Ayannas Food Review

Ayannas is a Jamaican restaurant in Canary Wharf, East London. It’s “high-end restaurant” stylised food presentation of Jamaican classics is what intrigued me to check out this establishment.

There were some highs and lows, but fortunately more highs than lows! The starters were delicious particularly the sweet chilli prawns and jerk chicken fillets! They were well cooked and seasoned.

The Ital soup was also ordered which was nice, however the presentation was lacking. The cocktails whilst they looked pretty I feel more could be done to make them taste more balanced. The highlight of the mains was definitely the steamed sea bass with potato mash and spinach. This was well presented, delicately cooked and seasoned. Other mains ordered included the curry goat and stewed chicken which whilst interestingly served in a filo pastry boat, the flavours were not very elevated.

A selection of sides including dumplings, coleslaw, plantain and mac & cheese were ordered and enjoyed of which the mac & cheese was standout! The pineapple sorbet was ordered for dessert and this was truly a delight! It was sweet, smooth and refreshing, and whilst it could’ve been a touch firmer, it was still one of the best sorbets I’ve ever had!

Overall I would go back and I’d rate Ayannas ……..
