We have tried on numerous occasions to eat at this Restaurant but it has always been closed.....such a pity ...for those who have managed to find it open the rating is good.

We've been here a couple of times now and it just gets better and better. The owner (Charlie) will look after you in the restaurant, whilst his wife will cook you some of the best food you've ever tasted. It is always best to order in advance here, particularly if you're after a menu choice of one of the great... More

We went with a large group of friends for a birthday. We found the hosts very accommodating and flexible. We had a good selection of everything that was to offer and it was all very good. Really enjoyed trying some new foods that I probably wouldn't have ordered. I wasn't blown away by the curries. They were good don't get... More

We had a meat platter which was really good. Charlie treated us so well we felt like one of the family. The cooking was superb, barbequed meat was a delight. Well worth the visit and highly recommended.

Never had African food before. Recommended to us by a local and we were not disappointed. Charlie the owner was the perfect host. The food was goat chicken beef and lamb cooked to perfection with rice and veg. A bit spicy but delicious. Take your own booze or but from the pub next door. A lovely evening, do go.

So I was looking for a place to eat to celebrate my birthday and thought I'd try tripadvisor. I saw this on the top of the list after having walked past it a few times in the past not expecting anything much. We pre ordered the African banquet because we weren't sure what to have, holy crap, the starters that... More

Booked after reading Trip Advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. Amazing value for money. Authentic cooking at its best. Wonderful flavours. We will return in the not to distant future. Well worth a visit.

Lovely host, but we went on a weekday evening so the restaurant was very quiet! The food was good quality, plentiful and the price was very good! Amazing flavours and lovely dessert too! Would go again :)

My wife and I had looked forward to C and W's for so long but the experience was sadly spoiled by being placed in a smallish room with a party of 18 others who had been seated in a square formation. We had been squeezed into a small corner table! Mine host Charlie was however a perfect host. We opted... More

I don't think i can add any more praise and acknowledgement to the lovely food and service we encountered at Charlie & Wanja's version of Africa in a platter - it was sumptuous. The only thing i can add is the few photos we took of our food, although the sight and smell soon took over and the camera was... More
