About us

Our culinary ethos blends innovation, live fire cooking, umami, and an array of exotic spices. Infused with our founder Aji Akokomi’s West African heritage, our dedicated team of chefs expertly craft a diverse range of dishes, honouring tradition while pushing the boundaries of culinary creativity. We blend the freshest seasonal British ingredients with African spices, resulting in a dining experience that is both culturally resonant and distinctly exceptional.

Our Menus

We offer a full tasting menu for both lunch and dinner, with a shorter menu available during lunch hours from Thursday to Saturday, 12-2pm.

Complementing your experience, we offer three drink pairings. Our signature Akoko pairing combines ingredients, cocktails, and wines from across Africa. Alternatively, enjoy our curated wine pairing for harmonious flavours. If you prefer non-alcoholic options, our soft pairing includes house-made beverages to perfectly complement your meal.

Please plan for up to 2.5 hours for the evening menu and 1.5 hours for lunch. All guests must order from the menu.

Please be aware that we cannot accommodate certain allergies/dietary requirements, including tomatoes, alliums, ginger, coconut milk, bell peppers, shiitake mushrooms, and chilies. Our menu contains our in-house bouillons with trace amounts of gluten, making it unsuitable for entirely gluten-free diets. If you have any uncertainties or dietary restrictions, kindly inform us in advance to avoid potential charges. Please note that we cannot guarantee dishes to be entirely free of trace ingredients used in our kitchen.
