Too bad this cafe moved to someplace. I don't know where. It was great with an interesting atmosphere.

I love this place. Slightly pricy but worth it. Goat stew was yummy and marched well with African tea. Great service and an all around good time.

Great spot if you are looking for something different than the same old sandwiches and pizza. Give it a try and it will be a regular stop for you soon.

This is a rare opportunity to eat something unusual (and so unexpected in this part of the country). We should have gotten goat stew with plantains, (known as Matoke), but got chicken stew matoke instead because we to nervous being unfamiliar with goat (later others told us the goat is good). But it was tasty and large portions -- plantains,... More

It's really neat that Morgantown has somewhere to eat ethnic food other than typical Asian and Indian foods...the owner is always around to explain the menu and give recommendations. Have never had a bad food experience here. Very casual...order at counter and take a seat to be served.

I haven't been to Kenya, but I've been eating African expat food all over the world, and this was very similar to some of the Ghanan and Somali meals I've had. We shared a goat Ugali, chapati, and kilimanjaro for dessert. Everything was good, the owner and waitress checked on us several times. I wish I could have tried more,... More

Great for vegetarian options and really friendly staff. Discovered too late in my visit to repeat visit, but will definitely stop in on my next trip to town.

I have to say that I really looked forward to my visit at this restaurant but when I got there, my experience was different to what I had imagined. I tried out a few dishes, none of which seemed authentic or tasted anything like they're meant to. The decor was average and is a relaxed atmosphere but the menu could... More

I tried the buryanis, I dont know what that was but it was definitely not buryani. I did not feel that the food is Kenyan, just a gathered menu that the restaurant claims to be Kenyan. The Red, Masala, and Ginger teas are Indian specialties not Kenyan. Nice seating areas though, but wouldnt recommend this place for food.
