This is the very definition of the worst restaurant in the Greater Houston area ever. I placed an order which was ice cold. The warmer for the food doesn't work. The employees don't wear gloves while serving food. I wish a health inspector will close...More

I have come to this restaurant so many times, and it always lives up to expectations. On this occasion I came with my wife, our baby and my mother, to give them an African treat. The food: different West African delicacies mostly leaning towards the...More

First of all, Finger Licking is not one of the cleanest restaurants you are likely to visit. The interior has a perennially stale odor and is garish, dank and dim. The food itself is excellent if you have a taste for Nigerian food and the...More

The food was okay but pricey compared to other Nigeria restaurants. The staff were horsing around inappropriately in front of us, trying to grab each other's private. The whole restaurants needs a fresher, healthier look, special attention to proper manners and the bathrooms.

Tried this place for the second time and it's just not for me. It's in a bad part of town, the restaurant looks a little run down and the atmosphere is kind of quite and creepy. Ordered fu fu and soup. We just had this...More

Great services from the staff. Some of the best we've ever experienced. I LOVE spicy food, so everything served was perfect and delicious. Very different from the average family restaurant, which was great; I get bored easily. Not to mention, much more affordable than the...More
