Goat with Rice

“Great place to enjoy authentic Somali food. Like having a meal prepared by your very own auntie. The service was also good — very gracious and attentive staff. I recommend the goat. There is a masjid just a couple of doors down to conveniently make your salah after enjoying your meal or while you wait.Dietary restrictions: Halal food and low sodium.Wheelchair accessibility: Not enough space for a wheelchair — kind of small/tight seating area.“

“Service was excellent, and food was surprisingly nice. I had Amala with gbegiri and ewedu. It was delicious.I also ordered the Ewa agoyin plate, jollof rice place and oat-fufu and ogbono to go. I tasted the jollof rice. The smell and flavor of "party jollof" was on point, but the rice itself was not cooked through.I also tried some of my Ewa Agoyin. The beans itself was nice, but their agoyin sauce did not come through at all, and so that "agoyin flavor was missing"! The sauce makes the meal. It seems to be missing an important ingredient, more palmoil and that deep frying of the pepper. The fried plantain was not soft. It was chewy and rubbery.Overall, compared to many other Nigerian restaurants that I have tried, I will give them an 8 out of 10, which means I would go back for some meals and definitely the service!!“

“No complaints here! I am addicted to their smoked chicken samosas. The Ethiopian style lamb and chicken tibs are delicious! The owners are very nice and welcoming. It's a very chill lowkey spot, the perfect atmosphere to enjoy company over a good meal. The cakes they offer are the perfect finish to everything off. They are getting ready to change locations, but I'm sure the new spot will be just as warm and inviting.“

“There doesn’t seem to be Nigerian Restaurants in Fort Worth, so I poured over reviews at different spots in the Arlington area and settled on this place. My son is 7 and he’s very picky so I had super low expectations for him to like anything. He insisted on trying goat. I got Egusi with beef and Iyan. Jollof, plantain, chicken wing, and fish. I also got Zobo and Palm Wine.Wow! This is my first time trying Nigerian food so I don’t have anything to compare this to. Everything has a little kick to it but not so spicy it’s unenjoyable.My son loved the goat so much, I only got a tiny bit of one piece (only came with two pieces). The Egusi is good, the flavors are good. My only complaint is that maybe the goat and beef could’ve been just a tiny bit more tender.Not a fan of the fish. It was dry and probably old, flavorless. She did ask if I wanted sauce but I declined, so this could be my fault ??‍♀️Some commented about cigarette tasting Jollof. Okay, it does have that smell and flavor. However, I’m pretty sure it’s a spice and/or the method in which the rice is cooked. Regardless, it’s good. It reminds me of our Jambalaya (minus the smoke taste). I’ve had better plantain but it wasn’t bad, just not fresh. I probably should’ve warned them.The Zobo has the most odd combination of flavors and at first my tastebuds were at war with each other trying to decide if this is good. I’ve made the executive decision that it is really good, different for sure, but it works. Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of the palm wine. It taste like apple cider vinegar and rice vinegar and other vinegars.The 30 min drive was worth it. The fact that my son ate and got full makes me happy because he literally doesn’t like anything. Now I gotta learn how to cook Nigerian food for him. Who wants to teach me? lol“
