Words cannot describe this amazing culinary experience!!!! The best dinner I've ever had in Dakar, frankly. The food was a fusion of thought ful Asian and European dishes. The flavors were excellent excellent excellent. i cant express how much we enjoyed each bite of food. Try the Assiete Mokai, yakitori, croustillant de chevre..... But our favorite was the dessert fondant au chocolat!!!!!!! I will be coming back here again and again. Felicitations chef Khalil!

Got takeaway prawn noodles and thai beef, both were vile, really bad food, super greasy, felt sick afterwards. I'm sure resto quite nice but the stuff i got was really not good.

Great menu with a lot of choices!! Everything we tried was right on point and the subtle mix between spices, fruits and savory fresh ingredients makes you want more and more! A must to try when you are in town!

This is an asian restaurant which is being managed by libanese (as far as i remember) the food quality was good.
The location of the restaurant is not very good. Ambiance is average, prices are high comparing with Dakar restaurants

You will find here a lot of passion in the presentation of menu specialties. There is a successful mix between local flavors and Lebanese diversity.
It is not easy to find the place and standing in front of entrance nothing anticipate the quality of food. The place has no windows and this is somehow awkward. Although this is a gastronomical experience.
Taste the the a la menthe!
