The team behind the upscale West African restaurant Akoko launched a new concept in Borough Yards in October 2023. Akara is named after West African black-eye bean fritters.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"If you like Akoko you will like Akara. Sharing plates format - the dishes whilst carrying some West African spice still remain delicate. The venue is open and airy with good table spacing. The service was very attentive. Wine list reasonable. I can see this place taking off in popularity."
