Located on King’s Road on the former Megan’s site, the restaurant opened for friends and family last week before its official opening this week.
It is open for breakfast, lunch and diner serving a blend of Greek and Turkish food, all cooked on an open fire.
Breakfast items include hot smoked salmon with avocado and wilted greens; banana and tahini butter pancakes; ans a saganaki toastie - a take on a grilled cheese sandwich with Greek cheese, honey and pistachio (pictured below).
Other dishes include smoked and grilled octopus with harissa feta, ezme and pomegranate; an oyster mushroom kebab; and beyti sarma - wagyu beef wrapped in a lavash leavened bread topped with scotch bonnet sauce, burnt butter and garlic yoghurt.
In January it will launch Bodrum Sundays where it will serve a feasting menu of sharing joints of lamb, beef, whole fish, and lobster orzo shared by the table accompanied by live music.
“We are thrilled to bring the essence of the Aegean to the heart of Chelsea at Sonya,” says Ugurlu.
“Our aim is to create a haven where guests can experience the vibrant flavours of the Aegean; a largely untouched cuisine in the London restaurant scene.”
