My friend and I came to order banga soup to go. We ordered a few. The picture below is the soup they provided. The bowl initially looked full because of the fish but when I took it out I was legitimately weak. There was only about 2 tablespoons of soup. However, the flavor was amazing compared to what other people are cooking in Houston. It did taste a bit like ofe nsala mixed with banga instead of straight bangs but it was good. Unfortunately I could only use 1/4 of the pounded yam.Also, the pounded yam was RAW!! It was smooth with no lumps but tasted completely raw. I actually threw up because it tasted like play-doh. I had to heat it on my stove and turn it myself. If you have to recook the food then it's a waste of money.

I went over here like Uber driver, twice! The last one the person who order live 40 minutes far away from restaurant, she order with Uber (they don't pay well for long distance) but the Restaurant seems nice and clean, different from the other places, you see in Houston, I do not try the food yet, but I want it so badly, I just want to give 5 stars because is a good place for eat, I have intuition.

The decor and vibe was amazing. That was the only good thing about it for me today... my waitress was not nice and was rude. The jollof could be better. Goat meat was soft which was good.. the designer stew was alright. I came because I keep hearing about it. Never going back.. Good luck to everyone else.

I'll chalk the slow wait times, long time for the food to arrive, and cold food up to the busy opening day rush ?? I would only come back if these areas improve. The interior decor is nice, and the establishment is clean. The checkout cashiers are friendly. There is free parking in the attached parking lot.

The food is amazing and the environment was very relaxing.. The owner is a very down to earth woman... I enjoyed my evening very much so!!! Will be back!!! Please do not let the bad reviews dwindle your interest.. Everything was perfect to a T. I never ate Nigerian food and been in such amazing atmosphere. To the owner again, thank you so much for your service and hospitality!! Such a beautiful spirit she has. You can't please everyone but me and my family were beyond appreciative of such food and ambiance.

The food is simply amazing. Real taste of Africa. The staff is very professional. You cannot go wrong with that place. If you have a chance to meet the owner, she will make you feel so comfortable that you will think she is your aunty hahahha.I love the place and don't mind driving almost an hour just to pick up my food. Yes an hour...that's how good it is!

Just had lunch here and tried the pepper soup with goat. Very traditional African and very tasty. The soup was dark, rich and earthy with chunks of goat w/bones. I ordered the spicy which had my nose running and I eat very spicy food. Not a huge fan of the goat with little bones but thats pretty traditional and adds to the flavor when cooking. I will certainly go back and will try the same but with fish. The place was clean and the service was good especially from the owner who came and out and talked to me. Really nice lady.

Sooo since this pandemic happened, DoorDash has become my BFF.. I could never find a decent African restaurant that deliveredbut GOD!! HE answered my prayers per usual..Komchop was above and beyond what I expected!! I've had the Fresh Fish Pepper Soup(ALWAYS helps when my allergies are going haywire!!), Vegetable Soup and Egusi, all were delicious and the assorted meats were cooked to tender perfection!! Thanks Komchop, u have a new friend in me

OMG the Jollof Spaghetti is SO GOOD! African foods are one of my favorite cuisines. I ordered to go from Komchop for the 1st time & I was really impressed by the food. I definitely would love to dine-in next time & explore other menu options. & FYI, I read a few reviews about the size portions. My size portions was a lot! One order felt like it was for 2 people. It was a lot of food. The price was also decent, you have to understand that with African cuisines there's a lot of ingredients & work into it. It doesn't come cheap. It's not fast food, it's a cuisine.

This place has a true authentic Nigerian flavor and you can tell they use quality ingredients. One of the best jollof and fried rice. My Husband is a Nigerian who cooks exceptionally well and is picky and this place is his favorite in the West Houston area !

Currently one of the cleanest Nigerian restaurants (restroom included) in Houston. Owner has promised to keep it that way.Food, service and ambiance are currently great.Let's hope it won't follow the disappointing trend of some other Nigerian restaurants that started well only to go downhill from there......with noticeable disregard.Keep it up, Komchop.......so we can continue to come chop.

Upon entrance to this place on Sunday July 7th around 3 p.m. we were greeted by a tall nicely dressed well-spoken gentleman, who escorted us to our table and seated us. first impression from the entrance of the restaurant to being seated was highly favorable and we were quite pleased. The table was set quite nicely and the menus on the table were very high-end and suited for the environment. Shortly, into our being seated at a table, the same waiter kindly asked to please allow ourselves to be escorted to a different table as there was a large party being expected where we were seated currently; we obliged. The food prices were comparable to the area, but were more reasonably priced than Abuja Cafe, located a mile or so down on the same street, Westheimer. As we studied the well put together menu, our waiter suggested that we try the coconut rice which we were very pleased to hear but since my husband had it the day before elsewhere he decided to try something on the menu presented today as this was our first visit to KomChop . We were served bottled water, which is customary at most Nigerian restaurants, but we both agreed that we would have preferred to have a nice glass pitcher of iced water or tea offered to pour into our glasses by the waiter OR the pitcher to be left on the table to use as we needed. The bottled water was a mismatch for the type of vibe this restaurant gave us. After ordering our food and about a 5 to 7 minute wait, we were pleasantly approached with a nicely arranged small platter of warm bread and pats of butter. Yum and unexpected! The expected party of guests slowly started making their way in and from that point on our service went down from a solid "9" to about a "2". The kind gentleman who had seated us and reseated us AND who had taken our order....was NO MORE! Within a matter of minutes of the larger parties guests being seated we started to see food, bread, water and full dishes of food being served at their table even though we had already been there over 15 minutes AFTER our order was placed. We waited for a total of 25 minutes for our food to be brought out and only MY dish came out because my husbands banga soup , pounded yam was not quite ready. So I was with plate in front of me for a full 10 minutes or better, as my husband had to watch me eat my beautifully presented, Jollif rice, Chicken, Spinach and plantains. Of course we ate off of the same plate so as to not have mine sitting getting cold. The food was nicely portioned on my elongated porcelain platter. .but it seriously lacked any taste!! Let me be clear, the flavor was wonderful; however there was no seasoning at all and it was almost unbearable to eat. Bland!!! My husband's food finally came out and he said that it was flavored very nicely but it needed salt as his too was very bland. We waited over 5 minutes from the time we requested salt until the time we received it. We watched three staff ( the main one was our waiter) attend to this one party of guests of 10, as we were only ever approached ONE other time buy a staff to check on us after my husband finally received his meal from that same waiter, we never again encountered HIM, the waiter, who originally took our order and seated us.... even upon leaving the establishment! On the way out I asked for the name of who our waiter was, and was NOT told his name but was told he is the Owner. Wow.

I am very disappointed, I love Nigerian food, but this place NO!First off, when I arrived I asked the hostess (Stella) if they do take out? She tells me yes and in the same breath tells me to go online and see what I want, (so you telling me that I have to go on my phone and look up your restaurant and pull up the menu), I then tell her never mind because I was leaving, she then tells me she has a menu, why act like that when you have menus on every table. So I guess to distract me she tells me, “oh, by the way I like your hair “, I say thank you and proceed with my order, I get the jollof rice, plantains and goat meat. Just let me tell you the “food was horrible!!!” I only received three pieces of goat meat that were so TOUGH that I couldn't even eat it, my whole experience was horrible from start to finish, their internet wasn't working and she had to restart the system so I could pay. I definitely won't go back, I should of followed my first mind and go to the Wazobia Market. I will never come back to this place!!!!

Worst Restaurant in Houston!!! The interior made me patronize them, I asked for pounded yam and egusi soup.. they taught I wasn't Nigerian.. they served me a sour egusi soup which gave me diarrhea and the pounding wasn't 100% pounded.. was missed with garri or so..( because they taught I'm not Nigerian and won't know the difference) I complained about this and asked me are you Nigerian? Can you imagine that.. pls don't eat there. They only have a well designed interior but the food is wack and will make you have diarrhea for 2 days at least! DON'T GO THERE IF YOU LOVE CLEAN AND GOOD FOOD
