“Best Chicken Ever!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

The place is very nice and very clean.
you can either eat in the patio outside or under the Apatam (with ceiling fans)
The chicken ( their specialty) is excellent ( be careful with the spicy sauce on the side it is really really spicy!!) but the service is very slow

it is, for me, one of the best places in Kinshassa

“Mamam Colonel 1”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Food (chicken or fish) prepared very good but service was so-so. Venue offers an outdoor section, aircon dining room and upstairs VIP. Parking was a hassle.

“Best chicken in Kin”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Delicious! But be prepared to wait a long time. Go with friends and enjoy a bottle of beer and it's worth it. Bandal location is not as nice as Ma Campagne but both are equally good.
