The food here was really delicious. The customer service too was very good. Friendly and relaxing environment. Wish I didn't find this place out on my last night in Vegas. Would have ate there my entire trip. Highly Recommended

I never tried Nigerian food before coming here, but I thought it was delicious! I had the mashed yams and they made me a vegetable stew because I don't eat meat. That was very nice of them. The staff was friendly and made good recommendations. The location isn't spectacular, but don't judge a book by its cover! Overall, I would... More

I was expecting a pretty good experience since I have never tried Nigerian food. The menu was quite simple, 50% of the items on their menu had plantain (fried bananas) or add plantain as an additional dish. You had to wait a while for the waiter to come to your table even if the place was not busy. The food... More

We visited Nigerian Cuisine not know anything about Nigerian Cuisine. We were greeted by a very welcoming and happy woman who handed us our menus with a wide smile. She patiently explained the menu and helped us decide. We waited about 20 minutes or so and our plates were presented to us. I had the rice jollof with beef, and... More

This was my first experience with Nigerian food and I had no idea what to expect. The restaurant had a funny smell and I was concerned about cleanliness, although the restaurant had an 'A' posted on the back wall. It's a small restaurant and the server was clearly the owner and cook. The paintings on the wall and the music... More

Went to try it today. From my own experience I would have to say the other negative reviews were absolutely correct! I ordered something very common that you find in most Nigerian restaurants - suya, meat pie with plantains. They didnt have suya or meat pie, saying it was "on demand." Where I'm from that means when the customer wants... More

My mum had a serious craving for Nigerian so we ventured off of the strip to go here and the food was poor, service wasn't terrible, but we could taste the food was not made with fresh ingredients or cooked well enough to hide that fact.

This Nigerian cuisine was a small nice restaraunt. The dishes served seemed to be traditional style. Chili pepper hot with small portions of meat chopped and grilled on a stick bar-b-que style. There was rice served and served with steamed vegetablesand side of baked plantains. The restaurant also had a old style of only canned and bottle cokes. The was... More

We knew going to this restaurant would not be fancy, it is located in a strip mall and easy to miss if you aren't looking for specifically. Our party of 6 were the only people in the restaurant. It took a few moments for someone to come out and see we were there. We sat down and asked what she... More
