Wouldn't recommend this place. The smallest portions my husband and I have seen travelling two months now! Flavours didn't really seem to go together and service was nothing spectacular. Go to Joe's instead!

This West African restaurant has reasonably priced, and deliciously different, cuisine. Its location in a commercial zone (facing car showrooms), just outside the central area, is the one downside.

After reading previous reviews I was a bit uncertain how the night would go, but, wow it totally surprised me. The service was friendly, but most of all the food was super delicious. The Cameroonian Curry with Oryx and Couscous was fresh, spicy and juicy. The dessert, a couscous yogurt dessert (Senegal Speciality) was as amazing. I must admit the... More

This place is at the city centre... Great location. I have visited this place quite a number of times hoping that my experience will be better than the previous. Sadly I'm always disappointed. Other than services being slow, some food items seem to always be greasy. Especially the pizzas. Some other food does not taste fresh at all. The location... More

Visited this place because it sounded nice in our guide book. We were the only customers and it is a bit run down and in need of a good clean but the portions are huge and the food really tasty. Would recommend it but probably more for a weekend rather than a quiet weekday.

We ate lunch here and were not disappointed. Being vegetarians, we ordered a vegetable curry and vegetables with peanut sauce. Each came with white rice. The portions were large and all the food tasted delicious. The service from the young female server who spoke fluent English was excellent. The address of the restaurant was 383 Independence Avenue. But it didn't... More

I am very fond of the Fufu dishes. I loved in particular the one with peanut butter sauce, chicken and spinach. The prizes are a bit high, but worth every Cent. The equipment of the restaurant is rather traditional. if you expect something elegant you are wrong at that place. The personal is friendly. If you want to experience real... More

We wanted authentic African food, and we got it. Food was delicious, local, lots of variety and we were glad we went. Service was very prompt. Great value. Just the location is a bit off, we took a taxi and its sort of in an industrial area. Felt a little out of place, but still very glad we went, and... More
