One of the best new restaurants in the city and one of the best African restaurants I have been to period. It is primarily focused on Nigerian food, but the restaurant has something for everyone. The waitstaff could be a bit more professional but other...More

The actual suya is pretty disappointing, but the egusi, eba, pounded yam and jollof are excellent. I've been three times and the taste is consistent. Service is not outstanding but sufficient. I was charged a higher price on a drink than the menu stated and...More

Located on a busy street, Suya Joint is a quiet spot to enjoy a filling, authentic meal. Our server helped us understand the menu and select our meals by flavor preference. Though spicy, all the dishes were delicious and well-cooked. The grain dumpling (fufu) is...More
