Really busy Place most of the time, very popular with Tourists, but also with the locals. The street outside is quite busy as well. All food we ate there was good, especially the more expensive couses. Try some chicken dishes served on the smoking hot iron plates. Worth it.

Good food but in our view 800d for the stir fry in a 'Baltic dish/ skillet' was a little over priced. It was very nice! Just not quite in line with everything else. We would return. Good service.

The African Queen is always packed although no music this place is so popular if you buy a sizzler it is far too big for one person to eat so get one to share - miss the garlic butter though that they served a couple of years ago with the bread but we always come here at least twice on... More

Although there was nothing wrong with the food, unless you go for the comparably expensive sizzler chefs specials, the food was nothing special and the service was at times lacking. Compared to the outstanding food and service we have had elsewhere in Kokoli this restaurant was a disappointment.

Have eaten here before but I have to say from the hosts to the food everything is top notch. The Sizzlers are 800 dalasi which is about £16.00 but by god its worth it. Succulent strips of beef in a peppercorn sauce on a bed of cabbage and onion which is soaking up the juices on a hot metal skillet.... More
