We came in to the restaurant because we were in such the mood for African cuisine. We stood at the door for about 3 minutes and althogh waiters were passing us up, no one seated us. So I told my partner that maybe we are supposed to seat ourselves, so we did. Now people were still being seated and given water, well that never happened for us. After 20 minutes of no service or water, we left a dollar on the table, to show our dissapointment, and left. the waiter just stared at us. So disappointed because being of Latin Descent, I know what it is to not get good service, but not be served at all, this was highly unacceptable. And please note I was in a shirt and tie. This was not supposed to happen. Will not recomment.

Pros: None

Cons: Unacceptable treatment

The food was great and the price was excellent for such a great find. we were served by the manager who maintained a constant presence on the floor and serves as well. the restaurant is small and quite cozy. Upon ordering our food (jollof w/ jark chicken and kenke) , we were told the meal might take about 20-25 min to come out because the meal are all indiviuall prepared fresh. This was true, we had to wait for our meal, but we had appetizers (meat pie and fried yam) that were a wonderful start for what was to come. the jollof was wonderfully season and it also has a wonderful smokey taste that complimented the jark chicken so perfcetly. the kenke was a whole other experience, bursting with so many flavor and great tasting fried fish to accompany it. this restaurant is destined to become one of our tops for the price and for the food. serice needs improvement.

Pros: the food was wonderful. the musical selection were nice. the manager

Cons: the service could be improved.

Shame, because the one time I successfully ate there, the food was OK. However, the service is so atrociously, excruciatingly slow as to bring ruination on evenings the likes of which make "Bolat" a good possible name for a fifth horseman of the apocalypse. Even ordering out resulted in a lengthy and eventually aborted wait for food. Recommended for idiots.
