Had lunch at the Kilimanjaro recently. Ambience was good. Food was sumptuous. We had roast lamb, fish, veggies and rice. Everything was cooked to perfection. Great food for the price. Will be back next time.

Having lived in Senegal with the Peace Corps, the food brings back great memories for me. The tastes were wonderful and the owners super kind. I will go back to this restaurant every time we visit Philly. It's an easy bus ride too!
