The reviews made us wary to eat in but with some reservation we went for a takeaway, We ordered the monika - grilled fish, plaintain and salad. We also ordered moin moin and a small jollof rice. On the plus side, the food was ready within the hour - a surprise to anyone that knows Naija waiting times, also the fish was huge, and well seasoned, but for two people we had a small portion of plaintain and no salad. This is really poor as we were charged £8.00 more than the online menu price due to the size of the fish - this was not mentioned when we ordered. The jollof rice was ok - nothing special. The moin moin was also ok nothing special. I am often disappointed in restaurants and this is sad as I long to support home cooking, Sadly, it seems the loyalty is one way. This order made us feel ripped off, yes we it was edible but not great value at £55 for 2. You are entitled to expect food that is deeply satisfying and makes you want to come back for more. There was no garnish, nothing green on the plate which you need to counter the spicy dish and moreover, we had paid for a salad. Come on - up your game and stop taking paying customers for granted.

I love taking family and friends to this lovely Nigerian restaurant. The food is delicious and plentiful. Restaurant is clean and the ambience is very good. Guests always speak highly of their experience. Happy to go there anytime.

My friends and I decided again to visit this restaurant on 2nd of December 2017. It was again a huge disaster. First of all, we weren't welcomed, so we took a seat by the window. The restaurant was cold so there was a fan heater plugged under the table to keep us warm. After over 15 minutes, the waiter came and took our orders, and we repeated the orders to him twice. 5 minutes later, he came with another waitress who took our orders again and we told her we wanted our food extra spicy. Our food finally arrived after 40 minutes, by that time, we had lost interest in the food. After eating, we had to ask for our bill. When the bill arrived, she threw it at the table and said 'your bill'. My friend had to talk to her about her behaviour. They still included gratuity in their bill when their services were horrible. The food didn't taste good this time around.
