I was a little upset to come there and find out there is no liquor service I wish it was stated on the website. The food was horrible you need a new chef. It was my birthday and I was very disappointed. The waiter was OK kept checking on us.
I did appreciate the music. The music was awesome.

Everything was amazing, great service, delicious food. The beef suya and fish tacos was my favorite. Everyone was polite and the ambiance and dj gave the place a nice vibe.

Although the food was good and the music was on point, all I could take away from the night was that the SERVICE ABSOLUTELY SUCKS! BEYOND POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!

Very disappointed. They lost their liquor license so they can’t serve liquor which is stupid because it’s a restaurant and lounge. They didn’t even inform us until we were ready to order and the guy said sorry but we lost our liquor license so we left.

Went to this spot for the first time and I was disappointed. They didn’t serve liquor. Food was subpar and just not traditional Nigerian cuisine, it felt rushed. The music was great, definitely not worth the hype

Pushy to get you to leave, gratuity of 20% for doing nothing. Food was okay. No liquor served.

They didn't have a liquor license. We made the reservation 3 weeks in advance. The food was over price and false advertising. Chances are I won't come back.

Note: There is no alcohol served at this location. The Peppa soup is the best I've tasted in and out of Nigeria! The Jollof needs some work. The chicken suya was good. The Peri Peri wings were a definite order again. The Lagos salad was tasty and plentiful. I read there were dancers in previous reviews and we saw none. Warning: Hookahs are on the menu so beware if that's not your scene.

NO ALCOHOL. MOCKTAILS ONLY
We were informed after we were seated that they currently do not have a liquor license. They are in the process of transferring their liquor license to another location. We asked the lady that checked us in why she did not tell us that when we walked in. She smile and said "NO". HORRIBLE. We had made reservations prior and was not informed. Just be upfront with your patron when they enter your establishment.

I went with a family for brunch. The food was good however some our initial choices were unavailable. In addition, liquor was not being served due to pending liquor license in new location. I wished that I notified before so I could have been prepared. I will probably give another try once they are moved into new location in Times Square.

From the many ‘rules’ around booking fees, to the bad attitude of the hostess to the 30 min wait for a table to 1 hour wait only to be told they don’t know when the food is coming..

Where do I begin? Oh and there are no drinks anymore because they lost their liquor license…

Great drinks and food. Salmon was a bit undercooked but the rest of the food was amazing. Unfortunately I couldn't enjoy any afrobeats because the restaurant was hosting a meet up group so the music was American 😂. This was my second time here and I'll definitely be back.

They need to hire an authentic African chef when they do the place will thrive. They gave the skill set to be great love the ambiance disappointed in the cuisine.

Music is great mix. They play all black music which I would expect but it’s old school, new school, Caribbean and African music all mixed up and great. Food and drinks was bomb

Way too noisy for a Sunday evening, I couldn’t hear my friend sitting right across from me over the loud music. The food was good but service was slow. Took over an hour to get our food.

Prepare to wait for your table for a while. Me and my party got to the restaurant 30 mins early before our reservation and wasn’t seated until 2 hours later. It was very aggravating. The owner did show love and gave us two rounds of shots to calm us down. Besides the frustrating wait the food was hands down delicious!!! You must try the jerk chicken Mac and cheese it’s so delicious and was worth the wait and money.
