After the sell-out success of PAPA L’s KITCHEN Summer and Autumn Menus, Head Chef and Founder – Lawrence Gomez, is back again launching his Winter à la carte menu.

Born in Serrekunda, Gambia, Gomez has incorporated the flavours of several dishes which his Mother and Grandmother taught him to cook whilst growing up; and fused them with a range of dishes drawn on his 15 years’ experience working in some of London’s top restaurants, including The Ivy, Sexy Fish and Scott’s in Mayfair on top of his many experiences cooking for Celebrities and Royalty


@ The Gojk Restaurant and Lounge : 275 Old Brompton Road, London, SW5 9JA

What people say...

His professionalism has made the process smooth from end to end and we are excited to be a small charity involved with such a unique experience.

The food was 10/10, the creativity was 10/10, the style and professionalism was 10/10. I would 101% recommended Lawrence - his food talks for itself, there is nothing you have to worry about.

Lawrence had this wonderfully warm charm. He was busily preparing these stunning looking plates within inches of us, so focused on his craft yet so engaged with us at the same time.
