I love the vegetables over brown rice. The place always looks clean. I have been eating here for years and always had good service. I wish they were open more hours.

I just love going to Kente's!!! Everyone there is friendly, they know majority of their customers name. It is like entering Cheer's when you come in the door!!! It is very personable, would recommend them to anyone who comes to the Hampton Roads area!!!

Kente's is a mother/daughter restaurant...that is, mom is the amazing cook and her daughter is the single member of the wait staff. It's a small place with maybe 8 tables but the food, referred to as African health food is absolutely delicious! From shrimp over curry rice to fresh grilled salmon...from Konga balls to the tastiest veggies you'll have, Kente's... More
