We arrived at 19:00 and ordered within a few minutes. Only the starters as the waiter wouldn't take the orders for the main courses. The place was about 40% full, no more. At 19:50 we got the two crispy chicken wings and the chicken livers....More

A colorful restaurant with a lovely authentic African ambience. Friendly staff with quick, efficient service. We enjoyed our meals(beef and chicken curries). Definitely worth a visit.

We had a traditional "stew" which was really nice, not overly spicy but well flavoured and well cooked. Got busy quite quickly we were lucky we got in just before it started to fill up.
