    Wow. Absolutely mind blowing African food. Their brunch (best coffee ever) will leave you in a delicious food coma.

    1st visit to the former Cellars location since their move from Carlton Avenue years back. Menu has not evolved much, but still tasty.

    Just to add. Swapped plates with someone for the catfish. So much better. Worth it.

    Don't bother with the fried chicken and pancakes at brunch. Bland and tasteless and not Senegalese influenced. Can get this better pretty much anywhere else. Go with something else. Others happy.

    They moved their location to a bigger space. I recommend the Senegalese fried chicken. Also the scented jasmine rice cake is divine. This dish ranks as the top 10 things I've eaten all year.

    Drab atmosphere and $28 for Cornish game hen with a bit of spice. Not worth it.

    Super delicious. Had the plantain appetizer, fried chicken, & corn pudding for dessert. I definitely recommend all three! And the ginger margarita! The staff is awesome too!

    if they have plantain gnocchi as part of the appetizer specials that night, you MUST order! the senegalese fried chicken is fantastic, don't worry it's not greasy or breaded.. they mean pan-fried :)

    One of the best restaurants in Brooklyn. Senegalese-American fusion food creates some interesting combinations. The brunch is also excellent. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Taste - Senegalese fried chicken, a chicken breast that had been peppered, then broiled,salsa - cabbage and pineapple - added acid, as did the Dijonnaise sauce, mouth-puckering in a good way. Read more

    Kitchen is really good at cooking fish so that it stays moist with good crusty skin

    The food here is amazing. My favs so far are the lamb shank, salmon, chicken wings, and the plantains. OMG the plantains!
