“Has potential”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

I think that this place really has potential; I think it just needs a little fix-up. The service was great and the waitstaff really friendly. I had the prawn curry with vegetables which was really good and my husband had the seafood curry with okra- bad mistake. The seafood was not very fresh but in retrospect it was silly of us to order something like that in a mid-stream restaurant in Windhoek. I really like this place though and can't wait for it to get a little shake up.

“Great African food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

It is a unique experience in Windhoek, where you get the feeling of really being in Africa rather than sitting in a franchise restaurant. I just love the Chicken Mafwe!
Price wise it is not cheap but is well worth it!

“awesome curries and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

We had lunch at this place and while we were the only ones - the service seemed to be very good and attentive.We ordered vegetarian curry and the Cameroonian curry and they were both freshly prepared and delicious.

I would recommend this place for people looking for good lunch and dinner options at a good price in Windhoek.

“Tasty!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

Menu offered some interesting african choices - the Congolese curry was great. Service was fine. Restaurant (indeed the whole city) was empty when we visited, so not much atmosphere but i think we were unlucky.

“Fish dishes are definitely out in this restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

I ordered oven fish but instead got a microwave fish. The meat dishes were ok. The service is average. They had a lot of dishes on the menu but had run out of the ingredients.
