Looking for a new place to have lunch I luckily found this fabulous place. The Yassa chicken was so succulent...no knife needed...with an astounding piquant sauce & mixed vegetables. It's served with a little mound of extra hot seasoning. I finally mushed down the rice...More

My spouse found this so we tried it. Great food at very good prices. Even though it was busy the staff were very polite and explained the choices to us. Good portions, prices and very tasty fare.

We stopped for dinner and will never forget Bantaba. The owners Khady and Ablaj prepared and served us a magic menu in a very friendly atmosphere.

Never had this type of food but the reviews brought us in for a new experience. We were not disappointed and will return to try more. Don't let the look of the side exterior signage steer you away as the place is nice. I dressed...More
