Reviews for Golden Safari

I ordered the jollof rice with chicken and plantains and a side of fried rice. I enjoyed the plantains and the jollof but I didn't like the chicken and fried rice. The chicken was too mushy and cold and the fried rice had no flavor. With that being said, I still see myself visiting again to try the other dishes.  As a Nigerian, the cuisine is 100% authentic and a solid representation for someone trying Nigerian food for the first time.

Let me start by saying the jollof rice is amazing. Exact flavor profile as jambalaya rice. I ordered Egusi soup, the cashier recommended the chicken. The soup & chicken were extremely underwhelming. The soup was minimal. I asked if that's how it is served or could I have more broth and was politely told no. The chicken was two small legs, obviously not freshly made. It was chewy & dry. The fufu was a pleasant surprise, although I wish I had SOUP to dip it in. Portions are full review

First time trying fufu with okra and egusi soup and it was delicious! I should've ordered it spicy bc I felt like i needed that kick but even without the spice it was super flavorful! Also got the fried plantains which were a little plain for me but still ate them with the soup!
