If you are staying near Denver airport and want to be adventurous, come here. I loved the food. As in Africa, everything was cooked fresh. This means it takes awhile. Since I was with a friend catching up, it was perfect for us. It was a little spendy but for me and my friend it was worth it.

We were blown away by the food at the African Grill. Unusual, tasty, large portions and spicy but not hot. We had a sampler platter with goat, African yam, and a variety of other unique items. Cost was $35 for two people, which wasn't bad at all considering how much food we got. the staff were super-friendly, and very attentive.... More

If you're like me, you may be a little hesitant to experiment with African food... and in Aurora... come on, right? Wow, am I glad I tried this place. The owners are from Ghana and make you feel welcomed the minute you open the door. Don't let the shopping center location fool you. This lady has put her excellent touch... More

We went here after friends encouraged us to try something new. Everything from the plantains to the chicken and rice were excellent!

If you have to stay at a Denver Airport hotel or live in the area, this place is worth trying. If you are reading this review, I am going to assume you are an adventurous eater. I am not an expert of African food, but I can tell you this is good food. The owner came out and explained everything... More

Awesome experience! Me and my girlfriend went for dinner one night, and got what was essentially a sample platter.

I loved the groundnut soup, fried plantains and the stew. The Fufu is an acquired taste.. Cassava in general is an acquired taste but if you like adventure then the goat and moimoi should do it.

My wife and I have been to this restaurant three times now, twice with another person. I am referring to their second location on Tower Road. All three times we have had a delicious meal and our guests enthusiastically agreed with us. As I understand it, the food on the menu represents many countries in Africa but the owners themselves...

Decided to finally give this restaurant a shot and support the local businesses. We won't be going back. The server couldn't give us a recommendation on a dish, didn't know if they had draft beer, and wasn't sure later what diet sodas they had. Maybe it was her first day. I ordered the lamb, she served me chicken. When she... More

I have been here a couple of times to get a feel. The first time it was warm and inviting the wait is too long. I noticed the second time that the wait is way too long because all that is being done is heating the food in the microwave, it was cooked a day or so before which explained... More
