    “Absolutely amazing. This is my first experience eating African food & I just want more. I've had jerk chicken, but the Lemon Jerk Chicken was so well flavored. I'm hooked on Jollof rice & Maafe. I love Panang Thai curry & this felt like the African equivalent & quite possibly a step above. Hearty, delicious, and amazing when you mix them together.
    
    If you don't try this place, you just don't want good food. Top Notch” - Sean C.
