Food was good, tried 2 Gambian dishes, 1 better than the other. Daughter had chips. Prices - about same as UK We both got a tummy bug day after, not sure if related or just because of the water (which we tried to avoid). Was the busiest restaurant on the street.

The atmosphere was genuine for a tourist restaurant and the staff was laydback but friendly and serviceminded. The only enoying thing was the endless people talking and offering... More

wonderful food and service, sizzling plates are gorgeous and very filling as you get very good portions, friendly staff, just don't sit on tables next to path as you get pestered by bumsters and singers asking for money, ask to sit further in restaurant.

When staying in The Gambia we went to the Senegambia Strip for the evening. We decided to eat in the African Queen restaurant as it looked appealing from the outside, one of the largest restaurants and it was super busy! We were seated and offered drinks. The food took about an hour to come but when it did, it was... More

I have read somewhere that Gambia is "Africa for beginners". Well, this restaurant serves african cuisine for absolute beginners. Located in the obvious tourist trap that is Senegambia Road, this place represents the idea that a narrow-minded middle-aged british person has of Africa: big wooden statues, exotic dancers, obsequious waiters and an overall colonial feel. The food is anemic to... More
