The chef(s) here will offer the guarantee of a great meal everytime. BOJ is really a good restaurant and unlike most places in Douala they will take credit card (VISA and Mastercard). Don't be fooled however, the food is extremely expensive. It is not even funny. Even to US standards it is quite pricey, but hey, you pay for what... More

Service was good and friendly and then the live band came on and it was perfect. We had an absolutely fantastic night. The band was... More

Visited along with the clients for a Business Talk. The downstairs is of Live Band music with Bar type setup and the first floor serves as resturant. Good Ambience enjoyed the Food. The even suggest their Food of the Day. I love particularly the Crab starters. Mostly i have seen only business peoples are there. Worth visiting.

They know their stuff and are real professionals. Nothing to compare with other restaurants in Douala. Food was simply delicious...My colleague had a typical french dish "Blanquette de veau" and it was real excellent and... More

I've been living in Douala permanently since September and have been to Le BOJ three times: twice with a group of friends who has lived in France, Canada, Italy for years and once with a Cameroonian friend. We all love Le BOJ and will be back again. The foods are correct. As many have said, the portions are smaller--like tapas--but... More
