JIKONI, WHICH MEANS KITCHEN IN SWAHILI, IS A NEIGHBOURHOOD RESTAURANT IN THE HEART OF MARYLEBONE VILLAGE IN LONDON.
OUR FOOD IS INSPIRED BY THE RICH SHARED CULINARY HERITAGE, FLAVOURS AND CULTURES ACROSS PARTS OF ASIA, THE MIDDLE EAST, EAST AFRICA AND BRITAIN.
Our “mixed-heritage” cooking celebrates and preserves the legacy of the many maternal figures who generously shared their kitchen wisdom with us, so we cook to nurture and nourish. Many of these methods do not make it into professional kitchens and are handed down from one generation to the next in the regions and cultures that we draw our inspiration and flavours from.
Our restaurant is an extension of our home and our home kitchen so we hope you feel very much at home with us. Feel free to come by and eat, drink, do a little work or spend time relaxing with family and friends.
At Jikoni, you can reserve a table in our dining room or, if you prefer, you can dine at the counter or our kitchen table downstairs, overlooking our open kitchen.
