The lady serving was really friendly and helpful- took the time to explain the menu and obviously passionate about the food. Everything was delicious. I tried an African cocktail on her advice and it was amazing. Very reasonably priced too.

This is a very friendly bijou African restaurant near canal st Martin. The food was excellent especially the goat casserole. The main courses came with a very interesting selection of African vegetables all very well described by the French owner who spoke very good English. Would definitely go back and try out some more of the interesting menu items.
