The food is inexpensive, delicious and very authentic. If you are ever in NY go to Brookyln and eat at Buka. You won't be disappointed. I eat there every time I am there.

I am american my husband is Nigerian and we have been trying out a number of "Nigerian" restaurants in the 5 boros and we agree that this one is THE BEST. For my soft american pallet the food is flavorful not just spicy, but the pepper is enough to satisfy his tongue too. Wish the suya portion was larger but other then that there are no complaints about the food. Even the service is good, and if you know Nigerian "hospitality" you know what I mean. The price is also very good. Other restaurants are charging more for the same thing. Here we can eat good tasting and portioned meals for the same as a fast food chain meal. Just try it, you'll like it. My recommendations are the Suya and Egusi with goat!

Deliciously prepared, generous portions of authentic Nigerian food - and all items on the menu are available ;) Welcoming staff and a hip, laid back vibe. Very reasonable prices. I watched the Nigeria match there last weekend over steaming hot moi-moi and palm wine!

very happy!-- both in belly and in wallet :) we wanted to be sure and share our review of this great new place in the area. zara served as an awesome guide to our first experience with hands-on african food; spicy goat stew with pounded yam fufu and a full fish (thank you mr. fish!) with alligator pear-- which, come to find out, is actually an avocado! we left definitely satisfied and completely surprised at the amount and quality of food we enjoyed for such an affordable price. looking forward to going back soon when live music and spoken word arrive at the venue :)
