I tried it once & couldn't get enough. If you like spicy (I LOVE spicy), you'll love Akwaba. The decor not fab, but the food is great, portions are large and the price, well you just can't go wrong.

The food here is consistently good. Also great to check out if you're on a budget. Portions are large enough to feed two. It's easy to miss this spot when you're walking by. Just look for the neon sign that says Chez Veros.
