Disgusting Food and a Rip off! The prawns have a bad smell clearly off and the sauce is also not cooked well. Corn flour as well is uncooked - Dynamite Tempura is really not good. When I mentioned I need a refund so to the...lady said that is not possible! Great Customer Service ... and I guess a nice way to cut cost for crap food and charge an arm and a leg!More

I was with a big group and we ordered a lot of food to be shared. All of it was excellent and the total meal ended up being pretty inexpensive given how much we ordered. Definitely would recommend.

In my opinion, Le Palais is the best VFM restaurant in Kinshasa! I usually order food from them once or twice a week, and don't miss a chance to go there for either work lunches or dinner with mates while watching football. The restaurant upstairs...has a great atmosphere, the staff are very friendly and quick, hence why it can get very busy in the evenings. I would recommend to try their hummus beiruti, fatoush (salad), and grillade mixte (different types of meat). They also have very nice shawarmas, falafels and taouks.More

Fantastic mezze and shisha. For business and family. Sushi also has a great reputation at Le Palais. Do not leave Kinshasa without a visit there!

What a little gem. Looked very quiet but the roof area was buzzing with locals and ex-pats. Delicious sushi menu and Great cocktails. But beware the cocktails carry a punch!

An interesting restaurant in Kinshasa. It is 50/50 Lebanese and Sushi, two cuisines that you would normally not expect to see together. But both are excellent in taste, well prepared and well served. In particular the sushi is surprisingly good with a wide variety of...options. Well set dining facilities, lots of space, good aircon, pleasant ambiance. The one downside was the speed of service. Some of us were served fast and others ended up waiting for their plates a long time. In fact some arrived after others had finished their meals! Gets 4 stars because of the food but lucky given the service oddness.More

It was Sunday night and nothing else was likely to be open because it was past ten pm. We were lucky the kitchen closed at 23:00. My meal was very good (fajitas) thought the chicken mix was full blended. I often like to build them...myself.More

The restaurant is beautiful, in front of a swimming-pool. For the food, I am really sorry but something went wrong. I ordered humus, falafel, Lebanese bread and taboulé. My friend ordered chicken legs. When we received our dishes, we found out that there wasn't any...couscous in the taboulé. We called a waitress but she couldn't understand what we meant. I am a native French speaker and my friend is fluent in Lingala. We called the manager. He came and we told him that we had never seen or heard of a taboulé like that. He nodded and said he would ask the cook to make another one. He left with the false taboulé. We started to eat the chicken legs, with humus and bread. We weren't pleased because the chicken was too greasy and the humus too oily. About twenty minutes later, another waitress came to our table with the very same taboulé that had been brought away. "Is this a joke?" I asked. - No, it wasn't a joke. They had brought back the false taboulé! I tried to eat a little bit, but it felt like eating grass... Well, and a few hours later, I got a stomachache and I had to throw up. A very unfortunate story... Something went wrong.More
