Great food and experience! It was lovely to have had my food chosen in advance (by my husband) and so to have a fabulous surprise at each course. Not too spicy and lovely plantain. The hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly.

We went for my birthday and we're very impressed with the range of food on offer. I would recommend going for the banquet option if you're not familiar with the cuisine as you get a taste of everything.

Any concern about whether the new location in Gloucester Park would change this special restaurant was dispelled last night. Wanja produced a series of delicious and spicy dishes for our group of friends with her usual warmth and friendliness. This is the start of a new venture for this unique place which deserves to do well. Highly recommended.

The chef said that, providing we weren't fussy and were happy to eat what he could offer us, he could accommodate us - an exciting concept! We had one of the best meals we've ever had, were entertained by a very knowledgeable... More
