Great food, HUGH portions, what a treat. Found a new food destination while visiting Cincinnati. It's a must if you're looking for something different.

I lived in New York and ate Senegalese food. Was very happy to move to Cincinnati and find a comparable restaurant.

My parents live in Cincinnati and my dad introduced me to this restaurant about 5 years ago on a visit. Since then, I come to this restaurant at least once whenever I visit. The food is always very delicious and the portions are large. I have noticed changes over the years, but nothing bad. I have only gone for lunch... More

The chicken is ALWAYS moist and tender. I usually order the chicken brochette or grilled lamb. Both are delicious and full of flavor. I also get white rice and cabbage on the side.

Everything you want out of the small hole in the wall place: authentic, delicious, dingy, and swarming with foreign languages. Truly delicious Senegalese cuisine at $7/plate (enormous portions) and very delicious spicy ginger give for $2. I'm here at least every month.

Delightful meals for $10. The employees are very nice. I always get the fried tilapia fish (head on) with couscous as a side item. The brown onion sauce is very tasty (I always ask for extra brown onion sauce) It's always a delight to eat in instead of carrying out.

Excellent meal, best you'll find for $10. BYOB. Don't go if you are expecting a quick meal. You'll have to wait, but it's worth it.

Very nice authentic Senegalese food. Long wait but well worth it. Highly recommend calling ahead.
