We were a group of 25 visiting the restaurant. The food was excellent (a kind of tapas system, where you could always ask for more of a specific dish, but you got so much food that almost nobody asked for more). Interesting flavors, variation of spicy and non spicy.
Service was professional and friendly.
Waiters started to sign at one point in time, which created a special atmosphere.

This was a great experience. Many many different delicious dishes from different areas of Africa. AND, to end the evening, a joyous dance by the staff. Our twelve person tour group loved it

A great experience. Loved the food and the décor. Service was amazing. Colourful. Fun times. Get your face painted! We were on an upper floor and it got rather warm in the room so we just opened a window.

I went because I heard the restaurant was very good. When I arrived alone, the lady in the reception told me that there was no reservation under the name I was indicating (which I an understand if there were complete) but she didn't even allow me to enter and see if the rest of my table was there. When I ask if I could connect to the wifi network to call a taxi, she said no (I am a woman and I was alone, it is no surprise that the city is dangerous for a girl at night so that's why I was asking internet only to ask for my taxi), when I asked if there were other restaurants around, she just said 'no' (when actually there was one next to ....). These places are for tourists and they should help tourists if needed not to deny a 1 minute wifi, what was the harm on that? I just wanted to ask for a taxi to drive me safely to the hotel!
