    If you are looking for very tasty Nigerian cuisine then you should visit NOK, we had dinner and made reservations via phone call. It has an ample parking space and wasn’t too crowded, we dined indoor because it was pretty hot outside. The outdoor had a colorful garden feel. While the indoor gave a woody calm traditional feel. They gave us some potato chips while waiting for our food and the waitress was very attentive, smart and polite. I really loved the aso oke feel they had on the uniform. The food is not too pricey with today’s economy for a fine dining. We had Amala, poundo and egusi, then we had chicken wings which didn’t taste that nice. But the Amala and pounded yam was a hit super delicious! Food took about 20mins to arrive but it was worth the wait. The egusi was a little peppery, but I didn’t mind at all. The menu was limited as well not alot of options to choose from. If you are looking for intercontinental food it’s advisable not to even go there. We had the brownies and chocolate with caramel can’t really remember what it’s called on the menu but it tasted really good. Overall highly recommend!

    I had a nice Sunday Brunch here with family. The security team is quite coordinated in ensuring parking is seemless. There's parking within and outside the compound. There are two entrances to the indoor restaurant, one through the side of the building, and the other through the back of the building that takes you through the super colorful outdoor dinning area. The seating area is made up of vibrant colours of different seating areas, sun umbrellas and greenery. If choosing here, be sure to be comfortable with nature as we spotted some friendly lizards around. It was too hot to sit outside so we dined indoors. Compared to the splash of colours outside, the indoor dining area was a cool and calm decor of black and brown. Customer service was great. We felt the menu given to us was quite a narrow range of choices but we were told that was the brunch menu so appears they may have other menus for different times of the day. From the menu, you see this is like a Nigerian fusion cuisine, and each dish was well plated, and tasted really good. If there for brunch, I strongly recommend the Agege toast with honey and fresh fruits and the coconut pancakes. For mains, we had the suya chicken steak with eggs, veggies and agege bread. The steak was the hallmark of the day! Also had the peanut crusted chicken that came with sweet potato pancakes, loved loved loved the pancakes. Last order was the a peanut crusted chicken sandwich that came out like a burger with some cabbage, sauce and fried yam, seemed to be a popular order but came third for us when grading the three mains we got. We had the Passion Sunrise and NOK chapman mocktails. A member of our party said the palmwine in his Palmey Temple was not so fresh but the pink colour did look appetizing. It was overall a great experience and look forward to a repeat.

    Quiet place to chill at night. Has both outdoors and indoor seating areas. Ambience has a native African vibe. The menu echoes similar vibes with mixture of intercontinental and local dishes. My friend had the seafood okro which looked good. I had the braised ribs with jasmine rice. The stew has a sweet aftertaste so it really shouldn't be paired with a sweet rice like jasmine because you get tired of it after a few mouthfuls. Cocktails were delightful. Overall, good place.

    Came here for the Abula (Amala, Gbegiri and Ewedu) and Nok did not disappoint! I know I'll be back soon as I've not been able to get the deliciousness out of my mind. The assorted meat that came with it literally fell off the bones. No struggle. Well cooked. The palm wine was equally a treat. Great customer service too.
