“good, but a more descriptive menu would be helpful”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Cute, casual place. Flavors are spot on Indian/African. They do some twists with some of their menu items that are unexpected that it would be helpful if described on menu (ie. kibbe is deep fried and the size of a siver dollar, and this weekend was actually pumpkin kibbe not lamb or ground beef as expected. We had ordered the kibbe from the alacart menu so wasn't expecting a portion of the pumpkin kibbe that was on the entree menu.) Just be sure to ask . Service was friendly.

“Great Food Great Service!”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Loved this place! It was a nice change of scene for those with adventurous taste buds - although, I am pretty sure anyone could find something good to eat on their menu. Great wine and beer selection too and they sell their sauces!

“Pricey but good”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 via mobile

Nice little cafe with an eclectic menu.
Not cheap but nothing in Ptown. Reccomend the bunny chow and iced tea

“Tasty appetizers, entrees just average.”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We had the combo platter for appetizers, which were delicious. My partner had the peri-peri shrimp, which were good, but lacked that extra kick. I had the bobotie, which to me seemed like a rather bland dish slightly reminiscent of lasagna. I can't vouch for the authenticity of the dish, but it wasn't quite my thing.
