Mix between African and Asian cuisine. You have the same concept also in the interior design. Very interesting menu including exciting meat choices: zebra, crocodile, ... We tried the green curry and the tuna filet. Very delicious and nicely presented. The mango mousse was the perfect dessert. Good wine list including an excellent Pinotage. Very nice owner and staff.

Restaurant run in fusion style. Asian and African food served in very modern style. Great selection of wines. The selection of home made rums is served to finish the food! Wonderful!

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Basel. There is a very eclectic range of meat and fish on the menu and the food quality is excellent. To round off the evening they always give you a couple of shots of their home brewed liquers. Don't be fooled by the outside - this really is a lovely restaurant.

We celebrated our birthday tonight at this wonderful place. The food was again excellent, different style curries and Asian fusion food at the best level. The service is very attentive. I can highly recommend the African curry as well as the Asica curry.

The food is pretty good, mostly because there is a lack of interesting cuisine in Basel. We had the appetizer platter and I had the Tanjine. The Tanjine was really good but was not a tradiional tanjine. My wife thought her salad was just OK. The service however was really slow and I do not know why. We were one... More

Varied menu which included exotic items such as a crocodile burger, as well as a selection of intriguing cross-cultural offerings, for example an African strudel. The culinary ideas were interesting and the food did not disappoint. The service however fails to deliver on the global inclusivity this place is trying so hard to project. The owner paid a lot of...
