We had one beef dish and a curry dish for lunch. Their volume was way more than for two people; it probably fed three people comfortably.

They are said to be typical foods from East Africa (the owners are from Kenya) with a clear hint of influence from the Indian sub-continent.

We personally prefer common Indian foods to the East African version.

The service was quite good, but the food wasn't quite our kind.

We've actually travelled to Africa and can say this food is the real deal. The service was excellent (helped our party choose a variety of dishes to please everyone), the food very yummy, and the portions are large. Definitely worth seeking out this restaurant!

We enjoyed trying something a bit out of the ordinary. I quite liked my chicken dish. We appreciated the owner checking with us to see how we were enjoying our food. Servers were very nice.

This is a tucked away on Edmonds and can be easily missed. Their portions are large. The African style Indian curries are rich and very tasty. Meats are very tender!
