New South London restaurant brings West African dining into HD


Ushering in a new standard for Nigerian cuisine, Talking Drum is serving up West Africa dining in HD. The stunning restaurant located in the heart of South London offers delicious dishes coupled with bespoke and flavoursome cocktails.

From enticing jollof rice served with a choice grilled chicken, fish or assorted meats to finely diced okra soups paired with swallow, Talking Drum delivers an authentic culinary experience in a stylish and comfortable environment. Each dish is infused with traditional herbs and spices found throughout Nigeria to bring a rich and diverse taste to diners.

A premium experience at an affordable price, signature cocktails inspired by the vibrant culture at Talking Drum include Shakara – a deceivingly sweet strawberry, amaretto and vodka mix served in a heart-shaped glass; and Afrolypso – a refreshingly zesty lychee, gin and Prosecco blend topped with a gold leaf garnish.

Boasting elegant interiors, every corner of the fiery orange and forest green restaurant provides the prime setting to capture the perfect Instagram shot. Talking Drum is also the ideal venue for private dining or to host an exclusive event, thanks to its desirable decor.

Michael Kaye, CEO and co-founder of Talking Drum, comments: “An iteration of traditional Nigerian cuisine, Talking Drum is here to serve both fans of Western African food as well as those with a desire to try something new. The restaurant is here to challenge the status quo of what some may expect from venues in the area and put Old Kent Road on the map as a key dining destination.”

“Talking Drum was founded to inspire change and more importantly to also create job opportunities within the hospitality sector for people in south London,” Kaye adds.

Open from Wednesdays to Sundays, Talking Drum can be found at 610 Old Kent Road, London, SE15 1JB.
