“So friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

I have been to Ghana and I absolutely LOVED Jollof cafe! It was like being back there. The people are unbelievably friendly, the food is gorgeous, and the prices are so good! Highly recommend - I will definitely be going back. You won't be able to stop smiling when you leave.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

Eating here really is an experience - the food was very good. There were 4 of us and we all ate different things, everything was freshly cooked, authentic and delicious. The owners were 2 of the friendliest people we've ever met, they made us feel totally welcome and at home, advised us on food choices and we were even shown how to play the African game Mancala. We really enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to going back soon. If you're wondering whether to try Jollof, I'd say don't hesitate. Thank you for making us so welcome and for your wonderful food!

“Delicious food in a very friendly welcoming setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

My daughter and I had a lovely lunch here . We were made to feel extremely welcome and immediately felt comfortable even though we had never visited before . Advise on choices were helpful and welcomed as we were unfamiliar with the choices . The food was delicious and filling and delivered at a relaxed pace together with a sincere smile .We will both return and will take friends and family too .There is something for everyone on the menu.
