The brother and sister duo on a mission to put Nigerian cuisine on London's foodie map. Chuku’s, their creation, is a London based pop-up Nigerian tapas restaurant. It offers Nigerian cuisine served in bitesized portions, allowing guests to savour a wide menu of Nigerian delicacies and enjoy a sociable, relaxed dining experience.

Chuku’s is the place to be.
