Fantastic food - freshly made and full of authentic flavour and spice. Options for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores. African beers too...and all served with good humour and a warm, relaxed atmosphere. It’s only small so best to book!

Visited here with a friend last week. The staff were pleasant and extremely attentive. My favourite dishes were the suya and mango chicken, absolutely delicious and highly recommended. Will definitely be dining here again.

We were at Euston station and was looking for a place to eat . We stumbled on to this place on line , so we decided to take a leap and see. I had curried goat which was delicious and the meat fell off the...bone . My partner had plantation beef-stew and both have jollof rice and a side of plantain. Both dishes were flavoursome. We award winning coconut sorbet and washed it down with Nigeria lager gilder.The place is decorated with African crafts. The waiter was very attentive and kind . I will recommend this place . Will be back .More

The food was microwaved and tasted it too! Would not recommend. Card machine didn't work and the waiter didn't seem to understand English.

The experience started with a food stained menu and disappointments continued with undercooked fish and other shabby dishes. The guy who runs this place is enthusiastic and fun but it is food and care that makes for a good meal. A disappointing and wasted evening.

I believe there are 2 fundamental boxes that need ticking when dining at any restaurant. 1. good food 2. great service Of these two, "great service" is by far (in my opinion) the easiest and even the most cost effective (to the owner) to offer...to anyone who walks through the restaurant's door. I received neither. In fact, the service I and my colleagues received soured my desire to eat. I have never met a restaurant owner who appeared to take pleasure in being rude, abrupt, and display such ineptitude at how to serve his customers. My Colleague: "Is your meat halal?" Owner: "I get my meat from Dalston market and everyone knows that it's only Muslim's that sell meat at Dalston market." My Colleague: "But you know you ought to have a certificate displayed on your door that indicates your meat is halal." Owner: "Well (whilst shrugging shoulder and gesticulating arms wildly), as I told you, I get my meat from Dalston and the sellers are all Muslim, so ...(shrugs shoulder)" The above is merely a taster of my experience with 10 other colleagues at this restaurant on Thursday January 10 2020. The experience was so unpleasant and awkward that the owner went to bring someone to come and tell all 11 of us how great his place is, even all 11 of us have literally just experienced a dreadful time under his service. Much more is to be said about the fact that we could all see that he was serving us meals from takeaway packs. It was by far the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant and I've been to some really crass places to eat in the past. Save your money and more importantly, save your sanity and avoid this shamble of an establishment.More

This is by far one of the best experiences we have ever had! It’s been a marathon of cuisines-after-cuisines! A proper “delicacy tour” of African delights! From art pieces to the food and service, twas surreal! As if the scenery wasn’t more than magical enough;...(for me and my friends) the staffs were SO polite, we were greeted with utter joy whilst perusing through the interesting and very memorable menus from the “starters”, the “specialties”, “rice dishes”; “desserts”; main courses” et al. Moving on to the food! (OMG the fooood) we had by far “THEE BEST” Jollof, plantain (dodo) and Jerk chicken (period!) did I mention that we have had a number of delicacies post our first visit and as usual they never disappointed! One word? “Ravishing!” I highly recommend! African kitchen gallery is our go-to restaurant in London to have a fascinating taste of the rich continent that is Africa! The cuisines are arresting! (In the best ways possible) the scenery and use of space is marvelling.. the rich art pieces are hidden gems for me and all of my friends; we find something new with each visit and they tell the many stories of Africa (my Africa); And the staff at AKG are always kind! allowing us to take photos and videos with the pieces. (Young people and selfie’s please don’t judge us :) ) Hygiene is top Notch, from the kitchen, to the overall eating area(s) (all the way to the loo “yes that too!”) A small business with BIG IMPACT need I say more? It’s been several months of careful observation Hence my review! (I will be back with more; still looking for a fault in akg. so far? NONE! and I’m quite the two-spirited, thorough and observant human who always have something to say (mostly good things!) Happy New year! Tis 2020 already? Yikes How do I post photos and videos on here? I have loads of them taken at akg (and dated) I always come with RECEIPTS! Disclaimer: Apologies for any typos and improper use of punctuations, my mobile qwerty has a mind of its own. I’m very antiquated and so I love to type with my pc. (There you have it xo)More

Me and work colleagues went to lunch here, when we asked if the food was halal. the owner said that it was because he bought it from Dalston and everyone knew their food was halal. When we asked if there was a certificate, he said...no. Very aggressive when explaining this to the table. our next question was if he took card, he said yes but one card to pay for the whole table. We explained that would not be happening as everyone was responsible for their bill, he was saying that we needed to pay cash than because he gets charged interest on every card. When half the table was ready to walk out, as everyone was feed up with his attitude he said we could pay by card. the food forty five minutes to heat and serve to our table of 9.More

I always stop by, anytime I come by train to London and have some time before my train. The ambiance is always great, with friendly hosts and cooking that reminds me of home, every single time. Not to be missed!

Just stumbled across this place whilst waiting for a train. The food was delicious. Genuine home cooked- had the mango lamb which just fell of the bone and a pumpkin flan which was amazing. Such kind friendly service. What more could you want! Oh and...very reasonable prices. If you want somewhere to make a wet winter weekday evening commute special, this place ticks all the boxes. Will definitely come back!More

DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE! This was the worst restaurant I have ever been to. Me and my colleagues went there for lunch today, about 12 of us. When he was asked if the meat was halal and if the halal certificate can be...shown, he rudely replied "it's from dalston, all the butchers there are Muslim". The place was tiny and manky, the food was being microwaved, and the kitchen was tiny, there was no fridge so I have no idea how food is being stored. Then a colleague asked to pay by card and we got told we cannot pay by card because it will cost him too much. We waited for 45 minutes for our food and it never came so half of us cancelled our order and left. The food standard was poor, a colleague was forced to send back the jerk chicken as it was swimming in black oil- it was not jerk chicken. The jello rice was ordered by all and those that ate it said it was rice with tomato sauce on it. Horrible food and rude service. Very poor, avoid at all costs!More
