My partner and I enjoyed a very tasty meal here last night. We arrived at about 8pm on a Friday night and secured the last table.

This place is quite small and is definitely for casual dining, although they seemed to have a reasonably decent drinks menu.

The staff are friendly, but the service is very slow. I don't know if this is typical or we just went on a bad night. Although staff frequently come and go from the kitchen, food is rare to come out. It seemed like food came out of the kitchen about once every 20 minutes.

Nevertheless, when our meal did come out, it was absolutely delicious. On the recommendation of the staff, we ordered a mixed plate to share. The entree and main came out at the same time and were both on this mixed plate. We ordered spicy chicken wings, lamb curry, spicy chicken and of course goat curry. The flavours were amazing and there was a definite tangy flavour to these dishes.

While the plate was a reasonable size, we were still hungry afterwards. I'm not sure if this place serves dessert but we weren't willing to risk the rate.

If you are not in a hurry, I would definitely give this place a go.

Friends suggested we try this place as they rated it highly. We opted to try it out on a Saturday night recently. the place was rather quiet and there was only one other guest in the restaurant when we arrived. The decor is certainly a mix of styles, much like you might get in an eatery in many towns in Africa. The service was excellent and the choice of food was varied. Our drinks were served promptly, although the coca-cola I ordered was not cold. We ordered a beef dish and a goat dish. Both meals were fine but nothing special or outstanding.
