My wife and I have been to this restaurant TWICE within a month. My wife NEVER goes to a restaurant twice in a month. We ordered the same thing both times because it's that good! And it's CHEAP! If you like chicken - and you...More

A wonderful potpourri of native African flavored chicken with a variety of spices and harmony of flavors. The atmosphere is colorful, festive, and informal. It is a step-to-the-ordering counter, following seating, pay and then sit back and soak in the piped-in tropical music. Just in...More

The chicken is wonderful and the sauces add nice flavor. Sides are interesting and good. Staff very pleasant. Only problem is take out is often incomplete missing one ordered side or another. I will ,however, keep giving them a chance to do better!

It is a fast food like places. But it has a great BBQ chicken tender and juicy marinated in their signature sauce that uniquely blends with Peri-Peri and other spicy herbs. You can choose many varieties of side dishes to go with it. Such as...More
