“Delicious Food - Friendly Service”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

This exceptional restaurant brings you for a short while to Senegal, with its authentic staff, ambiance and cuisine. The menu offers grilled beef, lamb, chicken, fish or guinea fowl or stewed lamb - all very delicious but not at all fat-free - with a choice of equally delicious side dished.

“Great African Food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

The place is a little chaotic and the service is not exactly what you would call rigorous, but the food is delicious and the atmosphere is friendly and lively. Very much recommended for those who are open-minded and interested in a new experience.
By the way, I don't know why Trip Advisor has the name wrong. The name of the place is Africa Kiné. The staff speaks French.

“Great ambiance / atmosphere. Okay food, not great service.”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

My husband and I walked in late night for dinner. Even though it was late night the place was still two hours from closing. We had a waitress who did not greet us when we walked in even there there was only one table with people at us. No smiles for us. Just made me feel a little bad. The food was good Senegalese. My favorite part about being there though was the people at the other tables. Dressed in gorgeous African outfits, laughing, having a great tinme, talking in English, then another language (Senegalese?) I was trying not to stare because they were so beautiful and having such a good time I wanted to be a part of it too. We ordered the chicken and rice and onions and it was pretty sour, but tasty. The cooks and busboys were very friendly!

Reviewed June 24, 2009

This is sort of a low key African diner type spot. The various fish preparations are quite nice. The fish is generally moist and accompanied by assorted starches and pickled onions and vegetables. The grilled chicken was remarkably tasty and moist. The lunch menu is mainly West African, oriented towards Senegalese cuisine, whereas dinner migrates toward French offerings. But be warned that the menu has items that are only available on certian days or the weekends. No alcohol served, but you can BYOB, and you get a paper coffee cup. Ah one great thing here is the house made pepper sauce. It makes everything taste better.
