I lived in West Africa for a decade and have worked there for over 30 years and the food at Fannie's West African Cuisine was better than any homemade or great restaurant in West Africa I ever ate at. If you've never eaten West African...food you are missing a wonderful experience. The Cassava Leaf and the Jollof Rice were out of this world as were the Plantains. Do yourself a huge favor and go to Fannie's. You will not only never regret it, you will start a whole new experience you can share with other friends.More

What a hidden gem in kansas city. We got spoiled today with some delicious African food. Our favorites were the Jollof rice and the whole fried Mackeral. Everything was made fresh to order, so we didn't mind relaxing for our food to come out. If...you are in a hurry I would suggest calling in and taking out. Can't wait to visit again, my husband said this is his new favorite restaurant!!More

Theee of us tried this place. I am not a foodie. The other two are. Great food in a neat atmosphere in an area you might not expect it. Good flavors. Good food. Great hospitality. It’s all home cooked. Go. Enjoy.

Newly opened West African restaurant with food and flavors I've not seen anywhere near KC. Three of us went for lunch; restaurant was nearly empty, but several takeouts while we were there. In conversation with server we learned that the food is prepared by his...mother and grandmother with traditional Nigerian recipes. We shared the peanut soup, the jollof rice, and kebabs. Peanut "soup" was awesome--more like chicken in a peanut sauce served with rice. Flavor was totally complex and wonderful. Same for jollof rice. Excellent sauces and what appeared to be chutney accompanying it. White tablecloths suggests they are aiming for the dinner crowd, which they most richly deserve. Amazing place that we'll be going back to and trying the more expanded dinner menu.More
