The place is great! I got a loaded tea and a shake, and they were fantasitc! The “Captain America” is really delicious and kicked me with energy, and the Cinnamon Toast Crunch shake got me feeling good and well when I went to work out, good protein in it, and it wasn't chalky. I love this place lots!

The Nigerian food I enjoyed at Secret Recipe was outstanding. But wow, was it spicy (hot)! Certainly it cleared my nostrils and sinuses. What was interesting, as I recall, was that rather than the meat being spicy, and the rice being mild, it was the opposite: the bed of rice carried so much flavor and spice, and while the meat was indeed quite tender and flavorful, in terms of "heat," it was mild in comparison to the rice.It was our first visit, and the young man working there was most helpful and explanatory. Unfortunately I don't recall his name, but he made sure to help me choose a dish at or within a spice level I could tolerate; I also had a choice of about three different meats (e.g., beef, pork, chicken) to pair with the rice.

Rori soup was well seasoned but the stewed beef was tougher than jerky. It was completely inedible. Chicken skewer was also tougher than jerky - albeit very well seasoned. The pounded yam fufu was good. Won't be coming back.

Great food and nice customer service. First time visit and was impressed.. highly recommended.

Review №6

Great portion sizes. Workers are always nice. No long wait time 5 minutes of less. Overall a great African Resurant

Review №7

The food is not bad is just that it is heated in a microwave and that makes the flavor very weird. If you don't like spicy food, there's no option without spice because everything is pre cooked. I suggest that you guys buy food warmers, because in this cass the food will be warm and ready to go.

Having lived in Nigeria as a kid many years ago, I was delighted when my brother discovered African Flavor in Secret Recipe. We'll definitely be back for more!

Review №11

Would give none if I could. This was not good at all, suya was a brick like almost chipped a tooth (good thing I have dental!!). The rice, plantains, and chicken were okay, nothing to write home about. Taste like old Nigerian party rice. The "cook" was microwaving my food in the back - I didn't think the food was mine at first, cause there was NO way that a restaurant would be microwaving food trying to pass it off as freshly cooked. When she brought out the suya on the plate that she microwaved it on, I knew that the food wasn't going to be good. I was right! Won't be returning.
