Village Voice's Description

Of the handful of Nigerian restaurants in town, this is the one most ready for prime time, reflecting a longtime Nigerian presence on Fulton Street. Three types of fufu-like mash are available (pounded white yam, yam flour, and fermented cassava), to be matched with three stews (chicken, lamb, fish), and garnished with a host of additional sauces, some slimy, some flocculent, but all bearing the true flavor and texture of West African cooking. There are snacks, too, including the peanut-dusted kebabs called suya and the palm-oil-laced dish known simply as "beans." The dining room is spacious beyond your wildest dreams.

Tips from foursquare

  • Phoenix 💥💥💥 on 03/03/14

    Goat stew. Yum!

  • Village Voice on 08/13/10

    Get the Nigerian goat stew-chunks of meat with skin and sinew attached relaxing in a pond of tomato sauce flavored with palm oil.

  • Emily A. on 10/23/10

    Star beer, chapmans, suya, moi moi and bitter lemons. I'm in heaven.

  • Village Voice on 01/25/13

    Buka (& 50+ other eateries) will be sampling their fare at our 2013 Choice Eats tasting event on 3/19 - can't wait! http://ow.ly/h6OAc

    I have attempted a trip on a Monday too many times for my own good. Wait until Tuesday, it's open them.
