Delicious and affordable African food. The ambience is small and casual and makes you feel like you are in another country. The egussi stew is delicious! I will visit again.

We went with few expectations as I had not had West African food before, but the experience was not one I would repeat. First, the service was pretty much non-existent, as we had to wait for over 20 minutes to be noticed by the staff...More
