Djambe is the right place for low budget and some exotic food. We (colleagues from the office) eat here 2-3 times a week. The place offers nothing in terms of atmosphere but service is fast and there is enough space between the tables. Get anything...More

Food was solid, nothing to write home about, nothing terrible. We ate towards the end of the lunch rush. Service was strangely surly. I'd eat here again, but I wouldn't seek it out. Nothing special.

Our group of 12, 10 Americans and 2 Senegalese dined at Le Djembe on Saturday, July 6th, 2013 and had a delicious and reasonably priced lunch. One of our Senegalese friends frequents this restaurant and knew it would not disappoint us. We arrived for a...More

This is my favourite place for lunch. Usually tables are full unless you go early. They serve the best Senegalese food in Dakar. Thiebou Djenne Royale is excellent and Chicken Curry is also great. The portions are quite good. The prices are very reasonable. Suggest...More

Chic place to enjoy the Senegalese thiebou djenne in a a well presented plate. Highly recommended the royal Thiebou dieun (5000 F CFA). It also offers other dishes like chicken with rice and curry. African restaurant frequented by some African people with a medium-high purchasing...More
