Peruvian Fare in a Distressed-Mansion Setting: The Coya Experience

By Chris Boyle

With its clientele of glamorous food-lovers, distressed Spanish-mansion interior, and elegant Peruvian cuisine, there’s a certain majestic air about Coya Restaurant in Mayfair.

Take a look inside Coya in the video below:

Tucked away quite inconspicuously at 118 Piccadilly, the grand doors, dark wooden interiors and gold-leaf accents set the tone of the private members lounge and restaurant.

Private members will observe the rare and haunting Peruvian portraits that adorn the walls, while enjoying the intimate lounge and members’ only benefits, but must be approved by a committee before entry.

Restaurateur Arjun Waney, known for other society spots in London, such as Roka, Zuma and the Arts Club, has thought of everything; from a secluded Chef’s Table, to an open wood-fire oven and intriguing antique details.

As far as gastronomy is concerned, you won’t find anywhere else like Coya.

Executive Chef Sanjay Dwivedi presents an elegant Peruvian menu that is infused with his own Indian heritage, and includes traditional ceviches and tiraditos, anticuchos (skewered meat), and a selection of mouth-watering piscos.

As Dwivedi so eloquently puts it: “It’s all about experience, it’s all about my travels, my flavours, my culture, and that’s what I put on the plate.”
