Went to #1 rated restaurant. They were closed for Labor Day. Went to this one, ranked #3 at the time. Great food served timely and hot. Great service. A few items on menu take a little while to prepare, and these items are clearly indicated. Great lunch!

“My favorite in Fayetteville so far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Friends gave us a gift certificate to go to this restaurant when they heard we were moving to Fayetteville. My husband and I took along 3 other friends & we all enjoyed the experience. As a vegan, I found food I enjoyed and our friends all enjoyed their meals with fish & meat. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We will be back soon!

“Vegan options served with beautiful smiles.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

We are vegan and this place was very familiar to our needs, we however were not familiar with West African food. The owner(s) were so friendly and took time to explain the menu to us and made some wonderful suggestions. When the food came out it was unbelievable! Fantastic! I wish this was close to my home because I would certainly be a regular.
