We pass around this restaurant a lot but were kept away by the “Wild dog” sign outside. Finally decided to try it. The service is probably the best in Douala. The waitresses are super attentive and friendly. The service is quick. The restaurant itself looks...More

Food was okay lacking in variety. I went there much as a kid and its lost its allure. No major improvements just bland. They're not doing much to wow anyone or the ppl r complacent. Either way we have no choices

We've been to the this restaurant twice--once as a family, the other time with a group of business associates. Consistently good food and friendly service. The menu is somewhat limited, but what's there is well prepared. We particularly liked the tempura fried shrimp--excellent. The sushi...More
