Good restaurant mostly for spiced local dishes, also salads are safe and very nice here. Only thing we tasted that was with no flavor at all was the pasta carbonara. Very helpful and friendly staff, give them a tip if u can!

Just spent the most amazing two weeks in Gambia with 11 friends. Kunta Kinteh staff were so helpful and polite. The food was great. Fantastic BBQ and entertainment on a Sunday. Highly recommend this place.
