I was in Senegal multiple times, so I knew what to expect. I have never been in this place before, but I am happy I found it. The place is very simple and authentic, like somewhere in Plateau or Almadies near the ocean in Dakar. People were friendly and smiling. We waited our food for a while, but it was totally worth it. I ordered a chicken brochette with rice. It was delicious. And the portion was solid, which makes a difference. I will definitely return and I would recommend this place. Merci beaucoup

Very satisfied with the food and the experience. The waiter was very polite. For my appetizers I had the fataya which is battered salmon patties. It comes with a spicy dipping sauce. I like spicy food but if you’re not into spicy food the dip will be too hot for you. I enjoyed the fataya. For my dinner I had the Yassa Fish (tilapia) with a side of djolof rice. Everything was good. I’m so sad though because I had my djolof rice in a to-go box and forgot it at my table. 😢 Definitely recommended coming here

Went to the Southside African restaurant just for something different. It’s a small place with just a couple tables and you order at the counter. There were only a couple of menu items that I recognized like fufu and jollof, of course I didn’t order either of those. I did order the beans and whatever the special was… some sort of beef stew. The beans were wonderful, the special was okay– both were pretty spicy. I’d love to go back and try everything else on the menu

It is rare that I find an establishment with as pleasant a first-time experience as Nando’s Peri-Peri in Hyde Park. From the friendly, warm greeting from the young lady at the door to the wonderful interaction with Tangie behind the register, it was truly enjoyable. She was patient with me and answered my [many] questions about the menu and dishes and was always ready with a great

My wife and I were looking to get something new. We had just watched “High on the Hog” on Netflix. It really peaked our interest in African cuisine. I will shout this to anyone who is listening, EAT THERE FOOD. Everything was fresh and fabulous. We will definitely be going back

Great food. True it’s not typical Nigerian food nevertheless it’s unique and great in it’s own merit, considering everyone’s cooking is different!unless it’s a chain restaurant. Remember each culture have a way they cook and do things. Nigeria in it self has more than 200 languages and culture,combining all as one, “Nigerian” culture,would be an understatement!!!! personally I loved their food, there hygiene was great a classy place to eat in comparison to others I would say. Keep up the good work improve on things you need to, you all doing a great job

This place has amazing African food. They asked me if I liked spicy food and man do they give you some spicy food if you want it. It was amazing. The portions are generous and everything is very flavorful. The lady who seated and served us was very friendly and made sure everything was good. Definitely will be coming back

The BEST STEW IN TOWN HANDS DOWN!!! The only reason they’re getting 3 stars instead of 5 is for their reaction to black Americans when they walk in. They aren’t friendly or even happy to see different races and/or backgrounds walking through their doors so expect the strange looks (especially from the owner) when you walk in if you’re not Nigerian. But there red stew with greens is some of the best I’ve ever had you just have to put up with the “you don’t belong here” stare when you pick up your food

It was my first time going to the restaurant. From the outside appearance you wouldn’t know that it was a cozy place to eat. The waitress was very helpful and informative on the whole menu. The food that was prepared was amazing and the atmosphere of the place was soothing. I was full from what I ordered and had to take some food home for later. Plan on coming again for a good meal
