Located in a chic and fun little corner of Soho the bright turquoise exterior of BOWLS. reflects its jovial vibe. Designed by CantorMasters, Interior Design inspiration for the restaurant is based on the freshness and vibrancy of the food served; olive greens, zingy turquoise and soft almond pinks will be balanced by natural materials such as warm oak and soft marble grey.
Dominating the entrance to BOWLS. is a chef’s bar with snug window seating glowing in the intimate bespoke blown glass pendants and bowl inspired wall lights. Striking street art, graffiti and an incredible collection of quirky bowls from around the world will be displayed on the walls for everyone to enjoy.
BOWLS. is the first restaurant from Russian born Zarifa Ragimova, who trained at Le Cordon Bleu London. Zarifa is launching BOWLS. with restaurant consultant Massimo Montone from Restaurant Keys whose previous projects include Sumosan Twiga, Aqua Shard and Rhodes W1.
Zarifa comments – ‘It was big news that bowls were served to guests at the Royal Wedding but in many cultures across the world this is just the norm. I want to bring something to London that will become more than just a trend…. it will be the way we eat in the future. I want people to leave BOWLS. feeling satisfied, nourished and deeply contented, an experience that is good for the soul’
