    The food was late but given the fact that the food is cooked fresh, then I will say fair enough. The food didn’t disappoint. I had eguse and ogbono and it was absolutely delicious. Please keep up the good work! It’s hard to find a restaurant which does good African food. Thanks for a delicious meal.

    Food was reasonably tasty. Over an hour late, and wasn’t hot. It was expensive for the food received. I shall be contacting justeat asking for a refund.

    Waited a while before leaving a review as the staff promised a full refund if I contacted just-eat to request. Either just-eat or the restaurant ignored the request and I was never refunded. Was sent wrong items and the correct items were poor quality. Restaurant staff were really nice trying to explain maybe I don't understand African food but what I understood was the description of what I ordered and the description to the item below which I got. The soup was like half a tin of blended chopped tomatoes with no bread as advertised which I'm sure isn't a genuine African recipe. Avoid this place. I think they are all smoking too much and shoving anything in the bag then offering refunds they don't follow up with. Waste of money!

    The food was great - although it came in small portions, which is a shame. But the delivery service was early and friendly.

    Nice Surprise. Didn't know what to expect. Really nice flavours, all affordable. Very polite driver. Nice break from all the Indians and Chinese take-outs. Will order again.

    Decided to collect as last time we visited the wait was a while. Food over an hour late for collection husband has been waiting despite the fact We ordered for collection in an hour after ordering they also added on 30 mins. Wish I would have just cooked myself! Food was nice but ruined by the wait. Food was really nice but food always tastes better when your starving...

    The nyama choma came mixed in with a sauce and I don't remember asking for this. that's not how I wanted my nyama choma. Other than that, everything else was okay.

    No cutlery, no serviettes issued... It was a bad experience, had to run around looking for them. They should improve on this. I would definitely like to order again but not with this service.
