IYA is an award-winning fine dining restaurant that pays homage to Cameroon’s rich & diverse gastronomy and cultural heritage. We serve a seasonal menu with a focus on local produce, high quality ingredients and Cameroonian flavours. Our chefs – led by chef Janvier Kouenou (trained by gourmet chef Dieuveil Malonga ) – put a forward-thinking spin on traditional dishes whose guarded recipes have been entrusted to us by the revered IYAs – mothers – of our community, resulting in dishes that are both modern and comforting.
IYA equally establishes itself as a vibrant creative and cultural hub; showcasing, connecting and celebrating thought-provoking art and music emerging from the region.
We assure an intimate and relaxed fine dining experience that offers a tailored savoir-faire to local and foreign clientèle alike.
