Warm staff and home made food. Great selection of beers and delicate flavours from central Africa. Highly recommended for a funky night in Brussels. Also excellent for remote working, sipping fresh mint tea and getting some work done. Thumbs up!

Not the best African restaurant in Brussels, but def interesting, with a nice vibe to it. Desserts were a tad disappointing, service quite slow.

Should visit that place if you like new experience. Food is very delicious and you can have a taste of african cuisine. Quality of the service is good and price are moderate. If you come with the car pay attention that it is not easy to find parking places

One of my favorite restaurants in Brussels. Amazing food - you must try the chicken wings (starters) and the "Dibi" (grilled lamb) if you like meat, or the Liboke if you're into fish. The crocodile is also really worth it! My favorite side dishes are the plantains, and the sweet potatoes are really good too. The cocktails are delicious, unique... More

the Food was good (mocqueca with fish, and mafe originally ordered with poultry), but they gave me the wrong kind of meat, which was disappointing. But the sauce was really good (some kind of peanut sauce) and the staff was so nice (they explained everything in Detail to us). we also ordered the akwaba as a starter and really liked... More

Had a great evening here where we had some delicious food which came in generous portions. The waitress was super lovely and friendly so no one minded that the food took a while to come. Had the 22 euro menu which was definitely worth it.

The restaurant does live up to its name. Lovey spot, decor, authentic. Service is good but just so slow it is impractical to go unless your lunch hour is more like two. Despite quickly ordering we waited over an hour. Lovely menus, quality food (including the description of some of them!). Wished I could have been in a place where... More

went there with colleagues for lunch. Place is big, clean, bright. I won't say that the prices are lower than the average in Brussels (count +/- 10 - 18 euros the main dish). My dish (fish and prawn in red curry, palm oil, and coconut) was very tasty. The quantities are fine for me, but i'm not a big eater,... More
