My husband and I went with another couple to this restaurant. The food was fantastic, in particular, the ribs were to die for! We heard different African dialects being spoken at the tables, which gave the dining experience an exotic/authentic feel for my husband and...More

From the outside you'll be mistaken for underrating this place, go in and you'll see a cozy but inviting place, great staff and quality East African food. Portion sizes are large so be careful not to over order.

Well worth the wait to try this restaurant! Chef Kurshid is a gracious host, loading the plates with large portions of mouth-watering food. Once he found out we were vegetarians he made some great suggestions. The machicha, kiyoga and coconut chutney were delicious. The naan...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
