We had a staff lunch last week. The food was delicious and plentiful--whole grilled fish, good servings of soup, etc. The food took nearly an hour to prepare so if you're a large group it would be good to order ahead. I was also a bit surprised by the prices. Sides (rice, posho, etc) are ordered and charged separately. I... More

This is one of our regular go to restaurants. The relaxing garden is perfect for spending an afternoon. There is a wide selection of African food available that is always cooked to order.

Nice setting, cool environment, delicious food, a lot of varieties, especially African food. I love the African spiced tea, the jollof rice, chicken kebab. A nice place worth visiting.

place serves great food. It is known for its speciality in west African delicacies especially Ghana food. Good portions of food are given, hence the price is a little high but worth it. The ambience is cool, there is a massage parlour for those who want one, a saloon too and a clothing shop. The staff not sooo friendly, seemed... More
