I was at this restaurant as part of an inclusion on a group tour. I feel this is a place set up completely for tourists and that locals are unlikely to dine here. Not something I usually go for. The dishes are brought out 4 or 5 at a time and you can have as much or as little as... More

A great dining experience, our group of 22, was quickly seated. The evening started with lessons on playing the djembe (drum). We were treated to traditional African dancing during our dinner. Our meal consisted of a variety of traditional African dishes.

The food was traditional African farr and was varied and tasty. Our waitress gave us info on where each dish was from. They paint the ladies faces. The music and dance happened throughout the night and seemed authentic. Costumes were nice.

From the eclectic authentic African menu to the song and dance that is performed through the duration of your meal, you are transported to another world! There's sufficient options even for vegetarians. But especially for those who love to discover the culture of a place through its cuisine and love to experiment with food and flavours, this is the place... More

This is as much an African experience as dinner. With various courses from all over Africa, it's a tasting experience. All of the food was good. The floor show was fantastic! Go to the early seating to experience the drumming session. Highly recommend!!
