“Hit and Miss”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

I've had a few good meals here and have found the portions to be larger than most, although this is reflected in the higher prices. I have also had 2 bad experiences here. One when I asked for a prawn dish to be cooked a bit more as the prawns were not cooked in the middle - this met with an indignant and rude response from the manageress and an argument ensued. The next time, we had a problem with the same lady who was not very pleasant to my driver. If you get it on a good night, you should have a good time but.........

“Average food”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We thought that the food was nice (especially desert!) but it felt like it was too busy and the staff was trying to get your out as soon as possible. They were flying around the tables, not taking their time, actually forgetting our maincourse ... and the wine tasted like it was watered down. Not the relaxed atmospfere you'd expect in the Gambia at all.

“Great African experience”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We always eat at this establishment when in town and have always found the food very good. The sizzlers are a particular favourite and seem very popular. The staff are always welcoming and the owner is attentive and cares about the service levels.
