My husband and I went to this restaurant thinking it served Nigerian food. Even tho it catered to the East African delicacies, it was amazing!! From presentation to taste, everything about our entrees was wonderful!

I ordered the chicken with salad. It was really good. Very flavorful. I spent many years as a missionary in different parts of Africa and this food came pretty to close. It's worth the try for those who are willing to try new food.
