Description: Livening up Kotu, this is a great outdoor spot to enjoy genuine Gambian food. The menu includes dishes from the Woloff, Mandinka, Fula, Serreh and Aku tribes. Our special Sunday buffet includes interesting dishes not normally found in restaurants. The Jola dance troup entertainment is really good fun.

We did not like it here. The food we chose were not good and eating at the side walk wich normally is charming during holliday, was nothing but bad: to much noise from salesmen, to many elderly Europeen women with young local men, to many street dogs amoung the tables.

The buffet evening provided good food, street setting good for watching the world go by. Unfortunately let down by the bills for several tables not reflecting the food eaten.

Reasonable but not great restaurant with a limited choice of local dishes.

Most dishes seemed to cost D250 = £5 + another 50D for a drink. We ate there twice and tried four dishes between us. The portion size was just enough but the food left you wanting something more.

Staff were friendly though.

If I go back I might give them one more try but my expectations would not be too high!

Tried here on our first night and loved the fact that it was authentic Gambian food. However, the quality of the food was quite poor. In case it had been a bad night we did try them again later in the week but were disappointed to find the same poor quality food. We had the same dishes as we ate here (domada and yassa) in other restaurants and it was much better. The staff were always friendly enough but on the first visit when we asked for dessert we were asked to wait, a short while later we were told she would be with us soon, however, 30 minutes later when we asked again we were told they had closed. Although we accept the Gambian way, and believe me we were in no hurry, we were there for two hours for just a main course and enjoyed our drinks, we were disappointed. At other times for drinks service was good.
