Nothing special

It was the first time in a african restaurant, I'd never eaten nothing of African Cousine. Everything was good; the service didn't impresse me.

I'd rather drive a few minutes and get Mc Donald's than eat this again, I love African food so wanted to try this place. I was extremely let down, I don't know how anyone can review it 5*, the service is terrible, the food was cold and tasteless. I parked at the back and saw pans and dishes of food... More

Good average. Be careful if you can't eat spicy food, you gotta tell them when you order cause everything has chilli. Service was horrible. The worse I have ever experienced. The waitress was a little kid that did not know how to talk to costumers. They forgot some of our orders. The waiting time was about 1.30hrs and only after... More

The food was tasteful and very filling. I would advise people only to go 805 for special occasions were time is not off the essence. Even takeaway takes a while. However this is because the food is well cooked. Friday, saturday and sunday are there busiest days and nights so be prepared to fight for assistance and helpful costumer service.... More

Well, I guess the heading says it all The place was beaming with customers. Although we booked beforehand we had to wait for quite some time to be seated. The food itself was amazingly good. Worth waiting for but boy do you wait!!!

I visited 805 on a Friday evening after weeks of hearing my boyfriend rave about their 'Monika' fish dish, being a foodie I had to try of course! As expected it was fairly busy, but we were seated more or less straight away - albeit at a table for 4, rather than a table for 2. After reading all the... More

This restaurant serves very delicious and tasty food. But who cares when the customer service is apalling. On my first experience it took atleast 40 minutes to be seated and when asked for a table i was ignored or simply told that they are coming. I asked 5 different members of staff not one was helpful. As if that wasnt... More

Surely the best Nigerian Restaurant I've visited in the UK. Good ambience, quality food. Got very busy later on (Friday night) so orders took longer than earlier in the night. Will definitely be visiting again. Very highly recommended.

Went to 805 in Hendon with my family after a long day, with the hopes of having a good meal. We were given a seat and the waiter came to take our order which included starter, main course and also water. They finally brought the starter after 30 mins a waiting. The waiter was just looking and playing with his... More

805 have been getting away with abysmal service for too long. We refused to pay because of shabby treatment and non-existent service and demanded our deposit back. We refused to leave until we got our money back. I doubt that they care. They may start to if more people refuse to pay.
