Beware - website out of date. Opening times incorrect. We travelled ten miles to eat and it was closed. Needs further research.

The restaurant is informal and friendly, the staff are friendly, the menu is small and pricey but vegetarian/vegan friendly. Most of all, the food is amazing. To me it was something completely new and I had never had Senegalese food before but I loved it.

The food is excellent. We tried veggie, fish and meat dishes and they were all amazing. The sea bass was cooked to perfection, so if you like fish you should definitely try the pecheur. We also tried the Senegalese chicken curry and the veggie mafe...More
