Took some suppliers to experience Africa and I could not have made a better choice. The food was excellent and the waiters top class.

I always get the ostrich, as it never fails to please. The harissa paste is deadly, but the bread selection is good.

Touristy, but fun with "traditional" hand-washing, face paint adornment, and live music. Food was so-so, and they were out of quite a few dishes, but it was very accommodating for a large group and had a lively atmosphere, which was fun!

This place is a dinner experience rather than just a meal. The staff are very helpful and the venue is amazing. During the winter time you can chill outside in front of fire baskets and under a blanket while enjoying a drink or two with friends.
