“A hidden gem waiting to be discovered”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

We had dinner on saturday evening with five friends and were warmly welcomed by the charming multilingual Congolese waitress. The menu is original, with African inspired dishes that remain accessible for a western palate. All five were very enthousiastic about the flavour combinations. Alltogether a great discovery and a colourful savory newcomer in the Ghent restaurant scene. Situated in cosy Oudburg, close to the more upscale and touristy Patershol-restaurant scene, you will find a better and more honest food experience. Enjoy!

“Delicious African/Creole served with a smile!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

Having lived in Ghent for several years, I'm always on the lookout for something different, and this relatively new additon to the Ghent restaurnat scene did not disappoint.

The chef is from the island of Reuninon and our very welcoming and entertaining waitress was from the Congo, The food on offer reflected the ethnic mix, and both my fish and my friends chicken dish were full of delicate fresh spices and were accompanied by hotter optional side sauces.

Without doubt a place I look forward to returning to!
