Further Information

When we talk West African cuisine, and Nigerian cuisine in particular (805’s big brother is headquartered in Abuja), we’re talking deeply delicious soups and sauces building from a base of palm and groundnut oils, indigenous herbs and spices, and quite often a whole heap of chilli heat. Social and sumptuous, a banquet at London’s best ambassador for this kind of food is sure to exceed aficionados’ expectations, and surprise curious foodies. You’ll definitely want to sample 805 Restaurant’s chef’s specials when you dine at this one-of-a-kind restaurant down Peckham’s Old Kent Road.

Meat and pepper soup with okra and pounded yam, tiger prawns with ogbono (just ask the friendly, knowledgeable staff!) and vegetable soup – just a couple of the dishes with which you might want kickstart a meal at Peckham’s 805 Restaurant. These are drawn from the list of chef’s specials, that while presenting a picture of what this unique, upscale West African restaurant can do, by no means exhaust the extensive offering of (predominantly) Nigerian dishes on offer. Moving into the main event, tuck into spicy whole grilled fish with croaker, tilapia, and traditional jollof rice on the side, or go for the authentic eforiro chopped traditional vegetables in a spicy tomato sauce with your choice of fish, beef or chicken. Booking a table at this spacious, airy, but all-too-often packed out London gem down Old Kent Road is a must.

The staff were very professional and the food was excellent. Keep up the good work. I will be visiting again soon. The music is good, but a tv showing text for news would be good.

First Tina at 805 in Peckham . I went with my son ... booked a table for 2 the table was a tight squeeze to get in and out off , no space to even put your plate and glass.😒waiters were attentive.👍🏿orderd grilled fish this was delicious😋😋 but scales not taken off properly so couldn't eat the skin😞hated the salad that came with fish so I asked for cucumber and onion slices to go with my fish not given onion slices given 2 slices of cucumber !!! Expected at least half a cucumber not 2 slices as the was meant to be my salad ??!😒😒😒my son didn't like his mixed grilled meats I had a few bites of the pieces they were dry ☹️But nice restaurant good atmosphere... lighting outside not on dark entrance and hard to see it from across the street at night...would definitely go again for the fish and hopefully I will get half a cucumber next time instead of 2 slices ...

I would have given a full rating of 6. Why,we had to go and look for somewhere else to park,before we booked what attracted me to restaurant was parking, it should be removed from the website that there is no parking at toys ur rus. The second point is that there are far too many waiters standing around so close to where the customers are seated, it's okay to have a few around but not a lot at the same time on the floor. We travelled from outside London to get to the restaurant but it was worth it,we were a large group,from the oldest to the youngest, we had a blast.

It was a great atmosphere ,lovely waitresses and waiters helpful and cheerful.. But one thing they need to always check the money paid because the waiter didn't check to see if we gave the right money or if we gave a tip to even say thank you.. But overall everything else was fine. Thank you !! I would recommend a friend there .N.B. The cow foot or was it cow tail was too soft .

Went with a group of 14. The waiter assigned to our table wasn't 100% up to speed on the menu, but once our order was taken, food was delivered quickly , and tasted great. Some in the group thought the food was a little pricey for what was on offer, but otherwise not much to complain about. We would have benefitted from 2 waiters assigned to our party, and the desserts menu needs looking at, but I'll be back.

Staff are friendly and polite. The waiter was really attentive and was quick to help if required. The food was amazing, we thoroughly enjoyed it. I was a bit disappointed as they didn't have any tiger prawns, but there were plenty of alternative options to choose from. The food is nice and spicy, full of flavours.

Nice and ambience and the it was good that restaurant was easy to find. However, it was a lousy experience and not worth the expense both in terms of quality of the food and the price. I booked a reservation and called to confirm it. I was answered by someone who claimed he was to busy taking orders to confirm whether or not I had made a reservation. He also told me that they did not accept reservations after a certain time, even though I had been given a reservation number confirming my booking. At the restaurant, the waiters took an awful amount of time taking our order, serving the food and then giving us our bill. They also looked extremely unhappy and disinterested in their work. The okro soup was bland, the moi moi and the pounded yam tasted like something out of a plastic bag. In terms of taste and quality of the food, I think tasty in Woolich is better despite the simple environment.
