This is a place that I've been meaning to try for several years. Weekend in London regularly and like to have lunch before catching the train home on a Sunday afternoon. I love Chutneys which is just up the road and have gone there at the expense of trying some of the other eateries on the fabulous Drummond Street. Finally came here for lunch, and can only say that I should have come earlier! Customer service was fabulous. Antonio is passionate about the food that he serves and it comes across. We had ginger beer which was lovely, not carbonated, and fried yam balls with a lovely avocado and coriander dip, followed by goat curry and spicy rice. Had to finish it off with a mango flan. Very good indeed. The food is pre cooked and re-heated - kitchen is not equipped for anything else. But this does not detract from the quality or the flavour. Will definitely be returning - and may even have to try some of the other restaurants on this road too!

I will just add to the chorus of other reviews praising the food, atmosphere and service if this tiny gem of a restaurant. We were visiting from aboard and were looking forward to eating here after reading about it online and it did not disappoint. We phoned a few days ahead for a reservation as there are only five tables. If you love to try off the beaten path places, you'll love African Kitchen Gallery.

I was here with a friend last night, and I must say I loved the service, the food, the atmosphere and everything else.

My friend and I were visiting London on business and staying in a nearby Hotel, so we looked up eating places in the vicinity on Trip Advisor and came across this gem - and everything all the other reviews say about this is true.

We had a fish and the chickpeas, and the rice, with a very filling mango juice and some of the african beer - which was very refreshing.

The flavors are very authentic, and the portions are very sizeable, if you were doing a 3 course dinner with 3 people - 2 mains would be enough. We struggled to finish our mains, and that was the only reason we didn't try any of the desserts.

Great for couples or friends, if you want to go to a different place with great food.

Had a day in London and decided to get something to eat close to the station first thing. Found this using the Tripadvisor App for my iPad and thought I would give it a go. I was not disappointed. The food was very different and yes the home made ginger beer is well worth a try. I will definitely make the effort, effort being a poor word when it is less than a few minutes from the station, take my girlfriend here when we next visit London.

very small place with a great atmosphere and tasty spicy food; Anotionio is very nice and friendly and he can transmit his passion for the food and the quality of ingredients. I'llcertainly want to go back again, to have one more "espresso".
