The food was excellent particularily the dishes from Africa. The selection of wine is superb and the service was promt and competent. This restautant is now in the top 3 of... More

The food is pretty good, mostly because there is a lack of interesting cuisine in Basel. We had the appetizer platter and I had the Tanjine. The Tanjine was really good but was not a tradiional tanjine. My wife thought her salad was just OK. The service however was really slow and I do not know why. We were one... More

Varied menu which included exotic items such as a crocodile burger, as well as a selection of intriguing cross-cultural offerings, for example an African strudel. The culinary ideas were interesting and the food did not disappoint. The service however fails to deliver on the global inclusivity this place is trying so hard to project. The owner paid a lot of...

The food is very basic, definitely not worth the price. Maybe I am a bit harsh here with the food, being Chinese myself I would say the food is not authentic Asian food at all, although I know it is branded as a "fusion" restaurant....

Maybe 3 stars is harsh, but the general ambiance and slow service have let it down. The menu is quite brave for Basel, and whilst the menu is both varied & interesting, the meals were a little bland for my tastes. Maybe 3.5 stars is a better reflection.

We were there about half a year ago and we enjoyed everything; the food and drinks were great, the service was really good, the owners were there attending the clients and we found the restaurant outstanding. Last week we finally managed to go again and unfortunately this time we were disappointed. The service was really slow, we ordered first a... More

We loved this place. Tasty food and fantastic service. We asked for the surprise menu where you get to taste a little bit of everything and loved it. They even ask you if there is anything on the menu that you really, really would like to have on the menu and they make it happen. The menu consists on very... More

Maybe the restaurant changed hands? Service slow, drinks mostly sugar water and made incorrectly (very unusual/Bad taste), food was smothered in syrupy too sweet sauces, service slow, inattentive (but polite!). Overall very disappointed in what used to be reliably good food and drinks. For the price we definitely won't risk it again.
