Review on Rüya London

Anatolian restaurant Rüya London was launched in June 2018 by Dogus Restaurant Entertainment and Management Group, who have already established a sibling restaurant in Dubai. Meaning dream in Turkish, Rüya is located within the Grosvenor House in the heart of Mayfair, although it is operated separately from the hotel, and has it's own entrance on Upper Grosvenor Street.

The chic interiors have been created by Conran and Partners with diners entering the restaurant through a Byzantine-inspired archway, where a large wood-fired bread oven takes centre stage, together with a feature wall displaying the distilling apparatus used to make Raki, a Turkish spirit. A light and airy room from the large street-facing windows, it features marble flooring and brass detailing, intricate bespoke Turkish tiling and a chef's table set next to the open kitchen.

Chef-patron is Colin Clague who formerly graced the kitchens as Executive Chef of Zuma London and Dubai. He has curated a seasonal menu of contemporary dishes from the Anatolian peninsula, which stretches from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea, using produce from trusted British farmers and suppliers, together with carefully sourced herbs and spices.

From the a la carte menu open proceedings with a cold starter of Lakerda, salt-cured bonito, compressed cucumber and tarama or from the hot section, Acili Kanat, chilli grilled chicken wings with maresh pepper. Follow on with butter poached lobster with urfa biber, toasted simit and chilli oil or for those who prefer meat, there's lamb cutlets, smoked aubergine, tomato and minted yoghurt. Desserts promise upmarket ideas like orange and almond revani, orange and almond cake with caramel, charred orange and fennel ice-cream or for something refreshing opt for the seasonal fruit platter paired with sorbet.

The wine list is an international slate with plenty of options available by the glass using the Coravin system, ensuring top quality preservation. The cocktail menu includes offerings like Constantinople, Ketel One Vodka, oat milk, saffron, cedar wood or Turkish Colada, Ketel One Vodka, Roots Mastiha ice cream, pineapple, lime, Oolong tea and pistacchio.
