We just found this restaurant by accident but it was a real pleasant accident :-)

The interior is nothing fancy but the food was delicious. My girlfriend and I both ate the scampis with cocomilk and it was succulant and rather cheap, only €16,5 the dish!

We will definitely return !!

We were looking for something different and we decide to try this African restaurant. Looking from outside it was not really appealing but the reviews we have read were good. And they were right. They have quite a good selection of different dishes plus daily suggestion. The food was good, having non-traditional dishes and taste. They use typical ingredients from African cousine but with a modern twist. We liked it.

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!

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!
