This restaurant is different in every way. Fabulous decor with African art - all can be purchased. Excellent and interesting food enhanced by imaginative use of herbs and spices. A wide selection of fish, lamb, beef and vegetarian dishes, unusual starters and desserts, all of which will be explained to you by the charming and knowledgeable owner, Antonio, who has more than a few stories to tell.

Very well priced and the service charge which is automatically added (pretty normal these days but objected to by a reviewer) actually goes to a children's charity in Africa. Very well priced and highly recommended. Cash only currently. Only four tables so book.

We took a trip to London the weekend beginning 28th June, we spent ages looking for a Caribbean restaurant that didn't cost that much and we stumbled across this little beauty.

We got that quite late when the owner was going to shut however he kept it open for us, we ordered and the food was some of the best Caribbean food we have tasted. The food was cooked then chilled and recooked on demand however this definitely brought the flavour out even more.

The owner was friendly and couldn't help us anymore we will definitely be going back the next time we hit london

We've been in London for about five weeks now, and one of my only regrets is that we didn't visit the African Kitchen Gallery until our trip was nearly over. This tiny restaurant has some of the best food we've had here, and hands-down the best service we've had anywhere. The chef/part-owner, Antonio, is charming and warm, and we spent a wonderful couple of hours chatting with him over moiy moiy, spicy lentils, and goat curry. We won't be forgetting the experience!

Incredible restaurant. Very small and intimate with gorgeous food. The waiter (who we also assumed is the owner) was a delight.

We had been before and were keen to return. Unfortunately that was a mistake. The service was not as good nor was the food. Would need persuading to return
