    This food was very delicious. Very tasty. The best I have had in a while. I travel all the way from Connecticut. I will definitely be going again. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and the service was amazing. Definitely definitely will recommend this to a lot of people.

    I’ve never left a review before, but this special little restaurant is such a GEM that I want to give it the attention it deserves.

    Impression: Yop City serves a small menu of lovingly prepared West African dishes in a sweet little restaurant nestled between so many Italian spots along Arthur Ave. I wasn’t super hungry walking in, but I got the feeling from speaking with the owner that this is the kind of place that takes real pride in what they do so I wanted to try the food, hungry or not. I’m really glad I did. The meal and the vibe were on the money. We ordered the grilled lamb with white rice and the ginger drink. It was a beautiful dish… well seasoned and exceptionally tender chops (and an excellent portion) with an onion and pepper relish that added a good deal of heat and acid, perfectly balancing the richness of the meat and rice. It was a hearty meal but we devoured it all. This was an impressive dish and good enough to recommend the restaurant on its own. The ginger drink was made with lots of fresh ginger and citrus, just a little sweet with a hell of a gingery kick. They had African music playing that got us moving in our seats and laughing with the other customers (all west African but us) who couldn’t help but move to the music while they waited on their orders. We left feeling full, happy, and like someone’s mother had cooked a meal just for us.

    Recommendation: Make this a destination or check ‘em out if you’re in the neighborhood.

    So delicious. I feel like I just traveled to Abidjan and my grandma cooked all of my favorite foods. This food is authentic, the service is phenomenal, and the owners are so sweet. If you’ve never had west African food, this place will make you wonder what you’ve been doing your whole life. GO IN THERE, YOU WONT REGRET IT!

    Absolutely delicious. One of the best meals I've ever had. The main issue is that I ate too much because it was so delicious! That's my fault, obviously. 🤣 The guinea fowl was like duck and chicken combined with a unique flavor. Sooo good. It should be a more popular meat. The lamb dishes were amazing. The best lamb shank I've ever had. It's actually hard to make that really well. I liked the other lamb dish even more. It was cooked really well. The food was different than anything I've ever tried. Very well seasoned/marinated. Already telling my friends about it and they want to go.

    One of the best meals I’ve ever had in New York. Roast Guinea fowl with rice. Could serve two, I ate the whole thing myself. Go to this restaurant.
