My wife and I went along to Wanja's new venture at the park house with 10 friends and had a brilliant time. Great food and service! Highly recommended!

Any concern about whether the new location in Gloucester Park would change this special restaurant was dispelled last night. Wanja produced a series of delicious and spicy dishes for our group of friends with her usual warmth and friendliness. This is the start of a new venture for this unique place which deserves to do well. Highly recommended.

We hadn't booked, hadn't pre-ordered and naively walked in hoping to get a table for two! Our mistake!! The chef said that, providing we weren't fussy and were happy to eat what he could offer us, he could accommodate us - an exciting concept!

This was our 3rd visit and still amazing! The banquet is highly recommended, plate after plate of delicious food......only really for big meat eaters though! The service was friendly as ever and very good value.

We went there last night and it was second to none. From the friendly staff to the mouthwatering food, this place does not let itself down. The banquet that we ordered was wonderful. We will definitely go back back.

I love this place. It is by far my most favourite place to visit. The food is delicious (easily the best food in Gloucester) but even better than that the hospitality us unrivalled anywhere. Its like going to your closest friend's house for your dinner.

This please is exceptionally jolly and gives you a journey through African cuisine. The BBQ meat is cooked to perfection. The staff are kind and attentive. Well worth a trip if you're in the area.
