Love the food here and visit every time I visit Gambia. A little pricey, but the quality of the food is consistent and very tasty.

The ambience was splendid. There was a valet at the entrance who made everyone feel welcomed. Had Chicken Dodoma and I absolutely loved it.

Before leaving the country I wanted to have a final African taste and this place did not disappoint. I ordered chicken mafe with african rice...and although it was not as tasty as the ones I ate in the countryside, it was very tasty! A cold beer and good service made the dinner very nice.
