I had dinner with my daughter and 2 friends on Saturday night. The restaurant was fully booked and we had pre-ordered the African Banquet. The lamb, beef brisket, BBQ chicken, goat curry and delicately flavoured fish dishes were all exceptional in quality and quantity. The accompanying rice and vegetables were equally tasteful. Charlie and his colleague gave us a very... More

Having just moved house and being too pooped to cook, on recommendation we went to C & W's and we were not disappointed. Without a doubt the best goat curry I have eaten and we were made to feel ever so welcome with the proprietor sharing a few stories of his experiences and cooking with us. I have recommended it...

This was an excellent experience, been there a couple of times and it's always a pleasure. My mum has traveled the world and has eaten in many different restaurants but she said this was one of the best curries or stews she's ever had! My mum is an excellent cook as well so that is really saying a lot. Please... More

Wonderful meal with an authentic African flavour. Delicious food - nothing was too much trouble for Charlie. We wish we lived nearer so we could visit again!

I visited this restaurant for my mum's birthday as we wanted to try something new. We had the free range barbecued chicken and the goat and beef curries. All the food was really tasty and great value for money. We spoke to the owner who was super friendly and down-to-earth. Can't wait to go back. We had a great African... More

Had a wonderful meal last night with a group of friends. Food was delicious and the service top notch, considering there were 12 of us and we weren't the only diners. Can highly recommend this restaurant.

I cannot say there is nothing like this in the UK because I have not got that sort of experience. However I must relay my experience to all who may be interested. Being new to the Gloucester area I use Tripadvisor to explore the local restaurants to give me some idea of where to eat. I emailed Charlie at this... More

Thanks to you Charlie and your wife for a really cracking meal today. The restaurant is small (must book) but this means that Charlie has the time to look after his customers. And the food....the slow cooked lamb is absolutely delicious and the rest of the banquet equally good. Highly recommended - just how a great restaurant should be; authentic,... More
