“Simple honest and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

During summer you can sit outside on the pedestrianstreet. Wooden tables and benches.
Beer .75 liter for €4 wine €2.5. fish tilapia €8 is the most expensive. They have fish and chicken mainly and served with rice. Two sauces are added seperatly Chily sauce and some really spicy other pepersauce, good and hot.
The girls are very nice and friendly. Food is served rapidly.
As Airline crew it was a discovery and totlally different then all the regular restaurants.
And a relaxed atmosphere in that street Rue de Lonquevie/Lang levenstraat.
Toilet cleaness can be beter but still okay.
Total price for 4 drinks, one starter, 4 meals, 2 dessert (We called it Dessert neauvou, because we wanted Warm bananas and icecream) and the tip €60,- Yeah sixty!

“Casual African eatery - relaxed atmosphere and tasty dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This place is in the Matongé area which is full of African shops and restaurants. It has colourful painted décor with African patterns and a street-side terrace with long picnic tables on a pedestrian street (and a terrace heater - which is often necessary in Brussels!). The dishes are what you would expect from an African restaurant, some chicken, some fish dishes, peanut sauce, rice, plantain and the best is that they have some mixed plates ideal for one person to try a bit of everything. They have a vegetarian option of this too. The vegetarian option is some rice, some spinach with a sauce, some veg, some tasty spring-roll-like things (lovely with the sweet chilli dip), some round things that seemed similar to falafel and a good serving of plantain. The food is tasty and varied and the portions are perfect. You get some sweet chilli dipping sauce and a very very very very hot one (you were warned), which you can use as you wish. They also serve big bottles of beer which is great if you're in a big group. We were a group of 9 and we were impressed at the slick service because 2 arrived late but we still all got our food at the same time. We paid about 10€ a head for a main meal and about 5 shared desserts with copious beer which is really excellent value for money. Oh and the warm chocolate tart with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream is really worth saving some space for. All of us came away happy and we'll definitely be going back.

“Good food for good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Three drinks, three main dishes and one portion of fried bananas: 29 EUR. For Brussels this is a very good price. The food was also tasty. Highly recommended if you want to eat in Matonge.

“Tasty African at a very good price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Simply a tasty, fresh, fast, friendly place at a great price. Lunch for two was €17.50. The place only seats about 20 inside, and is coloful and fun in a homemade way.
