It was my first time trying African food. The owner, Nina, took the time to explain to me that her food is from western Africa. She was very kind. Her food was so delicious and fresh. I like that it's like a deli style and ready right away. I will definitely become a regular customer. 😌
Oh. My. Goodness. The GINGER LEMONADE…..I visited this restaurant after leaving Minnesota. I had never tasted ginger lemonade before in my entire life. I had decided to bring a half gallon of it home. I just couldn’t help it. I had to have some. It is so addictive! The owner, Nina, is a great cook. this is the restaurant you will not be able to just eat at one time. You’re going to end up going back again and again. And if you have one sip of her ginger lemonade, you’re in trouble! Lol. The food is amazing as well so if you can get around to going please do. I wound up talking to Nina and asking her her story about how she started the restaurant and it was just an incredible story. I hope she will share it with you as well.

Some of the best African food I've ever eaten! Must check it out! Amazing egousie! 👏 10/10
I've never had African food outside of Moroccan, and this food was so delicious! I got the Peanut Butter Chicken and wow! Best savory peanut butter sauce I've ever had. I loved the veggies and the plantains! I even got extra. Definitely worth it. We will be back for sure. Yummy in the tummy!
This is for the adventuresome. Need something different tonight, this the place to go. Try it and you enjoy it.
Excellent food. Given the size of the portions and quality is well worth the cost. Staff was also friendly and helpful.

I read Nina’s Story on the website and have been anxious to try Okra African Grill. My daughter and I enjoyed lunch there today, and it was a fantastic experience from the moment we walked in the door. Take the time to learn about Nina’s inspiring story and show some love to this wonderful restaurant - you won’t be disappointed!
This is the best place ever! Food was amazing, staff Is friendly! I mean even owner was there to greet and talk about her food! All of it she makes homemade!!!
This was the first time we came here. We tried the build-a-bowl. One with lamb, grilled vegetables, garlic potatoes, and fried plantains. The other one was chicken, garlic potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, sweet corn and fried plantains. We got the sauce on the side so we could try the peanut sauce and the tomato sauce. Both were very good. The tomato sauce has a little kick to it, just the right amount. The food was delicious! 👍😍 We will definitely be back. I forgot to take pictures, but the other pictures on these reviews are excellent. We had plenty for leftovers to take home and will enjoy them later. 😊
I absolutely love this restaurant. HOWEVER, there is one big downfall and it happens everytime I order it. I love the kabobs. you get 3 cubed meat pieces. Most times I get 1 edible cube and the other 2 are gritty and full of fat. So at $4 a kabob and one edible piece it ends up being $22/lb. If I didn't love the flavor so much, I'd stop trying them. It's unfortunate to see such poor quality at such a high price.
Had the pork bowl, peanut chicken bowl, beef kabobs and large order of plantains. The food was delicious! We love supporting local family run businesses. Nina and Fabio are the best!
