Authentic african food. Wonderful flavours in these traditional dishes. The food is excellent, the atmosphere relaxing and the staff extremely pleasant. Only downside is that the prices are on the high side for what is being served. May do well when the tourists are around but don't think the locals will pay these prices on a regular basis.

Thanks for taking the time to provide your comments. At Amanzi we make everything from scratch, fresh, every day. There are no tricks, freezing or preserving of our meals, we just concentrate on providing food that is fresh, full of flavour and tastes great. All this takes time (labour) and money in sourcing the freshest raw ingredients. That is what... More

Myself and 2 work colleagues visited Amanzi whilst staying in the area. This was top of our list of restaurants to visit whilst staying in Falmouth and were so disappointed to find that it didn't open on Mondays or Tuesdays and when we turned up on Wednesday, it was closed due to staffing problems. Luckily we got a table on... More

Many thanks for your review. We are a family-run restaurant and need to spend a couple of days together every week to recuperate. Opening 7 days a week requires a much larger staff compliment and is more difficult to maintain high standards. Hence the reason for us closing 2 days a week in the winter months. Kind regards Ian More

We had an excellent meal here, my husband had the kitchen curry and I had a lovely baked dish. Everything was beautifully prepared and the service was lovely. We noticed people looking in the window reading the menu and then moving on. People may think the food will be too spicy as it is influenced by African cooking but it... More

Many thanks for the review. When we changed the menu to purely African food we knew that we would alienate some people that perceived African food as spicy. However, we thought we would make up that shortfall by attracting more adventurous eaters. This has proven to be the case and has, in fact, increased our trade proving to us that... More

Looking for Sunday lunch and dropped on this gem by chance three years ago and now have to return each year. The service is friendly from a family run restaurant with excellent, tasty food. For drink try the homemade ginger or pineapple beer. Another visit next year is a must.
