Awarded 56th out of 100 best restaurants in the UK at the National Restaurant Awards in its first year, and one of Harden's Top 100 UK restaurants 2019, JIkoni’s menu draws on flavours and culinary traditions from Asia, the Middle East, East Africa and Britain.

Jikoni's menu is guided by Chef Patron and award-winning food writer Ravinder Bhogal, who’s delicate hand with flavours and global mixed-heritage cooking can be seen in the dishes. Around half of the menu is vegetarian and much of Jikoni’s produce, wines and even teas are sourced from artisan and sustainable family producers.

The restaurant is a culinary gem for foodies and frequented by off-duty chefs, restaurant types, and locals. Jikoni is nestled into the heart of London’s Marylebone neighbourhood, just a 5 minute walk from both Selfridges and Baker Street.

    Arrived slightly late but were shown right to our table, service was friendly and informative. The menu was varied but not to the extent that we struggled to make our selections. Every mouthful of every course was superb, the spicy elements of each plate were perfect, robust enough to taste, but not so strong that it effected any of the more subtle flavours. The scrag end pie. (an exotic shepherds pie) was the star of the show for me, with the venison samosas a very close second. Loved it and can’t wait to go again.

    A delightful Sun lunch experience at Jikoni. The ambience is lovely with Kenyan Indian influences and the food was uniquely flavourful. I was also impressed by the attentive service and they catered to our small requests. Slighly more generous portion sizes and a little more variety in the lunch menu will make it even better. All in all, a great experience!

    Layout of the seating is very tight, understand they want to put as many tables as possible but under current covid situation, a bit unwise. The food was okay, nothing really impressive to make me want to go back.

    The food was exceptional. Dishes were creative, original and the combination of flavours was a delight. I’m diabetic, and the waiter took time to ensure that I was aware of the sugar content of each of the dishes, and could make an informed and safe decision.

    First time at Jikoni since the lock-down ended. Wonderful as ever. Food and service were both excellent and the chef's ability to create beautiful dishes with subtle flavours is still there. Loved all the dishes, but the Lobster Moile deserves a special mention - it was outstanding. Thank you for a lovely 20th anniversary dinner.

    Great to return to Jikoni post lock-down! It's our third time dining with them so we were keen to go back and support the team as we just love their African/South Asian/Middle Eastern fusion cuisine and their very personable team. The food here is really unique - in the very best possible way and there's nothing like it that we're tried around London. The fusion of flavours from various parts of the world just somehow all work together and the food is really creative and delicious. The serving team are super friendly and I'd encourage diners to ask them to explain the dishes you're interested in as they can take you on an interesting journey through the history of the dishes and the ingredients.

    Service very good, music could be turned down a bit. Food, Broccoli excellent, but crispy cauliflower main disy needs lifting up with some citrus/ tamarind. Expected more East African / Indian influence. Take on Cuku paka interesting but lost that coastal character. Also beer good but over priced.

    I was recommended Jikoni by a fellow diner in Switzerland, who told me it was well worth a try. So when I was in London I did so. I am not sure of the theme of the restaurant, and it didn't matter, but what I noticed as I walked through the front door was kind greetings and a beautifully informal and comfortable restaurant. The menu was interesting inasmuch as I had never experienced anything like it, and I was guided by our waiter as to what each dish comprised. I picked three at random, having no idea what it was that would arrive at table, but what did turn up was delicious flavours, mostly vegetables. I still wasn't sure what was the cuisine. African? Asian? Who knows? Who cares? It was very good and tasty and confortable, with staff who appeared to bend over backwards to make this a night to remember in London for my fellow diner and I. LM.

    For foodies, I can't recommend a trip to Jikoni highly enough after my second time there and the food and service continue to be outstanding. Their dishes are all prepared with a twist so if you think you will get normal Indian or East African cuisine - think again. The variety of tastes and how they all just work together is fabulous. The staff are fantastic and like any really good restaurant, they have all tried the food so can talk and make recommendations from personal experience. What really impressed our party is that they team can talk extensively about the various ingredients for a dish in question, how dishes are prepared and even what the cultural background is to the dish - this was all very impressive and made for both an educational evening as well as a delicious one. Even better, the team are super friendly and professional with a good attention to detail regarding our needs as we ate from course-to-course. Location is great just off Marylebone High Street, and the ambience is cosy upstairs. If wanted, I note there is a large table downstairs next to the open kitchen which I presume would seat around 10-12 people. Highly recommended and a credit to the kitchen and service staff.
