We had a nice dinner, great African food! Good level of service, a nice stage where a singer entertains with modern African music, and everybody can contribute freely

Typical Cameroonian cuisine but with some twists. Viper available on the menu. Big room with hundreds of seats and every night a concert. Service is quite slow but price are ok. Mix of internationals and locals. Definitively a place to try
