About Kemola

 The Heart and Soul of Kemola

Welcome to Kemola Restaurant and Lounge, where the vibrant spirit of Africa meets the bustling energy of Liverpool.

At the core of this culinary haven are Kemi and Ola Taylor, a dynamic duo not only united in marriage but in their passion for delivering an exceptional dining experience.

Kemi and Ola’s journey into the world of gastronomy is as rich and diverse as the flavours they bring to your plate.

Both come from a background in nursing, embodying a nurturing spirit and a profound understanding of health and well-being.

This unique perspective is beautifully complemented by their qualifications in food science and business management, blending the art of cooking with the precision of science and the savviness of entrepreneurship.

At Kemola, we believe in the power of food to bring people together, to delight, and to tell a story.

Our philosophy is simple: to serve our patrons in the best way possible by maximising flavour while honouring the essence of our ingredients.

This commitment is evident in our meticulously crafted menus, the brainchild of Head Chef Kemi, who infuses each dish with love, creativity, and a touch of home.

Our menu is a tapestry of traditional and innovative cuisine, drawing inspiration from the rich culinary heritage of Africa, Nigeria, and the Caribbean.

Whether you’re craving the comfort of classic dishes or the thrill of exploring new tastes, Kemola promises an array of options to suit every palate, dietary need, and time of day.

To complement your meal, we invite you to explore our selection of handpicked beverages.

From our signature cocktails to a curated collection of wines, brandies, rums, and tequilas, each sip is designed to enhance your dining experience.
