    Meh, I've had better!

    This place used to be really good. However the woman (who I think is the co-owner) is really putting her hand in this business too much by being too pushy. We tried to sit at a table and she kept insisting that we sit at the bar, where the guy (I suppose is a cousin or relative of hers) is super annoying. What happened to the "African" in this African restaurant? We were waiting for our babalowo, and as soon as he came we decided to go to a Senegalese joint on Bedford...FAR better food.

    Just go somewhere else

    Overpriced, less than average food. Ordered suya meal , which came with a thin over cooked piece of meat the size of the palm of my hand garnished with a slice of uncooked tomato and a few slices of onion -- for $19. No rice, no plantain, no taste.

    What happened?

    I visited Buka sometime in November with my friends and we LOVED it! We had never had Nigerian food before and so we were a bit sketched out, but eager to try. Our waitress was amazing and helped us make some great choices. Not a fan of the background music..... Came back again in late December and I don't know what had happened, but there was another waitress who was incredibly rude and sullen with me. Her attitude was atrocious and wasn't helpful at all. I didn't enjoy my meal at all and felt embarrassed for the new people I had invited over to try it out. So, go for the TAKE-OUT if you want to just TRY the food. But definitely don't sit and eat.

    Saturday night in the neighborhood

    My fiancé and I decided to try what was a new place for both of us. The hostess, who I later figured out was also a co-owner, was so rude that I almost walked out. The waitress was much better and almost made up for the co-owner's poor service. The food however was EXCELLENT!

    Great food, poor service

    After craving Nigerian food for the longest time I decided to take my girlfriend here for Valentine’s Day after seeing it. The food was phenomenal and the price was incomparable, but the service was subpar. After telling the waitress our drink & appetizer order I asked if it were alright to tell her our entrée order when the drinks came out, since we needed another minute to look at the menu, and she rolled her eyes at me at such a request. Let me state that the restaurant was not busy what so ever for the majority of our time seated. Our empty appetizer dish and empty glasses stayed on the table for a good 30 minutes until they were finally cleared and our drinks replenished. An hour had passed from the time we ordered our entrees and before they were served to the table. To top it off, my girlfriend did not receive the meal she had ordered. To give the waitress the benefit of the doubt, maybe she was having an off day. All in all, next time I have a craving I’ll be getting take out.

    This Ghanian is in love

    So very happy to have found this jewel....I am working my way down the menu because I am unfamiliar with many dishes. I have been amazed at the consistency and execellence in the food quality. Suya steak, fried plantains are so delicious and the Buka sauce with is to die for. I literally purchase enough food for a couple of days when I go. Please start delivery :) The staff are so nice and treat everyone like family. I most often go there alone and am always happy and comfortable so don't worry if you want to try this place on your own. I can't wait to bring my parents here when they visit. --Very Happy
