Passionate About Nigerian Fusion
My Mantra is ‘To Cook is to be Happy...to be cooked for is Divine’. I am my best self when creating bold and flavourful food. As a chef my aim is to elevate the image of nigerian flavours using fresh produce and modern culinary techniques.
As a Le Cordon Bleu London Alumi, I have been fortunate to gain necessary culinary skills to represent Nigerian cuisine in a modern way.
Having worked at Cut 45 and more recently the michelin-starred Ikoyi London, I am in a position to create new experiences and memories using Nigerian Fusion as my vessel.
For me, cooking is...
what makes me happy. Seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they bite into a memory

Chef Simi's reviews
Chef SiA was absolutely incredible, the food was wonderful and the presentation and communication throughout the evening was fantastic. They arrived on time and well prepared and once introduced to the kitchen they cracked on and made no fuss. Every course was well explained (what the food was and where the inspiration came from, which all the guests found very interesting and a pleasure to eat). They also offered a surprise complimentary appetiser to celebrate the birthday celebration which was a lovely touch. The chef left the kitchen in an immaculate state cleaning it from top to bottom after serving the final course, which is always a bonus after a lovely meal.
We would all highly recommend the chef and also the food we ate to anyone and would 100% ask Chef SiA to make the lovely meal they did for us again.

Chef Sia provided an incredible experience. Birthday dinner for 11 guests. Everything was managed extremely professionally, from initial communication, menu twists, preparation of the day, organisation in the kitchen. Food was fantastic and different from what we are used to. Every dish had a nice story behind it. I highly recommend chef Sia. She has so much to offer.
