    I regret to inform you that my dining experience was extremely disappointing. The hostess and and the server were unprofessional and unfriendly making my dining experience horrible and showing little regard to the customer satisfaction from start to finish of which it was a regrettable experience that i wouldn’t wish upon no one

    I came for Valentine’s Day! The staff was overwhelmed and not ready to manage the crowd, even though it is a known busy night due to the holiday. Me and my date were seated right away when we arrived on time for our reservation, we waited an hour and did not receive our order of food, not even our drinks! After the long wait, we decided to leave as the place was getting more and more crowded, we were not being served! I have dined here before and enjoyed the food, but this experience left a bad mark for me. Do better.

    Amazing experience. The portions are nice. We didn’t have to wait for our food for a long time either. The server we had was amazing. She attended to our every need, and explained everything on the menu in detail & allowed us to sample the suya before we purchased it. Next time our entire circle will come & eat at this amazing & original establishment. Thanks for the experience.

    This is a place I have dined numerous times in the past and food is usually good. This time the suya was overcooked. Hostess seated people shoulder to shoulder due to a packed house which made the dining experience a bit uncomfortable. The drinks were good

    I ordered the samosas as an appetizer and the red snapper w. jollof and plantain for my entree. It was packed with flavor and cooked perfectly. I enjoyed every bite. The service was excellent our waitress was very attentive and on point. Lastly, the playlist was fire. I will definitely be back!
