From Monday July 19, Head Chef Victor is inviting people to try an eight-course tasting menu at the special price of £25, excluding drinks. 

This menu, which changes daily, gives you the chance to sample some of Victor's dishes and get a feel of the restaurant, which takes its name from a Zulu word meaning 'bring the light'.

Dishes include jerk chicken taco; steamed moimoi with chakalaka and smoked butter sauce; and BBQ lobster tail in pepper soup bisque.

A vegetarian tasting menu is available on request, and there's no walk-ins for this, so book ahead.

Isibani is described by co-founders, Anthony Douglas Chuka and Abdul Malik Abubakar, as a love letter to West African cuisine and their mother’s Ibo Nigerian heritage.

Nigerian born Londoner Victor has created a menu that reflects the traditions, ingredients, and culture of West Africa through interpretations of childhood recipes made with authentic techniques.

While fitting in with the glitz and glam of Knightsbridge, the design sings with an African colour palette and takes its ques from the elegant geometric patterns and bold colours of Nigerian fashion.

Isibani opens for real on August 7, with an a la carte menu and walk-ins. It will also have a small roof terrace to head on sunny days.

The soft launch runs from July 19 to August 2. Book online at
