This was one of the most disappointing meals we had in Africa. As pointed out by some of the other reviews, the dishes were over complicated and flavors conflicting. My husband had the beef which was too salty and almost inedible; we did provide feedback...More

I entered in this restaurant when I saw the germinated seeds from the window. It was a good pick! The atmosphere is nice, the service very good and the dish was awesome. Healthy, creative and tasty.

This restaurant is a foodie experience. The food is exquisitely presented Service is excellent. Very unusual combination of food which may not suit all palates. We went with friends and everyone enjoyed their evening. There is a 2 or 3 course menu.
