Never having eaten African food, I never would have selected it on my own. But a friend highly suggested we go. So very glad we did. Had the leaf & beef on fufu and discovered that fufu is plantain dumplings (who knew?). I have a...More

I was meeting an old friend for lunch and he suggested Sav's. I was familiar with it but had never eaten there. I got a rice bowl and it was very good!

I have not African food but for DC in sometime. This was a facinating experience. Highly recommend the peanut goat meat and fried plantains.

This place is so much more than a restaurant. It is a community meeting place, sharing of cultures, and meeting new friends. Run by a family building bridges in the community, you can enjoy great food and company. Try it out some time.
