Amazing Flavours

Me and my boyfriend were wanting something a bit different after dining out fancy for four days straight. I found this restaurant on urban spoon and I wasn't disappointed. Delicious hearty flavoursome meals. Good Food. Good vibe. Good value. Highly recommended!

This restaurant is so great. Over the years we've been many times and we hadn't been for nearly 2 years. Why had we waited so long?! The variety of food is fantastic and so yummy. If you're with 4 or more people get a banquet so you can have some of everything. We even took two kids and they were... More

Having never experienced African food before I was hesitant, yet pleasantly surprised. Both the meat and the vegetarian sharing dishes were delicious and filling, and such a fun way to eat with friends. The dipping bread(?) was WOW. Staff were fabulous and so friendly, very attentive and offered to chill our wine for us. BYO as well which was handy!

Service was a little slow, but it was not a reflection on the food. A very plain restaurant with no frills, but the food was superb. Would definitely go again.

We wandered past on a Tuesday night and popped in, apparently it is so packed you can't get in on the weekends so we were pleased that there was plenty of space. I think the meals are supposed to be shared but as I was vegetarian and my friend was not we had our own meals. They are huge, delicious... More

The wait staff provided good service with a smile. We ate heaps but still had some left when we'd finished so one of my companions took it home to enjoy for breakfast.

Food is tasty, a bit rough in flavors. Service is ok, with a nice atmosphere. An affordable choice in the middle of brunswick.

Wandering along Brunswick St.with my dining partner we thought we would try this upstairs eatery as it sounded exotic. A beautiful tastefully decorated large and airy room, a tasty menu and friendly service. Beaut African beer and cider list and tasty meal ensued. A discount card to return was a nice surprise at the end.
