“Pan-African food and music experience”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

The menu consists of some 15 dishes (small, but also bigger portions) from all over the African continent. Every dish comes with some explanation and all very really appetizing ! Very nice experience and in between you are treated with great traditional singing and dancing. Wonderfull evening

“A little kitchy but nice”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

It was a bit touristy in that they wear costumes and dance, but it is very fun when they got my wife and I to join the dancing. The food was pretty good though not excellent. Prices a bit on the higher side.

“Great African food and entertainment”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Most enjoyable African themed food and entertainment. The restaurant moved venues since my first visit and is much larger, but still intimate as there are three or four tiered floors with a small number of chairs and tables, but where the singers, dancers and djembe drum players can move up and down with ease. The set menu with food from all parts of Africa is surprisingly filling, set out meze style it is best to pace yourself at the beginning for the venison pot, fried fish, veg dishes and the dessert, Good value for money and definitely a restaurant I would take visitors to.

“Good fun”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Noisy, large and crowded, but the food is good and interesting from all parts of Africa. It's good venue for large groups because there is a "set menu" of many small courses served family style on platters. Entertainment is spectacular, bring your camera.
