About us

Our approach to cooking is inventive, centred around a trilogy of live fire cooking, umami, and spices. Drawing inspiration from founder Aji Akokomi’s West African heritage, our culinary team headed by Executive Chef Theo Clench skilfully create innovative dishes that combine the finest seasonal British produce with specially sourced African spices. Far from traditional, our menu reflects our creativity and imagination, a combination of classical and modern techniques with equal fervour for the culture and traditions we hold dear.

Our Menus

Our menu is influenced by recipes passed down through generations alongside forward thinking dishes thoughtfully put together into a tasting menu.
