The cosy restaurant is built around the traditions of the Ayllu community of the Inca Empire. The Ayllu was a group of families that lived together, worked the land together and shared their belongings and mealtimes, just like a large family. Much like the Incan civilisation, Ayllu is about the coming together of friends and families and taking time to share an experience of great food and innovative cocktails with loved ones.
Drawing on the inspiration of the Ayllu community, the menu consists of innovative small plates, designed for the whole table to share. Traditional Peruvian flavours are paired with Japanese influences, bringing fresh and zesty aromas to each dish.

Celebrated a birthday dinner at this restaurant on Sat. Delicious food - particularly the ceviche! The waiter did a great job of explaining the menu, which was really helpful!
Exemplary service given by all the staff. Staff were happy, attentive, warm and bubbly throughout! Decor gives a romantic ambience and the live DJ plays great music, which just added to the experience. Complementary ‘Happy Birthday’ dessert was given (total surprise). Staff sang Happy Birthday and other diners also joined in! The staff really made this night special. Some lovely memories made. Throughly enjoyed and would highly recommend. Value for money and a nice little hidden gem of a restaurant! Thank you Ayllu!
Really fun night and extremely tasty food and cocktails. We went for the tasting menu so we could try a bit of everything and every single dish was delicious. DJ added to the liveliness - overall I would definitely recommend for a group of friends or romantic date night!
Best meal we have all had in ages. Extremely impressed with the variety & standard of the food as well as presentation.
Decor was stunning.
Service was professional, efficient & friendly.
Will definitely go again.
Food was not good, service was average and there was no ambiance
Food was amazing, deco and music are great. They have spanish and english waiters so if you don't speak english and want to enjoy a great meal you are safe you to come here. Cocktails are good aswell.
Avoid at all costs.
Despite accepting our booking for 9pm, we were rushed from the moment we sat down. The waitress made us feel like we were an inconvenience. She came over multiple times to tell us to hurry up.
The website said the restaurant closed at 11pm, but they made it clear they wanted us out before. The food was poor and overprice.
Really unenjoyable evening.
Such a fabulous bottomless brunch. The food was AMAZING as was the service. I believe our servers name was Daniel and he was so attentive and fun. Great value for the money. We’ll definitely be back.
Ayllu provided incredible food and ambiance, but the highlight was definitely the service. Our waitress Anna made the experience personal and fun, and we left the restaurant already with plans to return
Food was delicious and ambience was lovely. Perfect romantic meal!
We arrived on time and we’re told to wait upstairs. We were eventually seated late only to be told that the kitchens were closed when we wanted to order our main meal. We were so disappointed and left very hungry.
Loved the vibe and the atmosphere. I would recommend for the stunning anterior and great cocktails.
Nice peruvian/japanese fusion concept that works well. Food tasty and generally of a high standard. Salmon tacos delicious. Did feel the service was slightly rushed and not particularly friendly, in a hurry to move our group on, e.g. server holding bill prior to us even ordering desert. Diners should also be aware if choosing to sit outdoors, the seating area is shared with the Smith/Grill bar and also likely to encounter passive smoking.
Great outdoor sitting and delicious sushi. Will be back for sure.
Amazing vibe, great staff and a brilliant place! Definitely one of my favourite places!
Greattt food. Fantastic music. Friendly staff however a bit slow serving. Will definetly be back again.
Very nice food. Cocktails are good too. Service is attentive and helpful.
Music is funky and matches the stylish and modern decor. Nice place to sit and good for dating!:) Comparable with Money House but not yet Amazinico
Didn’t like the lavatories, no lotion and they are not the cleanest as they are shared with upstairs restaurant (Smith’s)
Delicious food, fast, efficient and friendly service. Served by a Spanish waiter, did not get his name, but he was very lovely and helpful!
Atmosphere is very calm, even though we went on a football night!
Definitely coming back.
Really good food and amazing service, definitely will be going back
Everything was absolutely okay, the only complain was the small portion of lomo saltado.
Great vibe, amazing food and nice cocktails. Makes for a great evening out!
Excellent service and beautiful food, would 10/10 go back & would highly recommend. Cheers!
Gorgeous little find - tucked away under a pub but fully soundproof (we didn't even hear England win!) Food was so good, if a little pricey - and the service was friendly and quick.
A perfect cosy and elegant evening.
Very nice inside, music was a bit loud but other than that it was very nice and the server was very friendly.
Food was very good but the service was shockingly slow and frustrating. Took roughly half an hour to get my first drink! Also had to remind our waiter to bring us soy sauce for our sushi. I could hear similar discussions on nearby tables so it doesn’t seem like my experience was alone. Could hardly hear over the loud music and could barely read the menu it’s so dark. I must admit the music and light levels didn’t bother me as much as the diabolical service.
Honestly there are so much nicer Asian restaurants in London, I wouldn’t bother booking this one!!
Coming feom a chef myself the food was top notch fresh and amazing standard was very high and Khalid who was looking after us was amazing in everyway thank you for the service and wonderful night much appreciated my sister really enjoyed her birthday there!!
Super food and amazing hand sanitizer :) nice staff
Met up with an old friend… the food, cocktails and service were all great!
Great food but very slow service had to keep chasing up drinks/food
Good food, nice low lit interior. Good service, took a little time to find suitable options with the allergen menu, but got there in the end.
We had the bottomless brunch with sharing menu and every course was super delicious & some of the best dishes I’ve had in a very long time!
I couldn’t fault the service- we had Tamas serving us & he was just amazing & super helpful. We went for my husbands birthday and he made sure to make it a special one :)
We also had the espresso martinis - which were out of this world!
Definitely recommend - for food ; for drinks and for the atmosphere!
Wonderful father's Day lunch here. The food was incredibly presented and the host was very entertaining and helpful. Amazing experience, food was delicious!
Food was ok but the service totally diabolical. It took ages to get our food. , the restaurant wasn’t even busy. By the time we got our second dish (over 1/2 hour gap ) we didn’t want to eat. The black cod was bitter and tasted off. Will not be going back
Food was great but the service wasn’t! Was a long wait to order anything and waiters working weren’t very polite!
Wonderful evening outside dining under the canopy - the heavens opened but the food was delicious and the cocktails strong…what else is there! Great place thanks
I visited Ayllu for a date, the restaurant is paired with another steak house style restaurant, both hosting screens with Euros 2021 on. As it was very busy, service was rather slow, but the attendants did apologise, and it was very hard to hear my date speak from across the table.
The food was fantastic, and came out promptly, however I did have to order twice as the first ordered just weren’t big enough for my large appetite.
We had about 8 very tasty starters between two of us for lunch on their sunny terrace overlooking lively Grand Union Canal. Almost every dish was a 10 out of 10. Polite staff too.
Fantastic food selection, great service and a lovely setting for lunch on a summer's day - couldn't have asked for anything more!
Fantastic service and delicious food. The staff were very accommodating and attentive to our dietary requirements. Lovely sitting by the canal side whilst we ate, watching the world go by.
Lovely restaurant with a nice outside terrace! Great for Brunch!
Great service, nice DJ, good food, interesting basement decoration.
