The food was nice but not anything special and I felt it was overpriced for what it was. The atmosphere was cold and didn't feel cosy. I couldn't fault the service, I had read good reviews and was expecting something more from the restaurant so sadly I was disappointed. Some of the food on the menu wasn't available.

This place was a surprise for us. It had some really interesting flavor combinations. There were many things on the menu we wanted to try. The appetizers were amazing, especially the chickpea doubles and the jerk chicken. All of the rest of the mains were good. No complaints there. And the beer was good African beer. I will agree about... More

Visited this very African restaurant with African friends who loved it ! The beer was Kenyan the food was from all parts of Africa and the staff were attentive . A lovely log fire and melodies of the jungle were the atmosphere of the restaurant .

Second time ordering online from Embe. First time, the jambalaya was superb. Second time, my order was refused because supposedly they were too busy. No apologies, no explanation was received from Embe. I was informed by a third party not to expect my order and that I would have to wait a few weeks to get my payment returned to... More

Thanks again Embe and staff for our wonderful meal. We look forward to going again real soon. Food is always delicious and I find it hard, which main to choose now, as I have a couple of favourites.

Been here several times now and it keeps getting better. The layout, decor and atmosphere are really charming. The owner made a point of popping out of the kitchen and was a very pleasant guy.
