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.

Very small but interesting restaurant. we were warmly greeted by the owner and welcomed. Menu is varied and interesting. I had the chicken cooked in coconut and partner had the lamb with prunes, both very tasty

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

Last time I visited they were open for lunch from about 11:30 AM and I walked by in the evening noticing that they had a nice atmosphere and several people dining.
