Okay. After doing a few writings on some of the 15 African Caterers to check out in London and even a detailed piece on the Best 20 Ghanaian Restaurants and Food Pop-ups in London; it was inevitable that a Nigerian Restaurants in London Guide had to follow. Now; this isn’t an exhaustive list as there are loads of established and newly opened up-and-running Nigerian restaurants and food pop-ups in London; these are a handful (some you may have heard of or know very well and others not so much) yet well reviewed London based Nigerian food joints.
As well as restaurants; there is also a growing Supper Club scene; Groundnut Supper Club in New Cross, Jason’s Little Kitchen in West London and Lemlem’s Eritrean Kitchen are some to name a few but here I’m focussing exclusively on Nigerian inspired and owned London based food enterprises. By the Agege Bread London may not be a Restaurant but this Nigerian inspired Patisserie and Bakery has been running since 2005 in Ireland and the UK. Certainly deserve a shout-out.

Restaurant. Takeaway and VIP Lounge ‘Presidential Suya’ is visible on the long Old Kent Road/New Kent Road area in Elephant and Castle, South East London. A couple of mixed reviews here and there but overall a great place to dine. A rather spacious restaurant disguised (sort of) across three unit. Aside from the Take Away Section, the second is the Restaurant and the third is the Bar and lounge. These guys have been running for almost twenty years. A reliable and efficient service. You won’t be disappointed.
