Bokan Canary Wharf is an award-winning 2 AA Rosette bar and restaurant located in the Dockyard suburb in London. We occupy the 37th to the 39th floor of the Novotel Hotel London. The high skyline offers panoramic views to the city as you indulge in the flavours of our sumptuous food and drinks.
The design is inspired by the history we share from the dockyard’s rusty industrial past. The interior of the sky-high dining area is inviting and relaxed; it creates a perfect dining experience. With a quiet ambience and stunning 3600 views over London, you are assured of a truly special experience.
An impressive swift lift will land you on the 37th floor where you are welcomed into a cosy, warm dining area. You will dine in the dockyard vicinity as you admire the glamorous view of the London business district. The menu is composed of varied European cuisines with a dash of British influence.
The Head Chef, Aurelie Altemaire, came up with this array of classical European dishes with adopted British ingredients, providing a wide range of flavours and textures to choose from. On top of the menu, you’ll find our signature Aberdeen Angus Beef Tartar with Sesame Crisps, perfectly prepared lentils with foie grass and duck with radish and wasabi dressing, and much more. The meals are tastefully prepared and presented; they take your taste buds on a journey to European discovery.
The sommelier will continually refill your glasses with exquisite wines that perfectly complement your meal.
