This was my first experience with food from Senegal and I was totally happy with my choice of Yassa Chicken, the Jollef rice was great as were the plantains. I am looking forward to going back and trying their other dishes.

The food was really tasty. The Yassa chicken was well seasoned. However, it was a bit tough for my taste. No matter, the place is great. Loved the cabbage. Try it.

Like eating in your auntie's kitchen - great food with tons of homey atmosphere. The value is super; each entree is more than enough for two. I love the cabbage!
