Ikoyi creates its own innovative cuisine based on the interpretation of West African ingredients. We combine bold heat and umami with the highest quality products in a warm and welcoming environment.

We explore ingredients such as Grains of Selim, a smoky peppercorn with the scent of eucalyptus, wild black tiger prawns and scotch bonnet chillies, which we ferment, burn and pickle.

Ikoyi will close for the holidays on the 22nd of December 2019 and will reopen for lunch service on the 3rd of January 2020.


Ikoyi has worked closely with Max and Noel Venning of Three Sheets Bar to create a drinks menu designed to be paired with our food. Ikoyi welcomes you to our bar where we also serve ingredients inspired by the West African region. It is a separate space for you to have a small snack, or a pre dinner drink. 

The bar serves a limited menu, which includes our smoked jollof rice and plantain, smoked scotch bonnet & raspberry.

It will be open from 5.30pm to close Monday – Saturday, and will only be available on a walk-in basis.


We are open for lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday.

Our reservation lines are open between:
10.00am – 6.00pm

"I just ate one of the most interesting, original and super-delicious lunches of my entire year"

Giles Coren - The Times

"West African dynamism not to be missed"

Fay Maschler - Evening Standard

"The chicken was like doing a shot, but of meat"

Michael Deacon - The Telegraph

“Still thinking about this meal.”


“The undisputed highlight is the melt-in-your-mouth beef, brushed with crayfish butter.”

Condé Nast Traveller

"Ikoyi is Lagos via the Ledbury. Chef Jeremy Chan and his business partner Iré Hassan-Odukale employ West African ingredients – scotch bonnet, grains of selim, ndolé leaves – to bring new life to very British things such as Exmoor caviar, Orkney scallops and wild Scottish turbot"

Grace Dent - The Guardian

"one of the most innovative and original restaurants to open in the capital in recent times."
