We have been there many times and the food was always great, the servers are very attentive. I love the vindaloo chicken and the hot beef ribs. I would recommend The Safari Grill who likes a lovely food experience.

This place is overrated. The service is poor with one server serving 10 plus tables and the owner is uptight with attitude. If you are looking for east african cuisine that is better than try Africana or Tiffin Curry and Roti House. We have had...More
