Northwest London’s favourite hotspot for African cuisine has to be 280 Degrees, conveniently located on Kilburn High Road close to the station and Brondesbury underground. While the talent in the kitchen focuses on Nigerian and West African delicacies, 280 Degrees offers more than just food that’s good for the soul; the restaurant is a great place to socialise, whether at the fully-stocked bar or out on the dancefloor kicking up some dust to some premium Yoruban tunes and Afrobeat. And don’t forget this London African restaurant’s tempting happy hours and lunchtime specials!
We must mention first off that 280 Degrees is a great place to hire out for your next celebration. The staff always gives diners a warm welcome to the Kilburn High Road premises, and it’s this kind of hospitality that aids and abets the fine food and drink on offer when it comes to creating an unbeatable party atmosphere, whether you’re hosting a birthday, anniversary, or even a wedding reception. Plus, bonus, there’s complimentary Champagne for your guests! Other events, less glamorous but fantastic all the same, happen every day at northwest London’s beloved 280 Degrees – we’re talking weekday specials and lunch deals that land you a spread of jollof rice plus Nigerian stew for less than a fiver.
280 Degrees’ a la carte menu is bursting with dishes that embody the colour and flavour of African and Nigerian cuisine. Start your feast at this Kilburn African restaurant with nibbles like suya and fried yam, akara and fried plantain. Traditional West African soups like the catfish pepper soup and ofe nsala (white soup), or salads like the abacha with stockfish or ugba with your choice of meats (go for goat for an authentic taste) are great ways to get into the groove. If you do book a table at this northwest London gem – and you should to avoid disappointment – we recommend you try the very traditional isi-ewuspecial. Enjoy the highlife at 280 Degrees tonight.
The ambience was great and the food was really good. My husband and I love their Nkwobi but the Abacha and Ugba did not particularly hit the mark for us. But bearing in mind that we are after all in the UK, it was a great time last night.
It was good food. Freshly prepared and on time. Although they opening times was not as it said on google but overall good food. I will visit again
The food was nice. The restaurant looks nice and clean. I did not like the fact that they overcharged us with no good explanation though...
