Nok by Alara Review

THE FOOD: Looking for spicy continental rare African food? Yes you’re in the right place. Their food is different and delicious, if you love experimenting with your taste buds I’d personally recommend here. Recreated continental dishes that are well cooked and served. You’d have to taste it to feel what I’m saying. Their Red red bean stew with steamed plantain is just so delicious, with varying flavours at each bite. A personal fave I’d recommend is the Ghanaian rice and beans, not being a lamb fan? Then the lamb mafe may not be for you. Putting into words the genuine taste of their food would be undermining it’s worth but Nok is surely not a regrettable visit for a true explorer.
THE AMBIENCE: Indoors and outdoors they nailed the décor by far. Have you seen the Legendary ALARA red wall? Home to major photoshoot sessions, I think the great part about ALARA is how the touch of the fashion house extends to the entire environment, and the backyard?! It’s a playground of colors and uncommon furniture great for pictures for the GRAM, and the indoors? Home to the famous photo frame wall, it’s neat, clean and classy with great ventilation toned with eye calming wall colors and gorgeous chandeliers.
CHARGES: ALARA is a bit on the high side but if you’re looking to spoil yourself with a classy environment and uncommon treats? Awesome. Their services are great, snappy, polite and considerate.
