    They have great fried plantains, even though it's not on the menu.

    The collard greens are a must. Get them or you will be missing out.

    Got the fried tilapia. Really good. The sides were amazing. Loved the flatbread.

    Each of the Sambusas are delicious, but I liked the pineapple and beef best. Lamb curry is also very good.

    Food is great! Service for us was a bit slow, but it was a Thursday night and may have been unusually busy.

    The hominy with beans, coconut lentils, the Keema beef, and lamb were all very flavorful!

    Trying to break away of eating Asian food and instead, I decided to eat African instead for lunch. The tilapia was worth eating!

    Jungle fries!!!

    Great value and very authentic. I would stick to veggie or vegan dishes. The meat is a little fatty. The wait staff is super friendly. I highly recommend.

    Grilled tilapia fillet is awesome and inexpensive. Pair with collard greens and corn cake.

    Stay away from the crazy tough goat. But sambusas and plantains were delish

    Sambusas, Chicken skewer, and beef curry. ALWAYS go for the sukuma wiki (collard greens & cabbage) and nyoyo side (beans & hominy) Related to Indian food but with more tomatoes. Ample street parking.
