This is a West African restaurant specializing in fufu which is traditional food found in countries like Nigeria and Ghana. Fufu consists of your choice of starch like yams or potato or others and basically you use your fingers to pinch off some of it and dip it into a sauce like peanut or some kind of stew and can be served with vegetables or meat. There are finger bowls of water to wash your fingers in between dipping. To me it's a really fun and different (and new) experience to eat like this.
The other specialty is injera, Ethiopian spongy bread that sits on a platter with your choice of meats and vegetables like lentils or collard greens, you then rip off a bit of the bread and use it to pick up the meat and veg. They only do this on Fridays.
Talking Drums also serves Caribbean foods, but I haven't tried any of them. There is a selection of African beer and wine too, which is nice. On one side of the restaurant there is a little grocery with cans and bottles and boxes and bags of foods used in African food prep. There is also some fresh foods.
The best part of this restaurant is the super friendly guys who work there. Our waiter was a tall, handsome guy who was very polite, funny and personable. He gave us attentive service while not hovering. I tipped more than I normally would just because he was so nice to my party.
