Wonderful food, nice quaint restaurant tucked in a small shopping center. The owners are nice, friendly and very welcoming!! I am a black American and I felt right at home at this restaurant as I take a journey into a new cuisine and a new culture. I have visited many African restaurants and by far this the best food I've ever had!!

Afrikiko Is one of the most authentic African restaurant in Houston. When I took a trip to Cape Town, I tried the eguise and okra with fufu. The seasoning in herbs of this dish is the duplicate almost the same. I have been coming to this place for over 10 years and it never changes the owners are very nice and consistent with the flavors. The husband and wife are the owners and they are like mom and dad to me.

Didn't realize this was a Ghanaian restaurant. I thought it was Nigerian therefore I was expecting a different taste of food. The food was not bad, just not what I was expecting. However that's my fault for not knowing it wasn't a Nigerian based restaurant.

One reason I love Houston, so many humble and unassuming establishments all over the city and Afrikiko is a perfect example of that! Offering up all kinds of traditional African dishes in a clean and cared for space. We tried the okra soup with goat and fufu. The flavor was beyond, like a much better gumbo.. eating it was slightly more tricky though! The ladies working there are so sweet and special and you can tell there is a lot of love and care in this establishment. I can't wait to go back and try some new dishes, Thank you Afrikiko!

This is best African restaurant in the Houston area. They serve traditional meals that are served by real African cools with years of experience. Don't hesitate to try Egusi soup and goat meat. Thank me later.

The place was very dirty, people were pile up on top of each other like sardines. And the lady that handled my food didn't have any gloves on her hands. The drinks in the cooler was all over the place, in all I will never again eat at this place. Point Blank.

Delicious food. Amazing and friendly service! And an excellent place for Ghanaian and other African dishes. This place is family owned and you can clearly perceive their delight when you're excited by your meal. I ordered waakye (rice & peas) with fried plantains and goat meat stew. That was absolutely delicious! One friend ordered banku and okro soup, and the other got beans and fried plantains (red red). Their meals were also attractively served, and they confirmed that they were tasty and flavorful too. Check this place out for a fantastic meal experience. And when in doubt, be sure to ask your server for suggestions.

Some of my Peace Corps friends were craving some authentic Ghanaian food so we drove an hour to get there. The drive was worth it! Best Ghanaian food we have had outside of Ghana. Try the groundnut soup, light soup, and plantains...yum!

Definitely not what it's cut out to be. If you're Nigerian, and used to Nigerian cooking, you may not like the food here.So many little quirks that would set one off. Otherwise, if you just need some African food, go at it.

Review №28

One of my favorite African restaurants!! The peanut butter soup is absolutely amazing, and so is the pepper soup. That's all I've tried so far. The food has nice heat, but it's not too spicy. Some African places spice the food to the point that I can't enjoy it. The food here is just right. You can tell that everything is made fresh. Honestly, it's simply delicious.

I stopped by because I was walking past their place to see the menu closely for future meals & I believe the cuisines are top notch... though at that time I wasn't there for a sit down. The server I spoke with also gave good impressions as he seemed grateful for my interest. Hope to be back around very soon for a delishous sit down. Thanks y'all!

Review №36

Place is a little hard to find and the looks suspect to say the least but once inside you'll thoroughly enjoy the food. Peanut butter soup with beef was delicious! Our table also had the two meat PB soup option with fish and beef and Jollo Rice with beef - both enjoyed. Fair warning for those unaccustomed, the fish does have bones.

So I tried the waakye, well, if you like spicy food then yea, go for it. prices are moderate but I didn't enjoy the stew that came with the waakye that much. the fried fish was good though. the owner is very polite, top of the notch customer service, you can call and order your food before you arrive and it will be ready just as you requested.

As for just my second exposure to west African cuisine, it was a wonderful experience. I arrived with some good rhythms playing that set the mood just right. The owner was a delightful and very helpful man. It can be intimidating for some people entering an ethnic restaurant and not knowing your way around the various plates, but this gentleman was very helpful, pleasant, and fun. The food was very enjoyable. Planning to go back soon!

As an American woman this is the best African food I've ever had. My husband picks of from here often when he wants his traditional foods. Not really located in the best area but I think they need 2 or 3 of the restaurants so that everyone can be able to get some. The owners are warm and I think they're winning with this restaurant.

Service was good and friendly environment...food served in a timely manner...i had peanut butter soup with beef...

What kind of restaurant is this? I had to quickly reverse and make a u-turn after seeing some wild guys at the front door. I don't recommend this place for anyone at all. It's not safe!

Review №68

Food was alright and the staff was helpful. A little pricy for what you get though.Biggest downfall was the smell in the establishment. I'm not afraid to try something new, but the smell managed to chase my friend back out to the car. Not like anything was rotting, but more like the exhaust vent hadn't been working in a couple weeks.

I picked food up for a friend and was charged a different price from what was on the menu. I didn't care for the atmosphere around me and waited over 10 mins just to be acknowledged after I called to tell someone I was there and needed to order. Never again.

Review №77

The reviews didn't reflect the quality that I expect . I did not like the atmosphere and don't recommend for families. It is not a professional gastronomy case. I felt that the reviews were misleading what you expect. I give two stars to this restaurant. However, I did not order food, maybe the food quality is good, but you may need a combination of everything to enjoy the food.

Don't understand the good reviews here unless I came at a wrong time. The food was absolutely horrible I ended up throwing it away. I ordered the egusi soup ( too dry and tasteless) Stew( tasteless) goat pepper soup ( goat meat still have hair attached to it, disgusting) The customer service is the only good thing about this place. Nice people.
