About Us



Lolak Afrique is an Authentic African Buka in South East/South West London. The journey to sharing our African dishes with Londoners started in 1991.

Founded by Mama Lolak, as she is popularly known in Nigerian Community. Mama Lolak’s passion for cooking started at a young age, coming from a trading family who travelled and lived in Kano state & Lagos state Nigeria.

On arrival to England in 1991, Mama worked for the Department British Home Stores (BHS) as a kitchen assistant, quickly working her way up to Chef and Head chef where she received numerous recognition awards. Alongside her permanent job she, delivered food to Nigerian emigrants in London by Cab and at local Cab offices as well as making private meals for Nigerian dignitaries on special visits to London, which included the former Stateman of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo.

In 1994, Mama Lolak resigned from her Permanent Job to open her first shop in a single Unit on Choumert Road, Peckham SE15 where she makes sure to test her dishes before they are ready to be served.

Lolak Afrique has grown exponentially due to the demand from our people, now serving from three Branches in Peckham, Foresthill and Tulsehill.
