The service was excellent. The food was good. I shared a fish platter with my hubby, (which was really fantastic), the teens had chicken, and everyone was happy at the end of the meal. There are cheaper restaurants, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

All the raestaurants are at the same street They even export the chicken to make sure of salmonella. Very tasty. I love the gambian sauces! Seafood is tasty and sure to order, like everything else! NAM

After a few years of hit and miss with food and staff, in my experience. The African Queen has come along leaps and bounds. The staff are great with a warm welcome from Chris outside who tries to get people to eat here, he is great and welcoming but if you are heading elsewhere he doesnt hound you. The manager... More

The day after I went back at lunch time, I ordered the same dish and it was completely different from the first time. I guess because the African queen ( the owner was not around) quando il gatto non c’è I... More

Butterfish is rather special here. It is not like the tired and watery frozen stuff that we buy in the US or Europe. It is firm and tastey and so is the African Queen herself, Tina who looks after everyone with an eye that only a mother hen would cast upon her well fed chicks. The menu is wide and... More

Incredible food and brilliant service. We all finished our meals pretty quickly as it just tasted so good and so the woman, who I presume was the manager, came over and offered us all the same meals again for no extra cost!! Bargain!! There was such a wide variety of food so I'm sure even the fussiest of eaters will... More
