My wife and were famished after an unusually long day across the border and were looking for a a place to have a meal. We happened to stumble over this quaint restaurant on 8th Street in Burnaby that we had heard about recently.

The restaurant itself is very well decorated. There are plenty of tables to accomodate individuals to large groups. The good thing is the kitchen is closed off; therefore, your clothes don't smell as much when you walk out.

Why does anyone go to a restaurant? To eat... And we were not disappointed.

The menu choices are not that extensive; however, a good variety of Indo-African dishes that most East Africans would be familiar with and want to eat. There are daily specials listed on a chalk board entitled "What's cooking?"

We chose to try the hot chicken wings as a starter, which were "heated" just right so we didn't need to douse them further with anymore hot sauce.

Our main course was the Kimma Curry with Rotis rather then rice. Again, spiced right with a nice consistency. Very tasty!

They have a good selection of desserts too that we will have to try on our next visit.

Naz and his server Anouska provided good service.

We look forward to being back. Anyone reading this review should try it too. You won't be disappointed.

We went to Cayenne Bistro and Grill on our way to a concert.
We were warmly greeted and asked for suggestions from the server. She recommended ZANZIBAR KUKU PAKA & CHICKEN SERENA.
We tried both and found the flavor very good.( Could have been a bit hotter spice wise, we will request this next time.) Interesting spices made for a great meal.
The owner came and talked for a bit and was very warm and thoughtful.
We will be going back again...... soon!

Must haves: nylon bhajia and chicken samosas with mouth watering coconut chutney and wash it down with the thick yet smooth faluda drizzled with rose syrup and a generous sprinkle of green sev YUM!!!

Mogo (cassava) was tasty and soft and Kebabs were outstanding. Even samosas were fresh and the masala fish was tasty. They get quite busy. Overall so good that we will be back.
