They didn't say they were closed for vacation. It was a frustrating experience. The street was empty.
Fabulous and creative African cuisine with fun drinks and great service. Casual and friendly atmosphere. Live music on the last friday of each month should not be missed.
Excellent, interesting food. Good service. Great value! Worth the trek.
Wonderful atmosphere, friendly service and amazing food ! Will definitely be back and also use for event catering.
Fun Place! Food not too spicy, lots of onions, lamb Yassa was really good. Kenyan beer was good. Don't be put off by the funky neighborhood. Take a cab/Uber/Lyft.
The yogurt dessert was not too sweet but very bland - probably authentic!
The decoration and music immediately revealed how much Senegal culture (via slaves) formed much of todays Caribbean culture.
Interesting and nice experience!
No one in our party of 3 had eaten "West African cuisine" before we went, although one had been to South Africa. All of us enjoyed it, all sampled one another's entrees and we like all three. On that basis, it was a very tasty and enjoyable dinner.
This was my second time at the restaurant. I had lunch before and dinner this time. We asked for some help in ordering, since we weren't familiar with Sengalese cuisine. We ordered Bibi with lamb and it was excellent. We also had the one with the peanut sauce, it was very good, but had too much sauce (gravy) for me. I will definitely order the bibi next time. We also asked for non-alcoholic drinks. He suggested juices and he mixed the hibiscus with ginger--it was perfect! It was a quiet night, so things were quiet. I will be back to try some other new things (Along with the bibi) next time.
Really great food, fun atmosphere for celebration & dancing after dinner. Delicious home made drinks!
I celebrated my birthday here and enjoyed every moment! Dinner was delicious and dancing afterwards was so much fun!
The food and service were great. I was able to have a great conversation with my date. The ambiance was nice. Though we did not stay for the live entertainment, it was nice to know that there was a place we could come back to for that. We took leftovers, and though sometimes leftovers look horrendous the next day, our food did not, which led me to believe that not too much of the bad stuff was used. The drinks were really good. Not too sweet, which was nice.
We ordered the Seafood Coco and the Baobab Gambas. The Coco was quite good, however the Gambas was fairly bland. Unfortunately, the service was so incredibly apathetic that we will not be returning. Our food came out quickly, which was great, but then our server did not return to our table for OVER AN HOUR. My partner had to go to the bar with our cups to ask for more water. Our server finally came to take our dishes and bring the check, but then resumed ignoring us. We finally waved down another server to run our credit card.
food is tasty but would like more fish and less rice. Music is too loud hard to carry out a conversation asked them to turn it down but still too noisy.
excellent food; good service; cozy seating; value for portions provided were great and excellent fried tilapia
Good overall experience! Appetizers a bit disappointing. But meals were very tasty. Tho not look so good.
WE went on a thurs eve. So no live music. Next time for sure. That must be fun
really interesting- the flavors are familiar, yet very different at the same time. try it. go. now.
