About Nile River Restaurant:
Owner Akec Aguer was born in South Sudan and fled his home in midst of civil war, landing in Buffalo via Egypt. He and his young family waited for U.N. refugee status in Egypt for three years but on April 18, 2003 they arrived in Buffalo with their three children (including Garang), resettled by Catholic Charities. Since he arriving in Buffalo, Akec has graduated from Buffalo State and has an associate degree from ECC in hospitality. He is proud of his six children who have attended some combination of Catholic Academy, Canisius High School, St. Bonaventure College, and now Sacred Heart Academy. He and Garang were on the waitlist for the Bazaar for five years and are proud to share their love of their country's cuisine with Western New York.
