Great food, mind the culture shock!

The Horn of Africa doesn't look very inviting, from the inside or outside, but after a meal here I really don't care about the appearances. It wouldn't win any contest for North American style service either, but really they don't bother you much and are very obliging once you ask for something... read more

The restaurant is a lot smaller on the inside than it looks, but don't let that deter you! They have a very limited menu, only nine dishes total, and when we were there they were out of ingredients for four of them. What they do make however, they make well! The meal starts with a dish of soup. A simple... More

I walked into this restaurant and immediately had second thoughts (specifically, that I should have played it safe and went to The Keg). It looked like an apartment living room...the staff were sitting at one of the few tables and that was it. Nobody was there, no visible activity in the kitchen...I could have sworn they were closed. The woman... More

The food was good. The african flavours were unique. The chicken dish we had was great, the beef very tough, dissapointing, they cheaped out on the meat and wrecked a potentially fave dish. Also, when we first walked in there was a woman playing with her bare feet. This grossed my hubby out, I joked..."as long as she isn't our... More

I visited this quite little restaurant in December, the food was freshly prepared. The service was great, as a new small business the two owners have built a loyal client-el. And I understand why. Try this unique menu of Horn of Africa, the food is great, the hours are great and you will be pleasantly surprised. New Loyal Customer

We have eaten in and ordered out. The samosas are delicious. The servers are willing to modify any item on the menu. The food is well cooked and seasoned to perfection. New specials with each visit. Very economical. Like no where else in GP.
