“good food and good service”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

the place was clean and decorated in an African motive. there were lots of dishes to choose from the menu. we tried two fish dishes. they were both delicious. service was fast and friendly. the food came very quickly. the main course was more than enough food, having an appetizer would have been too much to eat.

“Great Food”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

The restaurant is really 5 stars and serves great food in the mall of the emirates. In particular I recommend the steak. The staff, all from Africa, are particularly good and I would I take their advice on your selection of steak if this is your choice. Well worth a visit if your in the mall or just looking for a nice place to eat.

“From all over Africa”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Not only is it really good, it's different.... different from the regular types of restaurants around.
We went there for lunch and were very warmly greeted "Welcome to Africa."
All the waiters wear a name tag on which below their name it tells you the African tribe of their origin.
The menu has some very interesting dishes. We tried the Multi Tribal Sausage platter, 4 sausages, Camel, Beef, Lamb and Chicken (the Camel was the best then the Lamb). Then we had a Central African Pie (Beef rib meat and chicken giblets on puff pastry), and I had the braised ox tail.
We ended the meal with some Chocolate Malva pudding. A very nice meal.
There were other dishes I want to try in future, Ugandan fish croquets (with Mackerel and potato), Steamed east coast clams, Beef short ribs and the Kalahari roast lamb (with bushman spices).
They also have three set menus.

“Great!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Delicious food, try the steak with the blue cheese, yum! The bread they serve at the beginning is unmissable.
Friendly staff and great atmosphere.
I go back again and again and have recommended this place to everyone. Shame it's in a mall, therefore they dont serve alcohol, wouldn't mind a nice glass of red with my steak.
All in all an amazing place.

“Great food, amazing interior.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Food is delicious, from the lovely fresh bread until the beautifully cooked steak (not enough space to try the desserts) and the decorations and interiors are amazing. Staff could be a bit more friendly,I think our waiter didn't smile once, but the assistant manager made up for it with a lovely chat and being super friendly. Definitely commendable!
