Reviewed August 25, 2013

Wow what a surprise! The amazon in the middle of Solihull. We popped in for a quick bite but have now booked as a family to go soon. Caribbean food with live music. Oh yes

“Excellent food...service a bit slow”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We have been to Akamba many times. The buffet nights are great and they don't skimp on portions.

We have been during a lunch time but service can be a little slow, so allow plenty of time.

The staff are wonderful - especially Marie!

It's a great place to go during an afternoon, sit outside with a drink and chill.

The shop is great too - there's some wonderful African artwork.

Akamba has such a lovely atmosphere - if you haven't been - go and see for yourself.

“A Little Piece of Africa in the West Midlands”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I often visit Akamba to site in between the luscious greenery and have a quiet drink (either hot drinks or alcoholic). The african theme is everywhere which makes it feel rather special.

“wonderland”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We fell upon this place by accident whilst out and about, what a revelation. an amazing place. It is so much more than anyone can explain. My wife, young son and I had a drink sat around a giant bongo drum with sounds of africa wandering through the palms looking at a waterfall with a gorilla looking down on us. Elephants and giraffes tower over the various plants. We will be back for the caribbean buffet next time we have a sunny afternoon. Wonderful. (P.s the animals aren't real)
