Following the Government’s announcement and alongside guidelines we will be closing temporarily until further notice. 


We hope to see you all soon.

Welcome to No. 8

A private kitchen situated in St James, London, dishing up sharing plates of Italian & Persian influenced cuisine. 


The menu reflects our passion, it moves and dances with the season using seasonal ingredients sourced from ethical producers. No. 8 is much more than a place to dine. For us, it carries a deeper sentiment and serves as a reminder that food is inextricably woven into every nations culture, community and history. Food has the unique ability of forging connections with people regardless of language and can often serve as a reminder of what we all have in common rather than of our differences. 


We look forward to welcoming you No. 8
