I was excited to try out this African restaurant and was excited to see it was a black owned business. I went on three separate occasions and today will be the last time I purchase anything from this restaurant. I called and placed my order and the woman over the phone told me it would be ready in 15 minutes. I got there 15 minuets later greeted the three men who were sitting there and was ignored (no big deal). I went up to the cash register where I greeted the woman. On the website the food I ordered was priced at 8.99 she told me me it was 9.99 and didnt adjust the price as it was advertised online (no big deal just 1$). I sat there and a Caucasian young man walked in instantly the owner who had just previously ignored me jumped out of his seat welcomed him offered him water and a table to sit at. (hmmmm) After tending to one of his more valuable customers I think he felt guilty and decided to come over to me and say "God bless you". I appreciate the food I ordered from here and the blessings he offered me Im also happy I was able to support a black owned business but Ill think Ill spend my money where all customers are welcomed with the same amount of hospitality.

HA, NAUSEA, VOMITING, DIARRHEA Friday: The place is small, nothing fancy, but has reasonable prices. I ordered the fish, which tasted amazing. It took one full hour to be served; I went there alone. I also brought home different entrees for my boyfriend. Saturday: Woke up NAUSEOUS, bad HEADACHE, and ended up VOMITING later that evening. Did not eat anything on Sat and had not eaten anything peculiar before the fish on Friday. My boyfriend didnt know I was sick but I later found out that he had VOMITING & DIARRHEA after eating the food (again, different entrees) I brought him.
I actually loved the food I got from here. I saw the if-y reviews but decided to give it a chance anyway. I ordered egussi with fufu & jollof rice. This was my very first time trying African food so it didnt look great to me but it was soooooo good. I only spent $10 & some change. Its very cozy inside, nice atmosphere. But for some reason the waitress/server kept saying that she couldnt understand what I was saying. Then I realized there was no fufu in my bag after I left, which I really wanted to try. I would recommend trying the place out for yourself

Anthony Bourdain could easily feature this place on one of his shows. Its a casual, unassuming joint that serves true home cooked West African cuisine. My husbands cousins husband (how confusing is that?) is from Cameroon and loves this place. Wed have never thought to try it without his recommendation. I was blown away by the roasted tilapia I ordered - they serve the entire fish! My husband ordered goat ndolle and it was equally delicious. Definitely, definitely eat here. Were looking forward to returning!

I am a regular at this neighborhood jewel. Its a cozy spot with a lot of character! The food is very affordable with most of the dishes being under $15. When I am craving a home-cooked meal and dont feel like cooking, I go here. Ive had the jollof rice, limbe beef, roasted fish, sautéed spinach, fufu, and Im sure several other dishes. The food is always fresh and served hot. Mr. Patrick and his staff are awesome hosts. I highly encourage a visit to Roger Miller. #CityExperts
An excellent restaurant! The food is superb. I have taken one star away because the restaurant is small and cramped, but this should in no way deter you from enjoying the hospitality and food of this unique place. I have been there twice and thoroughly enjoyed myself both times. All the food is good, but I do caution that the bitter leaf dishes are, at least for me, an acquired taste. Highly recommended.
I came here to order goat pepper soup and was given 3 pieces of goat meat (1 being very small and mostly bone) AH AH!! dis is not da way oh...I wish I could include a pic. It was tasty but a total rip off. I think its worth another try, but I will definitely check my food thoroughly before I pay next time. Will be back with an update after my next visit
Exquisite West African food you can taste in this place. My expectations were high. The food to the point of taste, fresh and very good. Good friendly staff and helps you when choosing any dish, giving recommendations of the same. Comfortable place to dine.
Took too long to get the food, I wasnt sure what to expect as a Nigerian (its a west african restaurant) but it was not bad. It wasnt Nigerian jollof rice but good enough. It was quite busy were we got there and the gentleman was very accommodating.
I ordered pepper soup and when they brought it out, it looked like water and palm oil. Since when did pepper soup contain palm oil? Plus i ordered beef and the female stood there, trying to convince me it wa beef and not goat
My first time trying West African food in the area. Yummy, but I wasntused to the intense flavor of the bitter leaves dish. However, Jollof rice and fried wings were super good! Ill be back for more!
the Yassa chicken was amazing and fried plantain to die for...didnt have to wait long for my food either....people here are very polite and amazing as well....would definitely be coming here again!

The food was delicious. The service was friendly. My wife and I are going back! The food is not pre-prepared; there is a wait time, but well worth it. Did I mention the food is delicious?
Please!!!! Dont ever go there they are serving rotten food. The owner is a scammer and he used the name Roger Miller to attract a particular community. He is a scammer!!! A big one!
We didnt really enjoy the food after trying two appetizers and two entrees. We might have just ordered the wrong food for our taste. The staff was very friendly and very busy.
First time visiting an authentic African restaurant. The owner suggest a stew and it was very tasty and good size portion. Will be going back to try the roasted fish.
BYOB. Genuine, friendly though not "attentive" white table cloth type of service. Tasty and cheap. BYOB. Water was not filtered so get water there besides wine!
Tasty food for cheap. I tried the plantains and engussi stew. Everyone else I dined with enjoyed their meal too! Ambiance is nonexistent, but its clean and cute.

Awesome. Great deals everyday. Healthy meals and cheap ones. Are you looking for African food in Silver Spring, MD? Then you should definitely give it a try.
Ordered for a specific time for pick up. They didnt have it ready even though I told 3 different people beforehand that I needed it at that time.
Piss poor service and food rice is burned and so is the shrimp and took over a hour to be served the food terrible wont me going back.
The food is great here, love it; my first time trying west African food thats taste great and not greasy and stank. The owners nice too
Great food! The shrimp engussi is the best and the jellof rice is amazing. Never tried anything here that I didnt like.
The server was very nice but the food has no taste. The food didnt look good or taste good. Worst food I ever ate.
