Summary: Unique African-inspired dishes with zest.

Ikoyi stands out with its innovative African-inspired menu, featuring organic British produce and West African spices in a stylish, minimalist setting. The restaurant's relocation to a more elegant venue has enhanced its intimate dining experience, emphasizing bold flavors and creative plating without relying on extravagant decor. The menu showcases a variety of dishes that are as visually appealing as they are flavorful, with a particular emphasis on heat and umami. While desserts may not be Ikoyi's strong suit, the overall dining experience is complemented by impeccable service and a wine list tailored to the cuisine's spicy notes.
