We took a taxi to the location, and the taxi driver, as can be predicted, was a Nigerian that had spent over 10 years canvassing through Europe for greener pastures, mostly in Italy and Ireland. It was an enjoyable ride with the driver sharing several hilarious adventures and feeling nostalgic about life back home. We eventually got to the restaurant. It is simple, clean and somewhat comfortable. It can easily sit about 12 people but not much room for more than 15 customers.
They had a relatively comprehensive menu with additional soups items such as Ogbeno soup, Naala soup, Biter leave soup and Oha soup. See pictures of our orders below. The food came in generous portions.
The quality was average. The fried plantains were perfectly golden yellow with just enough salt, but the Jollof rice was dry and the fish was not properly cleaned before grilling. We asked for red stew, a staple in every Nigerian kitchen, but they were out. The total bill came up to 37 Euros (they only accept cash) but bottled water is complimentary in Dublin, which was a nice surprise.
Overall, this restaurant is not the place to impress a first date or a key client but I’d suggest it as a nice hang-out spot to enjoy a little taste of home.
