I am from Kenya and I miss my home food, I cant believe how amazing it is to go here and feel exactly at home. From the food to the service, everything is always fresh and on point, I travel all the way from Abbotsford just to get a taste of home. Totally worth it!

Food was yummy and the service was excellent. We were in a hurry because we had a ferry to catch but they accomodated us despite being super busy. Thank you.

Safari Snack House is a tiny little shop located in a mini mall on Canada Way. I came here around noon for lunch on a weekday and found that it was quite busy... especially with people coming for take-out orders. The interior of this Indo-African fusion snack shop isn't much to look at. It does indeed look like a snack... More

They do a daily menu that changes and provides a great selection of dishes to try. Not been disappointed yet. The take out portions are generous. The Chicken samosas are my favorite. Food is always consistently great and the service is friendly and efficient. Joann and Saif are like family now.

My family and I just arrived in Burnaby for the first time and we were hungry, so we went to this beautiful gem of a place. We were greeted very warmly and this place felt like home. we tried the samosas, which were excellent, and the Mogo, which tasted a bit like fries - very tasty! For dessert, we were... More

We are regular guests and just noticed that this excellent spot is on Trip Advisor. We consistently order the Tandoori Chicken and Mixed Grill and have never been disappointed. Simply the best you can get!

We are hooked to this place and that is the truth. My face lights up every time we are in the area and we just gravitate to it. Saif and Joanna provide great service. The food never disappoints. The chicken samosas, the Kebabs and their daily specials are amazing.

I love this place. What is refreshing is that the service and the quality of the food is always consistent and great. We visit this place at least once a week. The food and endless cups of tea make this place a winner for us.

This is a very modest café which caters, first ands foremost, to the Ismaili community. That said, the food is good and prepared to order. They sell chicken as well as beef samosas. Staff is cheery and care about both your experience and the food. Best for call in your order and take-away. They also do nice plates of Indian... More

Even though it is an Indian restaurant but the spices and flavours are no where close to anything Indian. The spices used are from East Africa. It's a MUST try at least once for your mouth palates. Next time I am trying their grill items...
