    Our waitress was amazing, very friendly & accommodating. The service was mediocre - we had reservations & waited 20+ minutes to be seated, the food was served in to-go plates and the drinks were terrible. We had a decent time, but it wasn’t what was expected based off of their social media content.

    My only issues are the amount of time it took to get the food, the fact that there is only one bathroom for each gender (it gets way too crowded for that), the space is very tight at the booths upon entrance I had patrons literally sitting on/at my table waiting to be seated while I ate (NOT OK) and lastly the hidden fees not on the menu or mentioned from the beginning I don’t kno I went from $75 based on menu prices to $110 after taxes and gratuity

    This place is a good time. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because we had a reservation for 9:30pm but was seated at 10pm. The vibe was nice though so the wait wasn't bad.

    I absolutely loved the adult lounge. Its only for 21+ . The staff was super friendly and attentive. Everything was reasonable priced as we went during their happy hour from 1p-7p. They had $5 lamb chops , $1 wings , $5 shots & $5 Margaritas. The food was amazing , the atmosphere definitely put the icing on the cake. They had an amazing photographer around 6pm that came around and you’re able to get your pictures sent directly to your phone.

    I arrive on time for a reservation that I made almost a week in advance. I waited in line for nearly 45 minutes and I was finally approached by a staff member asking if I had a reservation. Once they located my reservation I was then told that it would be almost two hours before I could be seated. I asked what’s the point of reservations if you still have an extended wait just like all the walk up customers? This was a huge inconvenience and I was entertaining out of town guests and this really threw off our plans for the evening.

    I’m generally not that person to write a negative review but, I was disappointed in my experience. Full transparency, I was late, and they still held my place for thirty minutes and I was very appreciative of that! So while, yes they held my table, but I honestly felt like I was bamboozled. My SOLE reason for choosing this place on this day was because they advertise an R n B night on Thursdays. What we walked into was NOT that. I immediately felt like I walked into the club. I couldn’t hear myself think, breath or anything else like it was just too much. When I asked the waitress about the RnB vibes, she looked at me like she was lost and then said oh they do a lil bit. My party was not pleased, and neither was i. We left, I didn’t want a drink or anything…it was overwhelming to say the least.

    Food was great and came out fast. Server didn’t care that hookah was never refilled and even asked if we tipped the hookah lady. Which was rude, we did and STILL never received a refill on coals. Black girl with braids, do better.

    Awful! Booked a birthday reservation for 5:00 pm arrived unprofessional valet and told restaurant was closed please adjust availability on OpenTable or communicate with patrons if your business is not operating at hours posted (doubt I’ll return) too many businesses with similar offerings to deal with unorganization…Pasha was able to accommodate

    We had an amazing time at Teranga City. The service was top notch for our party of 9. The food was “Chefs Kiss”! Jollof rice was approved by my Nigerian husband. The lobster bites, snapper, and salmon were fire. We enjoyed the bottomless mimosas as well. Shoutout to the manager Silas for hooking us up! The DJ and vibes were emaculant. We will definitely be back!

    Parking is $20 so be aware. The food was great. We ordered the lamb skewers, snapper, chicken & waffles and wings and all was great except the wings (too small). The DJ was great! He had us singing and dancing the whole time. The tables are small but our host moved us to the VIP section which worked perfectly and was greatly appreciated.

    Should’ve know not to dine here as soon I got there. As soon as I sat down I had about 2 workers come up to me asking me if I want a hookah. I just sat down, it 80 degrees outside and I didn’t even get a menu yet. We asked the server if the crab cakes were fried and the server didn’t even know. She didn’t know the name of the brand of alcohol of the shots and was not educated on the menu at all. It took 35 mins to get our food and drinks. The food menu is limited and over priced and so are the drinks. They even charge $5 for a bottle of water and don’t offer alternatives like tap water. I love to support black owned businesses but they need to hold themselves to a higher standard especially if they are charging that much money for something my 10 year old nephew can cook. I was highly disappointed from the service to the food to the over priced parking. I don’t even write review but I had to write one for this place because it was overall terrible!!!

    Parking was inconsistent. Everyone was told different prices to pay for the same area. Music was good. Drinks were okay. Food was decent and was priced appropriately (We went during happy hour). All the food came out in togo containers which was extremely tacky. Overall, I wouldn't go back.

    One of the best stops in the city of Atlanta and we’re from Miami! It was fun, service was friendly and in point! The security check before entering made you feel extra safe! Hookah was on point! $1 wings were crazy good, $5 Lamb chops were perfect and Drinks were on point and they kept them coming! 10 out of 10 and I don’t do reviews! This place made me do a review! I’ll definitely be back and still talking about it

    The service was horrible. Barely seen the waitress. Took forever to get drinks or food. Then when our food was served it was in to go boxes. Then the waitress said our reservations would be over in 30 mins! Excuse me why does it take 1.5 hrs to get 1 drink and food! Never offered water we had to ask and then they wanted to charge us! No AC or any air for that matter it was extremely hot. The manager said they ended happy hour 2 hrs early because there was no AC.

    Parking was $10-20 around 7pm on Thursday. We were seated immediately. Food and drinks were good. Hookah was mediocre and took a while to come out. Overall I would come back. Wasn’t bad for happy hour vibes and the DJ was good.

    My reservation was for 415 I was not seated until 515 because I was told to wait because the only table they had was in the sun outside. The food we ordered had to be sent back three times. The bottomless mimosas were flat and I told him three times it was my friends birthday, and they did nothing And I had a great party atmosphere, but the customer service sucked the best thing about the place was the food

    The food was awesome and authentic. They drinks were delicious as well. However, we hardly saw our waitress and she forgot to put in our appetizers. We reminder her at the end of our meal. I think our appetizers should have been taken off the ticket. Nonetheless, we still gave her a tip.

    Food was good vibes and music was good . For a reservation party of 9 there was absolutely no spacing for my 1 table that seated 6. Need to better accommodate large parties. Would not allow us to relocate to 2 empty table. Website states large parties the reservation is good for 3 hours but when you get there every reservation is only good for 2 hours.

    Please note it’s the typical ATL parking $10 or $20 which is separate from the restaurant. The happy hour specials were amazing! The shrimp tacos and lamb chops with the onion sauce were GREAT! Drinks are good as well. However the hookah isn’t properly advertised or explained. Hookah was $25 because we went after 5pm but the hookah had to be paid upfront and ended up being $33. I highly recommend making a reservation. Cool vibes for Atlanta! Service could’ve been a bit better. Bottle girls just sitting around smoking hookah and not having sense of urgency. I waited 15 minutes before a waitress came. Didn’t even offer water.
