine or a classic coctail not their specials. Main spoiler was a child that spent two hours running up and down the restaurant. Should have been handled at lot better. Ignoring the problem made it worse.

The food was terrific and really well cooked. The Duck was perfection and the Jollof an absolute triumph. The service was also excellent if perhaps a little over attentive, but that’s just being picky really as nothing seemed too much trouble for the waiting team. At first glance the restaurant appears a little uninspiring, but take a chance and book it as it is anything but. We will be back!

Very Tasty creative food. Amazing flavours. Excellent service. Stylish decor. Cosy and comfortable. Not cheap but definitely worth the money for the overall experience! Really enjoyed it.
