Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

As someone who is not local, I will be coming back just for chance to have more of this food! Incredible food and incredibly friendly service. I felt confident that what I was eating was made with love and care, and was vegan! I had...been wanting to try African food for ages but struggled because local options contained meat/didn’t specify dietary requirements. Needless to say I am going out of my way to eat here again, and would even consider for catering :)More

This stall caught my eye as I walked passed a packed row of stall. It also caught my nose. Quick stir of the rice tingled my senses and I was in. Absolutely delicious goat, plantain rice and a bit of spicy sauce. Service with a...smile - also Halal for those interested.More

With so many options popping up around the Cambridge Market....this place steals the show. By faaar the best food in the city center. You know the food is going to be amazing with the plethora of crock-pots out front ready to serve the best Nigerian...food around. The jollof rice and plantains with sauce is my go to option every single time. From the amazing staff and even better food, i can't recommend this place enough. It is a weekly trip for me for lunch. Love this place!!!More

I would not have answered if anyone that actually knew the correct answer already had. :) I suspect that the dining style is casual and that it is first-come, first serve.
