COYA Angel Court
Time Out says
A City branch of the swanky Latin American restaurant.
Coya’s theatrical new City location is a swanky Latin American joint with three open kitchens, multiple dining rooms and curtains that section off private tables. It was Friday night, the music was thumping and slightly elevator-ish, and the colourful dining room was full of first dates and client dinners.
The chefs have nailed Peruvian sashimi: it’s the star of the ceviche bar. Salmon peruano was wonderfully fresh and artfully plated with yuzu, fish roe and a smudge of spicy purple corn. Other small plates, such as celeriac tacos with winter truffle, or Chilean sea bass croquettes, were also excellent.
The rib-eye steak also came as a small plate, so it was expensive for the size, but absolutely delicious: tender and salty with a zesty spoonful of chimichurri on the side. A kale and manchego salad with candied walnuts was the perfect accompaniment. Dessert was a different story. I took a risk and ordered the Sundae de Maiz – a corn sundae with sweetcorn ice cream, crushed cookies and pineapple foam. It was literally a soggy biscuit.
The food at Coya is mostly first-rate, but you’ve been warned: this is pricy stuff. Also, the staff were hugely welcoming but tried to upsell constantly. But if you steer clear of gimmicks and choose your small plates wisely, you’ll have a great night. Or wait until payday. Then order that salmon.

Must try! New branch of the famous coya in Mayfair, this is located near to Bank station.
Staff were warm and friendly and service was
Faultless! As with most Peruvian restaurants, these are mainly sharing plates. We ordered few starters for sharing, which includes kingfish, tuna and seabass ceviche. All three dishes were stunning and flavorful. Hard time picking the mains as everything on menu looks great. Eventually we settled for chicken grilled skewers, lamb chops, tiger prawn, BBQ pork ribs and kale salad. I absolutely love every dish and the salad was totally amazing! Desserts were fantastic as well. If you love Peruvian food, this is definitely the place to go!
