when i first saw the name I was really excited after being so many times in the same restaurant in Sharm el Sheikh. Although I wasn't not pleased at all during and after dinner. We were a 10 people table, the only ones inside and still we had a too long wait for our food. Sushi was not as good... More

The sushi and the staff were just one word 'Superb', unfortunately I cant remember his name but this dark English-speaking gentleman in glasses is the bomb, his product knowledge, interpersonal skill and general etiquette was just great. i'll definitely be returning to this place. LOVED IT!!

Very fresh and tasty asian food in the beautiful place of corniche of Dakar plateau. The Little Buddha team is kind and welcoming guests. If you want to enjoy longer, the lounge offers "soirees" on Friday and Saturfay.

I had dinner and took a good tuna twice, the first time it was too cooked the second perfect. The prices are a bit exageratedS. Saff is nice and friendly, deco is nice too. Convenient when staying at the Radisson.

First time last time,The quality and price are Bad!!. poor service English speaking staff try but wait times and bringing the wrong dishes and they dont seem to care. Its a tourist trap. You can find far better places to eat and spend half the money, It reminds me of Indian fast food in a country in Europe.

There is nothing to criticize really, the personnel does try, but the cuisine is not accomplished. The taste is lacking in refinement (for the price), the presentation is lacking elegance (for the price). But if you are in the mall and hungry, it is ok to stop by for a meal.

With so many good food options, there is no reason to eat at this large, impersonal restaurant. The food was average and I won't bother to go back

Being next to our hotel, Radisson Blu I expected that the restaurant would be just as amazing but what a let down it was! The waitresses were very stand offish and not friendly at all. The look and decor of the restaurant is beautiful with a large Buddha statue so imagine my confusion when throughout my meal all we heard... More

Wow. Some of the worst food I've ever had in Dakar, and definitely the worst, soggiest, tasteless veggie maki or edamame of my LIFE. To top it off, it cost 2x that of other places. My partner's meal was equally as bad - so was no fluke. The upside was, the staff were all super nice. ;) Also, maybe it's... More

I ordered a spicy tuna roll to go. It was not good. There was precious little tuna in it, it wasn't "spicy" (i.e., it was a straight tuna roll, not the spicy sauce/chopped tuna mix), and the rice, of which there was way too much, was too sticky. I've had supermarket sushi that was far superior to this. My friend... More
