Reasonably priced pseudo-Chinese food

The food is reasonably priced unlike many restaurants in Bamako but wasn't amazing. It was fine but if you get take-away, be sure to check how they pack the food so that it doesn't spill everywhere as mine did!

Let's put it this way. It is not beautiful and it is a bit dark... But it is spacious, clean, has good service, very decent food and it is by Bamako standards very very affordable. For us that live here it has become a spot we visit often, even with the kids.

The prices are very reasonable. Food is average. Ambience is OK. Nothing special to comment.

Maria the owner is very conscious and ensures a good level of service. the menu is vaste and varied. Each plate serves one person, just. The prices are fine and I recommend ordering two plates per person. The ingredinents are fresh, the flavour is there but some dishes are on the bland side: no chili sauce to spice it up... More
