Outstanding. Based on a recommendation, I reserved a table for 2 on a Saturday for their 7 course lunch menu. Starting with amazingly refreshing, bright, and punchy cocktails - we got the show started. Highly recommend starting with one (or two!) of their cocktails. Too many brilliant courses to describe but favorites were the octopus, scallops, plantains, and crepes. EVERY dish was beautifully presented and artfully serviced. The flavors were so unique and I just loved the attentive service from the waitstaff. I enjoyed every minute of the 2hours we spent there and left extremely satisfied and invigorated (Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee helped!). More impressive is the size and efficiency of the kitchen to produce such high quality mastery. On your way out, wave to Chef Jeremy Chan and his talented team. A highlight of my trip to the UK. Highly recommended.

Lunch tasting was phenomenal. Great service, presentation, taste, variety & ambiance. Everything was top notch. They are serving novel yet approachable concepts that are executed perfectly. I can’t say enough good things about it. If you have the opportunity to eat here do so!

Amazing taste. Tried West African food for the first time. Combination of spices was just delicious. The tasting menu is highly recommended.

Interesting west African food at this (now) 2 michie restaurant. Overall some innovative dishes and flavours but ultimately wasn’t blown away by any particular dishes. Also the decor and atmosphere just felt a bit strange - not sure what feel they are shooting for. For the premium price tag I would say there are other places to spend that kind of money. If you fancy west African though I would highly recommend akoko which I love. Very possible the food went over my head as such as I don’t profess to be a west African food expert. 15/20

My 3rd visit to Ikoyi and they never fail to surprise me! The night began with an explosion of flavours by the amuse bouche that woke up my taste buds. My favourite is the octopus fried in wild rice with yeasted béarnaise. . Beef is perfectly cooked and the maitake mushroom is just amazing! Sorghum pancake with cuttlefish and trompette make such an interesting combination. . Aged turbot is good especially with the miso and caramelised chicken sauce. Just that the honey brioche on the side doesn’t really go along well… . The only dish that let me down was the clam dumpling. It is a new dish so I guess more work is needed. Caviar already gives a good saltiness but the broth is way too salty that I can’t taste any of the pork, apple or peppercorn they mentioned… . Pistachio ice-cream is really nice! So creamy and buttery yet refreshing with a hint of fruitiness from pear. Oh and yes the plantain is back on the menu!! Definitely will visit again!
